7 Reasons to Consider Artificial Turf in Northern Virginia

The demand for artificial turf is flourishing. Many Northern Virginia homeowners are making the switch to synthetic grass.

1. Artificial Turf Maintains Lawn Beauty as you Save Money Annually

Our Affordable Lawn Sprinklers Artificial Turf customers save thousands of dollars each year by not cutting, fertilizing, watering, aerating, seeding, and applying chemicals.  Our Northern Virginia lawns are comprised of loamy, clay soil. Establishing and maintaining lush, beautiful yards in these soil conditions is a challenge.  Affordable Artificial Turf eliminates that challenge.  

2. Eliminate Weeds, Pests, and Diseases with Artificial Turf

Artificial grass involves a weed-proof foundation and doesn’t attract pests. Natural grass attracts grubs and other insects that thrive in natural soil. Insects attract other insects and in some cases larger pests, like raccoons and snakes. Synthetic turf doesn’t involve this natural foundation needed for either weeds or pests to thrive. Artificial grass also eliminates the need for harsh pesticides.  This is a welcome safety feature as our kids and pets enjoy the outdoors.  

3. No Puddles = No Mud

Because artificial turf doesn’t require water, you don’t need to worry about standing water and mud. Our Affordable Lawn Sprinklers team members are experts at drainage strategy.  

4. No Need for Chemical Fertilizer with Synthetic Grass

When you replace your lawn with artificial grass, you have an evergreen landscaping cover. Your yard will remain lush and green with minimal maintenance. You will not need to spend money each year buying fertilizer.  You will also eliminate the safety and ecological implications that chemical fertilizers pose. 

5. No Need for Weekend Maintenance

If you are tired of the time you spend maintaining your lawn, artificial turf will give you back valuable weekend time. Your HOA and your neighbors will be pleased (and a little jealous) of the beauty of your front yard. You will be busy enjoying friends, family, and maybe even your artificial turf putting green!

6. Eliminate Air Pollution from Gas-powered Lawn Mowers

Gas-powered gardening equipment, including mowers, edgers, and blowers, produces a disturbing amount of pollution. Spending an hour behind a roaring lawn mower can spew nearly the same amount of oily pollution into the air as a 100-mile car trip, according to a Swedish study.

7. Synthetic Grass Conserves Water

Artificial turf doesn’t require water, other than an occasional rinse if you have pets. This allows you to reduce your water usage, avoid excessive water use fines, and save money month after month.
