Artificial grass in residential areas is an excellent option for those looking to create a beautiful new yard or give your existing yard a new look. Unlike natural grass, residential artificial grass does not require watering, mowing, or weeding. To avoid matting, you just need to take care of staining and rake frequently. To avoid leaves being swept away and making the lawn difficult to maintain, it's important to remove them immediately. Residential artificial grass can last fifteen to twenty years with proper care.
Artificial grass that is of high-quality will last for years without tearing or wearing out. Unlike natural grass, artificial grass can withstand heavy traffic and is unaffected by color changes or mud. It can be used when pets are not allowed to wander, like on rooftops, pool decks or on road medians. This is because synthetic grass is sturdy enough to stand up to traffic as well as pets and children.
Before installing the artificial grass, make sure that the area is sufficiently infill depth. The infill should be sufficient to provide support to the turf fibers and keep them tall. The manufacturer provides guidelines for infill depth. If you're not confident with DIY, you can always hire a professional to install the infill. To encourage drainage, the area should have a slope of about 2%. The surface and base should be compacted to a minimum of 90%
