All About Landscaping with Artificial Lawn

When a prospective new customer contacts Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping to ask about our artificial turf, we often hear a similar set of questions. To assist in deciding whether or not artificial landscaping would be a good fit for you and your lifestyle, we have covered some of our FAQs below.

What are the different types of artificial grass and how do they differ?

Because there are many various types of artificial turf, the skilled team at Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping will ask you an array of questions to help you choose the perfect product. We’ll ask you about the style you desire, the amount of foot activity in the intended installation area, and details about the area where you want grass installed.

Sports Turf – This type of artificial grass is specifically created for use on athletic fields. Its primary goal is safety, but it also boasts excellent durability and performance.

Golf Turf – Just as you might expect, this artificial turf type is designed for use on golf courses. Its short style makes it look beautifully manicured, and golfers love that they can have a consistent and predictable experience every time they tee off.

Landscaping Turf – Artificial grass is designed for softness, aesthetic appeal, and durability, making it excellent for commercial and residential landscaping alike.

Pet-Friendly Turf – This kind of turf is durable and easy to clean, making it preferred among those with pets.

How is artificial grass made?

Artificial grass has two main characteristics: synthetic grass blades connected to a fabric backing. The manufacturing process begins with white premium quality plastic pellets (polyethylene, nylon, or polypropylene). This plastic is melted, colored green, and formed into long, natural-looking blades of grass. The strands are then stretched for the purpose of strengthening before they are placed onto a spool and transformed into a yarn of sorts. Finally, they are sewn onto an enormous sheet of polyurethane or latex fabric using specially-designed equipment.

After looping the yarn through the cloth, another piece of machinery cuts the loop ends to release the yarn and create a lifelike, grass-like tip, giving artificial turf a surprisingly genuine appearance. The next step is to apply an adhesive to the back of the fabric, which provides strength and stops the blades from loosening. Other innovative techniques are done to reinforce the product and make it highly water permeable. When the synthetic turf is finished, it is rolled up and sent to landscaping companies.

Where can I use artificial grass?

One of the major benefits of synthetic grass is its adaptability. You may be accustomed to seeing artificial grass outdoors, but many people are unaware that indoor artificial turf can also be used to liven up interior spaces. When selecting synthetic grass in Adelanto, consider the beautiful impact that Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping can have on:

Garden Walkways

Sports Fields

Commercial Landscaping

Putting Greens

Pet Areas

Pool Surroundings

Rooftop Gardens

Lawns

Terraces, Balconies, and Other Unique Areas

What does an artificial grass care routine involve?

Maintaining artificial turf is significantly simpler compared to the typical upkeep associated with traditional lawns. The convenience of maintenance stands out as a primary reason our customers ultimately choose Adelanto synthetic turf. Nevertheless, for optimal durability and aesthetic appeal, we suggest seeking guidance from your landscaping specialist at Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping to create a maintenance plan tailored to your lifestyle, requirements, and your particular artificial grass product. Your knowledgeable landscaper is likely to propose a customized combination of the following:

Pet Waste Stains – For urine stains on turf, simply use cold water to rinse. If there is solid waste present, make sure it is fully dried before removing.

Preventive Care – For precautionary reasons, you should never light fireworks or smoke on your artificial lawn. Never allow potentially damaging or staining liquids near your lawn, and keep strong chemicals away as well.

Routine Maintenance – On a weekly or monthly basis (depending upon weather conditions, pets or lack thereof, foot traffic, and other individual factors), remove debris like leaves or twigs from your lawn or landscaping. Use water to rinse the grass, then prevent matting and make the grass fibers stand upright by cross brushing high-traffic areas. These measures will help safeguard your investment and keep your artificial lawn looking attractive.

Stubborn Stains – If you come across a stubborn stain, such as ink, motor oil, or similar dark substance, try removing it using mineral spirits. Rinsing should always be your final step.

Sticky Stains – Gum, tree sap, and other sticky substances can be frozen with refrigerant or dry ice. Scrape the material off with as much care as possible after it has hardened.

Mild Stains – To prevent stains from setting in, act quickly. Start by blotting up the spill with a towel or other absorbent material, then use mild detergent and water to rinse the area. If the stain is stubborn or starting to set in, remove it with a 3% ammonia solution before carefully rinsing it with water.

