Synthetic turf used to get a bad rap. The “fake grass” of decades ago looked cheap, shiny, and, well, nothing like the real thing. Today that is far from the case as synthetic turf has evolved in every way.
Synthetic turf now is lush, a more natural green, and softer than ever before. As a result, artificial grass is used for much more than personal putting greens or desert landscapes – the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
Here are some thoughts to get the ideas flowing:
Replace your lawn – create an expansive space that always looks beautiful and requires no water, no mowing, and no fertilizers.
Create play spaces for kids and adults alike – synthetic turf is perfect for kids’ play areas, putting greens, bocce ball courts, or soccer fields. It’s perfect for any high-traffic area.
Battle tough-to-grow areas: Everyone has an area where grass doesn’t grow as well, yet synthetic turf will never let you down.
Tame water and erosion issues: Whether you have a place that floods, or a spot where erosion is taking its toll, synthetic turf can help bring stability to trouble spots.
Create a place for Fido: Dogs can wreak havoc on a lawn. Whether dogs create dead spots, dig, or create traffic patterns, growing turf with lasting results is tough. Create a doggie-designated spot and enjoy the easy clean-up!
Perhaps you can predict many of the benefits to synthetic turf:
