Looking to improve your property value? Landscaping with artificial turf provides the flexibility and consistency every property owner needs.
Today’s artificial turf includes “grass” blades that are infilled with a granular filler to resemble natural grass. Artificial turf has been popularly installed for sports settings, however, the drought tolerant alternative has become popular among residential properties over the past few years as homeowners and developers looked for ways to save money and water.
A little background about landscaping with artificial turf
In 1960, David Chaney lead a team of researchers who created the first notable artificial turf. The first arena to install turf was the Astrodome in Houston, Texas, in 1966. Soon after, synthetic turf began showing up in football, soccer and tennis stadiums.
Landscaping with artificial turf isn’t an expensive alternative
We provide recycled artificial turf at a fraction of the price, which makes it more accessible for homeowners interested in saving money. In addition to a reduced installation price, artificial turf saves homeowners money in the long run as well. Unlike natural grass, artificial turf doesn’t require water or maintenance, which means you can cut back on your utility bill and enjoy the weekends again. Installing an artificial lawn instead of natural grass offers advantages, like increased durability, less maintenance, and that beautiful crisp green color year-round. The biggest benefit most homeowners enjoy? Artificial turf grass doesn’t require the same amount of maintenance as natural grass, which means you don’t have to spend hours of your weekend watering, mowing, or fertilizing the lawn. It doesn’t need sunlight to maintain its health, so you don’t have to worry about shade in the backyard either.
What most people don’t know is that there are companies whose sole purpose is recycling used synthetic turf. The used turf is carefully removed and is typically rolled up into 15′ by 45′ sizes. The turf can then be reused for many different purposes, such as landscaping for businesses and home owners. It can also be used for batting cages, paintball parks and indoor and outdoor sports facilities. The use of recycled turf is also up to 80 percent less expensive than new turf.
Maintaining grass playing surfaces inside covered stadiums is nearly impossible and extremely expensive, but thanks to the invention of synthetic turf, indoor stadiums as well as outdoor stadiums can benefit from using synthetic grass instead of natural grass.
