AZ Landscape Creations recently completed a Chandler artificial grass installation project. The homeowners had a pool installed and were looking for a low-maintenance, lush and beautiful option to complete their backyard landscaping project and highlight their travertine paver pool decking. For them, artificial turf was the perfect solution!
Why Artificial Grass?
Artificial grass can give you a beautiful lawn without any hassle. Just think, no watering, no mowing, no edging, no weeding, no fertilizing, no chemicals, no allergies, and no mud! Artificial grass is perfect for our desert environment. In fact, it is eco-friendly as it doesn’t require any watering, and it is great for those areas where natural sod cannot grow.
Artificial turf is more expensive than regular turf, but it is an asset and an investment that will increase the value of your property. In addition, unlike regular grass, synthetic grass has an 10 year manufacturer warranty. Artificial grass is always green and always beautiful.
Artificial grass is great for families with kids and pets. If fact, our homeowners had two kids and two dogs! Animal urine does not damage or stain synthetic turf and can drain right through it. Animal urine often leaves brown spots on traditional grass. With synthetic grass, you will no longer have to worry about muddy paw prints or muddy shoe prints being tracked inside your home, grass stained pants, or grass allergies!
What is Artificial Grass?
Artificial grass is a blend of polyethylene, polypropylene, polyureathane, and infill. To install, we first remove the existing sod or landscaping in place and excavate the area below grade. Then, we fill in the area with ABC (aggregate base) and compact to create a solid, level sub-surface. Next comes the grass. The artificial grass comes in rolls, just like carpet and is hand cut to fit the configurations of the area. Then, both the seams and grass are tightly secured. Finally, we finish the install with infill. We use a power broom to evenly distribute infill throughout the grass area. The infill helps hold down the turf and keeps the fibers upright. In addition, it also assists in helping to distribute any liquids.
Synthetic turf is relatively maintenance free and just requires occasional rinsing and grooming. How often, really depends on if your grass is subject to animals or heavy traffic. This can be done professionally with a power broom or with a stiff bristled broom or rake to prevent matting. As you can see, the installation process is very important and can really make a difference in the aesthetics and longevity of your artificial grass investment.
