Las Vegas has more than 300 sunny days each year, and as a result of the sheer volume of good weather many people choose Las Vegas to be their home once outdoor lifestyle aspects become a priority. Older retired people gravitate to Las Vegas for things like golf and hiking, however a growing population of people is moving to the area in order to raise families. These types of people are viewing their backyards as areas where they can not only lounge, but also practice their favorite activities or allow children to play. Many times older folks will choose homes that have little to no backyard space because they have no desire to provide maintenance on the area, landscaping and watering of plants. The mentality is that they feel they will not be using the space, so why pay for it? For families on the other hand, they view the backyard as an area where they can spend time performing the activities that interest them. For these folks, having a backyard space that is usable is very important.
When a backyard space is installed, it is either meant to be used or to be decorative. While desert landscaping elements like rock groundcover integrate with the desert environment and look beautiful, they lack the functionality that many seek because they are not comfortable to walk on. Families with desert landscaped yards tend to spend less time outdoors in their property confines than those with planned activity areas, and for those who are seeking more usefulness from their space, the solution of artificial grass is perfect. While natural grass might be considered the best kind of groundcover for a play area due to the fact that it is soft and will cushion a fall, it is also quite difficult to maintain in the desert. You are going to constantly need to water and landscape it, and even if you spend countless hours performing these tasks, it is still probably going to get thin and brown due to the summer heat. Lets face it, grass wasn’t meant to grow in the desert, and trying to make that happen is going to be an uphill battle. This is why people who want to use their backyards for activity areas and play spaces choose to install fake grass instead. Using artificial grass and an underlay material, you can achieve the same amount of softness that any natural grass field will provide, and also the stability to walk or run on it. Synthetic turf is perfect for outdoor workout areas, putting greens, play areas for children and dog runs. It cleans up easily if there is an accident, it doesn’t need maintenance, and it looks great year round.