Why do homeowners and business owners choose artificial grass over real grass?

Synthetic grass is popular among our landscaping customers for a multitude of reasons. Customers appreciate that it is:

Pet-Friendly – Synthetic grass might be an excellent alternative to consider if your pet suffers from allergy symptoms such as sneezing, eye irritation, itching, or scratching. Artificial grass for pets is an appealing option for pet owners who prioritize cleanliness because you can be certain your dog will never return to your door covered in mud. Pets have access to a urine-free, easy-to-clean outside play space, and pet owners never have to worry about their beloved pet(s) coming into contact with harsh or dangerous pesticides, fertilizers, weed control products, or other outdoor chemicals.

Year-Round Greenery – Synthetic grass in Adelanto is appealing because it stays beautifully green throughout the seasons, while the real grass around you begins to die – often in unsightly patches. When you have the greenest and loveliest lawn in town, you will be the envy of all your neighbors.

Allergen-Free – Dogs and people with allergy issues will enjoy a noticeable reduction in allergy symptoms as they spend worry-free time outdoors.

Cost Savings – You will avoid spending money on landscaping, mowing and related supplies (gasoline, etc), and more when you opt for artificial turf. Although the initial expense may deter some homeowners, many customers believe that the cost is actually fairly affordable when years (or even decades) of enjoyment are considered.

Eco-Friendly – Your artificial lawn will be a great addition to your green efforts because you’ll be able to avoid the pollution associated with lawn mower use, steer clear of harsh fertilizers and weed control chemicals, and conserve water.

Durability – Artificial grass is engineered to withstand foot traffic and all types of weather conditions – even snow, rain, and wind. Its non-slip surface is incredibly fade-resistant and wear-resistant, and it’s even made with UV protection.

Longevity – With proper installation by the pros at Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping, a high-quality product like the ones we carry, and a carefully crafted maintenance routine, you can enjoy your synthetic lawn for 15, 20, or even 25 years! Simply ask your landscaping professional for assistance in developing a maintenance schedule.

Low-Maintenance – Weed control, mowing, manicuring, watering, and other maintenance are all required for live grass. Simply spot clean fake grass as needed, rinse and brush on a regular basis, and remove pet waste as soon as possible. If you follow a thorough artificial turf maintenance schedule, you should be able to enjoy your investment for 15 to 25 years.

Should I be worried about drainage when I choose artificial grass?

The use of high-quality materials and modern design processes in the artificial grass manufacturing process is the main way producers manage drainage challenges. We find that many homes and commercial properties don’t need any special drainage system in place to enjoy adequate drainage with artificial grass. If our landscapers discover a drainage problem on your site, we will remedy it with appropriate leveling or another drainage solution before placing your artificial turf.

How does artificial grass look and feel?

Artificial grass today is designed to be as similar to nature as can be. It has a natural underfoot feel, soft textures, and a varied range of green colors.

How is synthetic turf installed?

You want your artificial lawn to be long-lasting and beautiful, which is why this complicated task should only be managed by experts. The amazing Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping crew is here to take care of every detail, so you can relax as you eagerly await your stunning new lawn.

We take the following steps when installing artificial grass:

  1. To prepare the base, use a shovel to remove any obstacles or vegetation.
  2. Install the weed barrier over the aggregate base, overlap seams, and use nails or anchors to secure it for the purposes of drainage and weed prevention.
  3. Add gravel, crushed stone, or another aggregate to shape the surface. Rake, level, and compact the material.
  4. Place the synthetic grass into position, trim if necessary, and seam edges carefully when installing more than one roll.
  5. Pull the artificial grass taut before driving landscaping anchors or nails along the perimeter.
  6. Spread infill material (such as silica sand) around the surface of the grass, then brush to weigh the material down and avoid matting.

Is artificial grass a safe surface?

Artificial grass is, overall, a soft surface to land on. When used on athletic fields or playgrounds, our usual recommendation involves the installation of shock-absorbent padding. Our staff installs this padding prior to laying the grass, ensuring that you have a shock-absorbent surface that reduces the likelihood of injury.
