Anything other than perfect weather can be punishing to a natural lawn. Natural grass does not have what it takes to stand up against changing weather patterns. If it is too hot, then it will wither unless you spend a lot of money watering it.
Too much rain can also result in a muddy and flooded yard, or if you are unlucky, it may even promote the growth of mildew or grass diseases.
However, by getting artificial grass installed by professionals from DFW Turf Solutions, you can transform your lawn into a weather-resistant backyard without much effort.
Consider the following weather-resistant qualities of a turf:
It starts with the materials
Artificial turfs are made using polyethylene and numerous other synthetic materials that are often better at resisting harsh weather conditions.
Artificial turf made using polypropylene tends to be resilient and durable. On the other hand, Nylon artificial turf is going to deliver you a higher heat tolerance level.
The drainage underlay will help you add another layer of weather protection to your lawn. During installation, our professionals from DFW Turf Solutions will lay the artificial turf over the drainage system.
This will allow water to flow away from the lawn easily and not cause any damage to the grass. This is an ideal replacement for homeowners who live in a place where heavy rain constantly ruins your natural lawn and results in water puddling.
No more freezing in the winter
Unfortunately, homeowners living in cold climates cannot do anything but watch their natural grass freeze during the winter season. The unprecedented 2021’s Texas winter storm proves that there is no predicting the weather.
If you wish to have a weather-resistant lawn, then you need to consider getting artificial turf installed. Thanks to high-quality materials and long-lasting durability, artificial turf will not go brittle and freeze during winters and can withstand heavy snowfall and winter storms without much effort.
Artificial grass makes seasonal care quick and effortless
Besides making your lawn better at resisting harsh weather conditions, having synthetic grass installed can also help you simplify seasonal upkeep. It often boils down to two significant tasks: grooming and cleaning. You can do both these tasks in less than an hour, depending on the total size of your lawn.
The level of upkeep chores required to maintain your artificial grass will change depending on the seasons. Let us now take a look at what artificial turf needs:
Turf care is effortless during the spring season
Upkeep of artificial turf during the spring season involves effortless, post-winter cleaning chores. Let the sunlight melt the snow from your frozen synthetic turf. If you wish to speed up the process, you can consider pouring hot water on your ice-covered lawn.
Once your artificial lawn is free of snow, frost, and ice, you need to start picking up any substantial debris from the surface.
After you are done cleaning, you need to hose down the entire turf thoroughly. If there are any lingering odors, you can use a water and soap solution to wash. Once done washing, you can brush up the artificial grass.
Artificial turf stays perfect during summers.
Your artificial grass will stay unaffected during the summer. Rinse, clean, and brush up your artificial grass as you seem fit during the summer season.
Wash away spills and pick up pet waste immediately if you wish to prevent any long-lasting stains. Brush all areas that tend to get a ton of foot traffic.
Pick up debris during the fall season.
Even though you do not have to stress about winterizing your synthetic grass to ensure that it survives the coming winter months easily, that doesn’t mean that you have to put in the bare minimum to its maintenance.
In fact, with plants and trees shedding leaves during the fall, you will have to ensure that your artificial turf stays clear of debris.
Remove any fallen branches, leaves, and other types of natural debris from your artificial turf. You can use a leaf blower or a broom to help you with this process.
However, you need to ensure that you don’t use any tools that have hard or metal ends if you wish to avoid damaging your artificial grass. Keep a garbage bag and a dustpan handy during your clean-up sessions.
Forget about winterizing with artificial turf.
Ice, frost, snow, and even below-freezing temperatures are not a match for a good-quality synthetic lawn. Nevertheless, if you wish to take extra effort into protecting your turf from elements, you can consider covering it using a tarp.
Not only will a tarp prevent the snow from blanketing over the synthetic turf, but it will also help you access your lawn throughout the winters. Lift the tarp whenever you wish to access your yard.
