Having artificial grass contributes to your community by helping with water conservation, a reduction in greenhouse gases from the mow and blow activity, and not being a source of allergens. At a household level artificial turf is an investment that pays for itself and allows you more leisure time.
It eliminates virtually all issues with mud, sticks, and twigs being dragged into the house by kids and pets. In addition no more puddles or standing water on your lawn or mud being tracked into your home’s clean floors.
Synthetic grass is an easily maintained with only a leaf blower a brush and possibly a cleaning spray on occasion. It is a cost effective landscape alternative that will virtually eliminate all the inconveniences caused by a real grass lawn.
Synthetic grass features an excellent drainage rate of 30+ inches or rain per hour per square yard! Your synthetic grass lawn will not be phased by any rain storm. Standing water, the breeding ground for bugs and mosquitoes won’t be a problem. You can live with a picture perfect lawn all year round!
CLEAN – the compacted base certainly is clean in that there is nothing for the worms and grubs or gophers and other critters to be interested in. The result is no standing water for mosquitoes and animals have no attraction to the area.
Installation of “Clean” Sub-Base
The literal foundation of a high-quality installation is the compacted sub-base that is situated under the entire synthetic grass area. Just a real quick overview of how the base is installed. We dig down about 3” and remove sod and natural soil (we call this demo – short for demolition) and haul off, it’s a lot of hard physical labor.
Once done, we bring in a material technically called “Class 2 Road Base”, the optional material is called DG (decomposed granite) it is compacted to about 95% compaction. And why? It is because if turf were installed on natural soil it would not be installed on a firm surface and it would wrinkle or bubble up.
