Short on Time? Artificial Grass may be the Solution.

fake grass saves time and water
 

The demand for artificial grass for landscaping is growing at 10 to 15 percent per year. This has been stimulated by several factors, including the desire for lower maintenance, an all weather surface, and the recent droughts in the country that have led to a serious water shortage.

Modern artificial turf offers high quality surfaces, a realistic appearance, and long life which is why it makes perfect sense for gardeners who are strapped for time. That’s because artificial grass requires minimal maintenance and frees gardeners to focus on other tasks such as tending to flower gardens, home maintenance, and business. It’s a smart choice that saves both time and water, and it looks good too!

Synthetic turf frees dog owners of the hassles of protecting natural grass, such as when grass dies or turns yellow from urine.

The Impact of Artificial Turf on the Sporting World

In 1966, the Astrodome made history when artificial turf was installed in the stadium as a solution to replacing dead and painted grass. Since its inception, “Astro Turf,” as it was originally called, has advanced through three generations. The first generation was made up of short-pile fibers without the infill, the second generation included sand infill, and the current and third generation of synthetic turf systems features a combination of sand and rubber infill. With today’s synthetic grass looking and feeling more like natural grass, requiring less maintenance, providing better drainage, and allowing for multi-purpose sports programs, the appeal is evident.
