The Growing Popularity of Artificial Turf

The Growing Popularity of Artificial Turf

Aug 24 2017

Although artificial turf lawns have been around for a few years, they’re primarily known for being used in the private sector, sports stadiums, theme parks, etc. Lately, artificial turf lawns have been gaining popularity among homeowners more and more. This is especially true for residential use. This is because, when it comes to artificial turf for your home, there are numerous benefits. At home, synthetic grass is used for full lawns, home tennis courts, pet areas and putting greens, for children’s play areas and whole-family recreation spaces. In fact, when it comes to artificial turf, there are many places around the country that set a great example as to why more homeowners are opting for this material for personal use, too. Here are a few of those places:

California Memorial Stadium

While about 22 NFL teams currently use synthetic turf for their home fields, college football has also been following suit. California Memorial Stadium got a serious upgrade in June of 2017, replacing their field of green for some beautiful artificial turf. In an area where drought is a serious ongoing concern, many sports institutions are taking necessary steps toward implementing a sustainable solution with synthetic grass.

This will ensure less water is used, while practically eliminating maintenance altogether. In fact, these are the primary reasons why so many California homeowners are making the switch to artificial turf, as well. Not only do synthetic lawns remain green all year long with no watering or landscaping needed, it also provides level ground that is perfect for backyard football games over the weekend or golf practice on an at home putting green.

Portland Parks & Recreation Areas

Portland, Oregon’s Parks & Recreation oversees all the city’s public parks and fields. As of August 2017, Portland P&R has successfully implemented the installation of synthetic turf in eight public parks. They reason that providing Portlanders with safe alternative grass options allow for better, and more, use of their parks. As many children and adults alike are allergic to grass, these artificial turf parks welcome in those who can’t visit recreation areas with real grass.

Families have enjoyed thousands of hours in these parks, playing games ranging from tennis to soccer. Portlanders also enjoy the fact that synthetic turf suffers little to no damage from pets, which opens the invite for the family pooch to also tag along to the park. Wanting to bring all the enjoyment and fun of park playtime at home, many Portland families are opting for artificial turf installation for their lawns at home. Creating a backyard playground or putting green allows family and friends to get together in a more private setting.

The Sports Dome in Centennial, Colorado

In the awe-inspiring city of Centennial, Colorado lies the coveted Sports Dome which has recently undergone an artificial turf transformation. In July 2017, the Sports Dome installed brand-new synthetic turf that is expected to last for many years and cut down on costs of maintenance and watering. The multi-use Dome is the home of many local sporting events and even caters to youth practice. Due to its wide sports coverage, Sports Dome felt that a new synthetic turf upgrade was the best option for all the play time it expects to see in the future.

Seeing reputable venues like the Sports Dome and the El Pomar Youth Sports Dome is inspiring Coloradan homeowners to switch over to synthetic turf for their own home lawn or “playing field”. Help the kids practice their latest sports skills every day without the worry of rain from the day before leaving the lawn muddy or having wet grass leave stains on their clothing. Everything from family barbecues, to backyard golf or tennis, and even just the kids or grandkids running around the yard is better without the hassle of upkeep, lawncare, mowing, holes, mud or just plain old dead grass.

It’s now easier than ever to see why homeowners in a variety of regions are opting for artificial turf installation.
