WHY CHOOSE SYNTHETIC GRASS?
It Looks Great
Remarkable esthetic advancements bring to life new markets for artificial grass & golf green products. The realism in appearance and softness underfoot has spawned new sales for chic hotels and bars, notably outdoor patios and large condo rooftops. Becoming more popular are new condos offering green roofs suited for the K9 crowd now that pets are approved in tenancy protocols.
While natural grass is exceptionally vulnerable to deterioration and erosion from both weather and UV effects, from pet waste to foot traffic, artificial landscape grass is an extremely robust alternative. Design Turf is helping launch a new dual-fibre for heavy traffic, daycare centers, schools, commercial and institutional applications. The new Dual Fiber incorporates the technology used for extreme durability for athletic fields but adding an element of softness for homeowners and more gentle settings.
Conserve Our Water
Drought and water conservation are growing concerns almost everywhere, particularly in more arid climates. The newest trend in the landscape industry is xeriscaping, which requires zero water. With artificial landscape grass, you get a product that resembles a natural lawn but doesn’t need watering. Our artificial landscape grass softens the look and feel of the landscape, different than xeriscaping offerings, which tend to be stark and involve stone & rock.
Save Time- No Maintenance
In addition to conserving water, artificial grass also requires much less care than natural grass. Once the artificial landscape grass is put in place, there’s no need for edging, mowing, or other maintenance involved with natural grass. Forget about pulling weeds, fertilizing 4-5 times a year, aerating or dealing with insect infestations like grubs and cinch bugs common enemies of natural grass. Homeowners looking for less intensive ways of providing a green space are easy converts to the idea of an artificial grass lawn or golf green. The appearance is especially important, considering it’s often the first thing customers will see as they approach your business.
Artificial landscape grass & golf green’s main attribute requires zero water use and almost zero maintenance, which makes it the perfect candidate for sustainable building projects. More specifically, builders may earn credits toward LEED certification, the highest standard in green building and a symbol of sustainability, safety, and marketability. Incorporating the use of artificial grass, outdoor water efficiency alone can earn up to 4 LEED credits.
Zero Heavy/Lead Chemicals & No pesticides.
Design Turf American-made artificial landscape grass, unlike natural grass, doesn’t require chemical assist, which negates groundwater contamination concerns. Parents and pet owners alike can rest assured that loved ones can romp or play without exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. Also dispensing of these potently toxic fertilizers and weed control, our lakes and waterways might recover from the increasing algae bloom created by runoff into the local sewer systems. Recent photographic & satellite imagery evidence show expanding algae blooms covering portions of our great lakes and waterways, putting immense pressure on fish habitat and natural aquatic life.
Installation is easy, and the results are immediate
When you seed grass or plant sod, it can take months to get the desired effect—and even then, the grass is vulnerable to setbacks. An artificial grass installation can take as little as a day depending on size, and the process resembles that of building a patio. First, professional installers remove just the organic material; a stone base is raked even to ensure quick drainage. Finally, a roll of artificial grass is rolled out just like a giant carpet cutting around trees and garden shapes fastening the entire perimeter to ensure a clean, even, and natural appearance.
Saving money over time
“If you’re paying someone to mow, water, and maintain your grass every week, that’s a big investment,” Keays says. “By installing artificial grass, you’re creating an area that no longer requires expensive maintenance.” In turn, that saves money by eliminating the need for water, four times a year fertilizers and weed control, grass seeds, repairs, aerating, gas, topsoil and the related personnel. Plus, because artificial grass turf is so resilient, you can expect a 30-year lifespan much more than natural grass. Typical payback for switching from a high to never-ending maintenance natural lawn to an artificial landscape grass is 5-7 years.
