Why Artificial Grass
Many customers who ask for artificial lawn are pet owners, whose natural lawn that looks worn out and patches made by pet. Installing synthetic lawns transforms your offices and houses into something beautiful for both you and your pets and prevents your house from muddy paw prints. Artificial lawns are stronger compared to natural lawns, which is difficult to dig for dogs, and no damages occurs even if pets likes to kick on the grass, roll and run. Many companies provide dog friendly artificial grass for this reason as majority of customers are pet owners. Usually, artificial grass have longer durability and is removed only if there is a major damage (less likely to happen) and this is discarded as nylon yarn. These are generally recycled but are not reused as artificial lawn and at the installation site, earth is cleared and transported to landfill and later discarded. The process of manufacturing artificial grass includes chemicals and raw materials, and no pesticides and fertilizers are required for maintenance later, which is opposite in natural grass. Artificial lawn installation is a great way to treat mole infestation, which not only restrain moles, but also repairs the damages they have made, where reseeding is impossible with tunnels and mole holes.
The Future of Artificial Grass
Both engineering systems for artificial and natural turf are improving with time. Recent advancements in artificial lawns serves environmental as well as economical needs, while watering practices are improving based on the surfaces where it is installed. Another recent improvements are in fillings with natural grass, rubber, soil and sand, where a grass seed is planted in the soil and grown later, and is grown to a height above to that of artificial grass. This results in the combination of both natural and artificial grass that feels, looks and comforts resembling the biological grass with resistance and resilience to artificial grass, but this requires both systems maintenance and is not applicable for indoor installations. Artificial lawns are made up of plastics, so one must be careful when dealing with heat as it might melt due to extreme heat, but that does not mean, you should use your garden for barbecue. You can make barbecue if you have a patio, rather than directly using it on the grass.
