A Look At Reasons To Consider Installing Artificial Grass
When you consider the cost of maintaining a beautiful, healthy, manicured lawn you begin to realize that the cost of upkeep is likely to be rather high. You will need to purchase pesticides and other chemicals that damage the environment, as well as various types of garden equipment. Also you will need to have the wherewithal to devote time and effort into keeping the lawn looking good throughout the year.
On the other hand, you could choose to go the synthetic route instead. With artificial grass you can have that beautiful, lush lawn all year round. You will also save money, because you will not need to purchase the upkeep products that you would need for a real grass lawn. The technology as far as fake grass goes, has come quite far since the 1960s and ’70s, which is when it was first introduced. Nowadays, an artificial lawn can boast cutting-edge technology. Throw in the fact that they are also eco-friendly and you have a clear winner, as far as many people are concerned.
Modern fake grass looks incredibly realistic and has come a long way since the ’60s and ’70s. It is also much easier to maintain, which is great news for those of us who simply do not have the time to mow, water, and fertilize the lawn on a regular basis. Below are some of the top reasons why you should consider installing a fake lawn rather than a real one:
1. Fake Grass Is Almost Maintenance Free
Depending on the landscape it can be practically impossible to find the perfect real grass option that is also low-maintenance. Natural grass requires watering, mowing, weeding, and so on, which means you know what you will be doing some weekends! Fake turf is a low-maintenance option that will look great any time of the year. You will no longer need all your lawn equipment and you can spend your weekends enjoying your lawn instead of working on it.
2. Fake Grass Is Durable
When you have real grass lawns you know that there are bound to be areas that will look worn and/or bare thanks to foot traffic and weather conditions. However, artificial lawns are designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, which is why they are ideal for schoolyards, stadiums, playgrounds, and so on. You also do not have to worry about whether the fake grass is safe for your children and pets, either, because the best ones are non-toxic.
3. Fake Grass Is Versatile
Fake grass products are all but impervious to weather conditions. That means that you will find the perfect fake grass product no matter what conditions you require it for.
4. Fake Grass Is Eco-Friendly
Natural grass requires toxic fertilizers and chemicals which is not good for the environment. When you choose synthetic lawn instead, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have not damaged the environment at all. You can also find fake grass that is made from sustainable and recycled products.
5. Fake Grass Looks Good, Too
Not only is synthetic turf low on maintenance, versatile, durable, eco-friendly, saves you time, and saves you money, but it is also good to look at. Picture some of the world’s best golf courses. Did you know that some are already made with fake turf? Your synthetic lawn should look natural and lush throughout the year.
