Artificial Grass Is King of the Lawns: a Look at the Benefits

by Tom Grant on Mar 10, 2014

To talk about the benefits of artificial grass would to beat the same drum over and over again. It’s been discussed countless times on different platforms. But just like talking about health, fitness and daily cardio, discussing the benefits of fake grass for lawns never gets old. People need to be constantly reminded of why they should invest in artificial grass for their back yard or front porch. The same applies to businesses organisations and commercial entities, even schools. Artificial grass ranks as one of the top most sought after home improvement or office improvement commodities today.

In today’s post, we will discuss in detail the very core benefits of artificial grass that give it such a distinct edge over its natural counterparts. These are the undeniable, irrefutable, undisputed benefits of fake grass that have made a believer out of the most stubborn of critics.

No Need to Water

There is nothing wrong with having a natural landscape. The only drawback to most people is that they require constant maintenance and upkeep. Water is one of them. Natural grass needs to be watered every other day if not daily. Most people don’t have the time to do that on a daily basis. And while a home sprinkler system can do that trick, it is very expensive to install and requires maintenance itself. So people are left with looking after the very equipment that looks after their backyard or front porch. There is no such dilemma with fake grass. It just needs to be installed properly. It takes over from then on. Many people regard this as the best reason to have an artificial lawn.

Aesthetically Pleasing

The biggest vote of appreciation for artificial grass lies not in its ability to sustain itself without water but in the fact that it looks 100% like its natural counterpart. They believe they are looking at lush green natural grass while in fact it is fake grass. It is aesthetically very pleasing to the eye compared to traditional grass. They add to the beauty of a landscape like none other; one of the reasons that led to their great popularity in the first place. Their unique architecture and material they are comprised of makes them a great addition to any lawn.

Remain Green All Year Long

Natural grass wears out much quicker than artificial grass. Moreover, depending on the season it will dry up, change colour and even die. There are no such issues with artificial grass. It maintains its lush green look the entire year and has the capacity to withstand the harshest of weather conditions such as heavy snow or scorching heat. Regular grass in contrast burns under high temperatures, and wilts and becomes muddy and patchy in winter. Homeowners have the peace of mind that their landscape will remain in good condition throughout the year.

Very Little Maintenance

No need to water, no need to mow and no need to plant or cut anything which means no more spending the weekend sorting out the lawn. Traditional grass requires sufficient amount of sunlight, planting flowers, seeds and water to flourish not to forget trimming. The low maintenance features makes artificial grass very popular and cost effective.

Environment Friendly

There is a good reason environmentalists are singing praises for this lawn innovation. Artificial grass is 100% eco-friendly and doesn’t have any harmful side effects or reactions. It’s perfectly safe for people of all ages including children. Traditional grass comes with a fair share of drawbacks such as insects and bugs. They require the spraying of pesticides to keep the grass fertile and insect free. This means that children will have to limit their time when the garden is being sprayed. Artificial grass eliminates the need for pesticides thereby making it more cost effective, and environment friendly.

There is no denying that artificial grass has a lot going for it. Specialist suppliers like Artificial Lawn offer installation advice and all the information you would need. Even builders are using it in the design layout of the home exterior. Governments and non-profit organisations are using them in their landscape. School and Universities are eagerly applying it to their landscape. It’s a great product for practically any industry making it hard to deny the benefits of artificial grass. Homeowners and even business establishments should definitely think about getting them for their home or building exterior.
