In Nevada’s desert climate, maintaining a green lawn can be virtually impossible. Even with daily watering and hundreds of dollars spent on painstaking maintenance, most Nevada homes will experience brown, dead patches year-round.
These brown patches, actually burnt grass, can be caused by a myriad of factors, including but not limited to Nevada’s sunlight and heat waves. For those striving to achieve a perfectly green landscape, synthetic grass is quickly becoming the No. 1 solution, thanks to its evergreen hue with no daily watering or extensive maintenance required. When you switch to artificial grass, you can eliminate your burnt grass woes.
Don’t Stress About Sun Exposure
The first and most obvious cause of burnt grass is extended exposure to sunlight. Direct contact with Nevada’s intense sunlight will continually heat your grass throughout the day, eventually causing it to wither and burn. Since Nevada has some of the highest sunlight hours in the country, brown grass from sun exposure is a major problem. By replacing natural grass lawns with synthetic grass, however, homeowners can ensure they maintain a perfectly green landscape year-round.
Since artificial grass is made with polyethylene fibers, it doesn’t die and therefore doesn’t change color the way natural grass does. It’s also manufactured with UV inhibitors to ensure colorfastness, so prolonged sun exposure won’t fade the turf’s vibrant green hue even during scorching summers. Our TigerCool products even feature heat-reflective technology that reflects the sun’s rays rather than absorbing them, ensuring that your lawn stays up to 15 percent cooler to the touch versus other synthetic grass products.
Eliminate the Need for Fertilizer
Another common cause of burnt grass is the excess use of fertilizer. Although made to help your natural grass grow, it can often have the opposite effect if not used correctly. If fertilizer is applied unevenly, overapplied, or applied at the wrong time of day, fertilizer can end up scorching your grass rather than nourishing it.
With synthetic grass, on the other hand, no fertilizer is ever needed. Your artificial turf lawn will remain lush and perfectly green all year, no matter the weather, so you don’t have to worry about finding the right time of day or conditions to apply fertilizer. Best of all, synthetic grass is completely non-toxic, so you can completely avoid toxic chemicals and fertilizers that not only harm your lawn but may even harm your pets.
Withstand Pet Waste
Chemically burnt grass isn’t just caused by fertilizers and lawn maintenance products. If you own pets, or if your front lawn is frequented by passerby dogs, pet urine could be the culprit of your burnt grass patches.
Like fertilizer, pet urine is rich in nitrogen, so your dog’s bathroom habits could be killing your grass over time. When you switch to pet turf, however, you can be sure that your lawn will remain green and pristine no matter how much your pup or the neighborhood pets frequent it. All synthetic grass products, including pet turf, are unaffected by pet urine and won’t suffer any adverse effects. Pet urine will never discolor your turf, and it can very quickly and thoroughly be washed away with a quick rinse, thanks to the efficient drainage system.
Avoid Overwatering and Dead Roots
Overwatering is another common mistake Nevada homeowners make with their natural grass. With such hot and dry weather, it’s tempting to constantly water your lawn in an attempt to keep it green. However, this can have unintended consequences that actually kill your grass.
When you overwater your lawn, you’re inviting insects and disease to the roots of your grass. This isn’t always fixable, and it can often cause your lawn’s roots to die. When your roots die, the grass has no way of accessing water to survive, and your lawn will dry up as a result. However, with synthetic grass, this never needs to be a concern.
Since artificial grass doesn’t need to be watered to remain green, you can conserve water, save money, and keep insects at bay in your yard. Since the turf blades also don’t have any roots or organic matter, they can’t die and, therefore, will never turn brown. Your artificial grass lawn will remain beautiful and evergreen whenever you need it, so you can enjoy your low-maintenance lawn all year long.
