THE BEST THINGS ABOUT ARTIFICIAL TURF IS ...
One of the main reasons artificial turf has become so popular, especially out West, is because of the water savings it offers. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a household’s irrigation water use can be as high as 60 percent and it is estimated that landscape irrigation accounts for one-third of all residential water use.
The Southern Nevada Water Authority estimates that every square foot of natural grass replaced saves 55 gallons of water per year. Natural turf proponents have admitted that people often water their grass too much, making synthetic turf the winner on this point.
Gone are the days of where synthetic turf would stick out like a sore thumb and everyone could tell in an instance it was fake. Nowadays artificial turf options are almost limitless and can fool about anyone who looks at it.
Synthetic turf is UV stabilized to protect against color fading. Unlike natural turf that will have to deal with diseases, drought and dormancy, artificial grass has the benefits of looking great 24/7 all year long. It can also be used to spruce up spaces where it isn’t feasible to grow a lawn, like on rooftops.
Natural lawns can be fickle and demanding, needing much tender loving care to stay looking their best, but synthetic turf is far less needy.
Artificial turf can put up with heavy use and can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years according to most distributors. It also does not provide a habitat for lawn pests like insects, moles and gophers, who can damage a natural lawn.
