Synthetic grass consists of synthetic plastic fibers intricately woven into a natural pattern that mimics natural grass and a chemical or biological agent to repel moisture. Although you usually find artificial grass in athletic fields, it has gained popularity in commercial and residential landscaping.
Artificial grass for your lawn has more benefits to you than natural grass. Synthetic grass does not require much maintenance, such as mowing or watering. The initial cost of installing artificial grass may make you hesitant, but the future benefits make it a worthy investment. Let us explore the benefits of using artificial grass for your lawn.
They are easy to maintain
The stress-free maintenance of artificial grass is the main benefit you will enjoy when you install artificial grass. You do not need to mow, remove weeds, buy fertilizer or worry about watering your lawn. You will not have any added lawn maintenance chores.
Artificial grass still requires some maintenance, and you cannot forget about it. You need to rinse your grass once a month to remove any dust or debris. You can use a blower or broom to clean out fallen leaves and twigs.
Artificial grass is free of pests and weeds
Natural grass is fertile grounds for weeds and pests to grow, and no matter how many products you use, they keep on growing. Taking care of pests and weeding requires time and money. You will also need to work hard and put in several days’ work to pull out weeds in your lawn.
Artificial grass is the long-term practical solution to grass without weeds and pests. Synthetic grass does not grow weeds and repels pests, so you will not have to deal with them again.
Artificial grass is safe for your children and pets
Most people use chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides in the maintenance of natural grass. These chemicals can be toxic, and therefore, they are not safe for your children and pets.
Artificial grass does not need the application of any chemicals to maintain. You can have peace of mind knowing that your pets and children are safe when playing and having fun on the lawn.
Artificial grass is not messy
Mud and puddles accumulate on natural grass lawns after watering or your lawn floods during heavy rains. Your house also gets messy as your children and pets track mud inside the house from outside.
You will not have a muddy mess with artificial grass because you do not water it. You do not have to worry about flooding either because the landscapers smooth out the ground before installation. We also install draining channels to remove excess water.
Artificial grass is perfect for dry areas
Synthetic grass only needs occasional cleaning with water to get rid of accumulated dust and debris, which is ideal and practical if you live in a place with little rainfall or you experience frequent water shortages.
We should all try to save and conserve water, and artificial grass is ideal if you want a more sustainable solution. Synthetic grass will keep your monthly water bill low and help you avoid any water restriction fines.
Artificial grass is always green and looks fresh
Most people find the most challenging part of growing natural grass is controlling the bald spots and maintaining a fresh and green look throughout the year. Natural grass forms bare spots and brown patches due to foot traffic, fungus, and other pressures.
Artificial grass is not worn by pressure or destroyed by fungus or bacteria. You will not worry about brown patches or bare spots happening with artificial grass. Your lawn will not be affected by seasonal changes, and you will be the envy of your neighbors.
