Artificial Grass and How to Prevent Allergies

Spring in San Clemente means fun and sun as we transition to summer, but it also means pollen allergies. With the warmer weather comes elevated pollen counts and a resulting increase in hay fever symptoms. Approximately one in six Americans suffer from grass allergies, also called hay fever, which can result in symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes, stuffy nose, hives, trouble breathing, and more. One way to keep these allergies under control is by replacing the grass in your lawn with synthetic turf, which is hypoallergenic.

Synthetic grass fibers are made from hypoallergenic materials that are safe for kids and pets, so pollen allergies are reduced. Artificial grass also doesn’t hold onto pollen particles like natural grass does, which reduces your exposure to pollen and thereby reduces allergies and resulting symptoms. Eliminating real grass around your home’s points of entry—such as windows, doors, and vents—and replacing it with artificial turf will reduce the amount of pollen that enters your home and triggers allergies.

Mowing your lawn can also expose you to large amounts of pollen and exacerbate allergies. The act of mowing and the movement of the grass causes pollen to fly into the air around your home, worsening allergy symptoms. Artificial turf does not require mowing and will keep allergy attacks at bay by reducing the amount of pollen in the air. Turf grass has a short, uniform pile height that stays short and maintained. There’s no excess growth, which would trap dust and debris like in natural grass that causes allergies.

Artificial turf’s lack of maintenance also makes it an excellent choice for the 50 million Americans suffering from allergies. There is no need to water artificial grass, and it stays looking full and healthy all year long. However, synthetic grass’s advanced drainage system means that the turf can be easily hosed down to reduce pollen count even further, with no concern for mud, flooding, or bacteria growth. The low-maintenance nature of synthetic turf also allows you to eliminate any pesticides, fertilizer, or other products that can cause irritation to you, your family, and your pets.

Although there are short-term solutions to hay fever, such as taking antihistamines, artificial grass is a great long-term solution that allows you and your family to enjoy your spring and summer allergy-free.
