Is artificial turf slippery when wet?
Most people find a beautiful lawn attractive. A key marketing feature is that each home has a beautiful lawn and yard.
The same is true now, but with one big difference in modern times: artificial grass is much better than natural grass. Thanks to technology, homeowners can enjoy all the benefits of real grass without the hassle and expensive maintenance. Recent advances in science and technology have produced materials and manufacturing processes that allow you to choose durable and weather-resistant artificial grass over the real thing.
Among the many advantages of artificial grass, it is also anti-allergic and environmentally sustainable. What's more, it provides more security for you and your family.
Real grass needs a lot of water and chemicals to thrive, it holds water. That makes it slippery -- and dangerous -- when wet. Ever walk across your lawn after it rained or was recently watered? The chances of slipping and falling on grass, even just covered with morning or evening dew, are much greater than walking on moisture-wicking artificial grass. Now imagine your child trying to run and play on wet natural grass!
Artificial grass is a perfectly safe alternative because even though it looks like natural grass -- and feels better -- artificial grass doesn't slip when wet. High-quality synthetic grass designed and installed to ensure fast moisture drainage. Compare that to natural grass in a pool, making your lawn or yard messy, muddy and dangerous until excess water seeps into the ground and evaporates into the air.
Ideal for pool areas
For homeowners with swimming pools, artificial turf is the perfect compliment. The swimming pool provides hours of fun for children and adults. However, playing in the pool also means collateral damage when all the chlorinated water splashes onto the natural lawn surrounding the pool, resulting in additional repair costs. This isn't a problem when you use fast-draining artificial grass that won't be damaged by pool water.
You won't have to worry about you or your kids slipping and falling while running around the pool, or slipping while trying to make a quick leap across a scorching concrete landscape. Your artificial grass landscape will keep the pool area cool because it does not retain heat. Also, artificial grass can be easily installed on these hard surfaces.
Natural grass is fragile. Compared with artificial grass, artificial grass will not wear down, form uneven depressions, and will not be penetrated by dogs who like to dig holes in the lawn. Artificial turf is a safer option for any play area except pool areas. It reduces the risk of falls, turned ankles and other injuries.
PETGROW also has artificial grass specially designed for dogs. The sand and rubber fill we use further improves drainage without residue or odor.
While your artificial grass is virtually maintenance-free, sometimes it needs some quick and easy cleaning. You only need to rinse it once a month to remove dust and any other fine debris. Most spills can be wiped up or rinsed away with water. Paint is easily removed with a little paint thinner and rinse. Eventually, with enough foot traffic, the artificial grass blades will temporarily flatten, but you can easily bring them back to life with a gentle sweep with a stiff-bristled broom.
These many advantages make artificial grass the best solution not only for your home landscaping needs but also for many other purposes including event venues. Have you ever dreamed of owning a home putting green? Heavenly Greens can custom make one for you so you can get some extra practice before you take on your golf mates. No need to worry about losing your footing due to rain.
The important safety factor that artificial grass provides a non-slip surface even when it gets wet is enough to keep people from using natural grass. Considering all the qualities artificial grass offers, it is the perfect way to enhance your valuable property.
