Artificial Grass - Take Proper Care of your Lawn

Jason Young - Saturday, April 02, 2016

Taking care of your lawn can cost a lot of money, time, and effort. You need the proper tools and materials just to keep it green. Why not opt for artificial grass? You might be a little apprehensive using artificial grass, but reading more about it will make you quickly realise its many benefits. Here are just some of them:

  • Highly durable – Say goodbye to potholes or dead patches on your lawn. You can remove the tacky “keep off the grass” sign, too. Artificial grass is very durable and will not cause your lawn to become muddy when it gets wet. You don’t have to worry about your pet’s messy paw prints on the floor, either. That’s one chore to cross off your list.
  • Light maintenance – Forget getting down on your knees to pull out weeds and cut the grass. You also won’t need a lawn mower. Artificial grass is very practical if you don’t have time to maintain natural grass.
  • Saves the environment (and money!) – You don’t need to spray harmful pesticides on your lawn. There’s no need to apply fertilisers either. You hit two birds with one stone as artificial grass is also made from recycled materials.
  • Reduce water bills – According to research, lawn irrigation is responsible for about 75% of household water bills. Artificial grass does not need water to stay green. You can lower your water bills and not have to worry about installing an irrigation system.
  • Child and pet-friendly – One of the worst things about natural grass is its pollen. You might have experienced allergies during early summer or late spring. Your kids and your pets will be safe from allergies—even if they roll around on the lawn—if you opt for artificial grass.
