What are the benefits of artificial grass?

  1. You can save water without sacrificing the health of your lawn
  2. Your yard will maintain its beauty throughout the year
  3. It doesn’t require fertilizer, pesticides, water, or gas-powered tools to thrive
  4. You can cut back on the time required to maintain your lawn
  5. You can save money on resources needed to maintain your lawn

Not bad, right?

Let’s take a closer look at some of the details.

Artificial Turf Doesn’t Need Water or Maintenance

Unlike sod or natural grasses, artificial turf requires no maintenance to maintain it’s beautiful green appearance. No weekly mowing, just lay the turf in place and forget it. When the autumn leaves fall, just sweep them off.

One of the best things about artificial turf is its low-maintenance nature.

It allows you to focus more on the things you enjoy doing in your yard, like hosting parties, barbecues, and spending time with your family.

The Grass that Really Is Greener

Grass and sod will go into a dormant stage in the winter and turn brown and unsightly. If you live in an arid area, you may be experiencing this now as the widespread drought continues to devastate certain areas.

Artificial turf will remain the same color year around and look good no matter which season it is.

It’s Environmentally Friendly

Since the product requires no maintenance from gas or electric-powered lawn equipment, artificial turf is more eco-friendly than even natural grass. A simple sweeping with a broom will clear away most any debris or soil from the tip of the turf and have it looking great in no time.

If you’re interested in the cheapest artificial grass available, recycled artificial grass may be the best option for you – this type of artificial turf is recycled and re-purposed for residential property, effectively keeping waste materials out of landfills.

In addition, artificial grass never needs toxic chemicals to protect its health. Not only are these chemicals dangerous for your kids and pets, who often come into direct contact when playing on the lawn, but they also contaminate runoff water systems and have a negative impact on the bigger picture.

Artificial Landscape Will Save You Money

In addition to the expense of monthly maintenance, including mowing, fertilizers, and sod, natural grass needs water … a lot of it.

Artificial turf doesn’t require any of this, which frees you to use that chunk of your monthly budget elsewhere.

Cost Effective Replacement

When it’s time to replace artificial turf, the process is less expensive and easier than replacing a landscape with grass seeds or sod. If the turf being replaced still has some life in it, it can be recycled for other uses in the landscape, such as creating weed-free garden paths or dog runs, making the product, even more, cost effective to use and replace when needed.

Conclusion

The benefits of artificial turf outweigh those of natural grass, especially if you’re living in an area affected by the devastating water crisis. If you’re interested in saving money, conserving water, and creating a home with exceptional curb appeal, artificial turf may be the option you’re seeking.

While other drought-tolerant landscapes provide similar benefits, there’s one major difference … desirable space.

No on wants to play in a yard with cactus. Likewise, you probably won’t want your kids playing in a yard full of boulders. Artificial turf provides the same beautiful look and bounce as natural grass, without the expense.
