The Benefits of Artificial Pool Turf
May 2, 2017
POOL TURF CAN TRANSFORM THE LOOK OF YOUR BACKYARD
Pool turf is artificial grass installed around pools. Having pool turf installed in your pool and patio area can completely transform the look and feel of your backyard, making it more inviting and beautiful. In general, artificial pool turf will make your backyard look much more organized, just because it always looks good, unlike natural grass. The problem with natural grass in pool areas is that the pool’s maintenance chemicals can kill the grass. What’s worse, people can track grass, dirt and mud into the pool. This isn’t ideal for anyone, and can even cause problems with the pool’s filter.
Maintaining a backyard pool isn’t easy. You have to balance the chlorine and other chemicals. You have to make sure that organic debris from the yard and surrounding doesn’t get tracked into the pool on dirty feet. Sometimes you’ll have to drain the pool to clean all of the hard to reach areas. Usually this type of work is best left to a professional. Either way, it’s going to cost a lot of time, money, or both. Combine that with the cost and time of maintaining your natural landscape, and you’ll either need to be very rich, or have a lot of free time. Most people are neither very rich, and if they are, they don’t have a lot of free time. But when getting artificial turf for pool areas, there are some additional benefits that you may not have considered.
We all want people to be safe, especially when we’re having backyard parties, or even just taking a leisurely swim. How many times have we been cautious when getting out of the pool? Wet pool decks can be very slick, and with excited kids, this can present a safety hazard. Falling on natural grass is obviously safer than falling on a cement pool deck, but keeping natural grass right next to the pool invites a host of other problems.
With Easy Turf’s artificial grass, you’ll immediately avoid these types of hazards. The traction of artificial turf is far better than the traction of cement, whether it’s wet or not. Getting pool turf allows you to rest easy, knowing that your family will be safer in your backyard.
DEBRIS AND CONTAMINATION
One of the biggest issues with natural grass is that it creates a mess of the yard. The grass sticks to feet, which then track grass clippings and other debris into the pool. While it may not be rainy right now, the wet season will be here in Florida soon and all that dirt, mud and yard debris will also end up being tracked into your home. This requires additional maintenance, which is rarely fun. In addition to the mud, your pool is more vulnerable to collecting stray blades of grass from your lawn. This will mean you have to clean it more often, than if you choose artificial turf.
With artificial pool turf, the only thing you may track into the pool is stray bits of infill. If you end up going with a sand infill for your turf, you aren’t likely to track very much into the pool. This means that you’ll clean it less often, freeing you up to spend more of your time doing what you want.
