The Benefits of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass (otherwise known as synthetic turf) is a low maintenance, attractive, and affordable addition to your landscape design. Add up all the time and money it takes for you to maintain your Texas lawn, year after year. Nevertheless, after all your work and investment, you've got dead spots, bare patches, and the rest of the yard is a lackluster shade of brownish green.

Artificial grass is so practical, you'll wonder why you didn't install it long ago.

  • Save Time
    No more mowing, weeding, fertilizing, seeding, re-seeding, and other natural grass maintenance. Free up your weekends!
  • Save Money
    The products, supplies, and equipment you need for lawn care add up to thousands of dollars, with no end in sight. You don't need them if your yard boasts artificial grass. Plus, you can avoid a cringe-worthy lawn watering bill. The average Austin homeowner with an automatic irrigation system uses an average of 64 gallons of water in only 30 minutes of watering time. Save up to 50% on your monthly water bill.
  • Long Lasting Investment
    The life expectancy of artificial grass is 15 to 20 years. It's always a healthy, vibrant green, and there are no mud puddles, brown patches, or dead areas.
  • Eco-Friendly Solution
    Besides saving water, artificial grass reduces pollution. Consider air pollution from gas-powered mowers and ground pollution from fertilizers and pesticides.
  • Organic Pest Control
    Natural grass attracts critters, bugs, and insects. Pests are not attracted to artificial grass, and there's no need to treat it with pesticides. Wild animals, like rabbits and gophers, avoid synthetic grass because there is no nutritional benefit and they can no longer build their homes in it.

Artificial grass is a gorgeous, low-maintenance landscaping feature no matter the square footage installed. It enhances your curb appeal! Tailor it to your lifestyle by installing synthetic turf as a decorative element, for a children's play area, for the dogs or entertaining, or even as a backyard putting green.

Artificial Grass FAQs

Though synthetic turf is very low maintenance, you can keep it looking fresh with some occasional TLC:
  • Groom your turf with a brush broom, rake, or leaf blower to remove fallen leaves, branches, or other debris.
  • Rinse the surface with a hose to remove dust, dirt, and pollen.
  • Brush artificial grass against the grain with a stiff broom. This action stands the blades straight up.
The synthetic grass product YardDoc installs features built-in U.V. inhibitors. Incorporated within the yarn process, these inhibitors hold the yarn's color even in the most harsh and sunny conditions for 10 to 15 years.
Artificial grass is strong and durable. Each individual blade handles an extensive amount of foot traffic and is tufted into the polyurethane backing.
Synthetic turf is ideal for large amounts of rainfall. The backing is perforated with holes that measure approximately ½ centimeter in diameter and can drain at a rate of over 30 inches per hour per square yard. Because it percolates the water faster than natural grass, it will dry faster and leave no mud puddles. Feel free to enjoy the backyard right after a rain.
There is no conclusive evidence that artificial grass increases the actual value of your home. However, it can increase your resale value by providing great curb appeal, cost-savings, and a low maintenance option for your buyer. They benefit from it the same way you do. Real estate studies suggest that you can increase the value of your home 5-15 percent by upgrading your landscape.
