One of the best things you can expect from replacing your natural grass with synthetic grass is the return on investment. Synthetic turf can easily pay for itself in a short time period when you consider the savings you’ll spend on water, supplies, and equipment needed for maintenance on natural grass.
Regardless of what application you’ve chosen – an athletic field, a dog run, or commercial landscaping – you will continue to enjoy the looks and function of your turf, long after you’ve recouped your investment. But even the best things in life don’t last forever, so when will you need to replace your synthetic turf? Part of that will depend on how your synthetic turf was installed, the quality and type of turf installed, and how it is being used.
With professional installation, synthetic turf could surpass standard manufacturer’s warranties, and last up to 20 years of maintenance-free life depending on the volume of traffic on your lawn.
Taking simple steps to prolong your lawn’s lifespan will help prolong the life of your lawn too.
- Rinsing your grass periodically removes seasonal dust, and washes away spills and pet urine.
- Picking up and rinsing off pet droppings (or from other visitors such as birds).
- Raking or sweeping with a broom or leaf blower to remove seasonal debris.
- Using a stiff broom to re-fluff high traffic areas.
It may be time to replace your synthetic turf if …
