Top 3 benefits of having artificial turf in the winter

Do you dread the bare, lackluster color of natural grass in the wintertime?

What about the muddy mess it turns into when it snows? We agree, trying to take care of grass can be a real seasonal bummer.    

Instead of anxiously awaiting the return of summer — and your rich green lawn — why not invest in something that holds up even in the harshest conditions?

When temperatures drop, and snow moves in, your artificial turf will still look beautifully brilliant. Here are the top three benefits of having artificial turf in cold weather.

No More Muddy Shoes

Snow is beautiful, but you can’t forget about its muddy remnants. This is one of the many reasons why artificial turf is a game changer during the wintertime. Its drainage capabilities save you from tracking in a muddy indoor mess. Now, the kids and the dogs can play outside as much as they want, and you can be worry-free. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Say Goodbye to Excess Water

Winter doesn’t take it easy on your lawn. The surge of water after a big snowfall can be one of the toughest things to deal with. Most of the time, natural grass can’t keep up. Why? It’s hard on natural grass to absorb large amounts of water.

Artificial turf with infill makes all the difference. If you’re wondering what exactly infill is, it refers to small pieces of material, such as sand grains, installed to lay within the individual blades of grass. Infill is crucial for protecting turf fibers so your turf stays looking its absolute best.

We can’t talk about artificial turf and infill without mentioning the drainage factor. This is where artificial turf in snow wins the day. 

As ice and snow melt, water drains through turf backing with the help of the right infill. USGreentech’s Envirofill is made from round acrylic coated sand. Its shape and size helps the drainage process run smoothly. The great news is, when it’s all said and done, you don’t have to do anything extra to get your lawn back to looking green and lush. Your infill, and artificial turf, will do the work for you.

Don’t Worry About Mold Growth

If this isn’t your first rodeo with seasonal change, you also know natural grass is much more susceptible to mold. But not artificial turf with Envirofill. Every particle of Envirofill comes infused with Microban® antimicrobial product protection to help prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria.

Better yet, USGreentech’s infill offerings blend right into your artificial grass. So the next time you peak over at your neighbors’ dead grass, you can smile. You can grin from ear to ear knowing that your grass looks amazing. 

Ready for another perk? Artificial turf is seriously low maintenance, so you can spend more time enjoying it. Love your lawn. Wow your neighbors.

This year, instead of dreading the winter season, you can look forward to it. Don’t worry about the inconveniences and eye sores of natural grass. Revel in the beauty and hassle free perks of your artificial turf in cold weather or snow. Find artificial turf with Envirofill or Safeshell near you
