Is Turf grass a good idea?

Synthetic grass for landscaping and recreation is growing 10% to 15% a year in the U.S. A lot of people are turning to turf grass to achieve an ascetically greener lawn, but is it a good idea? Turf grass does not have to be watered, mowed or fertilized. Which can be seen as a nice investment. It limits the need to be taken care of, especially when you live in a dry climate. Most synthetic grass is made of nylon, polypropylene or polyethylene.

Purchasing turf can seem like the end to constantly grooming your lawn. On average artificial grass can be from $7 to $23 per square foot. Although, you won’t have to care for it for up to 25 years. In comparison, real grass has to be cared for, which include numerous products and resources that could cost a lot. Turf grass is also more environmentally friendly. Real grass has to mowed, which releases air pollutants. Also mowers are pretty noisy, contributing to noise pollution. Most people do not like the idea of having synthetic grass in their yard, because it doesn’t feel like natural grass even though it look a lot like it.

When considering turf over real grass, you should consider what do you want out of your lawn. Do you want to purchase turf purely for visual purposes or for environmental reasons or maybe for maintenance reasons. Whatever it may be, make sure you research and prepare for a large investment.

Curb Appeal

Nearly every homeowner wants to scenery for curb appeal. Maximizing your yard’s features and minimizing its glitches to create a beautiful street view should not be difficult, daunting, or pricey. No matter your style or plant preferences, here are some ideas to transform your front yard into an attractive, good-looking place.

Consider the seasons. A landscape that goes dormant in the winter will look foreshadowing and bleak. A landscape with curb appeal includes structural foundations such as trees and shrubs, as well as materials that look good in spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

Consider the house. Lots of people look at the size of the lawn or the shape and slope of the front yard, but many people forget a critical consideration in landscaping for curb appeal. “Rule No. 1, and the one that I see ignored a lot, is that the most enormous object in the garden is your home

Keep it low-maintenance. Even if you enjoy gardening, items that require a lot of maintenance may appeal to you, but for curb appeal, may be a turn off

Turn to the color wheel. The color of your house should be a consideration in choosing plants to landscape for curb appeal and should be complimentary

Winning the War on Weeds

Weeds are undoubtedly a nuisance and major threat to a pristine lawn. They pop up everywhere and if they go unchecked, weeds will completely take over your lawn. By competing with other plants and grass for nutrients and water, weeds take up space and serve no beneficial purpose to your lawn. No one wants to deal with weeds, but sometimes we neglect to take proper care of our lawns. Maintaining a luscious lawn can be especially tiring when you are a busy person. However, they are some effective ways to deal with weeds that require little time. Here are some tips to mitigate or eliminate a weed infestation:

Create a weeding schedule.

Find a couple of minutes during your lawn maintenance routine to tackle weeds. Attacking your entire yard in a day can be frustrating especially when there are more weeds than there are of you.

Easy Weeding

After good rainfall is the best time to pull weeds. The ground is looser which makes the weeds much easier to pull than in dryer conditions.

Deadheading

Hand pulling weeds takes a lot of work and takes a longer time. By chopping off the heads of the weeds, you can prevent them from reseeding.

Mulch it up

Mulching weed-ridden areas or part of your lawn could reduce the amount of weeds invading your space.

Give it away
