There is no question that many home and business owners have happily embraced artificial grass as a smart, eco-friendly alternative to thirsty natural grass. Yet, despite the popularity of synthetic turf, myths and misconceptions remain about this product. Whether you’re considering a switch to synthetic turf, or you’ve already made the move, avoiding the following mistakes not to make with artificial grass will help you make the most of your investment. The thought of having a perfect green lawn to enjoy throughout the year, with no maintenance, bald or brown patches for you to worry about, can now be a reality, thanks to the wonders of artificial grass.
1. Picking the wrong turf for the job
Assuming all synthetic turf is the same is a major mistake.Did you know that there are a number of different types of artificial grass you can choose from these days? The final decision on which one you buy will come down to factors such as your budget, the overall look that you are after and whether you plan to carry out some sports on the grass. Turf Pros Solution is made with the best quality colouring agents and UV stabilizers. As a result, UV radiation has no effect whatsoever on the colour of the grass. No matter how much sun, rain, hail, or snow your artificial grass lawn has to endure, it will remain attractive, our artificial grass doesn’t fade. We have tested our artificial grasses for colour-fastness and UV resistance under extreme circumstances. From the hot deserts of Arizona to the humid conditions of Florida, our artificial grass has proven its worth. Our artificial turf won’t fade or flatten. It is UV stabilised and will retain its colour and integrity season after season.
2. Assuming “it’s not for me, because I have a dog”
Wrong. Very wrong. Dogs give faux grass four paws up for both romping and snoozing. Heavenly Greens Pedigree turf is specially designed for dogs, and it’s installed with our MaxxFlow drainage system. You can say goodbye to dog-dug holes in your grass, dead spots, and muddy paw prints on your floors. Even the famous dog behavior expert Cesar Millan uses artificial grass at his training facilities. And our Heavenly Greens customers include several prominent humane societies and dog day care facilities as well as a pack of happy homeowners.
3. Going cheap
The old adage “you get what you pay for” was never truer than when applied to artificial grass. Not all products are equal quality. Heavenly Greens sells only superior products, because we know you want long-term value. We also use our own highly trained and experienced crews to do installations, to make sure your turf lives up to your expectations for many years to come. And we can help link you with financing options.
4. Neglecting upkeep
We like to say artificial grass is virtually maintenance-free. And that’s true. But just as you sweep your walkways and rake up fallen leaves from under your trees, there are a few simple things you can – and should – do to keep your faux grass in peak condition. For example, you can use a stiff-bristle broom to keep the grass fluffy in high-traffic areas. For removing those fallen leaves or other debris, however, we recommend using a leaf blower.
5. Not enjoying it
Finally, once you have got your new artificial grass laid, it is time to get out there and enjoy it. Whether you want to play with the kids there, eat your lunch on it or just enjoy the sensation of walking across it, this is something that can add enormous pleasure to your life. What you don’t want to do is get a fabulous artificial lawn and then just forget about it. You won’t regret making a few changes to your lifestyle that allow you to make the most out of this terrific addition to your outdoor space at home.
So don’t wait any longer; take the right decision and get the lawn of your dreams!
