Artificial Grass, AstroTurf Installation – Oahu, Hawaii
If you are wondering about artificial grass in Hawaii you have come to the right place! We agree, artificial grass does not sound very exciting at first. However, there are lot of scenarios in which it is an advantage to have turf (AstroTurf is main brand) over real grass, even in Hawaii.
Artificial grass requires minimal maintenance after installed (time and money)
First and foremost, if you want a total landscape makeover with zero maintenance and worries. Well, let’s rephrase it, nothing is zero maintenance in this world anymore! It’s just so simple and easy because turf will always look its best all year round, despite weather. The only thing you will ever need to do is an occasional weed pull, quick rinse for removal of major debris, and brush with a rake and broom here and there to keep the blades upright.
Turf is safer for your kids and will always lush in a playground area
Another common reason to pick synthetic grass over a natural lawn is if you have kids. Have you ever wondered why the grass under a playground never looks as vibrant and alive as the other areas in the same lawn? That is because constant walking over grass will crush it and compact the soil, especially when wet.
There are strategies to minimize this problem, but the most efficient is to minimize the amount of walking over the lawn. You can build a pathway and take people off the grass, but you definitely don’t want to have pavement in a playground area! Faux grass is proven to be safer for the kids and it is used in most parks and schools already for that matter. Parents love it because they don’t have to worry as much about potentially injuries, ingestion of mud, rocks, sand, or worse, pesticides. Moreover, turf is allergy-free which is a plus with kids.

Synthetic grass is safe for pets and easy to clean in case of urine or poop
If you have dogs on natural grass you may have noticed yellow spots from urine over the time. Artificial lawn is indeed an advantage for pets because it is safe, typically more resilient than natural grass, and can be enhanced with dog-friendly features for optimum absorption and draining.
I am sure you wonder about dog poop and urine and the smell it can create. Simply scoop them up, hose the unwanted stuff off. If you still notice an odor after that, wipe down the area with a vinegar mixture. The odor should be eliminated once dried.
Artificial grass in Hawaii keeps pets clean and is safe for pets of all kinds and sizes!
Artificial grass can be an advantage in pool areas
Another area where it is hard to ensure natural grass to thrive is around a swimming pool. Having real grass near a pool exposes the lawn to more water then what it really needs and often leads to mud. You may find that you also need to clean your pool more often as you find stray blades of grass in your pool. Again, this depends who and how much you use your pool (do your kids like to jump and splash water everywhere? Or is it just a couple of adults using the pool here and there?). This should make it easy to decide what type of grass you should install around the pool.
Synthetic lawn for a sidewalk strip or balcony
A sidewalk strip is that “no-man’s land” between the street and the sidewalk where green struggles to grow and dogs love to do their business. If you don’t have a backyard and all you have is that little bit of greenery in the sidewalk you may want to consider changing to fake grass. Paying to have somebody go all the way there to cut such a small piece of grass or buying all the products you need is not really worth it. Often times you may let it grow too much and incur the risk of getting fined by the city and county.
