- Artificial Grass and Its Infill Are Toxic
- Artificial Grass is Not Safe for Pets and Kids
- Pet Waste Builds Up and Causes Errors
- You Have Few Landscaping Options if You Install Fake Grass
This is simply false. If you are using a top-quality artificial grass, like the ones you will find with All Season Turf, then it will be manufactured suing only non-toxic materials. In fact, we often use recycled materials, which makes them even better for the environment. There are many infill products on the market that are entirely natural, such as sand or crushed shells.
Once again, this is simply false. As noted above, our products are made with non-toxic materials. Further, artificial lawns do not develop the holes and other surface imperfections that children can trip over when running. It doesn’t get slippery during water, so kids can play safely and without getting muddy.
This is not true. If you are like most pet owners, you pick up your pet’s solid waste whether it is on natural lawn or artificial lawn. As far as their liquid waste goes, you simply rinse it down with a hose and it drains away. There is nothing left on the surface to cause errors – which you cannot say about natural grass. The truth is that artificial lawns are great for pets.
The myth tat you can’t plant a tree in artificial grass are false. Believe it or not, artificial turf is actually a great place to plant a tree. We can also install your grass around any existing trees, shrubs, or other landscaping you have.
Bonus Fun Facts: Artificial Grass is Great for the Environment
Several studies have shown that if you install artificial grass, you can actually help the environment in several ways. For example, if 1,800 square feet of natural lawn was replaced within artificial grass, it would save nearly 100,000 gallons of water every year. To figure out how this would apply to your yard, know that for every square foot of lawn you have, you can conserve an average of 55 gallons of water.
