4 Ways Installing Artificial Grass At Your Commercial Property Helps The Environment

Does artificial grass really help our environment?

Indeed, it does. In multiple ways, actually, because “environment” has multiple meanings.

What usually comes to mind first is our own Mother Earth – the biosphere we all share and need to protect as a community. And then there’s your family’s home environment. The ways in which artificial grass promotes broad-scale health, safety, and sustainability also directly benefit your family and pets.

1. No Harmful Ingredients

High-quality synthetic turf such as the wide variety of products we offer at Pacific Grass & Turf are made from non-toxic materials. They are 100% allergen-free as well. Everyone (including pets) can enjoy the grass “up close and personal” without endangering their health. In fact, we have specialized products that make play environments physically safer for kids, too.

2. No Harmful Outputs

Natural grass demands an array of potentially poisonous chemicals to help it grow and to fend off pests and disease. Studies have shown that as much as 60% of chemicals applied to lawns run off into the environment. There, they can pose deadly dangers to fish, wildlife, plants, and even our drinking water supply.

Artificial grass starts out in perfect health and remains that way for years, without so much as a single chemical additive.

Synthetic turf has a tiny carbon footprint, too. Since you never have to mow or use other gas-fired tools to maintain it, you’re no longer spewing tons of CO2 and other pollutants into the air. That’s a big deal.  Just a single hour of mowing produces greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to a 100-mile drive in the average car. (Those chemicals you spray onto real grass get into the air, too, as well as the groundwater.)

3. Water Conservation

We all know that artificial grass can save thousands of gallons of water each year, because it never needs watering. But many people don’t realize that faux grass drains rainwater and ambient water far more efficiently than natural grass. Instead of allowing most of the water to run off (along with those deadly chemicals), your synthetic grass lawn’s drainage system directs moisture into the soil and aquifers where it is needed to sustain life.

4. Green Is Cool

That’s one of the reasons urban trees and gardens are so important. Plants refresh the air we breathe by giving off oxygen. But they also cool the air, offsetting the unnatural heat produced by hard surfaces. When you install artificial grass to cover or replace hard surfaces – rooftops, balconies and patios, walkways, even driveways – your artificial grass also provides valuable environmental cooling. (Bonus: your backyard will be more comfortable and inviting, too.)
