3 Reasons To Consider Synthetic Turf

Maybe your yard is full of dead patches and you want to start a new yard from scratch, or you just bought a new home with nothing but dirt in the backyard. In any case, you need a new yard and are comparing your options, including synthetic turf. Synthetic turf has come a long way in recent years, offering the appearance of natural grass but with additional perks and much more convenience. Here are a few of the biggest reasons to consider synthetic turf for your yard:

Never Water or Mow Again

Perhaps the biggest perk of synthetic turf is that it doesn't need to be watered or mowed. Instead of spending hours a week hand-watering your lawn, mowing the grass, or dealing with cumbersome sprinklers, you will have lush, green grass year-round with no real maintenance or effort. Your water bills will be much lower and you will free up your time as well. If you live in a drought-prone area, you won't have to feel guilty about wasting water or dealing with brown, dead grass during especially hot and dry summers. 

Great for Pets and Kids

Artificial turf is designed to be durable and strong, so you don't have to worry about wear and tear from pets or children. Dogs won't leave annoying brown spots in the synthetic turf or dig it up. Your kids can play sports, run around, and tumble on the artificial grass without any damage. This is especially beneficial when you consider that new sod or seeded grass is very delicate and needs to be treated gingerly for months after being planted. Instead, simply have synthetic turf installed and allow your whole family to enjoy it right away.

Works in Every Environment

Not everyone lives in an environment that is conducive to thriving green grass. Maybe your soil is too rocky or too acidic. Maybe your yard doesn't get enough sunlight during the day because of where it's positioned or your climate is too hot and dry to allow for lush green grass. Instead of giving up your dream of a beautiful green lawn, you can opt for synthetic turf--which works well in any environment or climate.

As you can see, synthetic grass offers several benefits for homeowners. Start with an at-home consultation with your local synthetic turf company to help decide if synthetic turf is the best option for your home and, more importantly, your yard.
