Artificial turf, a surface made up of synthetic fibers made to look like real grass, is most often used in sporting applications. However, artificial turf is starting to show up in commercial applications sites as well.

In fact, synthetic grass in landscaping and recreation is growing 10%-15% a year in the U.S. It’s not hard to see why, given this turf’s unique makeup and aesthetically pleasing look. Here are several reasons why your commercial property can benefit from this unique type of ground cover.

Installing Artificial Turf on Commercial Sites Yields Many Benefits

Low Maintenance

Having a regular lawn around your commercial property can be quite taxing considering the time and hard work that goes into maintaining it. You can avoid all the hard work simply by having artificial turf installed around your property.

With this artificial surface, you never have to worry about applying fertilizer, mowing, or wasting a lot of water during the summer. You still need to do a bit of maintenance to ensure your turf holds up and looks vibrant for years to come, but nowhere near as much as a real lawn requires.

How often you clean this turf depends on your unique situation and area. For example, you may have a lot of trees around the property that drop leaves or there may be pets near the area. Artificial turf can be be cleaned as often as needed to get rid of dust, dirt, leaves, and other debris. Cleaning can be achieved with a simple lawn rake or leaf blower.

Long-Lasting

Standard grass around properties may not hold up throughout the years, usually because of the weather. Fortunately, synthetic turf is designed to last for decades, due to its virtually maintenance free requirements. The condition of your turf generally depends on the amount of traffic it gets. If you have a commercial property with plenty of sidewalks, chances are the turf’s aesthetics will hold up for a long time.

Easy to Install

If you’ve decided that artificial turf is right for your company’s needs, you can hire companies to install it for you. They’ll bring out all the materials, lay down a weed suppressing membrane, if required smooth over the surface, and align the turf so that it fits your property’s contours perfectly.

If you are looking for a virtually maintenance-free lawn that always looks great, consider having artificial turf installed around your property. Companies can do this quickly and achieve professional results that can help improve their overall brand and identity. You then no longer have to worry about hiring landscaping companies or wasting a lot of water, something that is critical during the dry summer months.
