As Americans, we love our lawns. They provide us with a place to gather, play and relax. Lawns are central to the American way of life. Yet, they are a lot of work too, particularly when shade is introduced. If you have trees in your yard then you know the struggle is real. Grass needs sunlight to grow. You might need a solution for shade. Why?

A lack of sun in the lawn equation means a lot of dirt under those nice large trees you are so fond of. And while dirt is not a huge issue, after a good rain you are left with a muddy mess. Children and animals seem magnetically drawn to these spots in your yard and before you know it, furniture and carpet in the house get an outdoor makeover. Mud is all over the place.

So what to do? There are types of grass that grow in shade, but getting them installed and set can be tricky. Plus, most of the time they end up looking more like ground cover than grass and beyond that, the maintenance aspects are costly and time consuming. What you need is a solution for shade. One that works. The best answer? Artificial grass.

Why Artificial Grass is the Best Solution for Shade

Think about it. Artificial grass is not affected by extreme temperature variations, stays green and requires no watering. There are other benefits too. Let’s take a closer look.

No more fighting. It takes work to keep grass growing with lackluster sunlight. The battle is constant. Artificial grass takes the fight away. Instead of wondering how long your grass will last, you can admire it all year long. So put the fertilizer and special care instructions to rest. Then enjoy the view. It’s much better than a huge bare spot.

Economical. While it may cost a bit more initially to install artificial grass, long term cost savings are your friend. You might realize them quicker than you think too. Consider how much money you would need to spend on maintaining that particular problem area of your lawn. Artificial grass as a solution for shade is a one time investment that will pay you back for years to come.

Beyond saving money, your new problem spot will save your most precious asset, time.Would could take hundreds of hours of maintenance in special care and attention throughout the year instantly vanishes when you install artificial grass as a solution for shade. Between the money and time, the investment just makes sense.

Evergreen Enjoyment. Imagine looking out over a space that was once a bare eye sore and seeing lush green grass. Now imagine that is all you will see every single time you cast a glance toward that spot. It almost sounds too good to be true. To us, it sounds like the perfect solution for shade.

Pest Prevention. Bugs tend to thrive in shady spots. The cooler temperatures carry humidity and  create a moist environment. Both of these act as flashing neon lights in your yard. Shady spots are pest rich environments. Addressing the problem with artificial grass takes away the incentive for pests to thrive. The lack of moisture and nutrients will force them to move elsewhere for survival. The shady spot can become your own pest free haven.

At this point in the process you may have a few questions, especially if you are new to artificial grass. After all, your solution for shade may have been traditional lawn care products until you read this post. Questions are okay.
