It is no secret that millions of Americans suffer from environmental allergies year-round, and one of the largest culprits is front yard and backyard grass. As summer comes to a close, autumn brings with it big environmental changes. Leaves change from a deep green to orange, brown, yellow, and red. Bales of hay seem to be everywhere from decorative touches on residential porches to pumpkin patches, mazes and hayrides. With all of these environmental and décor changes, allergy symptoms are quick to appear. These could manifest as sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes.
Grass allergies, like other environmental allergies, stem from the pollen itself. As the wind picks up and pollen is shifted around the home, families experience uncomfortable symptoms. In North and South Carolina, where grass is abundant, many families experience a wide range of severity with allergies and often miss some of the most beautiful moments of fall. After all, it is difficult to appreciate the leaves changing from behind a Kleenex.
Luckily, there are plenty of options to help stave off seasonal allergies. Our team has installed artificial turf in countless homes throughout the Carolinas to help alleviate allergy symptoms. Synthetic turf has no pollen to disperse, which means families can enjoy outdoor activities free from allergy attacks. Artificial grass installations also prevent weeds, such as dandelions, from blooming. If your neighbors are particularly fond of blooms you react to, a quick spray of the hose will wash away pollen that has made its way into your yard.
Allergies aren’t specific to humans; four legged family members can suffer from seasonal allergies as well. Dogs and cats often trudge through pollen-heavy grass and carry these allergens back inside the home. Artificial turf can help keep pollen off of your pets and out of your home for an easy fall season.
In addition to countless health benefits, artificial turf brings curb appeal to any yard. Synthetic grass feels and performs better than traditional grass and looks good all year long. Don’t waste another minute watering and overwatering a lawn that is resistant to fall when you could have a green lawn year-round with very little maintenance. Artificial grass is stunning immediately after it is installed and is very easy to maintain. You can use a leaf blower knowing the grass will stay intact and look as beautiful as ever.
Don’t allow seasonal allergies to keep you locked indoors. Artificial turf is a smart way to reduce the occurrence of seasonal allergies and will help you keep a clear head, clean home and gorgeous green yard. Talk to a team member at SYNLawn Carolina and get started on your next project!
