Some of the more recent types of artificial grass no longer require crumb rubber, which can migrate away from areas. Ask about this when having it installed.
Quality Materials and Workmanship
The quality of the materials used will have a direct impact on how long an artificial grass lawn will last. Materials that are durable and well-made will withstand climate change as well as excessive use and wear and tear. The quality of the nylon fibers and mesh used in the construction of the artificial grass will dictate whether or not the blades fade with exposure to the sun or are unable to resist being matted or trampled down.
Another thing to consider when choosing to have artificial grass installed at your property, or when it’s time to replace it, is that the old materials will need to be recycled. Work with an eco-friendly manufacturer that provides options for this so that you are not harming the environment.
Before choosing a brand of artificial turf, it is always a good idea to check the reputation of the manufacturing company. A company that offers a guaranteed warranty of 20 years or more has confidence in the quality of the materials in their product and techniques they use to install it.
The affordability of artificial grass is partly because of its longevity. When the cost of the turf is divided up over the number of years the artificial grass will remain in place, the total amount becomes much easier to fit into the budget. This is also true when you figure in the minimal amount of money that will be needed for adequate maintenance.
