Every year an increasing number of homeowners are turning to synthetic lawns, such as the landscape turf from Terza. Artificial grass is great for multiple purposes and it provides homeowners with a variety of benefits. If you’re considering artificial turf for your home, business property, or event management location, here’s what you need to know about this landscape solution.
What Is Artificial Grass?
Artificial grass is made of filaments threaded into a backing that allows water to penetrate through. This backing is laid upon a drainage layer, such as gravel, and firmly attached along the perimeter. It is then filled with recycled crumb rubber or sand to prevent it from being blown away by strong winds or storms. Synthetic grass can be made of polyethylene, nylon, or polypropylene that is coloured to mimic the look of various types of grass. Some artificial grass even includes a thatch layer that makes it look more authentic. Artificial grass can be used for lawns, dog parks, play areas, rooftops, pool surroundings, putting greens, and decorative boarders between patio pavers.
Artificial Lawn Maintenance and Benefits
Artificial grass provides a virtually maintenance-free landscape for multiple purposes. If you’re tired of watering, fertilizing, weeding, and trimming real grass, this may be the landscape solution for you. It is also good for people who want to save costs on their summer water bills, eliminate the use of chemical fertilizers and herbicides, and simply believe it looks just as good as real grass. In terms of cost, landscape turf carpet may have a large initial cost (about $5 to $20 per square foot), but it’s relatively cost-free for the rest of its lifetime (nearly 20 years). Synthetic grass is also beneficial for people who are physically unable to mow their lawns and for homeowners who travel often. It’s ideal for people who have dogs (the grass cannot be dug up), for swimming pool areas (no mud), for high wear-and-tear areas, and for event management sites.
