It is a very attractive landscape solution that requires minimal resources and maintenance while saving millions of gallons of water each year.

How is the turf installed?
When you hire a contractor or Green Air Solutions, they will have to remove any grass or landscaping that you are going to replace with your synthetic lawn turf. There needs to be boards installed to perfect the edge of your new lawn. Drainage must be considered and a base of granite, pea gravel or something similar should be laid down and installed in such a way that there is proper water run-off. A weed barrier will be laid down so you won’t have to worry about weeds popping up through the artificial grass. Cutting it to shape is as easy cutting a carpet- so your new lawn fill fit your space perfectly fine.
Turf is perfectly safe for children and pets and your entire family. Pets tend to treat artificial grass like normal grass- and the clean-up is easy to wash away. Children rarely know the difference between the artificial turf versus real grass because today’s synthetics are so realist and soft.
