Now that it’s summer, many homeowners will spend hours on their landscaping. Raleigh residents with natural sod lawns know the hassle of scheduling times to water and mow. Artificial grass installations eliminate the need for tedious maintenance, especially during the summer when natural sod needs the most attention. Get your life back this summer and opt for artificial turf to meet all your landscaping needs.
Summer Lawn Care
During the warmer months, homeowners with natural sod can be found outside meticulously manicuring their lawns. It’s recommended that you leave your grass at a specific length, keep lawn mower blades sharp and sprinkler systems at the ready. This means hours and hours of planning just to make sure your lawn survives the summer. Thankfully, artificial grass is a breeze to care for and requires almost no maintenance all year long. Instead of spending hours every week maintaining your lawn, you can devote mere minutes every month to care for your artificial turf. This means more time spent with family, friends and life’s other passions.
It’s no secret that natural sod is thirsty for water, and even more so in the summer when water is scarce. Homeowners may unintentionally over water their lawns to combat the dry environment. Even worse, this increase in water use can be useless, as most of it evaporates before it’s absorbed by the soil. Typically, Raleigh homeowners with artificial grass installed will brush and hose down their lawns a few times a month. In the summer, you can skip the hose all together and give your lawn an extra brushing to make up for it. Unless there is debris that needs to be removed with water, you can eliminate all outdoor water usage for a few months which is great for both the environment and your water bill.
Keep the Surface Cool
There was a time when artificial grass was not the ideal product that it is now. It was stiff, coarse and got extremely hot in the sun. It was rendered useless in the summer. Thankfully this is not an industry standard anymore. SYNLawn has even taken keeping cool a step further. We developed HeatBlock Technology to effectively regulate the surface temperature of your artificial lawn. The surface of your lawn reflects sunlight to reduce heat build-up, which keeps your grass cool to the touch.
We also offer an antimicrobial turf cooling solution called T Cool. This innovative system lowers the surface temperatures of your turf by up to 50 degrees, as well as reduces odors that are caused by pet waste. The system stores moisture, and slowly releases it as the temperatures outside rise. This is extremely important for Raleigh residents with pets and small children who use the lawn most frequently. They don’t have to worry about burnt paws or little toes any longer. Your family can also enjoy your outdoor space without unpleasant smells. Artificial turf can be used year-round, making it the perfect destination for all your summer activities.
