In Phoenix, summer is hot and dry; the winter is mild. Year-round, temperatures usually range from 45℉ to 107℉ and rarely drop below 37℉ or above 112℉.
If you live in a warm climate like Arizona, you may have noticed that grassland farming is widely used. Grassland is installed in extreme weather conditions such as drought-prone Arizona to conserve water.
Although some homeowners are hesitant to install it because they've heard it can get hot. Agape Turf supplies high-quality grass direct from the factory to locations in the US as synthetic turf has proven to be the best grass substitute for warm climates like Arizona.
The state of Arizona is divided into three climatic zones: dry, semi-arid, and humid.
In summer, temperatures can reach 115 degrees in the afternoon and drop below freezing at night. Annual rainfall varies across the state, from three inches in the southwestern areas to 40 inches in the eastern and central areas.
Therefore, Arizona is generally hot and dry, with some extreme temperature variations throughout the seasons. As many homeowners know, it is difficult to maintain a green lawn in this type of climate. Lawns require an exorbitant amount of water, making them difficult to maintain in drought-prone areas like Arizona and California. Some residents have chosen to replace their lawn with something more drought-tolerant, such as mulch, desert plants, and rocks. But many people miss that soft green lawn. Artificial grass is the answer.
Many Arizona homeowners install grass on their lawns for water conservation and attractive landscaping. Grass not only covers the spectrum of climate-specific and environment-tolerant grasses, it far exceeds them. It survives sun, shade, drought, flood, heat, cold, and is trampled, trampled and heavy things fall on it. Artificial Grass is better than natural grass for several reasons, but water conservation is one of the most important.
The turf can withstand extreme weather conditions and temperature fluctuations that natural grass cannot survive, be it the scorching midday heat on cool nights. Some lawns are better suited to warm climates than others, and you also want to make sure you choose the right filling. When laying sod in a warm climate like Arizona, durable, high-traffic turf is a safe bet.
Some lawns are made of materials specifically designed to stay cool in direct sunlight and hot weather. An excellent choice to install is to make sure you look for one that is specifically designed or known for its heat management properties.
At Agape Turf we offer a variety of lawns for every need. Some grass options are suitable for warm climates such as Arizona.
Artificial turf specialists can supply a variety of infill options and materials to help lower surface temperatures in hot weather. These include:
The perfect combination of light-colored grass, heat-reducing padding, and strategic design plus location can keep surface heat down, especially in summer.
Artificial grass saves water:
The United Nations' World Water Development Report 2003 shows that the amount of water available to humans will decrease by 30% over the next 20 years. We must protect and conserve this precious resource, especially in the desert southwest. About 7.8 billion gallons of water are used every day for outdoor use, and most of that goes toward watering lawns and landscapes.
Artificial grass reduces contaminants:
Real lawns need pesticides and fertilizers to keep them green and healthy. 70 million pounds of pesticides are applied to lawns, trees, and shrubs every year; pollute groundwater and send phosphates and nitrates into our lakes and streams. A recent United States Geological Survey survey of surface and groundwater found low levels of pesticides in at least half of the wells tested.
Artificial grass reduces pollution:
In the summer, about 54 million people mow their lawns weekly, a process that consumes 800 million gallons of gas annually. More than 5% of urban air pollution is caused by gas-powered lawnmowers.
Trying to maintain a green lawn in Arizona can be expensive, which is why many homeowners install lawn landscaping to replace the grass. Some modern architects and designers are even installing grass as an alternative roofing material because of its energy-efficient insulation and unique appearance.
The grass is durable enough to withstand extreme weather conditions, and there are easy fixes if the grass starts to get hot under the scorching Arizona sun. Some homeowners worry about how much heat the grass can absorb in direct sunlight, but keeping grass cool is as simple as choosing the right filling and sprinkling it with a little water now and then. At Agape Turf, our mission is to provide high-quality turf at an affordable price to commercial and residential customers.
