Benefits of Artificial Turf for Residential Lawns

Many homeowners think about replacing their current natural turf with an artificial option to cut down on maintenance. Though this is one of the major benefits to having this type of turf installation, there are other benefits that you might want to consider first. In fact, many of the benefits may let you know if the choice of artificial or synthetic grass is right for your home and your landscaping needs. Here are a few of those benefits to consider, and what to know about each one:

Reduced Allergies

One of the leading producers of allergies in your landscape is your natural grass. It can grab and trap pollen, dust and other debris that can create sinus issues, such as coughing, sneezing, watery eyes and painful sinus headaches. If you or someone in your home suffers from these types of allergies, then artificial turf installation may be ideal. The turf doesn't have the issues of trapping the debris and pollen that grass does. It also can be easily rinsed off if there is a high pollen count for that day or that week. It also cuts back on weeds and plants that can cause allergies throughout the year.

Reduced Need for Chemicals

When you have a natural grass turf, keeping that turf lush and green can be difficult. In fact, it may end with you having to use chemicals on your lawn. These chemicals may be dangerous or even harmful to you and your pets. If you are concerned about having to use these chemicals and fertilizers to keep your lawn looking green and lush, then you may appreciate the benefit of an artificial turf installation. The turf doesn't require chemicals and can keep its look year round and can be easily maintained.

Increased Water Conservation

You may live in an area that believes in strong water conservation during the hotter months of the year. You may also find that your water bills and related expenses are much higher during the spring and summer, to the point of causing you to try to reduce your water use where your landscaping is concerned. With an artificial turf installation, you do not need water to maintain the turf and you can limit using it to cleaning and maintenance.

These are just a few of the benefits of going with an artificial turf installation for your residential landscape. If you think this option may be right for you, contact your local landscaping turf provider. They can help you with options, maintenance information and questions you may have about the installation itself. They can also make suggestions for different upgrades you might want to consider.
