A lawn is a central landscaping component for millions of residential and commercial properties in America. It’s easy to see the appeal of a lawn – it offers a beautiful shade of green and plenty of open space for kids and pets to play. On the downside, however, lawn maintenance can be significant, and keeping the grass wet enough to stay green all year long can be costly.
This is where artificial grass enters the discussion. With artificial grass, you still get to enjoy that open green space, but the maintenance requirements are all but eliminated. Also, the space will stay green throughout the year, even without applying a drop of water. Artificial grass surely isn’t for everyone, but modern products offer durability and a realistic appearance, so they should be carefully considered in the right situation.

There are many uses for artificial grass as an alternative to natural turf. Some of those cases include the following –
If some of these points are appealing but you are still hesitant to make the leap to artificial grass, it might be worth viewing some samples so you can see the quality of these products. They have come a long way in recent years, and you may be pleasantly surprised by how they look and feel.
The installation of artificial grass is a relatively straightforward process, but there is more to it than just rolling out the grass and tacking it down. Specifically, extensive work will need to be done to the base under the new artificial grass. The ground in this area needs to be properly compacted and graded before the installation of the turf. Once the base is ready, the turf can be rolled out and secured to the ground using stakes or staples. Special attention will need to be paid to the seams to ensure they are clean and nearly impossible to spot.
Here at TLC we can help you clear your ground, a service called grading and excavation, so you can install your new artificial grass.
Even for someone who likes to do a lot of their own landscaping and home improvement work, installing an artificial lawn is a big challenge. This is one job you may want to consider turning over to the professionals to make sure it is done right and that the installation will hold up for years to come.
There is very little you will need to do to care for your artificial grass. In fact, you’ll likely go long stretches of time without doing anything at all. When the artificial lawn does start to look a little dirty, you may need to do nothing more than clean it off with a broom. This will move away and debris and bring back up and blades that have been matted down by regular use. If sweeping the space doesn’t get it quite as clean as you would like, a quick wash down with some water should do the trick. This is particularly useful toward the end of the summer when it may not have rained much for weeks or months.
If you have energetic dogs that love to run around playing chase and fetch, they will quickly come to think of your artificial lawn as their favorite spot on the property. And, thanks to the durable nature of this product, you won’t need to worry about them tearing up the grass or creating dead spots when they go to the bathroom. As yet another benefit, when the dogs are done playing and are ready to come back inside, they won’t be covered in dirt and in need of a bath. You save time and the dogs have the time of their lives!
