Artificial turf is becoming more and more popular in Calgary. Especially for homeowners who are with busy lifestyles who don’t want to worry about making sure their lawns get enough water. Artificial turf has come a long way in the past several years. When it first came on the market it was available in limited styles and textures and most of the product on the market looked very fake or would look fake after a couple years of enduring our harsh Calgary winters. There has definitely been a huge improvement in artificial turf quality as well as options to choose from. You can find artificial turf in many different styles and textures. From light to very dark green these options do mimic the look of real grass quite well. For pet owners, there are multiple choices that resist absorbing pet odours if your pet chooses to use the turf as the place to go potty. The quality of artificial turf has greatly improved if you choose a high quality turf, it will withstand the Calgary winters and maintain its natural look for many years. If you are considering artificial turf you will need to consider the costs as it can be quite costly. Artificial turf requires the same compacted base as paving stones or concrete in order to resist frost heaves and maintain a level look over the years. Costs can vary depending on the style of artificial turf you choose but count on a minimum of 20.00/square foot for materials and professional installation.
