In the last decade, artificial grass becomes a new fashionable trend in the home improvement industry. It's really growing aggressively across the country and specifically in Denver, Colorado.
Maintaining a beautiful and healthy lawn in Denver presents the extreme challenge. Most landscaping companies offer programs that consist of at least four treatments per year that include fertilization, pre- and post- emergent weed control (including crabgrass), as well as fungus and insect control.
If your lawn has a fungus, you will see symptoms such as dead areas with green grass in the center or dead serpentine areas. If you start noticing round yellow circles of dead grass, it is possibly a Dollar Spot disease. Soils stressed by insufficient moisture and fertility tend to experience more problems such as fairy ring caused by fungi. In extreme cases, reseeding the lawn is the only way to solve the problem. Many turf diseases occur when a lawn is stressed, a possible factor due to the drought and watering restrictions. Cultural control involves core aerating the lawn in fall and spring, watering in the morning, so leaf blades dry off fast, avoiding over-fertilization and keeping mower blades sharp. If necessary, a lawn fungicide can be applied.
Much of Colorado's soil is clay; it doesn't absorb the water fast enough, which results in a runoff when too much water is applied. Generally, in Colorado, it is recommended to lay sod before seeding the lawn. A soil test is highly advised so you know precisely what kind of soil you have and what's required to correct any deficiencies.
If you have dogs or own a dog facility, there is no way to avoid brown spots from dog's urine. No known type of grass can tolerate dog urine well.
Today, lawn issues can be solved rather quickly. More and more homeowners and businesses in Denver become aware of latest technologies and turn their yards into a beautiful, zero maintenance usable spaces.
One of the coolest things about synthetic grass as you take something that is dead in terms of what do you do with this, and turning into a usable space. That is a serious deal because living outdoors is pretty important. With artificial grass, with every project, no matter it's five or 50,000 feet, there will be absolutely minimal maintenance. You don't have to water at all except for an occasional splash down if there's debris on and things of that nature.
Artificial grass is versatile. You can install it over a lawn, or a concrete making it a little bit greener, softer and more natural. To make sure turf cools off quickly during hot summer months, the CoolMax technology is the number one choice. The blades are shaped like the letter "W," and when the sun hits the surface, the shape of a blade allows the turf to deflect heat which is essential for any Colorado yard.
The great thing about synthetic grass that it's come a long way over the years. Now it has thatch layers to make products look more realistic. We have "dead" blades underneath the natural green blades, and it just makes it look more natural. When it's in an outside yard, you're looking at 55 gallons of water a year savings per square foot.
