Artificial grass in residential areas is a great option when you want to create a beautiful new yard or give your current yard a fresh look. Unlike natural grass, residential artificial grass doesn't require watering, mowing or weeding. Instead, you'll have to clean up stains and rake the blades regularly to prevent matting. Leaves must also be raked off right away so they don't become ground in and make the lawn difficult to maintain. Residential artificial grass can last fifteen to twenty years if it is maintained properly.
High-quality artificial turf for residential use will last for a long time without tearing or wear out. As opposed to natural grass, residential artificial grass is able to withstand high traffic and is not affected by color or mud changes. It is also able to be used in places that pets aren't permitted to roam like rooftops, pool decks, and roadsides. This is because synthetic grass is durable enough to withstand the pressure of traffic as well as pets and children.
Before installing the artificial turf, make sure that the area has sufficient infill depth. It is important to choose the right amount of infill that will support the turf fibers and ensure that they stand tall. You can refer to the guidelines of the manufacturer on infill depth. In the event that you aren't comfortable with DIY, you can always contact a professional to install. To facilitate drainage, the area must have a slope of approximately 22%. The base and surface should be compacted to a minimum of 90 percent.
