Artificial Grass Can Keep Your House Cleaner

There are many great reasons for installing artificial turf. It keeps your lawn gorgeously green all year, and you never have to fertilize, use pesticides, or worry about how much water your yard is getting. One reason you might not have considered, though, is this: artificial grass keeps your house cleaner.

Pets are wonderful companions, but they make a mess.
In a traditional yard, furry friends dig, roll, and find many other ways to coat themselves with dirt and debris, which they then track into your home. When the grass is artificial, there’s no mud to roll in or track, which means no muddy paw prints on the floors and carpets. You’ll also have to bathe your pets less frequently, which is a win all the way around

Things you don’t even think about come in on your shoes.
Have you ever considered all that happens in your yard? Animals leave waste, grass produces pollen, rain makes mud, grass clippings stay behind, no matter how much you try to contain them, and your yard produces its own special dust. You might not even see of this, but it sticks to your shoes every time you’re out enjoying the lawn and comes right in to settle in your carpet and those little grooves in your hardwood and tile. With artificial turf, this is not an issue. Rain and urine seep right through and are absorbed into the earth, pollen doesn’t happen, and there’s no mud, dust, or clippings to make a mess.

You may even have been tracking in toxins.
With a live lawn come chemicals. It’s just the way it is! To keep the yard looking its best we fertilize and spray for bugs, and where do all those chemicals go? Some sink into the earth, which isn’t great for the environment. Some come into our homes on our shoes or on our pets. Is a beautiful lawn worth exposing your family to dangerous toxins? What about your pets, who also tend to lick their feet? When you have artificial grass, there’s no need to put down any poison, so there’s no chance it’s getting tracked into your home. Not only that, but you still get to have a lovely green yard, with virtually no maintenance required.

With artificial turf, you eliminate a world of worry, and make your home and yard cleaner, safer, and more beautiful. At Tough Turf, we design, manufacture, install and maintain synthetic turf and grass, with options available for any application and every budget.

Turf And Pets Are A Match Made In Heaven

Our pets love to play in the yard, but it’s not always the best thing for them. In some ways, a yard can be a dangerous place for a pet. By the same token, pets cause a world of trouble for your yard. How do we give our companion animals the free range time they crave, while side-stepping the less desirable outcomes that can result from pets on the grass? The easy answer? Artificial turf.

No more muddy paws.
With artificial turf, rain soaks right through, so there’s no mud to step- or roll- in. This means cleaner floors for you, and fewer baths for your pets.

Holes and brown spots are a thing of the past.
Dogs and cats love to dig, but not in artificial turf because it’s sturdy and dig-proof for even the most determined diggers. And those unsightly brown spots where the grass has died because of pets using it as a restroom? Those are no longer a problem with artificial grass. Urine soaks straight through to be absorbed by the earth, and solid waste is easy to remove, with just a scoop and a spray of the hose.

A beautiful, healthy, clean play space is always the reality.
Installing artificial turf means your pets always have a lovely, fluffy lawn in which to play. Not only that, but your outdoor time can be recreational again. With no need for mowing, fertilizing, or fighting bugs and weeds, you have much more time for backyard romps and games of fetch.

Your pets’ health is no longer in jeopardy.
With a traditional yard, there are always chemicals in the grass. Pesticides, weed killer, and fertilizer can all be hazardous, even if you try to use the least harmful versions on the market. It’s a worry for pet owners, who have to strike the balance between a healthy lawn and a healthy pet. With artificial turf, you don’t have to choose between the two. Foregoing the chemicals means you can allow your pets to play in the backyard to their hearts’ content, with no worries that they’ll track in toxins or get sick.

Happy, healthy pets, playing in a beautiful green yard that requires very little maintenance from you. What more could you want? At Tough Turf, we design, manufacture, install and maintain synthetic turf and grass, with options available for any application and every budget.

Safety Tips for Artificial Grass and Fire pits

There’s nothing quite like a fire pit on a winter night. It’s a cozy spot for friends to gather, talking, laughing, and maybe roasting some marshmallows. On the other hand, a fire pit also invites quiet contemplation, sitting alone and fire gazing. If you have artificial turf, you can certainly have a fire pit, and it will look great. There are, however, some safety concerns to consider.

First, the good news: artificial grass is not flammable!
Even if a flaming ember flew from your fire pit and landed on your lawn, it wouldn’t flame up and the fire wouldn’t spread. The bad news? It would melt a spot of your artificial turf, damaging the look of your grass.

The most important thing is that you should not put your fire pit directly onto the artificial turf.
Instead, create a patio either beside or within your yard, using stones or gravel- not wood. The great thing about this is that you can make it large enough to accommodate seating, and it will provide a fire break for the fire pit. This is important, not just for the artificial grass, but for your whole property.

Another great idea is to build a shelter for your extra wood.
A wooden box should do the trick, built near enough to be convenient, yet far enough away for safety.

Of course, some safety tips apply to all fire pits, whether or not you have artificial grass.
For example, a fire pit should not be within 10 feet of any structure, and 25 feet is actually preferable. Be careful not to place it under any low hanging limbs, and keep an eye on kids anytime you’re using it. Having a fire extinguisher on hand is not a bad idea, either.

Artificial turf is a great way to keep your lawn beautiful and green all year long, without wasting water or worrying about fertilizer or pesticides. At Tough Turf, we design, manufacture, install and maintain synthetic turf and grass, with options available for any application and every budget.

Artificial Turf Means Never Having to Say Let’s Winterize

Few things are a bigger source of pride for a homeowner than a beautiful green lawn. Of course, having a yard that’s the envy of the block and the pride of the neighborhood association takes work. You’ve got to mow, and weed, test the soil and fertilize, and continually fight one pest or another intent on taking down your pride and joy. Winterizing? That’s just one more in a long list of yard chores necessary to keep your lawn beautiful.

Just when you’d rather be snuggled inside with your loved ones, perhaps sipping hot chocolate, yard work rears its ugly head again. You look out at the browning grass and realize you’re not just going to have to mow again, but you’re also going to have to pull weeds and fertilize in anticipation of spring. Not only that, but the yard has probably become muddy, with bare patches that you’ll need to fix before the muck gets out of hand. Is there any way around all of this?

Of course, there is! Artificial turf is the perfect way to keep your yard green and gorgeous all year long, without mowing or wasting water, and with no pesticides or fertilizer. Not only can you spend your winter doing the things you want to do instead of dealing with the yard, but you’ll save time, money, and effort because of all the maintenance you won’t be doing. Who knows? You could even get a chance this winter to work on your golf game. In fact, while you’re having artificial turf installed, why not set aside part of that beautiful green yard for a practice putting green? By the time spring rolls around, you’ll practically be a pro.

Here’s another thing about artificial grass: it’s environmentally friendly. You won’t be creating emissions running electric or gas yard equipment because a little sweep with the broom is all you’ll need to keep your yard looking great. You’ll also avoid toxic chemicals, like fertilizer and pesticide, which can be dangerous for your kids and pets, and which can also contaminate runoff water systems.

At Tough Turf, we design, manufacture, install and maintain synthetic turf and grass, with options available for any application and every budget.
