Those living in the Southwest understand the challenges of keeping a beautiful yard, but one sure-fire product that can eliminate many of those challenges is artificial turf.

Artificial turf is the answer to the following problems faced by homeowners:
· Grass dying in the summer heat
· High water bills
· Allergies
· A lot of money spent on yard maintenance
· Frustrations with issues like bare spots and holes
· Fleas, ticks, and dirt carried into the house by pets

Today’s Turf

The artificial turf of today is much different from what many current homeowners grew up with watching professional football on television. Today’s artificial turf looks and feels more like the real thing. It has individually produced grass blades, a solid backing and a choice of natural or near-natural infills that keep it looking good at your Texas home for at least a decade. Kids and pets really won’t know the difference. Neither will anyone else.

With artificial turf, your lawn will stay green and fresh looking all year even under 100-degree plus heat or drastic cold winters that are common in Texas and, really, throughout the Southwest into areas like Phoenix. Most come with a warranty, so you know you are covered.

Less Water, Work, Allergies

Homeowners with artificial turf do not need to water their lawns, so installing it helps with water conservation in areas where decreased water use is a local mandate. Less water means less paid out on water bills also.

Something many people don’t think about when looking at their lawn is allergies. Kids, pets, and adults are all vulnerable to grass allergies. An artificial lawn remedies that because there is no more grass pollen. That also reduces money spent on allergy medicines during the warm, growing season.

The primary feature about artificial grass drawing most Texas homeowners to look at the product is the idea they will be spending less time, and money, maintaining their yard. Artificial grass obviously doesn’t grow, so there is no need for a mower or a weed-eater. There will be no more bare spots because artificial grass doesn’t die and pets can’t dig.
There is also no need for weed killer and insecticides. Artificial grass virtually eliminates bugs in the yard because it prevents them from reaching feeding areas in the dirt. Bugs move on and you can enjoy the outdoors.

The lower maintenance could save you thousands over the course of ten years. The overall cost of installing artificial grass is typically less than the maintenance of natural grass in the first two years of seed sowing or sod planting.

More Family Life

The other benefit of installing artificial turf at your Texas home is the overall improved quality of life for your kids, your pets and yourself. With artificial grass, your kids and pets will not get as dirty so there is less laundry and dog bathing to do. You will no longer have to clean up muddy floors from everyone playing outside. With reduced bugs, your pet will not have the flea and tick problems they may have now. So, you can reduce or eliminate dangerous anti-insect medications you are currently giving your pet.

The list of benefits of installing artificial grass is lengthy, but the results are less water and maintenance cost, fewer allergies, more family time, and a gorgeous yard where your family can enjoy that time.
