Replace Your Grass With Turf To Make Things Easier For You

About Me
Make Your Yard Come Alive

I'm glad you visited my website on landscaping. My name is Lucia Nash. I have a very busy and exciting garden. The feeder is always active with sparrows. We put a couple hummingbird feeders out and they visit us every summer. There are many types of birds that visit my yard. So many of my friends wonder why my yard is so busy with gorgeous animals, not the destructive kind, but the types that are just a pleasure to have around. The answer to that question is difficult to sum up in a few sentences, so I decided it was better to write blog posts on how to create a great yard.


Replace Your Grass With Turf To Make Things Easier For You

If you have time to take care of your yard, the grass will grow too tall which affects your landscaping. One thing you can do is replace your grass with turf. Keep reading to learn the benefits of doing this. 

No Maintenance

With grass, you must fertilize it periodically to keep it lush and green. Turf does not grow so you do not have to apply fertilizer to it. It will always look lush and green and healthy. Fertilizers can be dangerous around children because they can put toxins in the air. 

You do not have to worry about mowing the turf ever. This can save you a lot of time. You could even sell your lawnmower if you only have turf in your yard so you can make money. If you have small areas of grass, you could use a weed eater to remove it. 

No Water Puddles

Before a company installs turf in a yard, they remove all vegetation and then roll and smooth the soil. This makes the area flat without any type of dips and grooves. When you have regular grass water pools in these areas, which can lead to a big mess. It can also affect the yard and kill the grass if you get a lot of rain.  There may be cases where irrigation channels will be added before the turf is installed to drain water away from the yard. 

With turf, you will not have to worry about any pooling water when it rains. Instead, the water sinks down into the turf and off the surface. This means even if it is raining you will not have to worry about stepping into a lot of water puddles and getting your shoes wet. You also do not have to worry about mud building up in the yard if there are no puddles. 

Safer for Your Children

Turf is safer if you have children that play in the yard. You do not have to worry about your children getting into harmful fertilizers or pesticides or any toxic chemicals that may be used on a regular lawn. 

This is also beneficial if you have pets that play outside on your lawn. If they pee on the turf, it will sink down. If they poop on the turf, you can easily clean this up using a poop bag or another way.
