A turf field is great for a variety of applications. Whether you want synthetic turf for your home or business to simply replace a grass lawn, you can enjoy much less maintenance and a yard that is green 100% of the time. Alternatively, turf is used frequently for both sports and for pets. Dog parks and daycares use turf because it provides a play area with no mud, no pests, and is fun for dogs to play on. Gyms and indoor/outdoor athletic facilities use turf because it provides a consistent play area. But with all the benefits of turf, it is important to consider how long it takes before turf needs to be replaced. In this article, we will cover when and how to get your turf repaired or replaced.
What Is The Lifespan of Turf?
If you have artificial turf you might be wondering what the average lifespan is. That can depend on a few factors. Environmental factors, foot traffic, use, and materials will all have an effect on how long it lasts. For example, if you use turf for a dog kennel, it is going to have much more foot, or paw, traffic. It is possible the dogs might tear at the turf and that it will see more wear and tear quickly compared to someone who simply has a turf installation in their front or backyard. This is why it is important to discuss the use of your turf with your turf installation company. They can make recommendations on what turf products are best for your home or business, that way your turf lasts longer and has additional features designed for your needs. For example, a homeowner with pets would want to get improved drainage solutions so that their turf isn’t ruined when their dog uses the bathroom.
What To Do When Turf Gets Damaged
If your turf starts to show signs of wear and tear, you can always call a local turf company to help with simple repairs. In some cases, sections of turf can be easily replaced instead of replacing the entire turf installation. But if it has been 10 or so years you might want to consider a full turf replacement as you may see signs of wear and tear throughout the turf installation.
