Summer Maintenance for Artificial Turf

Everyone looks forward to the warm summer months, especially those that live in colder climates during the winter. The summer means warmer weather, sunshine, family vacations, family outings, pool openings, beaches and finally being back outside to enjoy it all. It means beautiful colors as the flowers begin to bloom and full leaves on the trees. However, with all that positivity comes a bit of negativity as you also have to address taking proper care of your real grass lawn again. 

Real grass lawns require a lot of time and maintenance to keep them looking good. Typically this means installing a sprinkler or irrigation system to provide water. In the hotter months, mother nature doesn’t always provide the essential water your lawn needs, especially for those that live in a dry climate. With sprinkler systems, you have the constant worry that the sprinkler heads could break or the piping in the underground irrigation system could break. Sprinkler heads and pipes are also prone to clogging also which prevents them from operating correctly. These are often costly and time-consuming repairs. 

Not only that, but if you are away on a family vacation, the last thing you need to worry about is whether or not the timers on your sprinkler system are working and the lawn is getting the water it needs when it needs it. A lawn that dries out is not a pretty green surface. The summer sun can scorch the surface of your grass leaving behind dry, dead and brown spots. It can even kill the grass entirely. 

Summer months also mean mowing, cutting, weeding, trimming and raking lawn clippings if your mower doesn’t collect them for you. You have to perform all of this maintenance in order to keep the lawn looking green and fresh. Also, this proper maintenance is essential to stimulate new growth. Sometimes in the summer months you even have to invest the time and money to re-fertilize, re-seed and aerate the lawn to keep it looking good. Harmful chemicals are often necessary in summer months to keep away insects and other pests as well. These chemicals have the potential to be extremely harmful to your family. 

Wouldn’t you rather be spending all this time with your family instead of investing it in your lawn? If the answer is yes, then you should consider synthetic grass. Artificial grass requires none of the same care that real grass does. You do not have to mow it, cut it, weed it or water it. This means not having to worry about the upkeep on a sprinkler system and whether or not your lawn is being properly cared for while you are away. Artificial turf is not effected by the sun, which means no unsightly dead spots. Synthetic grass also doesn’t need treatments with any harmful chemicals, which means reducing the health risks to your family. The only maintenance required for artificial turf in the summer is the occasional removal of debris with a blower and the occasional spray off with a hose, leaving you more time to spend with the family.

Get ahead of spring with an artificial turf lawn

Spring is approaching and that means a lot of things are happening. One of those things is something that we all dread. Yard work. Spring means that flowers are growing and along with the flowers there are also weeds and grass. No one wants to do yard work, lawn care is one of the most time consuming chores that you have in the spring and summer. And in the spring and summer you don’t have the time to spare to make sure that your yard looks nice and aesthetically pleasing.

So why not just get rid of the yard work forever and never look back? How can you do that though? If you throw out all of your lawn maintenance gear then your yard will become overrun and you won’t have anything to tackle it with. Unless you installed artificial turf.

Artificial turf is something that requires little to no yard work from you, meaning that all of your precious time in the spring and summer can be spent doing something that you would actually like to be doing. You don’t have to stand out in the heat anymore to mow the lawn and you don’t have to worry about spending so much money on weed killers either.

Synthetic grass is a carpet material that you place over the grass that you currently have and it will level everything out to be a flat lawn space for you and your family. It is completely safe and the only work you have to put into it is making sure the infill is full of water so that the grass stays soft and durable.

No more dirt and mess, no more hot days in the sun doing yard work, and no more spending money on something that you never get to see unless you are out there working on it. Contact Biltright.com to get a consultation and learn how you can install some synthetic turf to your yard.

What’s New in Artificial Turf? Resolving Your Health Concerns

Artificial turf has existed since the early 1960’s. Many famous sports arenas and baseball fields utilize the synthetic grass in order to keep a clean, low maintenance field that is always easy to prepare on game day. Utilizing artificial turf means being more energy efficient, and environmentally friendly.

Some states that have experienced droughts in the recent past have found that waterless grass is a great way to save one of the most essential resources. It also makes for a great energy saver for the homeowner or business owner in this busy day and age. Taking care of a lawn can require a lot of time and money. Most people just don’t have time for the upkeep.

Concerns, spiked from the media, have some people worried about health dangers of a synthetic lawn. There is thought to be link between some of the material used for the infill (the product that is placed between the fibers of the artificial turf) and some cancers. Some parents are also concerned of a link between breathing problems and the synthetic infill.

Crumb rubber, produced from recycled automotive and truck scrap tires, was the main cause for concern. Though studies are ongoing, and may take years to complete, there is no definitive study linking health risks with the turf. We however, do take these customer concerns very seriously and have started to use other organic material, besides the crumb rubber, for our turf infill.

Some new infill alternative options include; coconut fibers, silica sand, or cork. There are many other alternatives available that we are also pleased to offer such as Recycled Artificial Grass. We aren’t just a turf company, we also help save the environment by recycling used turf that is pulled from fields around the country.

We want to reassure our clients that our products are safe, friendly and low maintenance! Turf is a great choice not only commercial properties, but also small land owners. With our competitive prices, it is very affordable.

We have been in the turf making business since our founding in 1998. We are one of the biggest turf companies worldwide. We can also boast of high quality products. All of our turfs are water permeable, meaning that water will drain through the turf as opposed to sitting on the turf and creating a film of bacteria or fungal spores.

On top of being water permeable, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly, our products are made from 100% recyclable materials. We hope that you chose us for all of your turf needs!
