Top 10 Advantages of Artificial Turf

Mar 12 2018

Tired of mowing and reseeding your lawn? Concerned about the environmental impact of watering your grass lawn? Don’t want your kids and pets around pesticides? If you're asking yourself any one of these questions, you may want to consider installing artificial turf. The look and feel are better than ever, plus it is environmentally friendly, safe and economical.

Here are10 advantages of artificial grass:

Less time working and more time enjoying

With artificial grass, you no longer need to mow, weed, spray pesticides or reseed. An artificial lawn just needs light cleaning, rather than constant maintenance. Just use a leaf blower or plastic rake to remove objects like sticks and leaves. Sticky spills can be hosed off to prevent them from attracting dirt and bugs. In addition, artificial turf does not stain.


Artificial grass is softer and safer than real grass and kids love playing on it. Parents love the fact that there are no more stained pants, scraped knees or grass allergies. Plus, System Pavers SP Turf® is made with antimicrobial acrylic coated infill, not ground rubber, so it is more resistant to heat absorption, giving kids a nice cool lawn to play on.


For pet owners, liquids drain right through the artificial grass. Solid pet waste can be picked up as it would be with regular grass or washed off with a hose. Plus, dogs are not able to dig through the turf, meaning no more muddy paw prints in the house.

Environmentally friendly

With System Pavers SP Turf®, there is no need for watering, worrying about pesticides, or dealing with the hassle of gas-powered lawn mowers that pollute the air. 


SP artificial grass is fire-retardant and anti-flammable. Additionally, it is non-toxic and antimicrobial, so children and pets won’t be harmed if swallowed. The antimicrobial acrylic coated infill also prevents bacteria and germs from incubating in your lawn.


With no water, next to no maintenance, and no reseeding, artificial grass is less expensive over time than real grass. It is generally expected to have a 20-30-year life expectancy. In some locations, residents are also eligible for rebates from their water district if they have artificial grass.

Improves Problem Lawns

Artificial grass can improve lawns with poor drainage better than real grass. Our SP Turf® grass lawns have specially designed drainage holes placed throughout the turf to ensure water drains quickly and efficiently, so it will not pool on the surface.

No more pesky critters

Rabbits and insects will no longer ruin your lawn by eating your grass – without the use of pesticides or other chemicals that could harmful to pets and children.

No weeds, mold or mildew

Weeds cannot grow through the turf backing, so weeding will be a thing of the past.  Additionally, due to its extremely porous design, mold and mildew are never a problem.

Finally, artificial lawns look great

Our new generation of artificial grass is soft and lush. You choose the length and the color that you prefer. Forever green, you can have the lawn you have dreamed of for years to come. Isn’t it time you take your shoes off and relax?
