You may be surprised by how many people are switching form natural grass to fake grass lawns – both homeowners and commercial property owners. At All Season Turf we know that many people have questions about this option. They wonder how it works, how much it costs, and whether it actually looks natural. You can always contact All Season Turf at (866) 365-8873 for answers to your specific questions but read on to get answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.
How much does it cost to install artificial grass?
That depends on what options you choose, how much you need, and other factors. I does require an investment but that investment can pay off quickly. Think about how much you spend on water to keep your lawn looking great, equipment to keep it maintained, and the time wasted in constantly trying to keep up with it. All of that is erased when artificial grass is installed.
Does artificial grass drain?
Yes. In fact, it drains more efficiently than real grass does. This is due to the porous lining that lets the water drain straight from the surface to the subsoil. It is then absorbed into the materials that are part of our built-in drainage system. There, the moisture is captured and it slowly seeps further into the soil. On the other hand, natural grass encourages wasteful runoff – not absorption of the water. This superior drainage also means an end to puddles, mud, and other unsightly issues.
Can pets use artificial grass?
Yes, our fake grass is very pet friendly. It drains, as explained above, and is entirely dig proof. It is also very strong, durable, and can stand up to whatever your dog does to it. It is also easy to simply pick up solid droppings. When needed, the lawn can be hosed off to get it clean again. What’s more, insects do not like artificial grass – this means an end to ticks and fleas making your lawn their home and getting on your pets.
Does artificial grass require a lot of maintenance?
The maintenance required is nothing compared to what you must do for natural grass. Once it is installed, you can get rid of your mower, other lawn care equipment, and chemicals you’ve used to treat your lawn for so many years. Keep your rake, leaf blower, and stiff broom so that you can easily get rid of debris from the surface. When it comes time to be cleaned, all you have to do is grab the hose and rinse it off.
