As the world is becoming more aware of our footprint on the environment, water saving options like fake grass lawns are increasing in popularity.
Natural lawns also require a ton of maintenance. Too busy to garden or simply don’t like gardening? This option is also great for folks that don’t want to put the time and money into weeding, fertilizing, watering, and mowing a natural lawn.
Replacing your real grass lawn or yard can save you a ton of money over the years because of these time-consuming labor and supply costs. Let’s break it down.
Thought Co, a lifelong learning website, states that artificial grass was first invented in the 1960s.
Fast forward to today, and artificial grass has come a long way. It’s improved even more and is accessible to the average homeowner, not just sports arenas.
Save Money In These Four Ways With Fake Grass
Installing fake grass comes with a significantly higher cost than installing regular sod. However, with minimal maintenance, quality fake grass can last up to 20 years, saving you big money and even paying for itself over time.
No Use Fertilizer
Without the need to actually grow the grass on your lawn, you have no need to use chemical filled fertilizer.
Fertilizer stinks. It can also be bad for the environment and the health of your family. Not to mention, it can get pretty expensive over the years. With artificial grass, you can avoid the need for fertilizer completely.Weeding
No Weeding Required
In addition to not needing fertilizer, fake grass won’t grow weeds! Spending hours weeding can be hard on your back over time and hiring expensive gardeners to take care of pesky weeds can be tough on your wallet.
Enjoy your grass without the irritation and hassle of weeds. You can also skip the weed blocking chemicals that are dangerous for our health and the health of pets!
Mowing Isn’t Necessary
Perhaps the loudest and most annoying thing your neighbors do is mow the lawn.
Mowing is also horrible for the environment. Mowers and similar tools, like leaf blowers, typically use gasoline to run so they have emissions just like cars.
Some say the by-products of mowers and leaf blowers are even worse than cars. Keep you and your neighbors happy and healthy by skipping the mower.
Watering Is a Thing of the Past!
It’s a good idea to rinse your fake grass every once in a while for dust. If you have pets, it’s especially important to rinse regularly to prevent smells and bacteria growth.
However, even with pets, the amount of water used on turf is significantly less than the water you need to keep a real grass lawn alive and pretty. Save water, both for the environment and your wallet.
Multi-turf can help you achieve your no mess, no fuss lawn for sport and leisure.
