Spending days by the pool is one great way that many people enjoy their summers, but grass around a pool can prove to be a challenge in terms of keeping the pool clean. Pools surrounded by natural grass will often get clogged and dirtied by grass and dirt being tracked in to the water as swimmers get into and out of the pool, creating a lot more work in terms of proper pool maintenance and upkeep for the pool owner. Artificial grass, however, allows a pool to have the aesthetic of being surrounded by lush grass, but without the mess, giving pool owners more time to spend enjoying their pool rather than constantly cleaning or unclogging it.
Pools are meant to be places where people splash, play, and enjoy the water on a hot day, but when natural grass gets wet, it is left fragile and the earth underneath becomes mud. Often, in pool areas, people are getting into and out of the pool frequently and without shoes, creating a situation where grass and dirt will easily be tracked back in to the pool, easily clogging filters and dirtying the water. With artificial grass, however, mud is not created and the grass is made to withstand maximum wear and tear with its ample durability, so these inconveniences can be easily eliminated. Because artificial grass is installed on a synthetic base, dirt and mud will not be able to be tracked back into the pool as it would on natural grass, and the drainage systems located underneath the grass will help to keep the surface itself dry, minimizing slipping hazards.
It can also be difficult to maintain natural grass around a pool area , as clipping the pool with lawn tools can easily damage the structure. Natural grass will need frequent cutting, trimming, clipping, watering, and fertilizing to keep it looking its best, and none of these tasks work well when done within a pool area. Also, natural grass repeatedly coming into contact with chlorinated water will die, thus creating bald patches of dirt or mud, which can then lead to the pool becoming contaminated with this debris as well as an unattractive general pool area. Artificial grass can be made to withstand repeated contact with chlorine, and it never needs to be cut, watered, or fertilized in order to keep it looking its best.
Artificial grass technology has advanced to a point where artificial grass is looking more natural than ever, and a person can have any favorite type of grass made in an artificial form. The base that the grass lays on can be made to be as plush or as firm as a person wishes as well, allowing for complete customization opportunities when designing an optimal pool area . Guests, family members, and pool owners are often surprised by just how natural their artificial grass area looks, and even more surprised when they realize how beneficial and convenient an installation can be, as they find they can then spend more time enjoying their pool and less time maintaining the area. With the natural look and feel of artificial grass, and the conveniences it provides to a pool area, it is no wonder why this choice is growing in popularity with pool owners all over the country.
