One of the biggest misconceptions about artificial grass in Tampa is that it gets too hot when it’s out in the sun. While this may be true for some synthetics, we've found that our artificial grass is cooler than a natural lawn. And since Artificial Grass Pros of Tampa Bay don't use black or colored silica sand infills, you can walk barefoot on our product—even during the hottest days! We want to make sure you know how to keep your artificial turf cool and comfortable. So here are some tips: Consider your temperature range before choosing a color or texture for your new installation. You want to make sure that the color and texture won't absorb too much heat from direct sunlight. If possible, install artificial turf in areas where there's shade during the summer months—this will help keep the temperature down on hot days. Keep an eye on those temperatures! It's easy to do with today's technology; just use an app like Weather Underground to keep track of temperature changes over time across various locations around your property (e.g., under trees vs exposed areas).
