If you are debating switching to turf or artificial lawns but are not sure of what is involved or why people switch, then be sure to read about the four common uses of turf.
4 Uses for Athletic or Synthetic Turf
1. Not Only Athletic Turf
When most people think of artificial turf, they think of athletic turf being used for sports facilities, but that isn’t the only place where synthetic turf can be useful. One of the greatest strengths of having the turf installed is that it’s extremely low maintenance, so it stays looking beautiful and new throughout all seasons. It’s become a popular option for residential and commercial properties alike, due to its professional look and easy installation.
2. Residential Landscaping
As we all know, having a great-looking grass lawn can be A LOT of work to maintain, which is time- consuming. With artificial turf or waterless grass, you can have a lush looking lawn without any hassling with mowing or fertilizing.
Owning a business is a ton of work and hiring landscaping crews can be costly. Many businesses have been turning to artificial turf to keep their business professional looking with minimal effort.
4. Dog Parks
Public and private dog parks alike have started to have synthetic turf installed, and having a turf spot for your pet at home is a great idea as well! Turf drains very well, so there aren’t puddles and mud left over after it rains. Clean up is also easy with the turf when your pet has to do their business.
In a similar use to athletic turf in sports facilities, commercial gyms have started to install turf for its soft impact and traction. Athletic turf in gyms allow you to mimic sports drills that you’d typically need to practice outdoors, so gym-goers love it!
