Synthetic Turf Might Be the Answer
If keeping your lawn lush and green is feeling absurd, consider artificial turf.
Who Needs Artificial Turf?
It’s hard to keep a beautiful lawn in Southern California’s climate. With water shortages and restrictions, lawns suffer. But there’s an alternative to grass that might work better for you—artificial turf.
Benefits of an Artificial Lawn
How much time do you spend maintaining your lawn? How much money do you spend as well? Here are a few benefits of artificial turf that might change your mind.
- Low Maintenance & Attractive. One of the biggest benefits is no more mowing. You’ll have almost zero upkeep of an artificial turf since it doesn’t grow. And if you hired a gardener to maintain your lawn, that’s no longer an expense. No more stepping out on dead, brown grass. Artificial turf is lush and green all year long. Regardless of the climate or how dry it’s been lately, artificial sod still looks great. And artificial turf has come a long way from the faux grass of the past.
- Pet-friendly. Are you tired of the embarrassing yellow patches and bare spots in your lawn from your pet relieving themselves? You won’t have that anymore with artificial turf. You also won’t have the muddy paw prints tracked in from the yard which is you have multiple pets, can make a huge difference.
- Kid-friendly. No more grass stains on clothing, and no more muddy feet. Other kid-friendly options such as sand, which can be messy, or wood chips, which can contain hazardous chemicals are not as forgiving. And no more kids damaging your lawn while they’re just trying to have fun.
Is Sod or Ground Cover Better?
Is your house on a hill? Ground cover would be better for hilly surfaces. And low-lying plants make yard work easier while adding beauty to your landscape. Even if your home is not on a hill, ground cover helps you reduce your time spent on yard work while still presenting an attractive yard for curb appeal.
Another consideration is drought-resistant ground cover or grass. You want to reduce water used to stay in compliance with local water restrictions, but you also want to reduce your water bills while maintaining a healthy, attractive lawn. In a dry climate like Los Angeles, you want a sod or grown cover that works well with little water and is suitable for poor soil conditions.
