The temperatures are slowly starting to rise, and the days are getting longer. Before too long, we’ll all be enjoying our backyards again! Before you can host barbecues, social gatherings, and evenings under the stars, you might need to get your yard in order.

If you’re ready to transform yours while also saving money, cutting back on maintenance, and helping the environment, then turf might be the ideal option.

Today, we’re sharing some of the top reasons why it’s smart to consider turf for backyard use and how our team can help you get started!

Easy to Maintain

You want to spend the warm-weather months enjoying your backyard, not tending to it every week. When you install artificial turf, your stress levels instantly lower. Instead of cutting it around the clock and cringing it every time a new patch of weeds pops up, all you have to do is clean it!

While your lawn doesn’t have to be watered too often, it can occasionally benefit from a solid hose-down. Beyond that, you’ll only need to worry about spot-cleaning up spills and picking up after your pets. In addition to time, this can save you significant money on lawncare products and equipment!

Less Water Use

Are you tired of seeing your water bill spike when it’s time to water your lawn? It’s a necessary step if you want to keep yours green during those scorching California summers, but few of us stop to think about how wasteful it could be for the environment.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that residential outdoor water use accounts for almost eight billion gallons of water per day, most of which goes toward landscape irrigation! In fact, we use more water outdoors during the hottest months of the year than showering and washing clothes — combined!

A turf lawn substantially reduces water consumption, helping you conserve costs and reduce waste. This is one eco-friendly decision that has a significant impact.

Green All Year

When winter rolls around, most homeowners accept that their grass will turn brown and die. Then, they spend all season staring out the window at the barren landscape.

One of the best perks of installing turf is enjoying a lush, green yard all year! You’ll be the envy of the neighborhood when yours still looks as beautiful in January as it did in June. Turf grass has a natural curb appeal that everyone can’t help but notice.

One of the reasons why it looks so good? It’s uniform and consistent! If you’ve ever stepped foot on a natural lawn, you know that most grass rarely looks the same.

Between the random brown patches, uneven mounds of dirt, and muddy patches after a storm, trying to give yours a cohesive look can feel next to impossible. That’s not an issue with turf!

No Pesticides

If you have pets or small children, you might worry about them running around in a yard sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or other chemicals. Yet, despite how dangerous they might be, some of those solutions are necessary to maintain appearances and keep bugs out of a conventional lawn.

Natural soil attracts weeds and insects, including tiny grubs that attract larger rodents like squirrels and voles. This doesn’t occur with artificial turf because it doesn’t provide the same foundation. Weeds, pests, and critters are all dissuaded from entering this space, which is great news for you!

Another bonus of skipping the real dirt and blades of grass? If you suffer from seasonal grass pollen allergies, you should notice fewer symptoms when yours usually flare up! Turf is allergen-free, much to the delight of sneezers everywhere.

Strong and Sturdy

If we’re honest, most of us are hard on our lawns. We run over them, play pickup baseball games, and walk our four-legged pals everywhere. While there are several landscaping options to consider, artificial turf is one of the sturdiest and most durable, especially regarding foot traffic.

A turn lawn will maintain its shape and appearance with minimal upkeep. This makes it the ideal addition for families with pets and children! Your lawn isn’t delicate or sensitive, so you can play on it without worry.
