How to Make the Most of Artificial Turf in the Summer

Artificial Turf Cools Down Quickly

Are you worried about it getting too hot out with these intense heat waves we’ve been experiencing? Not to worry. You can still hang out on your synthetic turf enjoyably as it doesn’t retain heat! Synthetic turf isn’t like asphalt or other ground coverings that take much longer to cool after being heated by the sun. You will quickly get relief from the sun by a cloud passing over or a splash of water cooling the surface down. It’s the perfect surface to put the kiddie pool or water table on as the water drains right through. Say goodbye to those slippery, muddy puddles surrounding the kid’s play areas. 

Artificial Turf is Low Maintenance 

This is no doubt one of the biggest reasons we see people make the switch, and stick with synthetic turf backyards for all of their future homes. We love seeing how happy our clients are year after year with their decision to invest in a space they will use and love year round. We often hear from our clients, how many neighbours stop to inquire about their front yard because they love the appearance and how easy it looks! We see this come to fruition when we look at how many houses we’ve transformed on a given street, our projects are always in little clusters because of this “neighbour effect”. Once one house has the beautiful and natural looking curb appeal, it’s easy to see why they made the switch to synthetic turf. Leave behind the endless yard work Spring through Fall!

Spend More Time Enjoying Your Synthetic Lawn Than Watering It

Having your own personal backyard oasis is something we all dream of…but taking care of it? Maybe some of us could go without the hours of mowing, or tinkering with irrigation that never seems to reach evenly. Through the water saved from an artificial turf yard, you are helping the planet and conserving approximately 200,000 litres of water each year. 

Relax with Heat Resistant Artificial Turf

What better way to enjoy your new synthetic turf backyard this summer than to host a bbq! Your friends and family have probably been wondering what the fuss is all about, and this is the perfect way to show them first hand. Let them feel how soft the artificial turf is, and how great it looks surrounded by your herb garden and new patio set! No need to worry about grilling near turf. The BBQ is safe and synthetic turf makes for a great place for the kids to play while you get dinner ready. Set out some yard games (our favourites are life-size Jenga and Ladder Golf) and enjoy! 

We hope you spend your summer enjoying the beautiful new space you’ve been working so hard to create. If you still haven’t made the switch, contact us for your free sample to see what synthetic turf will look like in your space
