Even the most painstakingly maintained natural grass lawns suffer from the same problem on occasion: the brown patch. Brown patches in your otherwise-green natural grass lawn are actually areas where the grass has been burnt. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean the grass was burnt in the traditional sense you might expect. Your sod can become burnt by common everyday occurrences such as sun exposure, dog urine, and even fertilizer use.
When you switch to synthetic grass landscaping, you can kiss your burnt grass problems goodbye and enjoy an evenly green lawn 365 days a year. In addition to its low maintenance requirements and incredible durability, artificial turf will also help get rid of the pesky burnt grass problems inevitable in natural grass lawns.
One of the most common forms of burnt grass that people experience when tending to traditional grass lawns is sun exposure. The combination of direct, relentless sunshine and hot weather can cause the grass to burn and become dry, discolored and unsightly.
Since synthetic grass is composed of synthetic polyethylene materials, it won’t discolor or burn from average sun exposure. It can withstand temperatures up to 175 degrees Fahrenheit and is manufactured with UV inhibitors to ensure colorfastness. Best of all, you don’t need to water your synthetic turf to keep it green. You can enjoy an evenly colored lawn year-round with a fraction of the water usage.
For even greater summer enjoyment, consider TigerCool products, which will keep surface temperatures up to 15 percent cooler to the touch for more comfort and enjoyment for the whole family.
Fertilizers are made to help your lawn grow healthy and strong. However, it can often have the opposite effect, and chemical fertilizer is another area where traditional grasses suffer. If you apply too much fertilizer, apply it at the wrong time of day or fail to distribute the product evenly, you can end up burning your grass, leaving unsightly brown patches in your wake.
With synthetic turf installation, you can eliminate the need for fertilizers and other chemicals altogether. Since it’s made out of durable, climate-safe plastics, turf grass doesn’t need any chemicals applied to keep it alive. You’ll be able to safely enjoy your beautiful green space all year without worrying about burning it with fertilizer.
Acidic Pet Urine
If you own pets — or live in a neighborhood where your front lawn frequently becomes a doggy bathroom – then you know that pet urine can quickly kill your green grass. Pet urine is very acidic, and if not treated properly, it can burn grass roots and kill your lawn’s natural growth.
Fortunately, artificial turf is unaffected by pet urine and won’t suffer any adverse effects. Pet urine won’t discolor your turf, and it can very quickly and thoroughly be washed away with a quick rinse down, thanks to the efficient drainage system.
Dead grass roots can be a nightmare for anyone who has worked hard to maintain their lawn; however, they’re an issue that commonly plagues natural grass. There are many reasons that roots die, from disease and rotting to insect infestation, and it’s not always preventable, no matter how much time and effort you put into lawn maintenance.
When your roots die, the grass has no way of accessing water to survive, and your lawn will dry up as a result. However, there’s never any need to worry about this issue with synthetic turf. Since artificial grass isn’t alive, there’s no possibility of dead roots. It will remain beautiful and evergreen whenever you need it — with no need for grueling, constant maintenance to keep it that way.
