Why Artificial Grass is Perfect for Pool Decks

There’s no time of year where Sacramento pools get more use than the height of summer. When the temperature peaks, taking a dip in your backyard pool is one of the best ways to cool off and relax. Whether you’re looking to install a new backyard pool or renovate an existing one, choosing artificial grass landscaping for your pool deck will make your backyard vibrant and beautiful while offering unparalleled functionality and durability. 

Efficient Drainage

One of the stand-out reasons that synthetic turf landscaping is perfect for pool decks is because of its impressive drainage capabilities. Our synthetic turf products are always installed with top-of-the-line drainage systems underneath them, which allows our backyard to drain away water at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. That means that no matter how many cannonballs your kids want to do, your synthetic grass pool deck can handle them all. There’s no surface flooding or brown patches to worry about, and no mold, mildew, or mud to contend with. Even after a full day of active swimming, your artificial grass will be dry within the hour and as pristine as it was before the waterlogged fun.

Better Safety & Comfort

Another reason that homeowners love artificial grass for their pool decking, especially if they have kids, is the enhanced safety. Other traditional pool decking materials such as brick, concrete, and stone can become slick and dangerous when wet. Although kids are always told to walk, not run, around the pool area, they rarely listen. With synthetic turf pool decking, you can have more peace of mind knowing that the texture of turf provides better grip and slip resistance than other deck materials. It’s also more comfortable to walk on than burning hot hardscapes, and we even offer turf with TigerCool technology that remains up to 15 percent cooler than other synthetic grass products.

Lower Maintenance

One of artificial turf’s biggest benefits in all applications is its low-maintenance nature. This is especially true when it comes to synthetic turf pool decks, as it not only allows you to save time and money, but it also makes your pool a safer place. Installing synthetic turf means that you no longer need to mow, trim, or fertilize your natural grass. Keeping gasoline and other toxic chemicals away from your pool water will make it safer and cleaner for your family to enjoy. This also means that there are no freshly-cut grass blades that will get tracked into your pool water and clogged in your filter. Synthetic turf is extremely resistant to pull force, so your turf blades will stay intact and your pool water can remain clean and free of landscaping toxins.

Artificial grass is the perfect pool deck material for keeping your Sacramento swimming pool clean, safe, and comfortable for your family.

How to Make Your Summer More Fun with Artificial Grass

Summer in Sacramento means warm weather, family bonding, and outdoor activities. While there may be limited options for public outdoor fun this year, there’s no end to the amount of activities you can enjoy in your own backyard with artificial grass landscaping. From water wars to leisure sports, Artificial Turf by Fenix can help you enjoy whatever outdoor activities you love most.

Custom Putting Greens

One of the most popular design options for artificial grass landscaping is incorporating a custom putting green. Many homeowners love indulging in some solo putting on weekends or enjoying a round of mini golf with their family. No matter what functionality you want your course to have, we can help you bring your putting green dreams to life. With artificial turf, you can create a putting green regardless of your yard’s shape, size, or terrain. We can incorporate design features such as contours and bunkers, and our synthetic grass products perfectly replicate the look and feel of professional-grade bentgrass. If you want to enjoy the relaxing, no-pressure atmosphere of putting in your own backyard this summer, you can’t go wrong with a synthetic turf putting green.

Water Fights & Slip ‘n’ Slides

In the sweltering summer heat, there’s no better way to cool off than breaking out the water activities. From swimming in a backyard pool to creating a Slip ‘n’ Slide, kids and adults alike make their summer more fun by getting creative with water activities. Normally, water fights and other activities that soak your lawn are a major hassle. Your grass becomes flooded, your yard gets muddy, and broken grass blades get tracked into the house no matter how careful you are. With artificial grass landscaping, however, none of these are an issue anymore! Enjoy as much water-soaked fun as you’d like without having to worry about dead grass, muddy areas, or broken blades. Synthetic turf is extremely durable and resistant to pull force, so blades won’t break off even if you’re running around or slipping and sliding all day. It’s also installed with a highly efficient drainage system underneath the turf, so water drains at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. This means you don’t have to worry about surface flooding and the messy results such as dead patches or mildew growth. 

Bocce Ball Court

Another way to amp up your summer fun with synthetic turf is by installing a bocce ball court in your backyard. Artificial grass is perfect as a bocce ball court material since it offers a clean and leveled surface to play on. Since it can be installed with a durable concrete underlayer, it will remain level and intact even after extensive repeated use. It offers enhanced aesthetic appeal over more common materials such as sand and concrete, but it doesn’t compromise on functionality or practicality. If bocce ball isn’t up your alley, artificial grass is also great for any other kind of leisurely summertime sport, such as badminton, spikeball, or cornhole.
