It’s tough to grow grass in Arizona and throughout the desert Southwest. Super high temperatures, minimal rainfall and poor soil quality combine to make it hard to grow grass. In fact, it’s hard to get anything to thrive under a relentless, wilting sun with little water and caliche soil. That’s why there’s no better choice than artificial grass. Arizona’s desert climates can be punishing on even the most rugged grasses.
The term “artificial grass” is not one that’s typically met with fond memories. The truth is it can cause Arizonans to run for the hills as they bring to mind images if scary neon green, plastic grass that blisters your toes when you walk on it. Or smelly, stained areas of green plastic that served as grass in a parent’s or grandparent’s yard. The artificial grass of yesteryear was not a pretty sight and it’s left a quite a legacy. But today’s artificial grass is not only natural looking, it’s completely pet-friendly, odor free and soft to walk on. It’s definitely not your grandma’s artificial grass!
Instead of hard, harsh plastic, today’s grasses have a very natural look and feel. In fact, until you get right down and touch it, you wouldn’t even know it was synthetic. And rather than accumulating pet odors over time, modern artificial grass drains well and does not trap odors: ensuring years of fun for you and your pet.
As with any product, there are plenty of cheap, low-quality artificial grasses available on the market. But if you opt for one of today’s high-quality artificial grass options, you will be pleased and amazed at what your “fake” lawn will look like.
