Most traditional swimming pool landscapes are made out of brick and concrete. These materials are heavy, expensive and can be difficult to install. Sometimes owners opt for grass, but we’re here to show you a better option!
To really take your pool look (and maintenance work) to the next level, install synthetic grass around it. This is a great way to add value to your home and make it more attractive while making maintenance even easier.
Here is the list of benefits of having artificial grass around your pool :
1. Easy Installation
Installing synthetic grass around your pool is a lot easier than installing brick or concrete.
Synthetic turf is made from polyethylene fibers which are woven together into a matting that resembles natural grass. It is then glued down to a backing that can be installed on top of concrete or natural grass. So you can easily cut it to fit any area of your pool landscape that you want to cover with the synthetic turf. Your turf, of course, will be pre-designed at our Synthetic Turf facility prior to the installation at the pool.
When compared to other alternatives like sod or concrete pavers, it is a cheap and easy way to give your home a new look or pretty up your backyard. The lawn will look great and add value to your home in no time!
2. Safe pool deck for kids
The most important reason why you should install synthetic grass around your pool is safety. Children and pets can be very playful, and it’s easy for them to fall into the pool if they run too close to the edge.
Concrete or smooth brick around the pool often gets really slippery – that could lead to serious injuries for your kids. As children get in and out of the pool, artificial turf will get wet, but it won’t be as slick. You won’t have to worry about them running around the deck and hurting themselves. This is especially important if you have small children at home.
The artificial grass will prevent them from falling in by reducing the chance of slipping or tripping. The lawn will also provide a soft landing spot for anyone who falls by other means, making it safer than concrete or brick decking.
3. Elegant Appearance – Customizable
The synthetic turf can be installed in any pattern you like, either in squares or circles or even in a random pattern if you are looking for something different. Synthetic turf is available in many different styles and colors, so you can find one that matches your existing landscape perfectly. You can even get it in different heights so it looks more realistic. The turf comes in lengths of 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15 feet long by 1 foot wide.
The grass around your pool will not only make it safer but also add value to your home. This is a great way to upgrade the look of your house without spending too much money. It will make your home more attractive and give it a unique look that you can’t get with traditional materials.
4. Durable and long-lasting
Synthetic grass is durable and can last for many years without any problems. It will not rot or mold, so you don’t have to worry about repairs or water retention. It is also easy to maintain. You can simply hose down the grass with water and mild soap to clean it.
If you have kids or pets, you can be sure that they won’t ruin your lawn by playing on it. Synthetic grass is durable and can withstand the abuse of high foot traffic and pet activities without any damage to the grass.
There is a low chance of damage caused by weather conditions or UV rays from the sun. Artificial grass looks great all year round! You can use artificial turf in any part of your yard, even if you live in an area where there are harsh winters because it does not need any special care during those months when other plants would die off due to cold weather conditions.
Synthetic grass is an eco-friendly option in comparison to natural grass. This might sound counterintuitive, but the reasoning is sound.
Natural grass often uses pesticides or harmful fertilizers regularly which pollute our air as well as our water supply if they are washed away by rains into lakes, rivers, streams, etc. These are basically required for maintenance as diseases, pests, and fungi growth can easily ruin your hard-earned beautiful lawn.
On the other side, artificial turf does not require these types of chemicals which makes it better for the environment.
Synthetic grass is normally made of recycled plastic and rubber which are both non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It is a good solution for people who are concerned about the environment and the use of chemicals in their lawns.
5. Maintenance-free landscape
The grass around your pool will not require any special care or watering. You can just leave it alone and enjoy the benefits of having a beautiful lawn around your pool. It will not need to be mowed or trimmed, so you won’t have to spend time on maintenance. Think how much a good quality lawn mower costs? When comparing costs, you’ll soon see that the cost of maintaining a natural lawn can spiral out of control.
A synthetic turf is a great option if you value your time and find maintenance cumbersome. One thing to remember when installing artificial grass around your pool is that you want to make sure there are no gaps between the grass and the pool decking to avoid water and debris getting trapped under the grass.
Synthetic grass is easy to clean and maintain because it doesn’t get dirty easily as natural grass does. You don’t have to worry about stains from dirt, mud, or other debris that could ruin the look of your lawn if they are left unattended for too long. The artificial turf is also stain-resistant and mold-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after pets who might urinate on the lawn while playing in the yard with their owners outside of the pool area.
Since there is no need for fertilizers or pesticides, there are no recurring costs related to them either. You can save money on these expenses and enjoy a great-looking lawn without worrying about killing insects or other pests in your lawn with harmful chemicals.
