SYNTHETIC TURF ACHIEVING YOUR DESIRED RESULTS
You may have noticed new synthetic lawns in the neighborhood and are open to the idea. Some look natural and are mistakable for real lawn. Others have an unnatural color, visible seams, a shiny appearance and are laying down matted / flat. Here is a quick read on looking closer into synthetic lawn / turf.
Q: Why does synthetic lawn cost so much more than a new lawn?
A: The installation of a synthetic lawn initially costs more than real grass. However, when you calculate the ongoing costs of water maintenance, costly fertilizers and time, it takes only a few years for the cost of a real lawn to surpass the cost of a synthetic lawn.
Q: What are the top 3 reasons people want synthetic lawn over real lawn?
A: Parents want a good looking, dry and usable space for their kids to play. Pet owners want a clean /mud free area for pets to play. Homeowners realize the importance of conserving water. Removing natural lawn can save hundreds to thousands of gallons of water annually.
Q: Can turf be installed directly on top of dirt?”
A: Not recommended. Over time the dirt will work up through the backing. Turf fibers surrounded by dirt can be the host of hearty weeds and a muddy mess. Compacted base rock is the most commonly installed base material.
Q: What makes for a bad looking synthetic lawn?
A: Poor quality turf, lack of material, inexperienced installers, not using proper tools.
Q: What makes for a great synthetic lawn?
A: Looks indigenous. Use of quality materials, shape of the lawn, proper infill level and the installers’ workmanship.
