5 ADVANTAGES OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS
The plan for anyone who chooses to move into the house is to have a perfect lawn to walk on in the morning with bare feet, possibly coffee in hand. From dream to reality is not just one step at all, but the opposite. Natural grass is difficult to maintain, it must be constantly mowed, and watered almost daily, not to mention the elimination of weeds or ticks.
If you don’t have time to take care of your lawn, then it will be almost impossible to keep it in good condition, so the option of choosing artificial grass becomes one worth considering. Here are the main advantages for which artificial turf is gaining ground:
1. It always looks perfect
Unlike natural grass, artificial grass does not dry out if it is too hot or dry. Synthetic turf will always have the same deep green colour, the same texture and blade height, and always look as fresh as a fresh blade of grass. You don’t have to deal with the growth of weeds and other harmful plants like natural grass.
2. It should not be watered
If time is your number 1 concern, then you should consider artificial turf. Even if there are artificial irrigation systems that can be programmed at time intervals, the investment may not be worth it. With artificial grass, you can go on vacation peacefully without worrying that the lawn will dry out or that it needs to be mowed.
3. It is easy to maintain
As I mentioned before, artificial grass has a great advantage that it does not need to be watered or mowed, but it also does not require special maintenance, since it is a plastic material. Depending on where it is installed and the surface decorated with artificial grass, all you need to do is vacuum it to remove dust and wash it gently with the water hose, without the need for other cleaning products. Or you can wash only the areas that have become dirty – just like you would with a regular carpet or rug.
4. It has a long lifespan
Quality artificial grass can last well even 25 years if properly maintained. The texture of synthetic grass does not deteriorate from steps or other common external aggressions. Therefore, it is a long-term investment.
5. Resists all weather conditions
During rain, a synthetic grass field is well drained, so water does not accumulate in the synthetic grass, and puddles or mud will not form in the garden. Whereas, during drought, the heat does not affect the blade of grass as it does with natural turf.
