Benefits of Artificial Turf

There is nothing like the feeling of well-maintained grass under your feet, however, we know the amount of maintenance required for a perfectly manicured lawn! A great alternative to traditional grass is artificial turf. Artificial turf has come a long way in the past 10 years, with the newest generations available in an array of textures, colours and blade length. You’d never believe it was artificial! Although as landscapers we’ll always prefer real turf, there are some great benefits to artificial turf:

  1. No maintenance! Artificial turf doesn’t require any cutting, fertilizing, aeriation or top-dressing
  2. No watering is necessary, some brands even claim that artificial turf will help with drainage issues
  3. Always green, artificial turf will be green year-round. No more brown grass in the spring, winter or drought season
  4. Highly durable – artificial turf is highly durable and will stand up against foot traffic, kids, pets and even overexposed or highly shaded areas.

Homeowners are embracing artificial turf more and more these days, and we agree that it makes sense in certain applications. Traditional grass requires a lot of maintenance, and in certain locations, it is nearly impossible to grow grass. Here are some applications that are perfect for artificial turf:

  • Shaded areas
  • Kids playgrounds
  • Pet areas
  • Balconies
  • Extremely small spaces
  • Residential putting greens
  • Outdoor workout areas
