Four Things You Will Want To Know Before You Install Artificial Turf In Your Landscape

If you want to have grass in your landscaping design that is easy to maintain and always looks great, artificial grass is a great choice. There are many choices when it comes to artificial turf and some things that you may not know about. If you are considering artificial grass for your landscaping design, here are some things that you will want to consider.

1. Choosing A Quality Turf For Landscaping Design

If you want to have artificial turf for your lawn, there are many different choices of grass. You can have short grass installed that is affordable, but looks manmade. There are also newer turf products that are made to resemble different species grasses. These more natural looking grasses for homes are durable and attractive. If you want to have a nice lawn, it is worth investing in artificial grass that looks more like a real lawn.

2. Soil Mediums For Use With Artificial Grass Installations

There are also different types of soil mediums that can be installed with your artificial grass. This helps give your lawn a natural look and to retain water. The cheapest medium will be a mixture of natural soils and sands. There are also composite materials that are made of plastics and rubbers. The composites will help give your lawn more comfort, while also enhancing it's natural look and helping keep it clean and free of dirt and debris.

3. Irrigation Systems And When To Water Your Artificial Grass

If you have artificial grass, you will also want to have an irrigation system installed. This is to help keep the grass from degrading during hot days-- the water cools it down. You will not need to water your lawn all the time like with real grass, so it is still a water-saving solution for home and business owners. You will probably need to water during the hottest days, and in the areas of your lawn with direct sunlight.

4. Maintaining Artificial Grass For A Long Lasting Landscaping Design

The maintenance of your artificial lawn will consist of watering it when needed, as well as keeping it clean. You will never need to mow it, but you will want to keep things like leaves from trees off the grass. If you have a soil medium with your turf, you may also need to occasionally have more applied to the lawn, as well as aeration. This will help extend the life of your artificial turf.

These are some things that you will want to know before having artificial grass installed in your landscaping.  If you want to have a maintenance-free lawn for your home, contact an artificial turf contractor, like Turf Pro Synthetics, LLC, and ask them about some of these options for your landscaping.

About Me

New Landscape Makes a Yard Feel New Again

Hi. My name is Martha. My husband Leo and I are empty nesters. The last of our three kids moved out of the home about eight years ago. Since that time, we have talked a great deal about retirement and what we wanted to do with our house. The house is slightly too large for just the two of us, but we already have two grandchildren and from the way our kids talk, we are in for plenty more. We have decided to stay in our home since it has plenty of room for our family to come and stay with us from time to time. The one thing we really wanted to change is the backyard. Leo retired last year, and I’ll be retiring in about six months. We are already talking with the landscape contractor, and I’m excited to share some of our plans with you!
