The application of synthetic turf is becoming more and more popular. The price of synthetic turf has gone down significantly in the last ten years. There are a lot of different choices on the market today, and Total Landscape Design can help you choose the right one.
A synthetic lawn is a good option for those who do not want to deal with the hassle of mowing. Synthetic turf does not grow obviously, so there is no need to hire a company to come and mow it every few weeks. This will save you money in the long run on cost of maintenance.
Just like a mulching surface synthetic turf covers soil and prevents weeds from popping up. It blocks the sun and provides a physical barrier between the ground, and the open air. This again will help you save money because you will not have to spray for weeds. Just another wonderful benefit of a synthetic lawn.
There are a variety of types of synthetic lawn to choose from. Every style looks like healthy grass in its prime, and stays that way with virtually no maintenance. It is impossible to distinguish a synthetic lawn from a tradition one because the technology is so good. The feel of it even mimics natural grass. You will wake up every day to grass that is perfectly green, and at the same length. We are always happy to recommend some of our favorite and most natural looking synthetic turf.
Another benefit from synthetic turf is it does not need to be watered at all. Over half of your water bill can be attributed to watering your lawn, and you will save money not having to water your synthetic turf. Not using water to keep your lawn green and healthy is also good for the environment. Synthetic lawn obviously does not need any type of fertilization which again saves you money, and prevents unused fertilizer from washing into the natural ecosystem. Fertilizers are attributed to large algae blooms in the ocean because they wash out of your lawn, make their way to the coast, and the nitrogen contained within the fertilizer fuels plankton growth. When these plankton are in the process of blooming they consume a lot of oxygen from the water, creating dead zones that are void of this essential life giving element.
Synthetic turf can be used in unison with traditional sod. You may choose to have a patch in the front yard of synthetic turf so that your home, villa, office, or commercial space is always looking as good as possible. A traditional sod lawn can be installed in the backyard to give you a more natural feel when playing catch with the kids, walking barefoot in the yard, or entertaining guest with a barbeque. The combination of both can give you the real feel of a traditional lawn, with the low maintenance of a synthetic turf.
The initial cost of a synthetic lawn is more expensive than a traditional one. There is a substantial savings over time because you are not spending money on mowing, watering, fertilizing, and weed control. There are a lot of things to consider when choosing a synthetic lawn, but if you like a low maintenance yard that simply always looks good then synthetic turf might be the best option for you. Other people just simply prefer the look and feel of a traditional lawn.
Synthetic turf has been used for a long time in sports, and is finally making its way into the public consumer. This is an attractive option because there is very little hassle owning a synthetic lawn. You do not have to fertilize, cut, or water it and weeds will never pop up out of nowhere. You can expect to get roughly 20 years of hassle free use out of your synthetic turf. Of course this depends on how much traffic your lawn gets. That is pretty good considering that you will have to do literally nothing to it that whole time aside from clearing debris and leaf litter off of it from time to time.
