A well maintained and manicured landscape on your commercial property creates an inviting aesthetic that welcomes your clients to your place of business. When maintained properly, natural grass can be a beautiful thing and grass can cover large outdoor areas easily, but sometimes heavy foot traffic or goals to reduce consumption at your commercial property can turn that beauty into more of a hassle. You can instead get the same look with fake grass with much less trouble.
7 Benefits of Fake Grass for Commercial Properties
1. No mowing necessary
Fake grass, or artificial turf, does not grow, therefore it does not need to be mowed. Eliminating mowing from your weekly or bi-weekly maintenance expenses will save your business money as well as reduce the use of fossil fuel.
With fake grass you do not have to maintain a schedule of fertilizing or uses pesticides to keep your grass area healthy. This reduces harmful runoff into lakes, rivers, etc, that house wildlife or into drinking water sources.
3. No watering
There is no need to water fake grass. Since there is no need to water fake grass, your company will reduce its water consumption. This will save your company money and save our precious water source. This is especially important in desert and drought prone areas.
4. Little if any weeds
When fake grass or artificial turf is professionally installed by expert turf installers like Golf Greens Texas, a weed barrier is laid down during the installation process. The weedbarrier prevents weeds from going up through the turf. This also allows for the well manicured landscape that provides a beautiful an welcoming aesthetic outside your commercial property with minimal maintenance required.
Properly installed fake grass drains well and does not flood. And unlike with real grass, fake grass doesn’t get muddy during a rain shower. Patrons of your establishment do not have to worry about stepping in muddy puddles outside of your business and you don’t have to worry about them tracking in mud or grass blades.
6. Maintains manicured look year round
No matter what season or what the weather has been like, fake grass remains perfectly green all year long. It always looks freshly cut, providing a beautiful landscape for your commercial property.
7. Resists wear and tear from foot traffic
Fake grass has a lifetime expectancy to outlive its 15 year warranty. It is sturdy and heavy duty. With heavy foot traffic you will not get the bare spots that appear in real grass from being frequently trampled on.
