The Benefits of Synthetic Turf


Synthetic turf is an easy, efficient way for you to reduce the time and amount of care your yard requires.

Between water-usage restrictions and implementing general maintenance techniques, up-keeping a yard can be very difficult.

Why Synthetic Turf?

Synthetic turf requires minimal care after the initial installation. In addition, turf is a heartier, more resistant substance than regular grass, making it possible to utilize your yard space more often.

Depending on your home or organization’s needs, you can pick a turf style that works best for you. For example, areas that suffer from severe climate change may want a slightly different style of turf than a highly trafficked sports field.

The Structural Benefits of Synthetic Turf

Since turf is much more resilient than regular grass blades, home and business owners no longer have to worry about the physical appearance of their yard. One of the most convenient benefits of turf is its resiliency to overuse.

Previously, hotels, schools, and public transportation areas that constantly use their grassy areas had to spend exorbitant amounts of money on maintaining the grass. With synthetic turf, these organizations no longer need to limit their lawn use.

Using the Land

Synthetic turf opens the doors to many different opportunities. For example, homes, golf courses, businesses, parks, tourist attractions, and many other organizations can use turf in their landscaping where asphalt or rock paths may have been before. This will significantly increase the beauty of the area and better handle rain and other natural element wear and tear, which can also reduce the amount of money spent on general maintenance.

In addition, organizations can use turf on rooftops and high rises that were once deemed unusable and create beautiful, green spaces.

Synthetic Turf’s Environmental Benefits

There are many different reasons why turf installation can help the environment, but one of the most prominent reasons is water conservation. Sport stadiums, golf courses, and grass fields can use between 500,000 and one million gallons of water each year. Turf lawns require far less water, and in 2010 alone nearly 8 billion gallons of water were conserved in turf areas. That’s enough water to compensate for 55,000 American families’ water usage!

Besides water conservation, turf does not require harmful pesticides and fertilizers, and by lowering the amount of harmful chemicals on plants, cities and other organizations are able to significantly reduce the amount of polluted runoff that dumps into rivers and streams.
