What Is Artificial Turf?

Artificial turf is an excellent alternative to natural grass. There are many benefits to replacing natural grass in both public and private areas. Synthetic grass is a beautiful and durable addition to any landscaping project.

Why Artificial Turf Is Gaining Popularity in Philadelphia

why-you-need-artificial-turf-in-philadelphia-artificial-grass-goat-turf-artificial-turf-installationAs downtown life is exploding and with the suburbs experiencing significant growth, artificial turf in Philadelphia is increasing in popularity. Mid-rise and high-rise residents in the urban core are using synthetic grass for rooftops, patios, and balconies to create more livable, functional spaces. And homeowners are replacing real grass with fake grass for lawns, landscaping, and dog and pet areas, leveraging the economical and environmental advantages of artificial grass in Philadelphia and eastern Pennsylvania.

In short, natural grass looks nice when properly maintained, but that takes a lot of time, effort, and money. Replacing your natural grass with synthetic turf in Philadelphia installed by Goat Turf can be good for you and your wallet.

Looks Great

It takes a lot of work to keep a natural lawn looking nice and healthy. Weeding and mowing are time-consuming, and even well-cared-for grass has seasonal fluctuations in color and appearance. Our synthetic turf looks good all year long. There is no need to water or fertilize an artificial lawn to keep it lush and green, even during an unusually hot summer. There is never any need to mow or weed it, either. Your lawn will always be green, lush, and ready to enjoy.

Saves Money

Grass lawns are expensive. While the equipment needed to maintain a lawn may not seem expensive, the costs of lawnmowers, edgers, and numerous other tools add up. There is also the matter of storage, fuel, and maintenance to consider.

Fertilizer is also a significant expense. Chemical fertilizers can be expensive and can damage lawns if they aren’t applied properly. They can also have undesirable environmental impacts.

Perhaps the highest cost is that of water. The average American lawn is responsible for more than two-thirds of its owner’s monthly water usage. With artificial turf, there is no need to water, and this can generate huge savings. This is especially welcome with rising water costs in the Philadelphia area.

Clean and Tidy

A well-groomed lawn is surprisingly messy. Not only can mowing be a tiresome chore, but it also produces piles of clippings. No matter the strategy a homeowner relies on to dispose of their grass clippings, some slip through the cracks and get into places where they don’t belong.

This is never an issue with artificial grass. There are never any trimmings to deal with, so you never find them making an unsightly mess or gumming up your pool or fountains.

The synthetic grass we install also has exceptional drainage properties. With artificial turf, you can help prevent standing water from building up in your yard. Whether you have pets, kids, or both, mud from a wet lawn won’t be tracked into your house.

Lastly, unlike natural grass lawns, which can harbor pests like fleas and ticks, synthetic turf deters these pests and helps prevent the spread of disease. The bottom line: artificial lawns can be a safer choice for your pets.
