Benefits of Synthetic Turf for Pool Decks

May 8, 2020

With summer well on its way, many Sacramento residents are looking for a way to upgrade their backyard pool so they can maximize fun in the sun. One way to elevate the look of your pool and your landscaping in one fell swoop is to make the switch to artificial grass. It’s a beautiful and functional landscaping solution that is perfect for use around pool decks. Here are just a few of the benefits of synthetic grass for residential or commercial pool decking.

Easy to Keep Clean

One of the main reasons that people choose artificial grass for their yard is because of its extremely low-maintenance nature. With turf grass, there’s no need for mowing, trimming, fertilizing, or daily watering. Because of this, installing synthetic grass in any part of your backyard will save you ample time and money. This is especially beneficial around pool decking, as the low-maintenance nature of turf allows you to keep your pool water cleaner and safer for your family. There’s no need for gasoline-powered maintenance tools or toxic fertilizer chemicals near your pool. There’s also no trimmed or loose grass blades that will get tracked into your pool water due to wind or bare feet. This lessens the impact on your pool’s filter and makes maintenance for both your lawn and your pool a breeze.

Extremely Durable

Another benefit to artificial grass is that it’s much more durable than real grass. In addition to not having to worry about stray grass blades, you also won’t experience any dead patches or bald spots. Turf’s polyethylene material stays perfectly green year-round without watering, so your pool deck will always look healthy, lush, and perfectly maintained. With artificial grass, there are no bald spots for kids to trip on or brittle, brown patches that will hurt underfoot. Instead, enjoy the soft, comfortable feeling of artificial grass landscaping year-round when enjoying your backyard pool.

Impressive Drainage

SGW Sacramento’s artificial grass products are known for having some of the highest drainage rates in the industry. With an average drainage rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, you won’t need to worry about flooding or slippery surfaces from pool overflow. Let your family splish and splash to their heart’s content; your turf will remain dry and safe to walk on. The lack of soil also means that you don’t need to worry about mud when things get wet; instead, antimicrobial infill will help prevent mold, mildew, and other contaminants from forming on the surface of your artificial grass. Artificial grass is also safer for pool decking than hardscape alternatives like brick or concrete due to its ultra-efficient drainage. Smooth hardscapes can become slick when wet, creating a safety hazard for your family and guests. Synthetic turf, on the other hand, provides more traction and dries more quickly for a worry-free pool day.
