Artificial grass is one of the many developments in turf and landscaping that have taken place over the past decade. While there are several natural grass alternatives, including herbaceous species and turf-type materials, turf has often benefited from the incorporation of synthetic materials.
High Traffic areas
An increase in foot traffic can be attributed to the widespread use of synthetic turf due to the ease of maintenance and durability. Synthetic turf Dubai, which includes PVC, expanded polystyrene (ERP) and polyurethane (PU) contains adhesive, where other materials do not. Moreover, artificial grass is also able to withstand various environmental conditions, such as low humidity, extreme heat, and cold, and heavy foot traffic.
Around Swimming pools
In addition to the aforementioned attributes, polypropylene turf can withstand extreme temperatures because of its high vapor transmission capacity. Low moisture content can be attributed to the high amount of vapor transmission ability in polypropylene materials. In fact, low moisture polypropylene materials are the ideal material for applications with low moisture content, such as swimming pools, outdoor fountains, golf greens, and basketball courts.
However, although turf designers are continually looking for ways to improve upon the moisture absorption rate of the material, UV resistance is still a very important factor. This is because sunlight typically breaks down the surface texture of real grass by converting the lignin, or fiberglass component of the material into chemical bonds with the protein content of the blade. As a result, grass blades become dull and dry more quickly, making it necessary to replace blades more frequently. Luckily, the use of UV resistant artificial grass blades provides artificial grass owners with an option to preserve their grass blades through the prevention of damage that sunlight, heat, and moisture can cause.
One particular application that many property owners and landscape designers find useful is the implementation of turf drainage holes. In order to optimize the usefulness of artificial grass, this system serves both the practical purpose of providing proper drainage for the blades and to increase the overall aesthetic value of the yard. Turf drainage holes allow water and moisture to escape easily from the bottom of the blades, which in turn promotes the growth of healthy grass. In addition to providing proper drainage, this system also protects the turf from wind and other external forces that can damage the ground. Finally, the presence of drainage holes allows homeowners to avoid the expense and hassle of excavating the subsoil or grading the earth in order to create pockets for drainage.
Beyond drainage holes and controlling the frequency of mowing, the primary function of artificial grass is to provide an environment that is conducive for healthy lawn grass. For example, because of the lack of natural grass, it is important to remove the dead leaves and other debris on a regular basis. Doing so provides an environment in which the nutrients contained within the soil can be properly released. This can dramatically enhance the growth of the new grass, ensuring that you will have a green, lush lawn with stunning color all year long.
Dubai Artificial Grass incorporate a two-fold approach to grass maintenance. The first approach involves the development and implementation of a maintenance program that will maximize the stability and longevity of the turf. Typically, this includes proper watering, and fertilization schedules, as well as the use of protective coatings on the blades and the pile heights. On the other hand, another maintenance program involves the elimination of weeds through herbicide applications. Both methods aim to increase the lifetime of the turf, as well as its ability to resist adverse weather conditions.
