Artificial grass for residential use is an excellent option if you are looking to create a beautiful new yard or give your existing yard a makeover. Residential artificial grass isn't like natural grass and doesn't require watering, mowing or weeding. Instead, you'll have to deal with staining and rake the blades frequently to avoid matting. Leaves should be raked off right away so they don't become ground in and make the lawn harder to maintain. Proper care can extend the lifespan of the artificial grass in residential areas by between 15 and 20 years.
High-quality residential artificial turf can last for years without tearing or getting worn out. In contrast to natural grass, residential artificial grass can be able to withstand heavy traffic and is unaffected by color or mud changes. It can be used in areas where pets aren't allowed to wander, like on decks for pools, rooftops or on road medians. This is because synthetic grass is strong enough to stand up to traffic including pets and children.
Before putting in the artificial grass ensure that the area has sufficient infill depth. It is crucial to select the appropriate level of infill to support turf fibers and to keep them standing tall. You can refer to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer for infill depth. In the event that you aren't comfortable with DIY, you could contact a professional to install. The area should have a slope of approximately 2% to encourage drainage. The base and surface should be compacted to minimum 90%.
