As winter has arrived, and an increase in rain or snow has thus accompanied it, synthetic grass has been a hassle-free and money saving lawn alternative for many households that have it installed. In the winter, temperatures drop and environmental conditions fluctuate, creating survival challenges for that of natural grass. The use of synthetic grass in the cold seasons such as winter can save an impressive amount of money due to its countless benefits. Unlike natural grass, synthetic turf can survive on its own and maintain a healthy aesthetic no matter what season it is, regardless of extreme weather conditions and environmental changes. This is by far one of the best aspects of artificial grass in the winter.
Minimal maintenance has been something that can be enjoyed all year long, however, in the winter season, when gardening and mowing seem less appealing than apple cider and chimney fires, it can be especially appreciated. With the increase in precipitation, frost, and even snow, lawnmowers can get ruined. So how do you maintain a lawn and tame it from becoming a jungle in the winter months? Look to an artificial turf lawn that does not grow or become unruly. The appearance of a synthetic grass lawn is very realistic, with different pile heights and textures to choose from. Without needing watering, mowing, weeding, fertilizing, or other meticulous lawn care required by a real lawn, synthetic grass saves you time, allowing you to focus on other winter activities and the holiday season. With a cut on maintenance, there is also the obvious cut on maintenance costs, which can be exceptionally helpful during the winter and holiday season. Money that adds up for water and electricity can now be put towards stuffing those extra stockings, or paying for that costly holiday ham.
With the winter season in full effect, regular grass lawns undergo browning, becoming brittle with the cold. This eventually leads to the dying out of different parts of a regular grass lawn, causing it to look patchy, dead, and barren in the winter months. Synthetic turf lawns, on the other hand, do not turn brown, nor do they become brittle. Instead they maintain their soft touch, even when coming into contact with rain or snow. With such contact, synthetic grass’ drainage system manually drains liquids in all directions. This saves a lot of money during the cold season. With the artificial grass backing highly permeated, snow melts down, and rain can easily drain through without any hassle. Thus, your turf does not collect water or stay soggy in the winter season. Artificial turf also has an advantage over real grass because of its patented infill layer. This layer helps to slow the freezing process, which helps in extreme cold conditions. Also, the infill granules can be of help in windier winter conditions, helping to keep the synthetic turf surface solid, eliminating any concern that it could lift in any areas with the wind. Synthetic grass’ low maintenance and impressive drainage system make it the ideal money saving lawn option for the winter time.
