All About Landscaping with Artificial Lawn

When a potential new customer calls Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping to inquire about our artificial turf, we frequently receive the same set of questions. We have covered some of our FAQs below to help you decide whether or not artificial turf is an appropriate choice for you and your lifestyle.

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

Our landscaping customers love synthetic grass for a variety of reasons. Customers love that it is:

Year-Round Greenery – Synthetic grass in Phelan is appealing because it stays beautifully green throughout the seasons, while the real grass around you begins to die – often in unsightly patches. Your neighbors and friends will envy your lush, evergreen lawn.

Eco-Friendly – Your artificial lawn will let you avoid the pollution caused by lawn mowers, contribute to water conservation, and avoid harsh fertilizers and weed control chemicals, which means it will be an excellent addition to your green efforts.

Longevity – When Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping’s experts complete the professional installation of our top-of-the-line products and you implement our long-term maintenance guidelines, you’ll be able to thoroughly enjoy your synthetic lawn for up to 25 years! Simply ask your skilled landscaper any questions you have concerning the complete upkeep routine.

Low-Maintenance – Live grass demands far more frequent maintenance, such as mowing, weed control, manicuring, watering, and other tasks. Simply spot clean fake grass as needed, rinse and brush on a regular basis, and remove pet waste as soon as possible. With a thorough artificial turf maintenance routine, your investment should pay off for 15 to 25 years!

Durability – Artificial grass is designed to endure foot traffic as well as all kinds of weather, including wind, rain, and snow. It is UV-resistant and therefore fade-resistant, plus it is highly wear-resistant and non-slip.

Pet-Friendly – Synthetic turf is ideal for pets who suffer from allergies that cause them to scratch and itch, suffer from eye irritation, or sneeze. Many pet owners adore artificial grass for pets because it keeps their dogs cleaner when they are not exposed to 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.

Allergen-Free – Dogs and humans with allergies will significantly reduce their allergy symptoms (and related discomfort) as they relax outside without fear of a flare-up.

Cost Savings – When you opt for an artificial lawn instead of a traditional one, you can cut costs on mowing and associated expenses (such as gasoline), water, landscaping, and beyond. The up-front cost might deter some people, but when they consider the years (or decades!) of enjoyment ahead, many customers find the price to be quite reasonable.

How is artificial grass made?

Artificial turf is made up of two main components: strands of “grass” and a backing fabric to which the “blades” are bonded. The manufacturing process begins with white premium quality plastic pellets (polyethylene, nylon, or polypropylene). The pellets are melted, tinted green, and fashioned into long, realistic-looking blades of grass. These grass strands are stretched, spooled, and spun into yarn before being sewed into a massive sheet of latex or polyurethane cloth using special machinery.

After the yarn is looped through the fabric, another machine releases the yarn by cutting the ends of the loops, giving the product a grass-like tip that lends a shockingly realistic quality. The fabric backing is then covered with an adhesive to keep the blades in place and guarantee strength. Other proprietary steps are taken to further strengthen the product and to make it highly permeable to water. When the synthetic turf is finished, it is rolled up and sent to landscaping companies.

Is artificial grass a safe surface?

Overall, artificial grass offers a soft landing surface. When utilized on sporting fields or playgrounds, we usually recommend installing 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.

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

Many different varieties of artificial turf exist, so the expert team at Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping will help you choose the right product by asking you a series of questions. We’ll ask you about the area where you want grass installed, the look you prefer, and the amount of foot traffic the area experiences.

Sports Turf – This type of artificial grass is specifically created for use on athletic fields. It prioritizes performance and durability, but its primary goal is safety.

Pet-Friendly Turf – Because it is durable and simple to clean, this type of turf is preferred among those with pets.

Landscaping Turf – This kind of artificial grass prioritizes aesthetics, durability, and softness, so it is a great choice for residential or commercial landscapes.

Golf Turf – As the name suggests, this type of artificial turf is intended for use on golf courses. It is short for a well-manicured look, and it helps golfers have a more predictable and dependable experience each and every time.

What does an artificial grass care routine involve?

Caring for artificial turf is much easier than the maintenance routine you’re probably accustomed to with your traditional lawn. Ease of care is one of the primary reasons our clients prefer Phelan synthetic turf. However, for optimal lifespan and attractiveness, we recommend meeting with a landscaping specialist at Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping to develop a maintenance plan that is tailored to your specific artificial grass product, your lifestyle, and your needs. Your knowledgeable landscaper is likely to propose a customized combination of the following:

Routine Maintenance – Remove debris such as leaves or twigs from your lawn or landscaping on a weekly or monthly basis (depending on factors like pets or lack thereof, weather conditions, foot traffic, and other considerations). After rinsing, cross brush any high-traffic areas to keep the fibers upright and prevent matting. These measures will help safeguard your investment and keep your artificial lawn looking attractive.

Mild Stains – Act soon to stop stains from setting in. Begin by blotting the spill with a towel or another absorbent material, then rinse the area with mild soap and water. Remove difficult stains that are starting to set in with a 3% ammonia solution, then rinse thoroughly with water.

Sticky Stains – Refrigerant or dry ice can be used to freeze tree sap, gum, or other sticky substances. Scrape the material off with as much care as possible after it has hardened.

Stubborn Stains – For tough stains like motor oil, ink, or other difficult, dark substances, use mineral spirits to attempt removal. Be sure to rinse as a final step.

Preventive Care – You should avoid smoking or lighting fireworks on your artificial grass for safety reasons. Strong chemicals and other possibly damaging or staining liquids should also be kept away from your synthetic lawn.

Pet Waste Stains – If you have a urine stain on your turf, rinse it with cold water. If there is solid waste, ensure it is completely dry prior to removal.

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

The utilization of high-quality materials and advanced construction techniques in the artificial grass manufacturing process is the primary way manufacturers use design to address concerns related to drainage. In numerous commercial and residential properties, there is often no necessity for a dedicated drainage system as artificial grass inherently ensures sufficient drainage. In cases where our landscapers identify potential drainage issues in specific areas of your property, we will proactively tackle these concerns by implementing proper leveling or other effective drainage solutions before proceeding with the installation of your artificial turf.

Where can I use artificial grass?

One of the numerous advantages of synthetic grass is its versatility. You are likely aware that fake grass can be utilized outside, but you may be surprised to learn that indoor artificial turf can be used to brighten up indoor living areas.

How does artificial grass look and feel?

Today’s artificial grass is made to mimic nature as closely as possible. It features a natural underfoot feel, diverse green hues, and a soft texture.

How is synthetic turf installed?

Artificial grass installation is an elaborate job that should only be done by specialists if you want aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting results. Daniel’s Affordable Landscaping’s outstanding crew will manage every step of the process, allowing you to rest and eagerly await your dazzling new lawn.

We take the following steps when installing artificial grass:

  1. Using a shovel, clear the ground and prepare the base by removing plants and obstructions.
  2. A weed barrier is laid on top of the aggregate base, with seams overlapped and secured with nails or anchors for drainage and weed protection.
  3. An aggregate (such as crushed stone or gravel) is installed to shape the surface. It is then raked, smoothed, and compacted.
  4. Position the artificial grass into place, trim as needed, and seam the edges neatly.
  5. Pull the sheet of grass taut, then drive nails or landscaping anchors into various locations around the perimeter.
  6. Spread and brush infill material (like silica sand) across the grass surface to prevent matting and weigh the material down.
