Why Install Artificial Grass in Philadelphia, PA & New Jersey?
Artificial Greens and Lawns artificial grass replaces traditional sod in a variety of beneficial ways. We all would love for our grass to look its best year after year, but unfortunately that comes with hours of consistent maintenance, watering, and seeding depending on the time of the year. Traditional grass is not always friendly toward children and pets. It can be a source of pests such as fleas and ticks, allergens, grass stains, mud, and many other common issues. In this article, we will explore some of the unique features that synthetic grass lawns and putting greens have to offer.
Save Time and Money on Maintenance
The first reason why you should install artificial grass is because you can save time and money by eliminating the need for traditional lawn maintenance. Think of all of the money you spend on lawn equipment, repairs for that equipment, or on maintenance crews that come to your home or business on a regular basis. With our artificial grass, these factors become a thing of the past. With artificial turf, there is no need for watering to keep it looking healthy and alive.
Since it doesn’t grow, it will remain at its predetermined height and will never become unruly. In addition to these savings, you are doing your part to help the environment by installing artificial grass. Year after year you’ll conserve gallons of water, significantly reduce carbon emissions, and our products will help to eliminate the need for hazardous pesticides.
Enhanced Durability for Landscapes with Heavy Activity
Artificial grass is multi-functional and can be used for a number of applications other than residential lawns. Commercial property owners love upgrading to synthetic grass from real grass because of its reliability and durability. In areas where foot traffic is heavier than normal, artificial turf won’t tear from constant walking, running, or visiting pets.
Artificial grass can be used for many applications including:
- Artificial lawns for homes or commercial facilities
- Backyard putting greens
- Golf Tee Lines at golf practice facilities
- Playground turf
- Pet turf for dog runs and kennels
- Rooftops and patios
- Sports fields and more
PGA-Level Putting Greens at Your Convenience
In addition, golf professionals understand the importance of quality and performance on the golf course. Artificial grass is so realistic in comparison to the real thing, that even some of the most well-known names in golf prefer artificial turf for their golf greens. Golf greens from Artificial Greens and Lawns deliver the same characteristic and performance you would expect from a PGA course, at home, at the office, and even on your rooftop patio. These installations are perfect for all ages and skill levels and help to increase the value of your property and your putting skills.
Pet Grass Provides Cleaner and Safer Outdoor Spaces
It is safe to say that most pet owners aren’t crazy about muddy paws. Artificial grass removes the possibility of tracking mud after it rains. No more bringing in mud on the bottom of your shoes. Artificial turf does not require soil for it to be installed and because it does not need watering, you can avoid mud through every season. Pets can play, run, and enjoy their time outside in an environment that stays clean, free of fleas, ticks, and other pests, and is resilient enough to prevent holes no matter how hard they may try to dig. Additionally, you can wash your pet outside rather than in the tub. Water drains through our artificial turf up to 30-inches per hour and our artificial grass manages heat effectively for a cooler play area on hot days to prevent their paws from being burned.
