Artificial Turf: Landscaping Services Denver Residents Can Rely On
By Bryn Abshire - July 13, 2015
Many people prefer the look and feel of “real” grass and each property owner must weigh the pros and cons of their choice of turf. Artificial turf or grass consists of filaments threaded into a backing that lets water through. Under the turf is a drainage layer which is usually compacted gravel and is then it is filled with a recycled material to weigh it down. If you want your yard looking its absolute best with minimal maintenance, artificial turf may be a great choice for your Denver yard. Here are a couple benefits of installing artificial grass:
- Environmental Impact: Did you know that when you mow your lawn with a gas powered mower, it puts 11 times more pollution in the air per hour than a car?
- In a dry climate like Colorado, it’s important to keep water usage to a minimum. With artificial turf, you save money on water while benefiting the environment.
- Low maintenance – A traditional lawn is a lot of work. With all the mowing, weeding, fertilizing and watering, you can spend more time maintaining a lawn than enjoying it.
Artificial turf can be placed basically anywhere – on roofs, dog runs, and even decorative borders between patio pavers. It’s also safe for pets and kids!
