Why you should consider synthetic grass also referred to as Astro Turf?

15th October 2012

Artificial grass is an alternative considered by many people across the world to traditional growing grass, mainly due to its promise of water-free maintenance. The raw synthetic turf materials used are basically recycled plastics that are processed and treated to conform to the requirements needed from natural grass. Artificial grass are also made UV and fire-resistant to improve the quality.

Uses of Astro Turf

The uses of artificial grass ranges between mere aesthetics value and functionality desired. Some residents would like to have manicured lawns to improve the value of their property. In addition, synthetic turf also prevents the soil from being washed away during rainy seasons.

In the past, all of these use natural growing grass. Maintenance is sustained regularly through watering, fertilizer application and constant mowing. Some have even extensive water sprinkler setup in place in the attempts to modernize the watering method.

All these steps are necessary to prevent overgrowth or undergrowth of grasses. Both cases are unsightly and may drive away people because it shows neglect on the surroundings.

Another problem usually encountered in grass or turf maintenance is the naturally occurring brown patches of land wherein the grass has grown very thin due to heavy foot traffic or shade.

Once installed in the desired area, one does not need to perform all the laborious tasks mentioned above just so to maintain the desired appearance of the turf.
