Title: Artificial turf indulgence or a necessity

Garden-mark Landscape Solutions

Artificial turf indulgence or a necessity?
  • When you think of having a healthy lawn near your
    doorstep, you think of the cost of maintenance
    and the time that will take up for this. On top
    of this you have water and electricity bills to
    be paid for the same!
  • While having a green and uniformly mowed lawn may
    be an indulgence, it is a necessity in the
    present context to go for a better alternative
    that serves both purposes. With an artificial
    lawn you save a lot of resources, money and
    energy and your lawn looks green and fresh at the
    same time.

Artificial turf indulgence or a necessity?
  • Its amazing to know what technology can do for
    you. The idea of artificial grass came with
    AstroTurf developed by Monsanto. Since the 60s,
    a lot of development has taken place we have
    turfs that are as beautiful and real as natural
  • You not only save a whole lot of money
    with synthetic turfs but your guests will be
    amazed and fooled by the amount of maintenance
    that you can possibly do throughout the year.

Artificial turf and natural resources
  • Our environment is in a stage where it needs
    utmost protection from us humans.
  • Installing an artificial lawn will save your
    household gallons of water every year. Natural
    lawns need a lot of sprinkling and watering to
    look green and fresh. Mowing the surface to get a
    uniform height requires the use of electricity
    and not to talk about the manpower, money and
    energy that go in. Even though sunlight is free,
    these other resources like water and electricity
    demand to be conserved.
  • While we have to use pesticides, weedicides,
    germicides and a whole lot of other chemicals to
    foster better growth of grass, all this seeps
    into the water table and actually pollutes the
    ground water. Diseases can spread this way and
    this is similar to farming with excessive use of
    fertilizers and that kills a whole lot of animals
    and sometimes even infects humans.

Synthetic lawns in the swimming pool
  • Swimming pool landscaping is a tad more difficult
    job than landscaping your backyard.
  • If you want to easily maintain your poolside
    garden, you can rightly use natural rocks and
    stones that can be arranged in different grades
    of color, uniquely contoured borders, etc. to
    spice up the area. However when it comes to
    planting around the swimming pool, it
    inadvertently will cause a lot of dirt and
    garbage into the swimming pool, o never know if a
    tree root is capable of cracking your swimming
    pool walls or you maybe swimming with a snake!
    An artificial lawn could be a good alternative
    that eliminates all the risk and trouble and
    guarantees a fuss free poolside.
  • In case you dont have enough space in your
    backyard and wish to have a rooftop pool,
    the synthetic lawns will rightly transform the
    concrete structure into something more natural.

Installing Synthetic Lawns professionally
  • A well maintained patch of green not just adds
    charm to the whole environment but will be the
    most comfortable place to have your sporting
    activities like hockey, football and anything
    that will involve running and beating the ground!
    However, the downside is that a natural surface
    is very difficult to maintain as it requires a
    lot of investment and labor. This is probably the
    reason that gave rise to the invention
    of synthetic lawns and since then the whole
    concept of natural green in playgrounds has
    completely changed.
  • There are many companies around that take up lawn
    installation projects and come up with wonderful
    results. What you see looks like actual grass and
    this surface is highly comfortable and risk free
    walking upon. The fiber imitates the natural
    softness of grass and one would not be able to
    quickly realize that its not natural soil he/she
    is walking upon. With gradual research and
    development, we now have several varieties of
    products and suited to every budget and taste.
    Compare deals online and discuss with friends,
    relatives and experts what material would rightly
    suit your needs. The desired area for
    installation is first cleaned up and thinly
    trimmed to ensure a stable base. The artificial
    lawn could be easily rolled up to fit the size of
    the area. All the blades need to be in the same
    direction to give a natural look to the
    surface. Artificial lawn can add up a lot of
    value to your house and it can rightly be used
    for dog runs, games turf, garden lawns, safety
    flooring in the kids room, school playfield and a
    lot others.

Installing Synthetic Lawns professionally
  • Artificial installations generally come with
    good drainage systems. If you are installing
    the synthetic lawn over the garden area, all the
    fluid that is deposited is gradually passed on to
    the water table below the soil. The material is
    highly porous. On concrete surfaces, customized
    drainage systems could be installed which helps
    in getting rid of the water spills
    instantaneously. It is always recommended to ask
    for photos of the installation work done by a
    company before employing them on the project. A
    good turf will change your whole lifestyle.
