Public parks are the jewels of cities: they give urbanites a place to go to see a little greenery. And while they come in all shapes and sizes, city parks all require one thing: maintenance, and a lot of it. 

And unfortunately, that care doesn’t come for free, so parks often have to balance their budgets between upkeep and other programmatic needs. As if that wasn’t enough, parks play host to tons of year-round events, from sports to music festivals, that demand attention.

That’s why more and more city parks are turning towards artificial grass surfaces to help keep budgets and goals in line with each other. 

Reducing big maintenance costs

Natural grass parks need to be mowed, sprayed with pesticides and weed killers, watered, and replaced, repeatedly. Artificial turf, on the other hand, requires none of that. Imagine wiping out the majority of a monthly water bill!

Not to mention, parks don’t need to maintain and store the expensive equipment required for maintenance. With synthetic turf, a leaf blower, rakes, and a broom are sufficient for ongoing care.

Safer environments for all

Artificial turf is designed to be safe for users of any age, human and animal. The surface cushions children playing, and it won’t create awkward or dangerous holes or divots. Not to mention, because no chemicals are required to keep artificial grass looking its best, no one will be exposed to any toxins.

Welcoming to pets

Pet urine can lead to dried natural grass and unpleasant odors. With artificial turf, urine quickly drains through a layer designed to keep liquid moving. Because urine doesn’t stick around, it won’t lead to any smells, and you’ll never have to worry about stained patches. Plus, solid waste is easier to see and clean up, and pets enjoy the soft surface turf provides.
