There are a lot of regions in North America that can benefit from synthetic turf; Arizona is definitely one of them. Grass plants do not thrive in areas that are hot and dry. Even when you do manage to grow a healthy lawn, it becomes faded from the sun, brown spots appear, and you have to constantly maintain it. You can eliminate all of these problems by installing synthetic turf. Arizona is so well suited to this type of landscaping that many cities even offer rebates for replacing your natural lawn with an artificial one.
One of the best arguments for switching to synthetic turf is water conservation. Because the soil is not optimal and the air is dry, lawns in Arizona have to be watered more frequently than they do in other regions. Add this to the already depleted water table and the argument for synthetic turf becomes obvious. A combination of artificial grass and other landscaping features such as cacti, stonework, and drought-tolerant plants can create a very pleasant outdoor environment for you and your family.
Not having to regularly irrigate your lawn will significantly reduce household water consumption, which means your monthly utility bills will be lower. It also means you don’t have to worry about insects being drawn to standing water, or the growth of mold, mildew, or fungus.
We get a lot of questions about how synthetic turf is affected by rain and snow. The drainage is actually very similar to natural grass. The turf backing is a material with many perforated holes that allow water and other liquids to drain vertically. The sand that is used for the infill during installation also absorbs and holds water, so you don’t have to worry about puddles or standing water. The same is true for pet urine, and you will never see brown or yellow spots on your synthetic turf.
