The landscape in commercial property is important because it affects the general aesthetics. Therefore, it is important to choose features that will enhance this aspect of your premises. One of the important elements in any landscape is the turf, and you can choose natural or artificial grass. The natural alternative provides authentic appeal, but you will require extensive maintenance resources after installation. Commercial synthetic grass is virtually maintenance free because you will not need to mow, fertilise or manicure the lawn. Here are the main aspects to consider when setting up your synthetic grass lawn.
There are assorted synthetic grass products in the market, so selecting the ideal turf for your property can be challenging. You will need to evaluate different factors, which will affect the performance, appearance and durability of your turf. The density of the grass is an important aspect because it will affect the visual impact of the lawn. Low density turf will be cheaper, but the green colour will not be consistent after installation. The pile height will affect the authentic appearance of the lawn and the rate of product wear. Basically, taller blades with infill material will look natural, but the blades will bend faster when exposed to foot traffic. Other important aspects include the brand, warranty and fabrication material, so make thorough inquiries.
You can choose to perform in-house installation of the artificial turf or engage professional. If your commercial operation is not busy and the area to be covered is small, you can perform the installation work. This will help you minimise the total costs of your landscaping project. On the other hand, qualified technicians will produce better results because they are experienced and trained. This mean that the results produced will be long-lasting and frequent repair will not be necessary. In addition, the pertinent installation tasks will be carried out fast and with more efficiency. Ultimately, the right choice for your project will depend on your budget and preference.
As mentioned, artificial turf is favoured because the maintenance demands of the products are minimal. However, you should not neglect the turf after installation because this will lead to reduced aesthetics. It is prudent to create a maintenance schedule prior to or after installation. Generally, the primary tasks that you should consider are sweeping, cleaning and weeding. Sweeping will remove debris such as leaves and litter while light hosing will eliminate dust and pet and bird waste. You should also remove weeds around and between the turf rolls for ideal aesthetics.
