Whether you want to create a new, beautiful yard, or just want to give your current yard a new look Residential artificial grass can be a great option. Residential artificial grass is not like natural grass and does not require watering, mowing or weeding. To avoid matting, you only need to clean up stains and rake regularly. Leaves should be removed immediately so they don't become ground into the lawn, making it more difficult to maintain. Artificial grass in residential areas can last between 15 and 20 years if properly maintained.
High-quality residential artificial grass can last for years without tearing or wearing out. In contrast to natural grass, artificial grass is able to endure high traffic and is not affected by color changes or mud. It can be used where pets cannot be allowed to roam, like on decks for pools, rooftops or roadsides. This is because synthetic grass is strong enough to stand up to traffic including pets and children.
Before installing the artificial turf, make sure that the area has enough infill depth. The infill should be enough to support the turf fibers, while keeping them tall. The manufacturer provides guidelines for infill depth. If you're not comfortable with DIY, you could seek out a professional for installation. The surface should be sloped at approximately 2% to facilitate drainage. The surface and base should be compacted to a minimum of 90%
