Best Synthetic Turf for Grass Allergy Suffers

Grass pollen is typically the most prevalent pollen floating in the air during the late spring and into the summer in Sarasota, causing allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and asthma. Direct contact with grass, whether playing in it or mowing the lawn, can also cause issues like eczema or hives.

Even your family pets can get allergies to grass. If you or any of your family members deal with natural grass allergies, especially allergies associated with grass pollen, you know the challenge of enjoying and maintaining your lawn.

Artificial turf is a family and pet friendly alternative to natural grass. Synthetic grass replicates the look and feel of natural grass while avoiding the allergy causing irritants. Choosing to install synthetic turf because of grass allergies is a smart landscaping option that not only alleviates allergic reactions, but will also save time, money, and water.

In fact, synthetic grass gives you many eco-friendly properties. Consider the carbon monoxide emitted whenever you mow your lawn, which is likely pretty often. If you mow your lawn with a conventional push mower, you emit as much pollution in one hour as 11 vehicles, and a riding mower, as much pollution as thirty four cars! So, not only do you save yourself from the misery of allergies and hassle when you no longer need to deal with natural grass, you are also saving your family, pets, and the environment from harmful airborne pollutants.

People have also tried other alternatives to natural grass in order to get relief from allergies. One common option is mulch, which is common on and around children’s play areas. Mulch, however has issues of its own such as mildew and bacteria, which are also common allergens. Additionally, mulch also requires a good deal of maintenance.
