Artificial grass is safe for kids, animals and is a great solution for creating the yard you want. Artificial grass is used for all types of yards, playgrounds and putting greens. Some other benefits of artificial grass include: no more fertilizing, no allergies if you are allergic to grass, no more grass disposal, no weeds, it doesn’t fade over time, no patches of dirt showing through, no mud, mold or bugs.

Some questions that have been asked about installing artificial grass are will any type of animal feces ruin the artificial grass? The answer to that is no, and therefore you won’t find any brown spots from animals on your grass. People ask about maintenance and the answer to this is about once a month people should consider brushing the artificial grass. This helps to remove unnecessary debris that has fallen. When you brush your artificial grass, brush against the grain and the blades will return back to an upright vertical position. We all know that autumn is the time of year that leaves will fall and you can use a leaf blower to remove excessive debris from your new artificial grass.
