Turf Doctor Shares All The News On Fake Grass
In our latest Saskatoon Landscaping article, we discuss fake grass!
Fake Grass, You Say?
Don’t scoff. Synthetic turf is moving beyond football fields and golf courses to become more common in home landscapes. Is it right for you? Find out here.
Where to use synthetic grass:
-Anywhere you want the look of grass without the maintenance and water bills of real grass
-Areas that have inhospitable conditions for growing real grass
-At home putting greens
-Anywhere you want to reduce your carbon footprint
Pros: Synthetic grass requires no mowing, trimming, watering, fertilizing or pesticides. It reduces your water bill, looks great year-round and is available for purchase alone or with installation. Very natural looking types are available, making it virtually impossible to tell fake grass from real grass unless it’s closely inspected.
Cons: The initial cost of synthetic grass is more than turf rolls and it does take skill to properly install. When the snow melts, it is perfect and green, and is the only time it is visibly artificial.
WARNING: Check out Facebook Marketplace….
The least expensive types can look cheap and unnatural, so it pays to invest in a quality turf that is intended for the climate and region we live in. With various newcomers in the artificial turf market, no one can offer the level of quality turf and superior customer service that Turf Doctor provides. If you are considering another product, please be certain that you are dealing with a reputable firm that has experienced installers who are specialized in the artificial grass industry.
Cost: Synthetic grass is initially expensive, but in time you will recoup your investment with a lower water bill, fewer chemicals and less maintenance. The countless hours you save not having to maintain your yard, too many, is invaluable. What price are you willing to place on your time?
Considerations: Synthetic grass comes in a wide range of quality – and in general, you get what you pay for. Homeowners who have strong DIY experience can take on a project like this, however, most should consider hiring a professional. Turf Doctor only sells and installs Perfect Turf Synthetic Grass.
