Best Synthetic Turf for Grass Allergy Sufferers
Grass pollen is typically the predominant pollen in the air during the late spring and into the summer months, causing allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and asthma. Direct contact with grass from either playing in the grass or mowing the lawn can also cause issues like hives and eczema.
Your household pets can even experience allergies to grass. If you or one of your family members suffer from allergies associated with natural grass, specifically those from grass pollen, you know the struggle of enjoying and maintaining your lawn.
Synthetic turf is a safe alternative to natural grass. It replicates the look and feel of natural grass without the natural irritants. Installing synthetic turf for grass allergies is a smart landscaping solution that not only alleviates allergic reactions but also saves time, money, and water.
In fact, synthetic grass has many eco-friendly properties. Consider the carbon monoxide emitted every time you mow your lawn, which is probably fairly often. If you mow your lawn with a traditional push mower, you are emitting as much pollution in one hour as 11 cars, and with a riding lawn mower, as much pollution as 34 cars! Not only are you saving yourself from a day full of allergies and hassle when you no longer have to deal with natural grass, but you're also saving the environment and your family from harmful airborne pollutants.
Some people have turned to other natural grass alternatives in an effort to alleviate allergies. One of those options is mulch, especially common on and around children's play areas. However, mulch brings issues of its own in the form of mildew and bacteria, which are also common allergens. Mulch also requires frequent maintenance.
