When is the Best Time to Install Artificial Grass

Synthetic grass is the ultimate evergreen landscaping solution since it remains clean, durable, and low maintenance all year long. There’s never a bad time to enjoy a synthetic grass backyard; but is there ever a bad time to install it? Although artificial grass can be installed at any time of year, there are certain times that are more optimal for installation than others. Here are several factors you should take into consideration when deciding when to install your synthetic turf lawn.

Artificial Grass Maintenance for Fall

Falling for artificial grass

Generally speaking, an ideal time to have artificial turf installed would be during the fall season. This is after the heat has passed and the rush of outdoor activities has slowed, freeing up the weekend for DIY projects. Additionally, contractors typically see a slowdown in their business in the autumn months, making it easier to schedule an installation. If you install during autumn, you’ll also get to enjoy a fresh green lawn in a time where most natural grass becomes brown and brittle. Installing in fall ensures you get to enter winter with a beautiful, deep green lawn that will stay that way throughout the winter months.

Spring into action

It is common for people to think of spring as a great time for “out with the old and in with the new.” This is why many people have their artificial grass installed in the spring. It is also true that many people with existing grass yards take time in the spring to revitalize their lawn. Why waste this time and water when you can simply have it replaced with low maintenance artificial turf? You can also prevent weeds from growing when you have your artificial grass installed before spring is in full bloom.

Whenever works best for you

Ultimately, the best time of year to schedule your installation is the time of year that’s most convenient for you. Consider any holidays, graduations, birthdays, and other events that would require use of your outdoor space. This will ensure that you don’t have to worry about renovation projects while you’re in the middle of enjoying summer activities or planning backyard parties. 

The bottom line: It is always a good time to install artificial turf

While we will go over some of the reasons people choose to install artificial turf at specific times of the year, the reality is that it is always a good time. If it is cold out, that’s fine – you do not need to worry about the materials being harmed by the cold. If it is hot, you do not need to worry about discoloring, degrading or damage – the turf is made to stand up to this. The reality is that the right time to install your new turf depends on how you plan to use it and when it is easiest for you.
