Why You Should Get Artificial Grass
3 Major Advantages of Synthetic Turf
A well-manicured lawn is part of any homeowner’s pride. It’s a great space to bond with family and friends, or to simply enjoy the weather on a good day. Of course, that gorgeous green is just a joy to look at as well.
But all that beauty does come at a cost. Maintaining a lawn requires time, effort, and money. Not to mention a working green thumb (or at least the basic ability to grow greenery).
Maybe some of these concerns have kept you from having the lush outdoor space that you deserve, or maybe you’ve started to get tired of maintaining the perfect lawn you already have. If so, then artificial grass might be the answer for you.
Here are three reasons why you should go synthetic:
- Less maintenance necessary
Gone are the days of weeding, mowing and trimming.
With artificial grass, very minimal maintenance is required. You won’t need to lug around a mower (or pay someone to do it for you) and you won’t need to spend hours on your hands and knees, pulling out weeds.
All the time you would normally spend keeping your lawn in tip-top condition can go to other things—like actually enjoying the outdoors, just relaxing, or doing other productive tasks.
Of course, maintenance is still required on synthetic turf. Most have a rubber filling underneath to keep the surface soft and give it bounce. This will have to be re-filled occasionally, although certainly not with the regularity of mowing or weeding.
With artificial grass, being embarrassed by an unkempt lawn is not even a possibility.
- Durability and longevity
A synthetic lawn is much less fragile compared to a natural one. After all, artificial grass was originally intended for use in sporting arenas. It was meant to weather the wear and tear caused by sports like football, which inevitably cause damage to natural turf.
If you like to play sports that can be rough on the terrain or simply want a green walkway, then this is the perfect option for you. Not only does it hold up under heavy usage, it also never gets muddy or slippery during the wet season. It’s perfect the whole year round.
You will never have to worry about unsightly patches of dead grass caused by overuse or the weather.
Lastly, because artificial grass doesn’t die, there is no need to replant—a task that is essential for the upkeep of natural grass.
- Save water and the environment
If you live in an area where water is limited or where using sprinklers and hosepipes is banned, then artificial grass is even more advantageous.
Lessening your water consumption not only saves you money, it is also more environment-friendly. In a time where water shortage is felt around the world, reducing consumption is more important than ever.
Also, you won’t need fertilizers and chemicals to maintain synthetic grass, which means you are saving the environment by not adding to the pollution that these chemicals cause.
Artificial grass is the practical choice, both economically and environmentally.
