What Are the Benefits of Using Artificial Turf?

Artificial turf is made of a composite and synthetic material which appears much like a natural lawn. Artificial lawns started out in sports stadiums and arenas, but are now used in the process of landscaping the garden. Here are several advantages of using the synthetic lawn at home -
Low maintenance - Even a low-maintenance grass is in need of a certain degree of attention throughout the season due to watering, controlling weeds, mowing, fertilizing, etc. But with the artificial lawn it is virtually maintenance free once the initial installation is complete. This type of lawn is perfect for the second home or for the elderly that aren't in a position to complete the required jobs to keep the lawn in good shape.
Avoid Watering - If living in an area likely to experience issues with water restrictions or drought than an artificial lawn is certain to be ideal. During the warmest part of the season it is necessary to water the lawn at regular intervals, so the ability to cut of watering in the early morning or late in the evening is certain to be appreciated by many. A further advantage of being able to cut the watering is the ability to save on water bills, which is certain to be noticed by those with the water meter systems installed.
Environmentally friendly - A further quality of the artificial surface is the ability to cause minimal impact on the environment. A noticeable benefit is the ability to avoid using toxic chemicals or pesticides to control the outbreak of weeds or similar issues. Also, it isn't necessary to use electric or gas-powered lawn mowers or similar power-tools. This is further able to cut down on the released pollutants.
High durability - Most of the artificial turf options are able to handle professional sports, so it is are certain to handle any of the vigorous activities experienced in the garden. This type of lawn is perfect for laying in those areas that are likely to experience a lot of foot traffic or other areas of the garden that might present difficulties for normal grass to grow.
All in all, a well installed artificial lawn is sure to offer the green and attractive gardens areas without needing to put in the time and effort to maintain. And it doesn't matter the time of season or climate. These lawns are perfect for those that are limited in relation to free time for implementing the required maintenance jobs throughout the warm season.

River Rock Landscaping Ideas

Your backyard has been the same for years, and you've decided to give it a new look. You've chosen to put in a modestly-sized brook, and to give it the most natural appearance you can, will be finishing it with river rock landscaping. Because you are new to river rock landscaping, however, you'll need some suggestions which can be quickly and easily implemented.
Rustic Feel
Using river rocks when landscaping is no different from using ocean rocks; they are both popular among those who want to give their landscaping a rustic natural appearance. River rocks are very effective when used to border manmade brooks; but they have to wait until the brooks have been built.
Brook Basics
Brook installation goes far beyond digging a backyard trench and adding water. It includes installing a water circulation system; otherwise the water will stagnate, becoming a breeding ground for insects, algae, and other health hazards hazard. To make sure its water circulates properly, you really need to have a professional install your backyard brook.
You also need to consider the depth of your brook, especially if your have small children. And check your local zoning laws; many communities have strict rules about fencing around water.
Once your brook's water is flowing freely, it's time to devise a plan for your river rock landscaping. You can place the rocks in the brook's channel to give it a more natural look, or you can arrange them along the edges of the brook.
If you decide to place them along the edges, you can substitute faux river rocks for the real thing; they are more readily available, but your river rock landscaping may not look entirely natural.
Consider the Environment
While you may be thinking that river rocks are as near as the closest natural stream or river, you may be prohibited from gathering them because of environmental restrictions. Too many rivers and stream ecosystems are already in fragile condition; having people remove the rocks which offer protection for the wildlife that inhabits them will only make matters worse.
Your best bet for getting river rocks that you can be sure were not taken from environmentally threatened areas is to get them at your local garden supply store.
