Everyone wants a nice, green lawn that helps to make their property pop. Many people have a natural lawn to get that look, but artificial turf is certainly making itself known. Synthetic grass is a safe choice that looks like a natural lawn. In the past, synthetic grass didn’t always get the desired look or resiliency of a natural lawn, but it has changed a lot over the years! It’s also environmentally friendly in a number of ways.
It Saves Water
Keeping a natural lawn green can require a lot of water on a regular basis. With artificial grass, there’s rarely a need to use any water on it and can help save money on water bills. However, if pet waste gets on it, you might want to hose it off. If you’re worried about any animal needs with your lawn, talk to your local landscape designer and see which solution works best for you!
It Doesn’t Need Fertilizers
When you have a natural lawn, you will need to treat it to keep it healthy. This includes herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, and more. When these chemicals get washed away by rainwater or sprinklers, they can end up in the waterways in the area. This can adversely affect both plants and animals in the area. These chemicals can also leach into the groundwater and end up in the area’s drinking water. With synthetic grass, you don’t need any of those chemicals. Instead, the turf will keep weeds at bay and won’t attract a lot of insects.
Far Fewer Pests
When you have synthetic grass, you won’t have all of the pests around your property that you would with a natural lawn. With artificial turf, it won’t attract the same amount of insects, and it won’t get overgrown and encourage rodents to live in it. This keeps pests away without you needing to spray the area for pests. This lowers the amount of toxic chemicals in the environment, and it may even mean that you need to spray fewer of them in the house.
Produce Fewer Carbon Emissions
When you have a lawn that doesn’t grow, you don’t need to mow the lawn anymore. While this is a big draw in itself, it also means that there will be fewer carbon emissions from running a lawnmower. You will have less need for using power because there is no need for plugging in an edger or clipper.
