Homeowners are always on the lookout for ways to improve their home – whether it has to do with saving money, expanding the space, or building the value of the property. In light of the drought, a lot of homeowners are taking advantage of water rebates by improving the landscaping of their property with artificial lawn. An artificial lawn may not have crossed your mind as a good idea yet, but considering it will save you money, save you time, and offer that beautiful curb appeal your property needs to maintain its value, it’s worth the consideration.
It’s become a popular movement among those in dry regions of the country for a variety of reasons – some want to help save water, others want to prevent the value of their property from decreasing due to the water restrictions and resulting brown lawn.
Today, we wanted to highlight some of the most common reasons our customers decided to install artificial lawn.
Here are just a few of them:
- Doesn’t require water
- Doesn’t require fertilizer
- Doesn’t require mowing
- Doesn’t require insecticides
- Doesn’t require pesticides
Better for the Environment
If you are environmentally conscious, an artificial lawn can be a good way to walk the talk. Artificial lawns don’t require any water and there is no need to put any fertilizer, weed killer or insecticide on them.
No Need to Mow, Fertilize, or Otherwise Maintain Your Lawn
In addition to not having to water or fertilize your artificial lawn, you don’t have to mow it either, or do edging or weed whacking. If you have trees planted around the lawn, raking leaves will be easier when the need arises.
Get the Perfect Length
If you have a natural lawn and you like it a certain height, you have to set your lawnmower accordingly and then mow as often as necessary to keep it that way. With an artificial lawn, though, you can select the length you want — within reason — and your lawn will stay that way year round.
Artificial Lawn Stays Green All the Time
Another big advantage of an artificial lawn is that it stays green all the time. You don’t have to worry about brown, dormant grass during the winter, nor do you have to worry about your lawn dying if there is a drought.
Making improvements to your home is important as a homeowner. You take pride in your home, because that’s where you and your family live and grow. As the climate continues to keep us guessing, it’s critical we make decisions today that create a better future for tomorrow.
Installing an artificial lawn saves you money month after month, avoids expensive fines from water restrictions, and makes your home a beautiful spot in the community your neighbors will remember … especially as other lawns brown and wither away.
