Why choose Landscape Turf
There are plenty of reasons to choose landscape turf.
To be honest though, the best reason is because it’s beautiful.
Let’s face it – water can be expensive, and if you live in an area that experiences drought, it’s not always readily available. Not only that, but constant lawn maintenance can be a drain when all you want to do is enjoy your outdoor area. I say, spend less time caring for your lawn and more time enjoying it!
This is where artificial grass comes in. It stays green all year round and requires very little maintenance. That means no wasting water and no pushing lawnmowers during hot afternoons! Aritifical grass is for enjoyment, simple as that.
What is Landscape Turf?
Landscape turf is a little different than other types of artificial grass. It has certain qualities that make it perfect for your lawn.
Most fake grass for landscape will look like real grass blades. Manufacturers are working hard to make artificial turf look and feel more realistic than ever before. Artificial grass mimics real grasses found throughout the United States. For example, artificial grass that looks like bermuda grass is popular on the West Coast.
Landscape artificial turf is also UV stable and often heat and frost resistant for high durability. It’s made to last outdoors for a very long time! It’s also perforated for drainage and it tends to be more dense and plush than other types of artificial turf. That means the turf won’t get soggy under heavy rain.
Landscape artificial turf is also used indoors or outdoors. Usually, indoor artificial turf is low-pile and not as realistically made. It can even come in different colors! This landscape turf is temporary or installed on patios and is typically not used for entire lawns.
Pros of Landscape Turf:
Bug-be-Gone: You’ve got artificial grass covering your lawn. That means bugs will be a thing of the past. Everybody wants fewer creepy-crawlies when enjoying their yard.
Maintenance Free: One of the best things about artificial grass is that you don’t have to mow or water it. The heat-of-the-day labor is gone for good.
Forever Green: To keep your lawn green, you might end up using more water than your city can afford to lose. No need to sweat a water shortage; this lawn is green without the water.
Eco-Friendly: Artificial grass is made of recycled materials and has a measurable, positive impact on the environment.
Cons of Landscape Turf:
Up-Front Expense: Buying and installing artificial grass can get expensive. You need accessories and time to get the perfect lawn. We like to think it’s worth it though. You’ll find in the long term, it’s actually cheaper!
Heat: When the heat rises, so does the temperature of your artificial turf grass. There are turf fill products to help keep the temperature down, but artificial grass is hotter to the touch than real grass.
