Why are more people opting for artificial grass?
There are many advantages to using synthetic turf over normal turf. It’s low maintenance, uniform good looks and durability are just the start.
We are all leading busy lives these days and most of us don’t wish to spend our weekends weeding, mowing and watering. Maintaining the look and feel of natural grass is time consuming and costly. Water costs have increased significantly over the last 5 years and there is no sign of that trend changing. The rate we are charged for our water usage increases with the amount we use. The higher our usage, the higher the rate.
Many people who are looking for a better way of maintaining their landscape are put off by the initial artificial lawns cost without giving much thought to the expense of keeping natural turf to the same standard. Lawns take a significant amount of water to stay healthy. Whilst the upfront cost of artificial turf is higher, the ongoing costs are minimal.
Artificial grass is ideal for those hard to cover areas or areas with poor soil quality, or just because you are time poor and yet still want great looking lawn. Natural turf struggles in heavily shaded areas and can be hard to mow and maintain in small back yards.
Synthetic lawn is child friendly. It is a non-abrasive surface which is ideal for a child’s play area. With no natural food source, bugs, ants, spiders and other creepy crawlies tend to reside elsewhere. The turfed area is a soft, safe and prickle free surface for little footsies to enjoy.
Many people ask how the artificial grass is for dogs and cats. We have had many successful installations in homes with pets. The turf is safe for dogs and cats. It is not prone to being dug like natural grass but does need a regular hose down. There are products such as Turfresh that can assist to break down the residue from your pets although we are rarely asked for it. These products help eliminate pet urine odour, are non-toxic and biodegradable and safe for both kids and pets.
An instant and lush looking garden effect is created using synthetic grass. There is no waiting for the lawn to fill in using large amounts of water. And of course there is no need for a reticulation system, Whilst your neighbours may be worried about watering days and regulations, you will be relaxing knowing your turf does not require this attention.
