Keep Pests Away This Summer with Synthetic Turf

The summer season can be a fun time for all. From relaxing under the sun to family barbecues, there’s no shortage of entertaining outdoor activities that this time of year brings. What’s not fun is the abundance of bothersome bugs that seem to thrive during this season. If you’re someone who just can’t stop running into pests, you may need to take a look at your natural grass lawn and consider replacing it with synthetic turf. Here’s why you should be making the switch to artificial turf if you hope to keep pests away this summer. 

Takes Away Their Food Source and Nest Areas

Natural grass can be a messy surface filled with dirt, leaves, and fallen branches. This type of environment is ideal for pests because of the number of possible nesting places and food sources to consume. This isn’t the case with artificial turf, which is a much cleaner and neat surface. There isn’t much to eat for pests in artificial turf,  which means that they won’t stay and make their home there. 

No Water or Moisture to Attract 

Pests are attracted to stagnant bodies of water and moisture. Both of these are often found with natural grass lawns which is why pests love to flock to them. Meanwhile, artificial grass can avoid such outcomes, thanks to its features and properties. High-quality artificial turf like the ones offered by OC Turf & Putting Greens has a drainage system that allows for water and moisture to pass through without building up. This means no stagnant bodies of water or moisture for pests to be drawn to. 

No Chemicals Needed

The best part of synthetic turf’s ability to repel pests is the fact that you won’t have to use harmful pesticides like you would with natural grass. Pesticides contain toxic chemicals that are a threat to the health and well-being of those who are around them. With artificial turf, you don’t have to put your and your loved ones’ health at risk to keep pests away. At OC Turf & Putting Greens, all of our artificial grass products are non-toxic and lead-free, making them a safe and friendly landscaping solution for you and your family.
