Best Synthetic Turf for Grass Allergy Suffers

Grass pollen is most commonly the most prevalent pollen hovering in the air in late spring and summer months in Pittsburgh, causing allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and asthma. Coming into contact with grass, whether you are playing on it or mowing the lawn, can also result in issues like hives or eczema.

Your favorite pets can even suffer grass allergies. If you or anyone in your family endure natural grass allergies, primarily allergies associated with grass pollen, you are familiar with the challenge of enjoying and maintaining your lawn.

Artificial turf is a safe alternative to natural grass. Artificial grass looks and feels like natural grass without the natural irritants. Selecting synthetic turf for grass allergies is a smart landscaping solution that not only cuts down on allergic reactions, but also saves time, money, and water.

In fact, artificial grass offers a lot of eco-friendly properties. Factor in the carbon monoxide created every time you mow your lawn, which is probably pretty often. If you mow your lawn with a conventional push mower, you create as much pollution in one hour as 11 cars, and with a riding lawn mower, as much pollution as thirty four cars! Not only will you save yourself from a day full of allergies and hassle when you no longer need to mess with natural grass, but you’re also saving the environment and your family from harmful airborne pollutants.

Some people have chosen other alternatives to natural grass in an effort to prevent allergies. One of those options is mulch, which is common on and nearby children’s play areas. However, mulch has issues of its own in the form of mildew and bacteria, which are common allergy causes. Mulch also calls for regular maintenance.
