The Grass Isn't Real! Benefits Of Artificial Turf For Homes With Kids

Posted on: 14 May 2020

Artificial turf, more colloquially known as "fake grass," is often seen as an option for football fields and baseball diamonds. But it's also a really good choice for residential yards — especially those owned by families with kids! Here are a few of the kid- and family-friendly benefits you can look forward to with "fake grass."

1. Your kids won't come in with allergy symptoms as often.

So many people are allergic to grass pollen. For kids who like to play in the grass, this can be a real issue. If they roll around in the yard or even stop to pick up some toys in the yard, they come inside all sneezing and itchy! With fake grass, this won't be an issue. Kids with seasonal allergies can lay in the lawn, sit down in the lawn, rummage around for toys, and so forth —  without any worry of worsening symptoms. 

2. You won't have to worry about muddy clothes.

Artificial turf gets wet when it rains, but those puddles stay clean. They're not muddy and gross like the puddles in a real grass yard. So you can let your kids play outside without the hassle of cleaning muddy shoes, muddy pants, and muddy faces! This will keep your bathtub and the interior of your home a lot cleaner, too.

3. You won't have to mow the lawn.

As a busy parent, you probably don't have a lot of extra time to dedicate to lawn care. Wouldn't you rather spend that time playing with your kids, anyway? With artificial turf, you never have to mow the lawn. This gives you at least an extra hour or two to spend with your kids each week. You don't have to fertilize, apply weed remover, or trim around the fences, either, which saves you even more time.

4. The kids won't damage the lawn.

Artificial turf stands up to professional football players. Surely, it can stand up to the rough-housing your kids might do on it! You won't get big worn spots or muddy pits like you would if the kids were to slide and run excessively around on real grass. You can let them play as hard as they want without worrying that your landscape will show damage as a result.

Artificial turf is an increasingly common choice for backyards — especially those with kids. Upgrade to fake grass, and enjoy the many benefits.


Constructing and Filling Raised Garden Beds

Hi there, I am Kirk Blathers. I would like to share my knowledge about raised garden beds, so I created this website. My raised garden beds house tons of bulbs that push up out of the ground as soon as the warm weather arrives. Alongside the beds, I have a few tubs full of fresh herbs and vegetables that climb the trellises. I would love to share the information I've gathered about created raised bed frames from scratch. Some people have used actual bed frames while others created the beds out of wood materials. I will also discuss soil, seed, and fertilizer selection for each bed size and type. I hope that the information I share will help you create a beautiful set of raised beds for your yard. Thanks.
