There are many reasons to love living in Southern California, including the fact that outdoor pools can be used nearly all year long. Most people choose to surround their pool with either grass or gravel. Neither one is perfect but there is a great choice: Artificial grass. Read on to learn why it is such a great choice and then reach out to All Season Turf at (866) 365-8873 if you want a free quote for your own artificial turf.
Artificial grass won’t burn your feet
If you choose to have cement, brick, or even gravel around your pool, then it can get hot enough to burn your feet, the feet of your children, and even the feet of your pets. In fact, these hard substances can get so hot that they heat up the surrounding area, which makes sunbathing and simply relaxing les pleasant.
Artificial grass is safer for people
If you choose a hardscape surface instead of artificial lawn in the backyard, when it gets wet it is likely to get slippery. This can lead to slips and falls and serious injuries. The good news is that artificial grass is soft, it is not slippery, and it drains and dries very fast. You can even install it right over that hard surface you have now.
Artificial grass is safe for surrounding plants
Whether you have a salt water pool or you use harsh chemicals like chlorine, if you spill either type of water you can end up damaging any plants you have nearby. Not only can the chemicals cause issues, but the water itself can create mud that results in erosion.
Artificial grass is much cleaner
Anyone who’s had natural grass near their pool knows how messy it can be. The debris from your lawn mower can get into the pool and the grass can end up muddy, which gest the pool dirty. If you have to use chemicals to maintain your lawn, those chemicals can get into the pool water. All in all, it is a dirtier option than simply using artificial grass.
Artificial grass is beautiful
While practical concerns are important, it is important not to discount how important it is to have a beautiful, inviting backyard. Artificial grass is much more beautiful than hard concrete or gravel. Even when the pool is not being used, the grass will remain bright, green, and beautiful.
