Artificial turf or grass is a plastic mat or carpet covered with synthetic fibers that have been manufactured to recreate the look and feel of natural grass. Originally used in sports arenas, artificial turf is now being used on residential lawns and commercial applications as well.
You’ve probably noticed that many LA area homeowners are opting to have their lawns covered by artificial turf rather than real grass. Having a yard of artificial turf can provide several benefits over a yard of real grass, especially when it comes to maintenance:
- Looks beautiful year-round
- No mowing, edging or trimming
- No weeds, insects, or brown spots
- No fertilizers or pesticides needed
- No watering
Homeowners with yards of artificial lawns save thousands a year in yard maintenance and water costs.
Artificial Turf – What to Look For
If you’re considering artificial turf for your yard, it’s important to shop around. There are many different types of artificial grass on the market.
Some things to look for when shopping for artificial turf for your yard include:
- A realistic-looking appearance rather than a plastic look.
- The soft texture of real grass.
- Good quality holed latex that provides effective drainage.
- A high blade density so that it looks natural and lush.
The quality of artificial turf has improved greatly from the unnatural feel and look of decades past. Today. artificial turfs are made out of a wide variety of high-quality materials. Polyethylene is one of the best quality materials; it offers the most natural texture and look compared to natural grass and is more durable and heat resistant than turfs made of nylon or polypropylene.
