Most people in Jacksonville treat their lawn like "dirt." They drench it with pesticides & herbicides - and that is the wrong science. In Jacksonville, the city in a state of Florida, heat is centric to the culture, and even though the majority of homeowners have grass lawns, they are all thinking replacing it with an artificial turf.
Residents in Jacksonville city, where millions of gallons of drinkable water are dumped into lawns every day, year-round, are considering alternative solutions to their gray lawns. Natural grass fields use a lot of water, and due to state's water droughts, many residents are considering to install artificial grass at their homes. Many are realizing that natural grass has a lot of care to deal with, such as mowing, water and fertilizing it. However, the use of fertilizers and pests' sprays harm beneficial organisms, like earthworms and natural nutrition on, which eventually kills the green plant itself and leaving you with the dissatisfaction of dried looking yard. With so many kinds of fertilizers from which to choose, it's difficult to make the right decision that would not harm the grass and soil.
Also, weeds are another problem that residents see when considering replacing it with artificial turf. Soil that is so dry because of Jacksonville hot weather or too wet due to overwatering that causes thin spots, underfed grass - is sweet home to all kinds of weeds. Weeds love all of the conditions that your lawn does not, and they would germinate in your lawns, and it is not pretty when it does so. The weeds start to take over, and people stop picking up after their dogs (leaving another toxic ingredient), figuring that the homeowner does not care. But many do care about their lawns - they do not want it to grow. And then there's the continuous, bothering noise from all those mowers and blowers, on different greens that leave enormous Carbone footprint. Each of the hundreds of thousands of gas-powered mowers cutting that lushly watered grass produces 11 times more pollution every hour than a car.
An excellent solution for many Jacksonville residents to find lawns with long, smooth blades of grass that looked exactly like real grass but happened to be plastic - is artificial turf. It is not a cheap product, but given that it does not require mowing, watering, reseeding, or fertilizing, it would pay for itself in eight years. Synthetic turf installed by lying down like a carpet, over prepared ground. On occasions, grass requires to be hosed off with water, but it drains itself.
You can get different synthetic turf products that are pleasant for your touch. They are all season durable, with varying choices of style, like putting green short or long, or somewhere in between. You can get dark green or light olive green, depending on the kind of grass that grows near you. You can even choose the color of the underlayer to give a unique dirt look. The best part?
No pouring clean water into the grass.
No pollution from gasoline to mow it.
No chemicals are running into the sea.
And then there is the luxury days with peace and the conservation of water.
