Why You Should Switch To Artificial Grass

on August 05 at 08:00 PM

Seriously considering synthetic grass for your home or business? Artificial grass has been around for some time. It all began with artificial turf installed in a stadium back in 1967. Since then, developers have pushed the boundaries with synthetic materials. They have made synthetic grass so close to the real thing you might be hard pressed to tell the difference unless you examined it up close at eye level. 


There are several advantages to choosing artificial grass & synthetic turf for your lawn or your commercial property. Let’s review a few of those below.

 

No Mowing


Do you hate dragging out the lawn mower, filling it with gas, and making repairs when needed? If you're like many homeowners, the answer is yes. But you don't have to spend another moment mowing your lawn when you choose artificial turf. This is likely one of the biggest advantages property owners love about synthetic grass. Not having to mow also means you save a ton of time.

 

No Grass Pollen


Are you allergic to grass pollen? It could be hell going outside in your own yard when you have traditional grass. But, that can all change with artificial turf. There is no pollen, which means no aggravated allergies. Just as there is no grass pollen, there are also no microbes. This can be an advantage or disadvantage, depending on how you look at it. If you have pets that like to play outside and use grass as a potty room, not having microbes can lead to the artificial grass being dirty and germy. But you can wash away pet urine and feces with a garden hose and cleaner.

 

No Equipment Needed


Because there is no weed eating or grass mowing, you also don't need any equipment. This can save you a ton of money now and in the long run. Sometimes it can even outweigh the cost of having artificial turf installed. If you purchase a lawn mower for $2,000, you could theoretically put that towards the cost of your synthetic grass installation.

 

Great Investment


Artificial grass is not only an excellent choice for your home but a great investment. Should you choose to sell your home, having synthetic grass is a huge turn-on for potential buyers. Like you, they will be drawn to the advantages, such as not having to mow the grass and having a beautiful yard year-round without lifting a finger to do so.
