Why Artificial Grass Is Better Than Natural Grass For Sports Fields

Why Artificial Grass Is Better Than Natural Grass For Sports Fields.
Artificial grass for sports fields has become very popular across the globe within the last ten years. Many local sports fields as well as many professional stadiums have installed artificial grass in recent years. The general consensus is very positive. Even the worldwide soccer association, FIFA, has recognized its advantages. Artificial grass provides many advantages over natural grass when it comes to sporting events such as baseball, football, golf, lacrosse, rugby, field hockey, soccer and softball. A big perk is that artificial grass can be used at any time of any day throughout any season of the year. Whether the field is being hit by a heat wave or subzero temperatures, it is usable. Most artificial grass fields have drainage systems built underneath so that they are playable after, or even during, a rainstorm. Besides the superb amount of availability, artificial grass sports fields are cost-effective. Artificial grass is a low maintenance product and does not require aeration, chemicals, fertilizing, mowing, trimming, watering, weeding out, and other maintenance activities that may cost a fortune. Artificial grass is also long-lasting; most products built to last about 20 years. When I mention durability over time, I also mean durability throughout a daily beating of action sports (with cleats). Artificial grass is a neat product and very easy to clean after use. Rain takes care of washing it for you. The cushion, non-abrasiveness and softness of these artificial grass athletic fields considerably reduce the fall impact and therefore reduce the injuries in players. The surface is graded and there are no risks of stepping on erosion areas, holes, muddy spots, rough surfaces, or water puddles.

Increasing your Home Value with Artificial Grass

Increasing your Home Value with Artificial Grass.
How does a 100-200% return on investment (ROI) sound? Money Magazine‘s story on home renovations, as well as Penn State’s Department of Landscape Architecture, agree that a well done landscaping job is the best way to improve a home’s resale value. When people think of remodeling their home to improve it’s value, they rarely think of landscaping with artificial grass. The first few remodels that come to mind are a new kitchen, a new bathroom, or new swimming pool. Homeowners are beginning to look more towards the expanding industry of artificial grass to invest in their home. The perks of artificial grass on lifestyle, maintenance time and cost, and the environment are among the more well known advantages. A spike in home value is something that every homeowner should add to that list. With artificial grass, your home will improve it’s curb appeal. Purchase Green can provide you with everything that you need to blend your surroundings with a personally ideal artificial grass. When trying to sell your house, artificial grass will not only add direct value to your home, but will play an aesthetic role in the selling of your home for real estate agents and home buyers. When two houses are virtually the same in all other aspects, the one with more curb appeal will sell faster. Artificial grass can increase the perceived square footage of a lawn and add to your house’s usable area. It’s tough to define what is pleasing in a landscape job, but it is obvious when something is not. An ugly lawn speaks to the type of owner and how the entire house is cared for. But so does a beautiful lawn.
