Residential artificial grass is a great choice for those looking to create a beautiful new yard or give an existing yard a fresh look. Residential artificial grass isn't like natural grass and does not need watering, mowing or weeding. Rather, you need only clean up stains and rake the blades regularly to prevent matting. Leaves should be removed immediately to prevent them from becoming ground in and make the lawn difficult to maintain. Artificial grass for residential use can last from 15 to 20 years with proper care.
Artificial turf that is of high-quality can last for many years without breaking or wearing out. Artificial grass in residential areas is more durable than natural grass and is able to withstand heavy traffic. It also isn't affected by color or mud variations. It can be used where pets cannot wander, like on pool decks, rooftops, or road medians. This is because synthetic grass is durable enough to withstand the pressure of traffic including pets and children.
Before installing the artificial turf ensure that the area has enough infill depth. It is essential to choose the right level of infill to support the turf fibers and ensure that they stand tall. Check out the guidelines provided by the manufacturer for infill depth. In the event that you're not comfortable with DIY, you can call a professional for installation. The surface should be sloped at approximately 2% to encourage drainage. The base and the surface should be compacted to minimum 90%.
