Artificial grass for residential use is a great option if you are looking to create a beautiful new yard or give an existing yard a new look. Unlike natural grass, residential artificial grass doesn't require watering, mowing, or weeding. To prevent matting, all you need to do is to clean up stains and rake regularly. Leaves must also be raked off right away to prevent them from becoming ground in and make the lawn more difficult to maintain. Artificial grass in residential areas can last fifteen to twenty years if properly maintained.
Artificial turf that is of high-quality can last for years without breaking or wear out. Unlike natural grass, residential artificial grass is able to withstand heavy traffic and is unaffected by color changes or mud. It is also able to be used in areas where pets aren't allowed to roam, such as rooftops, decks for pools, and road medians. This is because synthetic grass is strong enough to withstand traffic including pets and children.
Before putting in the artificial grass ensure that the area has enough infill depth. The infill should be enough to support the turf fibers and keep them tall. The manufacturer has guidelines on infill depth. If you're not comfortable with DIY, you can employ an expert to install the infill. To encourage drainage, the area must have a slope of around 2percent. The surface and base should be compacted at least 90%.
