Synthetic Turf for lawns safetyby Garden Mark Where the
Synthetic turf landscaping is always a safe alternative. Mowing natural lawns is not only tiresome but every year we come across news of accidents about people getting injured and sometimes even getting killed. No one is willing to take this risk and more so when you have an alternative that can give as fresh a topography as a lush natural spread and with negligible maintenance costs. If you are risk loving and don’t mind a bit of injuries you might certainty appreciate the fact that safety here comes with lot less a price!
After the first was created, environmental concerns led to the development of more eco-friendly products. Nylon fibers were replaced by polyethylene fiber which is just as durable but much softer and more natural in appearance. The material is a lot more biodegradable than the original AstroTurf material. In fact, a new form of artificial grass is being marketed that is 65% green and more biodegradable than anything else in the history of synthetic turf. The material is being manufactured by Universal Textile Technologies under the patented name of BioCelTM. The first of the synthetic turfs were linked to injuries and illness concerns for the players but according to the new regulations, artificial grass should be safe for humans, animals and the environment alike. They come lead free and are always tested for high metal content.
Artificial grass was always used in athletic fields and sporting complexes until some years ago. Today, it is available for the average homeowner such that he may keep his lawn clean and green all round the year. The added advantages of being children and pet friendly, low maintenance and environmentally friendly makes it a sure choice for anyone willing. Your pets will not be able to dig through and get those creepy insect bites nor will your kids crawl into the house with muddy feet. There is in fact no hassle of having a synthetic turf in place. A synthetic lawn gets more attractive and useful with age.
It has also been proved that natural lawns contain more amounts of microorganisms like fungi and bacteria and this is made more severe by the use of herbicides, pesticides, weedicides and all sorts of chemicals. When your pets or kids play on them, it is a more risky situation as compared to their playing on a synthetic lawn. For the pets, they wouldn’t even know that this is not real grass!
Many companies are extending a warranty exceeding even upto 10 years. Thus, one can rightly imagine the potential of an investment. Apart from being safe till your kid grows up you will not have to spend a penny on maintenance of your lawn except some dusting now and then.
