Whether you hear it called turf, artificial turf, synthetic grass, synthetic turf, or artificial grass, one aspect is certain: turf has evolved into a stately addition to any property. Artificial grass installation in the residential landscape has a distinct momentum and recent surge of popularity.
Homeowners looking for a consistent and regal accent to their property have leaned in favor of synthetic turf and its attributes for several reasons.
What is Synthetic Turf?:
Synthetic turf is a grass-like overlay which mimics lush, natural grass. It is comprised of a weaving of filaments connected to a porous backing, which is then laid onto a drainage layer and fastened along its perimeter. It can be professionally fit onto various sites as well. The durability provides many years of use and the beauty stays for its lifetime.
Features of Synthetic Turf:
Synthetic turf endures all types of weather better than natural grass. Water flows through it and drains efficiently, which makes synthetic grass withstand wet conditions. It is also not affected by a dry spells in the weather.
“Synthetic turf obviously requires no mowing and very little maintenance,” said Ray Francis of Synthetic Turf of Virginia. “Adding synthetic turf can require fewer chemical inputs, as it does not require any pesticides, fertilizer, or water usage.”
The synthetic fibers are extremely durable against the sun and rain as well. Mildew is never an issue, nor is mold. Your grass never fades or changes color at all.
Common areas for Synthetic Turf:
Artificial turf is not restrictive upon limits; it can be installed virtually anywhere on your property. It is ideal for around a pool, amongst pavers, backyards, around playgrounds, front yards, and more.
Owning your own year round putting green has never been more practical. “We can match any hole on any golf course in the world,” said Francis. “Enjoying a precise personal putting
green has never been so readily available.”
Implementing a pet area is also a featured application artificial turf offers.
