Artificial turf or real grass for your landscaping?

Artifical turf is becoming more and more popluar in Calgary.  Especially for homeowners who are with busy lifestyles who don't want to worry about makin sure their lawns get enough water.  Artifical turf has come a long way in the past several years.  When it first came on the market it was availalable 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 artifical turf quality as well as options to choose from.  You can find artifical 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 odors if your pet chooses to use the turf as the place to go potty.  The quality of articial turf has greatly improved if you choose a high qualty turf, it will withstand the Caglary winters and maintain its natural look for many years.  If you are considering arificial turf you will need to consider the costs as it can be quite costly.  Artifical 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 articial turf you choose but count on a minimum of 20.00/square foot for materials and professional installation.  Chinook Landscaping can provide you with a no cost estimate for your artifical turf so contact us today to learn more.
