Eliminate Pests with Artificial Grass
The well-known benefits of artificial grass for homeowners are numerous: it’s eco-friendly, cost-effective, low maintenance, etc.
And there are lesser-known benefits that abound as well—including the elimination of pests, from small insects to large rodents.
The construction and materials of artificial grass prevent insects like ants, flies, and mosquitos them from breeding in and overrunning your yard simply because there is nothing there that will attract them.
An artificial grass installation levels out a yard, so there are no puddles or collection spots for stagnant water. This prevents mosquitos from nesting and breeding. Artificial grass comes with a solid drainage system so water can flow away from the yard, preventing pooling and preventing insects that thrive in or near water from breeding in your backyard oasis.
The durable backing of artificial grass also works to prevent access to dirt. And without dirt, insects have no way to build nests or feed. This feature of artificial grass is particularly beneficial to reducing bugs like ants, fleas, and ticks.
Artificial grass also helps to eliminate troublesome wildlife wreaking havoc on your yard. Small animals and rodents like rabbits, gophers, and moles will find it impossible to dig through the infill and backing of your artificial grass lawn and will soon discover artificial grass can’t be eaten. They cannot dig through from the surface either, so replacing natural grass with artificial grass also helps to eliminate mice, raccoons, and chipmunks. Bonus: your dog won’t be able to dig holes in the lawn either.
Not only is artificial grass good at making your lawn more enjoyable, it is a more humane and eco-friendly way to eliminate bothersome pests. You will never need to set a trap or kill an animal to keep them out of your yard. They will voluntarily leave your yard alone.
Before installing artificial grass, it seemed like the only way to deal with pests in a natural lawn was by applying and spraying insecticides and other dangerous chemicals. These toxic chemicals are now known to pose serious health dangers to our pets, our environment, and to us. When you switch to an artificial grass lawn, you won’t have to use harmful insecticides to eliminate pests because there won’t be any pests to eliminate.
