Why Artificial Grass is Perfect for Pool Decking

July 22, 2019

If you’re a Sacramento homeowner with an in-ground pool, then you know that pool ownership isn’t all carefree fun. Being responsible for a backyard pool means that you need to worry about balancing chemicals, cleaning filters, maintaining structure and finishings, and keeping your deck safe for swimmers. All homeowners want their pool to be as safe, practical, and fun as possible so that you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying the summer weather. If this is the case for you, then it will also be the case for your Sacramento clients, which is why we recommend artificial grass for your client’s pool deck material. Artificial grass is becoming an increasingly popular decking option in Sacramento due to its many benefits which allow residents to spend less time maintaining the safety and quality of their pool area and more time enjoying it.

Low Maintenance

Artificial grass is best known and most loved for being a low-maintenance landscaping option. It never requires mowing, trimming, fertilizing, or re-sodding; and watering is no longer a daily or weekly chore. Artificial grass stays evergreen and the perfect height all year long, no matter how much weather or foot traffic it sees. Being able to eliminate these maintenance routines will allow homeowners to eliminate the use of gasoline-powered tools and fertilizer chemicals around their pool. This will keep their pool water safer and cleaner for their family.

High Durability

Artificial grass is much more durable than real grass, making it an ideal solution for pool deck material. Synthetic turf is specifically engineered to withstand a high amount of foot traffic and resist breakage, so the blades won’t break off and get tracked into the pool or house like with natural grass. Its durability not only makes it neater and cleaner for your client’s home, but it will also ensure that their backyard looks beautiful all year long. Artificial grass always appears lush, healthy, and evenly colored, so there’ll never be any unsightly brown, dead patches like those that occur with natural grass. No matter how much walking, running, and playing happens on an artificial grass pool deck, it will always stay clean, neat, and attractive.

Easy Drainage

Perhaps the most beneficial trait that artificial grass has for pool decking is its ultra-efficient drainage capability. The deck area around a pool sees a lot of water introduced due to diving, splashing, and playing that causes water to overflow out of the pool. With real grass, this overflowing water would flood the surface of the yard, resulting in a slipping hazard and even the growth of mold or mildew. However, with artificial grass, the surface of the grass stays dry and, therefore, safe. Artificial grass features a drainage system that can drain water at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. At this rate, the artificial grass is completely dry within the hour and there is never any mud, slipping, or water pooling to worry about. Antimicrobial infill working in combination with this drainage system also helps prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and other harmful contaminants. Clients can keep every area of their backyard safe and dry with synthetic turf so that families can keep having worry-free fun.

If your client’s Sacramento home features a beautiful in-ground pool, consider utilizing artificial grass for their pool deck option in order to keep their family as safe and as happy as possible. All of the traits that make synthetic turf optimal for landscaping also make it perfect for pool decking.
