What are the advantages of artificial grass for a lawn?
Synthetic grass (artificial turf) lawns allow you to enjoy a beautiful yard without the inconveniences of a traditional lawn. It doesn’t require mowing, herbicides, or weeds, and it’s weather resistant. It’s fantastic for entertaining guests, and its durability is unrivalled in high-traffic areas.
Is artificial turf prone to fading?
UV inhibitors are added to the fibres of high-quality synthetic turf to prevent fading. While a tiny degree of fading can occur over time, quality artificial grass installation providers will provide a warranty that includes the possibility of fading.
Is it necessary to water artificial grass?
One of the main reasons why so many homeowners, companies, schools, and sports teams select artificial grass over natural grass is to save money on water. Natural grass and sports fields necessitate ongoing upkeep and thousands of gallons of water.
This does not, however, imply that synthetic turf lawns are a water-free alternative. Your artificial grass, for the most part, does not require water. However, you may need or desire to spray your artificial grass lawn on occasion.
Rinsing off dust and dirt, for example, is as simple as spraying with a garden hose. This will also be determined by where you live and the amount of dust there is. The majority of our customers use a spray to clean their cars.
Most of our clients spray their turf once or twice a month to keep it clean and healthy, but if you live in a dusty location, you might need to spray it more frequently.
If you have pet turf, rinse down areas where your pets congregate after eliminating solid waste to keep your artificial grass clean and prevent odours from forming.
What kind of upkeep does synthetic turf require?
Synthetic turf takes very little upkeep. You won’t have to mow at all, weed, re-seed, fertilise, spray chemicals, kill ants and bugs, or water as much.
However, as with most large investments, regular maintenance is required to keep it performing at its best.
For example, you should spray your turf every now and then, clean up spills and pet faeces with ZeoFill promptly, and brush your turf every few months to prevent it from tracking or compressing due to heavy pedestrian traffic.
Is artificial grass suitable for children and pets?
Yes, in a nutshell.
The majority of our customers are looking for artificial grass for their entire family, including their pets and children.
We advise them that our “Cool King” artificial grass is ideal for this. Urine drains swiftly thanks to antibacterial fibre treatment and proper drainage.
On synthetic turf, pet droppings are very readily maintained – simply pick them up or spray them off! Synthetic grass is also quite durable, so your dogs will have a hard time digging or chewing it up.
Another advantage is that it doesn’t cause mud puddles, so you won’t have to deal with muddy paw prints all over your house.
What about heavy metals and other potentially hazardous substances?
No, there are no detectable amounts of lead or other RCRA hazardous waste heavy metals in our synthetic turf products, making them totally safe for all users.
Is it Safe to Use Synthetic Grass Near My Pool? What About Pool Chemicals?
Our grass is ideal around swimming pools because it is unaffected by the water. Chlorine-based chemicals will only harm artificial grass if they come into direct contact with it.
