Artificial Grass During the Fall Season

syntheticgrass Artificial Grass During the Fall Season

Artificial grass is beneficial in so many ways, including the fact that it is adaptable to any season, including fall. The fall season is the main transitional season between winter and summer. The changing of conditions and temperature is very apparent during fall. Fall imagery usually consists of rustic colors, leaves falling, and browning of trees and grass. However, the browning of the grass is now a thing of the past with artificial grass. No matter what weather conditions are, synthetic grass remains green and healthy looking, even when everything around it starts to wilt or turn brown.

 In cooler conditions, artificial grass does not freeze up or die off like regular grass. In such cold environments, regular grass typically needs more fertilizer in the fall and winter seasons due to the fact that microbial activity drops off as the soil temperatures increase. Thus, the soil is less aerated, making it harder for oxygen to penetrate the soil for added growth. Synthetic grass natural and life-like appearance makes it suitable for lawns that would otherwise start to brown or unpleasant in appearance. Aside from gathering falling leaves, much of the maintenance needed by regular grass in the fall is not needed by artificial turf. Gathering leaves and other debris helps to keep synthetic turf clean, maintained, and looking its best. With spring showers gone and colder, drier months ahead, the autumn season usually requires moderate lawn watering for regular lawns, while artificial turf does not need any lawn watering at all.

Should the occasional fall shower take place, modern artificial grass is equipped with vertical drainage systems that are highly perforated, allowing water to drain itself and permeate easily and effectively through the surface of the turf. Since artificial grass needs no fertilization or weeding, it becomes independent of heavy gardening effort or extra time needed for upkeep. With its naturally green tint and realistic texture, it makes it very hard for people to distinguish artificial grass from real grass. However, it is the benefits of artificial grass that set them apart, especially in the fall season. The minimal upkeep allows homeowners to stay warm inside, without having to battle the elements and cold conditions for energy consuming maintenance. Homeowners can rest assured that during the fall season, their lawn will not look dry, dead, or barren. Pets and children can still enjoy and play on a lush lawn even in the autumn season.

The transition between summer and winter in which most households are getting ready for the holidays can be hectic. Having a synthetic turf lawn can help to cut down on overall house maintenance, allowing you to focus on more important things. By saving on water and maintenance costs, households and families can save more during fall and save more funds for the upcoming holidays. Synthetic grass is ideal for the fall because of its properties that allow it to withstand weather condition fluctuations. While certain crops harvest and trees and grass turn brown, your lawn can remain as green and healthy as the springtime, while keeping maintenance to a minimum.

Artificial Grass in Cold Weather Conditions

syntheticgrass Artificial Grass in Cold Weather Conditions
There has never been a more important time in history for environmental concern! The scale of damage to our environment from human-generated activities is at an all time high - So high, in fact, that it could be too late to rectify some issues. Now more than ever before people are aware of the shortage of water and the damage caused by carbon dioxide emissions and pollution. They see the effects of climate change in their everyday lives. We have a primary responsibility to seek, find and implement courses of action in an attempt to halt the downward spiral of environmental damage and climate change. The best place to start is at home! Look at your garden and think about what you are perhaps already doing to harm the environment.

The environmental drawbacks of genuine lawns are easy enough to tally. Lawns are thirsty, of course! The average American lawn gulps down 21,600 gallons of water per year. Lawns planted atop sandy soil can be particularly wasteful since they drain more quickly. Water usage problems are particularly acute when a homeowner insists on laying sod that is ill-suited to the local climate.

Another knock against real grass is that it's frequently drizzled with fertilizer, most of which is synthetic. American homeowners use about 3 million metric tons of synthetic lawn fertilizer per year. The fossil fuel equivalent of a barrel of oil goes into manufacturing 560 pounds of such fertilizer, so our collective lawn habit costs us more than 11.8 million barrels of oil annually. We also use 70 million pounds of pesticides and herbicides on our lawns every year. Clippings that are improperly disposed of can end up polluting major waterways.

Gas-powered mowers, meanwhile, are hazardous to more than just eardrums. A 2001 study by Sweden's Stockholm University found that an hour's worth of mowing resulted in the same amount of smog-forming emissions as driving a car 93 miles. Mower manufacturers contend that their newer models have become cleaner, yet they still resist calls to add catalytic converters to their products; according to the Swedes, doing so would reduce mower emissions by 80 percent.
