Since its creation, literally an avalanche of studies and articles announce that synthetic turf is dangerous to the environment. Although definitive conclusions cannot be presently drawn from them, many still proclaim the artificial lawn material’s adverse effects to the environment to this day.
Not saying that these claims were true then but even if it were, it is no longer the case today, thanks to technological advancements in the field, the modern synthetic grass installed by Fort Lauderdale installers are environmentally friendly as can be. In fact, in most situations, they can be better for the environment than their natural counterparts.
One particular area that synthetic grass is better than natural grass is in the chemical runoff that each system produces. Are you aware that much of the chemicals used to maintain lawns run-off into rivers, lakes, streams, oceans, and other near by bodies of water? These chemicals, which may include weed killers, fertilizers, and other artificial additives, can contaminate large water supplies, and thus be severely detrimental to the environment.
By using synthetic grass, you no longer have to buy any of these chemicals just so your lawn continues to look green, well-kept and beautiful. Just think, there’s no longer any need to maintain your lawn because it will look its same beautiful self from the first day you install it to the time you choose to replace it with a new set. No trimming, no mowing, no nothing of the sort.
Aside from having a positive impact on the environment, you also save money. All of these benefits can be yours when you switch to artificial grass.
In a 2007 study, researchers in Portland, Oregon discovered synthetic chemicals in wild salmon. How did the synthetic chemicals get into the salmon’s systems, you may ask? They get there because lawn maintenance chemicals have infiltrated their environment as a result of run-off. This is just an example of the harm that lawn maintenance chemicals can do the environment. There are more.
