If you live in a dry climate where water rationing is the norm, real grass lawns can become an environmental nightmare. In Texas during our summer months, we consume millions of gallons of drinkable water, dumped onto our lawns every day, year-round.
Also consider the environmental impact of all of those gas-powered mowers whining away, cutting that lushly watered grass, while putting 11 times more pollution than an automobile into the air every hour. The carbon footprint of a real Texas lawn is enormous.
Better Alternative to Real Grass – Synthetic Turf
You’ve probably seen on Houzz lately a surge of landscape designers using more succulents, drought-tolerant trees, and stunning green rectangles of perfectly groomed lawns. And those lawns are beautifully landscaped with synthetic grass and that fake grass looks gorgeously real.
Long gone are the days of “Astroturf”. The synthetic grass products have become very sophisticated replicas of a real grass lawn. Long, smooth blades of grass that look exactly like real grass, but happen to be a technologically advanced material. It is placed like carpet over prepared ground. You can hose it off sometimes, and it drains itself. You no longer have to mow, water regularly, reseed, or fertilize, and it pays for itself in a few years. Most importantly, there is the peace of mind of having a well manicured lawn that conserves water and is easy on the environment. We give you a better alternative to real grass!
How does it work?
If you’re having a hard time grasping how this synthetic grass can replace your real lawn, check out our step-by-step guide on how it works. And you have options. You can get a synthetic lawn that’s late-summer long, or putting-green short, or somewhere in between. You can get dark green or light green, depending on the kind of grass that grows near you. You can even choose the color of the springy underlayer. Some have variegated strands ― some dark, some light ― and looks especially real.
Trust us when we tell you that people will stop and stare, and say how magnificent your lawn is. And you don’t have to tell anyone it’s fake.
