The Benefits of Synthetic Turf

Synthetic turf has become much more popular for use in both residential and industrial applications. Homeowners are using synthetic turf to create the outdoor living space of their dreams. This turf is being used for landscaping projects, schools and for sports surfaces. Sales for this product have been increasing year over year since it was first released. Synthetic turf also goes by several other names such as imitation grass or artificial grass. 

Regardless of where it is used, synthetic turf is likely to improve the appearance of any living area. One of the benefits of using artificial grass is the cost savings. You do not have to spend money on treating, watering or mowing this type of grass, so you can save a lot of money over time. Many people choose to water their artificial grass anyway, which leads to the next benefit. Unlike regular grass, artificial turf will dry much more quickly. 


Fake grass will look great throughout the entire year with little to no maintenance. This is simply not the case when you are dealing with regular grass. Once you have installed the artificial turf, maintenance is virtually nonexistent from that point on. Unlike regular grass, homeowners never have to worry about bald patches, dry areas or muddy patches. It will feel great to be able to walk out into a yard filled with artificial grass without having to worry about accidently stepping on a muddy patch. Another very important benefit provided by artificial turf is the everlasting color. 

When you have a yard or living area filled with regular grass, you are stuck having to deal with maintaining it. Over time, the color of regular grass can begin to brown and become discolored. When you own fake grass, it will never dull in color, which leaves your living space looking pristine at all times. Even through a prolonged period of direct, intense sunlight, artificial grass will not discolor. Pet owners will be surprised to learn that artificial turf is pet-friendly. 


If a pet decides to relieve themselves on the fake grass, some detergent and warm water will provide an easy clean. Businesses will not have to spend a lot of time cleaning the turf if a wandering pet owner lets their pet go to the bathroom on the turf. The endless customization options are what make artificial turf excellent for homeowners and businesses. There is a certain variety and style of artificial grass for any living space that a home or business owner has in mind. 

The color, texture and size of this synthetic turf can be completely customized for virtually any purpose. What people love most about artificial turf is the fact that it can save a lot of money, effort and time over a short and long period of time. Anyone who is not currently utilizing imitation grass is missing out on a wide range of benefits that are simply not obtainable through the use of regular grass.

Sanitizing synthetic turf is important if defecated upon regularly. Use products with enzymes that are safe for carpets and other fabrics. You can get prepared solutions such as Natures' Miracle or Kids & Pets at most larger chain markets. Many carry enzyme products that are concentrated powders that you can mix with water for pennies a gallon.

Very interesting read, great to see so many benefits of artificial turf listed here. The images you have used are great, the grass looks natural and brightly coloured. Also worth noting that pesticides and fertiliser are unnecessary when maintaining artificial grass, which is obviously a big plus! Great that you've pointed out the benefits of customisation which isn't possible with natural grass.

Thanks for the helpful post on the benefits of synthetic turf. I am considering getting some artificial grass in my backyard. I like that you don't have to spend so much on maintenance, and so much on water. I think it is worth having it in my yard. Thanks for the post!

I am on my neighborhood committee and we just voted to add commercial synthetic grass to all the neighborhood playgrounds. I was on board from the beginning because I know how good it looks. With nicer looking playgrounds, our neighborhood value with increase. Plus, the synthetic grass is soft and safe for the kids.

My spouse and I are looking to get turf for our home once it is constructed as we believe that it will be beneficial because it does not require much maintenance. We are thankful that you mentioned the fact that using turf will be far more cost-effective than real grass. We'll look into suppliers once our home is built!
