Effortless and time-saving upkeep of artificial turf proves to be one of the main benefits that many homeowners, businesses, landscapers, and athletes have come to enjoy. Such an investment has a relatively quick return on investment, thus making it cost effective in the long run. Manual labor is cut down significantly, including watering, mowing, and weeding. With labor cut, bills are also reduced, saving a large amount of money over the course of a few years. In a time when many are busy at work and finances are rough due to the economy, synthetic grass is the ultimate solution to conservation.
For many states that undergo crucial droughts and strict requirements for lawn watering, synthetic turf is significantly helpful. Approximately one hour of watering an average household lawn constitutes a total of 220 gallons of water, which can equate to over 30,000 gallons of water a year. A significant part of what contributes to household water bills is simple lawn watering. Synthetic grass does not require a single drop of water, thus enabling households to save on bills and conserve resources. Artificial grass lawns have allowed households to completely get rid of its dependence on water in order to have a healthy looking yard.
Synthetic grass’ drainage system is uniquely designed to automatically drain liquids that come in contact with it. A highly perforated and permeable backing allows turf to filter water through easily, from all angles, horizontally and vertically. Thus, no water collects in the surface or threatens the composition of artificial turf when coming into contact with it. This even includes pet urine, which does not harm synthetic grass whatsoever.
Maintaining the best look of synthetic grass requires making sure that large particles and debris are consistently removed from the surface of the turf. This includes leaves, twigs, and other small objects that have the ability to get stuck in between the blades of artificial turf. Simply manually removing such debris will help to keep the blades natural looking and healthy in appearance. While rain is a natural aid to helping clean off debris, a hose can be used for a few minutes to help remove debris easily. When grass blades seem to not stand up as straight, a brush with hard bristles can be used to brush the blades upright once again. Brushing from one side to the other can help to keep the blades upright.
