Artificial Grass Installation Anoka, MN

Synthetic grass is an artificial type of grass made to look and feel exactly like natural grass. For starters, the fibers are as green as natural grass, and they are between 1 to 2.5 inches long, just like grass. The only difference is that natural grass is alive, so it grows and dies. For grass to grow, it needs food, which comes in form of water and nutrients from fertilizers. Since other plants can also grow on the ground where grass grows, weeding must be done to ensure only grass thrives on the lawn. Weeding can be done by applying herbicides or by manually uprooting the weeds. Since pests can also infest the lawn, pesticides may be needed to get rid of the pests. In addition to that, the lawn must be mowed to maintain the desirable grass length of 1 to 2.5 inches. As you can see, lawn care is time consuming and requires a lot of work. It’s also costly. The worst thing about it is that during the cold season, the grass will die due to snow cover. This means the lawn must be reestablished after winter. With a synthetic turf lawn, no maintenance is needed, and the lawn is weatherproof, so you can always have a great-looking outdoor space throughout the year.

Types of Synthetic Turf Grass

The length of synthetic turf grass fibers range from 1 to 2.5 inches depending on the type of turf product. For instance, there are synthetic turf grass for dogs, artificial sport turf and artificial lawns for homes. All these turf products come with different fiber lengths to suit their unique application. For instance, if you want synthetic turf grass for a golf course, the fibers must be short to allow the ball to roll uninhibited towards the hole. The same applies to turf grass for hockey and soccer stadiums. If you want turf grass installed in your home, the team at Lawn Pros can help you find the best synthetic grass for homes.

The Pros of Artificial Grass Installation Anoka, MN

i) Cost Effective

There are many people who think turf grass is expensive but that is not true. In fact, natural grass is much more costly than artificial grass. While the installation cost of turf grass may be significantly higher than the cost of installing a natural lawn, turf grass has zero maintenance cost. Within just 5 years, the cost of maintaining a natural grass lawn will be equal to the cost of installing synthetic turf. This makes turf grass the cost effective option. Furthermore, natural lawns must be replaced after every couple of years, which further adds to the cost of having a natural grass lawn.

ii) Environmentally Friendly

Using a synthetic material instead of natural grass is great for the environment in a number of ways. For one, natural grass must be mowed regularly to maintain a healthy height. This requires burning of fossil fuel by the mower, which releases greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. Secondly, the material used to make turf lawns is 100% recyclable, which means it’s environmentally sustainable. Thirdly, turf grass does not require chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides to grow. These inputs are known to pollute the environment when rainwater washes away the chemicals into rivers and lakes. Lastly, the chemicals used to maintain a natural lawn are known to cause allergies in both adults and children, so a natural lawn may not necessarily be friendly to kids and pets.

iii) Convenience

Artificial grass does not require any maintenance, which makes it the most convenient option. Imagine an aged property owner trying to push a mowing machine across the lawn to cut grass, or a working single mom applying fertilizer, herbicides or pesticides to the lawn. As you can see, maintaining a natural lawn is labor intensive, so it is inconvenient. The worst thing about it is that if you fail to properly care for the lawn, the grass will overgrow, get discolored or covered with weeds, which will make the entire lawn look unsightly. You can avoid all these hassles by installing an artificial lawn.

iv) Durable

Artificial synthetic turf can last up to two decades. However, there are some people who still have turf lawns that were installed over two decades ago and they look as good as new. It all depends on lawn care and use. All Lawn Pros products come with an 8 year warranty. The long life expectancy of turf grass can be attributed to a special UV-resistance technology that makes the fibers and backing of the material UV resistant. Furthermore, the synthetic fiber is weatherproof, so you will always have a great-looking lawn throughout the year.

Lawn Pros is the go-to company for all your artificial lawn installation needs. In addition to installing synthetic turf lawns, the company also manufactures different types of turf products from resins. This means they have control over the quality of the product. The company has a team of highly trained and experienced installers who can install turf on any type of surface. The team will start by measuring the area to be covered with turf. With this measurement, the team can give you a quote on what it would cost you to procure the material. The price per square foot ranges from $2.50 to $4, depending on the chosen product. Please note that the labor cost is charged separately.
Installation starts with clearing of the area. Any grass, flower, rock, tree stump or loose soil is removed from the area to make room for establishment of the base.

To create the base, crushed rocks are laid all over the surface then compacted and smoothed to create a suitable base for turf installation. The base should be between 2 to 4 inches thick. Once the base is ready, the turf grass is installed. Since the standard width of the turf lawn material is only 15 feet, several pieces may need to be seamed together to create one continuous material. Several pieces of 7 inch noncorrosive spikes are then used to secure the turf lawn along the edges at intervals of around 3 feet. The turf lawn will then be ready for use. If you plan on playing on the lawn, be sure to sprinkle some water on the turf before play begins. Lawn care will only entail removing twigs and blowing away leaves that may fall on the turf.
