Artificial Turf or Sod

To do Artificial Turf or Sod, that is the question!

Lawn or ‘green spaces’ are essential in most landscapes. Sod, or seed(i.e. natural grass) is the most popular option for many reasons. First, it’s natural! Grass is also going to be less expensive to install than artificial turf. But natural grass has it’s down-sides as you already know. You have to mow it, fertilize it, fight the weeds, and deal with those brown spots that your pets make.

All of these ‘down-sides’ to grass add up to ongoing expenses too. You need to buy and maintain a lawn mower, gas it up and run it regularly or pay a lawn maintenance company. Then, you need to put down fertilizer, weed control, and don’t forget the watering. Irrigation systems or even hoses and sprinklers will cost you time and money.

Maybe it’s time for you to consider Artificial Turf as an alternative. Sure, it will cost you more for the initial expense. But, if you add up all those other expenses in the long run, you might think it’s worth it. You may not be aware that there’s a “pet friendly”version of Artificial Turf that is soft on their paws, and is easy to clean up. Urine will go right through, and you pick up the droppings the same as you would for sod. Artificial Turf is great for dog runs where you don’t want the dogs to turn your sod into a “moon scape”or leave those unsightly spots all over the place.

The photo shows an area of Artificial Turf where grass would look good, but would be inaccessible by a lawn mower. Artificial Turf was a good option here to create a green space.

There are types of artificial turf that are also great if you want to create a golf putting green.

Thanks for putting in the time to write this! I own a landscaping company in Florida, so we don't have many people wanting artificial turf, but now I'm more educated if anyone ask for it! Thank you!
