More Floridians are Switching to Artificial Grass

As Floridians, we love our lawns. But keeping them looking good can be a lot of work, especially during the summertime. Many homeowners are choosing to switch to synthetic turf because it is low-maintenance and looks great year-round. If you're considering making the switch, here are some reasons why so many other Floridians have done the same.

The Grass is Always Greener with DelaTurf


Artificial Lawns are Essentially Maintenance Free

One of the best things about synthetic grass is that it doesn't require any upkeep. You don't have to buy fertilizer, de-weed it, or use your lawnmower. All you need to do is sweep it clean every now and then, clear debris and hose it down to keep your artificial grass blades fresh.

In contrast, a real grass lawn needs a lot of care. You have to mow it, water it, and fertilize it regularly. Additionally, natural grass requires significant pesticides and other chemicals to keep your lawn safe to enjoy, especially for pets and children.

Saving the Environment One Turf Lawn At A Time

Artificial grass is also much more environmentally friendly than real grass. All of those fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides you use on your lawn each year runoff and leach into our waterways, creating huge environmental problems.

Unlike natural grass, synthetic turf doesn't produce any runoff. It doesn't need pesticides or herbicides, so there's nothing to pollute our waterways. In fact, artificial turf actually helps filter runoff and improve water quality.

Additionally, synthetic grass can help reduce your carbon footprint. According to the EPA, gas-powered lawnmowers and other landscaping equipment account for 5% of all air pollution in the US. By switching to artificial grass, you can reduce your reliance on gas-powered equipment, making your home more environmentally friendly.

Raise Your Property Value and Love Your Outdoor Space

If you're looking to sell your home, or even just looking to improve your home’s appeal, artificial turf installation can significantly increase your property value. A recent study by the National Association of Realtors found that homes with artificial turf sell for an average of $10,000 more than those with natural grass.

That's because a synthetic lawn or a fake turf front yard can be a major selling point for potential buyers. Many people, especially those in urban areas, are looking for low-maintenance yards they can enjoy without all the work. If you have fake grass, your home will stand out from the competition and be much more attractive to buyers.

Additionally, artificial turf installation opens the range of ways you can enjoy your outdoor space tenfold. Have a pet? No problem! With artificial turf, you don't have to worry about them digging holes or leaving patches of dead grass. Have kids? They can play on the lawn without tracking mud into the house. Like golf? Try installing one of our custom backyard putting greens to bring up your short game! And if you're just looking for a place to relax, you can do so without worrying about keeping your new artificial lawn up to date!
