Grass is an essential part of landscaping your backyard.
If you think of landscaping like painting, grass is almost like the canvas on which the landscaper conceives and creates their masterpiece.
Unfortunately, sometimes planting and cultivating real grass for a yard or campus may be difficult, impractical or downright impossible. Maybe the climate or weather is not conducive to growing grass in large, solid patches.
Perhaps the ground itself is inhospitable for plating.
Or maybe the way in which the lawn will be used would make upkeep of the grass too frequent and expensive to be viable.
In all of these cases, the solution lies in the installation of artificial grass. Whether you choose this option out of necessity or convenience, the benefits of artificial grass are many.
Artificial Grass Is Affordable
In many ways, artificial turf is much more cost effective than planting real, living grass. It is cheaper to buy the rolls in the first place, installation is far simpler than planting and thus costs far less and maintenance is also easier, requiring fewer tools and less investment of time.
Artificial grass helps save money both up front and in the long run.
Real grass must be prepared against and protected from a number of different things. While it is first growing, it cannot be walked on, touched or get too much heat, cold or rain.
Once it has established itself, real grass must still be watered, sprayed for pests, protected from pets eating it, digging through it and leaving their waste on it and even needs to occasionally be re-planted.
By comparison, Otherwise, maintenance is virtually unnecessary.
Artificial grass has many uses, from residential yards to sports fields. What’s more, its installation is not permanent. Rolls of turf can be moved, re-cut and rearranged to suit changing landscapes or re-locations.
If you’re working on a project in a dry area, landscaping with artificial grass may be a viable solution.
