Summer Backyard Activities with Artificial Grass

No time of year allows you utilize your backyard space to its fullest more than summer. When the weather starts to heat up, residents throughout Azusa start spending more and more time enjoying the outdoors, from playing sports to lounging around and indulging in summer barbecues. With artificial grass, you can make the most of all that summer has to offer thanks to the numerous advantages it has over natural grass lawns. Here are some exciting backyard activities that you can enjoy with artificial grass this summer.

Water Activities

Along with the summer heat comes sprinklers, water guns, Slip ‘N Slides, water balloons, and any kind of water activity that will allow you to cool off while having fun. With natural grass, these water games can damage your lawn, flooding it and causing damp or matted surfaces. Excess water can cause broken glass blades, dead patches, and even the growth of mold or mildew, so water activities can’t be as carefree as you’d like them to be. However, with synthetic grass, an ultra-efficient drainage system allows you to cool off and have fun to your heart’s content without worrying about a waterlogged lawn. Synthetic turf drains at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, which means that you’ll never have to worry about mud-stained clothes or wet grass blades stuck to you when you’re enjoying water-themed games outdoors. Your lawn will feel completely dry within the hour, and the efficient drainage combined with effective antimicrobial infill product will prevent mold and mildew from growing on the surface of your artificial grass. 

Custom Putting Greens

Another way that many Azusa residents like spending their lazy summer afternoons is enjoying a round of golf. With custom artificial grass putting greens from Duran Lawn Creations, you can spend the summer practicing your short game from the comfort of your own home. Whether you want some family mini-golf time or professional golf training, a custom putting green in your backyard is a great way to amplify your summer with synthetic turf. Our custom putting greens are fully tailored to your specifications and can accommodate any size, shape, or terrain that your home has available. If you have a small, narrow side yard or an awkwardly-shaped area, a customized artificial grass putting green can be the perfect solution. We can also incorporate contours, bunkers, and tiers for a realistic effect that will have you ready for the PGA in no time.

In-Ground Trampolining

If the long summer days still haven’t tired your kids out, a backyard trampoline will be sure to do so. Artificial grass makes it easier than ever to install one in your home, with many of the deterrents of in-ground trampoline installation eliminated thanks to turf’s durability and drainage. In-ground trampolines require proper drainage in order to prevent rusting and deterioration over time. While this is a costly and time-consuming endeavor with natural grass lawns, artificial grass comes with a highly efficient drainage system that perfectly accommodates an in-ground trampoline’s needs. The durability of synthetic grass also makes it ideal for trampolines, as there’s no risk of killing the surrounding grass due to endless running and tumbles off the trampoline. The in-ground trampoline installation process itself can also normally cause the surrounding grass to become brown and patchy due to high foot traffic and inadequate water supply, but artificial grass will remain evergreen and lush all year long despite these conditions. With synthetic turf, you can incorporate safe and fun activities for your kids while keeping your backyard looking beautiful.

Backyard Jungle Gyms

If you want to create a playground in your own backyard, do it with synthetic grass. IPEMA-certified artificial grass play systems are specially created to protect children during playtime, so they can have as much fun as possible while you have peace of mind. Our artificial grass play area turf is padded to absorb shock and prevent injury from falls, so your kids are better protected than with natural grass lawns underfoot. Synthetic turf’s non-abrasive surfaces also protect from scrapes and scratches, while the polyethylene material and anti-microbial infill mean that you don’t have to worry about mud, grass stains, or splinters when your little ones finally come inside for the evening. Play area turf’s durability ensures that it will stay green and lush even with kids running and roughhousing for hours on end. Let your kids enjoy all that Azusa summers have to offer by installing an artificial grass play area in your backyard today.
