And speaking of green goodness, artificial turf in San Diego is good for the environment. Not only does it play a large role in water conservation, but it also reduces emissions from lawnmowers. That may not seem like a big deal, but the EPA estimates gas mowers represent 5% of U.S. air pollution. One hour of mowing is equivalent to driving 11 new cars for an hour!
Safe for Kids and Pets
Grass lawns are a fun place to play for kids and pets, but they come with some downfalls. For one, they come with a lot of bugs and allergens. For two, real grass lawns are often treated with weed killers, fertilizers, and chemical pesticides that can be dangerous for children and pets.
Artificial lawns are hypo-allergenic, which makes it a great place for your kids and hypo-allergenic dogs to play! Oh, and don’t worry, it’s great for non-hypo-allergenic dogs too. Synthetic grass is also non-toxic and doesn’t require chemicals to maintain.
After you install artificial turf, you will notice a decline in bug infestations. Ants, earwigs, crickets, grasshoppers, ladybugs, fleas, and spiders will be much less interested in your yard. You might miss the ladybugs, but good riddance to those fleas!
