Why Is Artificial Turf the Best Choice To Fight Seasonal Allergies?

March 31, 2023

Spring allergy season is now in full swing. If you’re one of the more than 50 million Americans that suffer from outdoor allergies, it’s a dreaded time full of sneezing, coughing, watery eyes and even worsened asthma.

If you’re seeking relief from spring allergies, there are better solutions than antihistamines — changing up your backyard landscaping can help significantly reduce your family’s seasonal allergies. Synthetic turf looks and feels just like real grass, but it has the added benefit of reducing allergy symptoms year-round.

Reduces Pollen Allergies

Pollen allergies are one of the most common allergies in the United States. Released from plants and spread easily by wind, pollen can cause sneezing, wheezing and itchy eyes when it lands on blades of grass within your yard.

By switching to artificial grass landscaping, you can reduce the amount of pollen that lands on your lawn and, in turn, reduce your allergy symptoms. In addition to being made of hypoallergenic materials, artificial turf blades don’t hold onto pollen the same way natural grass does, causing far less severe allergic reactions. Efficient drainage also makes it easy to rinse away any dust and pollen, further reducing your exposure to triggering allergens.

Prevents Weed Pollen Allergies

Pollen allergies generally refer to the pollen from trees, weeds or grasses. Weed pollen specifically, however, can be a major allergen for many Americans, and they tend to flourish during the summer across the country.

Synthetic grass can help reduce or even eliminate your weed allergy symptoms thanks to weed barrier fabric incorporated during your synthetic grass installation. The sheer, non-woven fabric is installed beneath the turf roll and on top of the soil, blocking any weeds that may attempt to grow between the seams of your synthetic grass. By preventing all weed growth in your outdoor space, you can eliminate a significant source of allergies for your household and breathe easier this summer.

Deters Mold Allergies

Common during the winter months, mold spores can trigger allergies just like pollen. Approximately 25 percent of people are estimated to be allergic to mold, and 10 percent of those people experience severe illness as a result.

Synthetic grass helps prevent mold growth and resulting mold allergy symptoms thanks to its efficient drainage system and antimicrobial infill products. Turf grass’s efficient drainage system flushes away water at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, ensuring that water never pools at the surface of your landscaping. This prevents mold and mildew growth, while antimicrobial infill further sanitizes and dries out the surface for a mold-free landscape your whole family can enjoy symptom-free.

Helps Pets with Allergies

Humans aren’t the only members of your household that suffer from allergies. Even if you or your family members don’t have pollen allergies, your pets might. Dogs and cats can experience allergic reactions to tree pollen, grass pollen, weed pollen and even lawn chemicals.

Replacing your natural grass lawn with synthetic turf will minimize your pet’s risk of an allergic reaction and keep them happy and comfortable year-round.
