GREEN AND HARDY
There are not many people who will frown upon having a beautiful yard that is covered in green grass. In fact, if you think about what your dream home looks like, there is a good chance that somewhere on the property is going to be green grass. However, once you start to think about the amount of maintenance and money that is going to need to go into keeping that grass green, your dream home may not be so dreamy anymore. That is exactly why using artificial grass has been increasing in popularity and fast.
What is Artificial Grass?
Artificial turf is one of the leading substitutes for regular grass. It is essential a surface that has been made up of synthetic fibers that were designed to resemble real grass. Mainly used in sports arenas, in recent years it has exploded in popularity and has become a very popular choice for both homeowners and businesses alike.
Artificial turf is normally green, but you can get it in a number of different colors depending upon what you are planning on using it for. So which type of artificial turf flooring is right for you?
Different Types of Artificial Grass
While you may think that all artificial turf flooring is the same, it is not. In fact, there are many different types available. You can get turf installed that resembles different types of grass, such as Kentucky Bluegrass, Tall Fescue, Centipedegrass, and many others as well.
On top of that, there are also different types of fibers that your synthetic flooring can be made of too. Some of the more popular types of turf include:
With nylon artificial turf flooring, you can expect that the synthetic grass blades are going to be much stiffer than any of the other types of turf. This means that the nylon is going to be able to hold its shape the best, even when there is a high amount of foot traffic. On top of that, it can also withstand higher temperatures than some of the other types of turf, making it one of the more expensive options available.
Being one of the most affordable turf flooring options, polypropylene is also the least resilient, heat-resistant, as well as least durable. However, it is one of the more popular options for those looking to add creative outdoor or indoor projects, as it is both flexible and lightweight.
Why Install Artificial Grass?
By now you should see the benefits of having artificial turf installed at your home or business. Between the lack of maintenance required and the year-round green grassy look, installing artificial turf is not only going to be aesthetically pleasing, but it will also supply a great space for year round activities. On top of that, it will never get muddy after a heavy rain (or any rain for that matter), and will also never become a breeding ground for mosquitos or other insects.
Artificial turf is suitable for just about any location, no matter what the weather or ground surface conditions may be. Being that turf is extremely durable, it is perfect to be installed anywhere there is space. For example:
- In a shopping center
- At a park or playground
- Your business location
- The front or backyard of your house
Precaution and Maintenance
Now that you have your artificial grass installed, it is time to maintain your investment. Luckily for you, artificial turf flooring does not actually require any type of watering or maintenance schedule. The only thing you may need to do is sweep off some leaves depending upon the season.
While turf is extremely low maintenance, there are still some precautions that you will need to take. The main one being that some types of turf will actually absorb heat from sunlight and other elements. If there is enough heat absorbed, it can lead to the turf becoming hot to the touch, and in some cases, the turf actually melting. If you do notice your turf starting to get hot, all you need to do is put some water on it to help it cool off.
