Do you want to have a green surrounding but do not have time to maintain a lawn? Synthetic turf may be the solution for you.
While people buy homes and have enough yardage around to have a lawn and plant trees and shrubs, they may be reluctant to go for grass lawns because it requires a high level of maintenance. Overgrown grass lawns are unappealing, a haven for insects, and are not weatherproof. You may have to commit to a few hours each week for weeding and mowing, hours you may want to spend on something else.
Artificial Turf To The Rescue
Synthetic lawns are game-changers. They come with so many benefits that you would be hard-pressed to find good reasons for natural grass.
Maintenance: It is true that cleaning and grooming will still be necessary; it is still easier than natural lawns. Hosing down the turf to remove dirt, using a rake to remove leaves and other debris caused by the wind, and you may need a hard brush to straighten the turf with some regularity.
Durability: The material in synthetic turf is polyethylene. Polyethylene is soft and can resist wear and tear longer making artificial turf long-lasting.
Cost-saving: Synthetic turf means there is no money going towards watering, fertilizing, and mowing. Monthly utility bills will be lower.
Eco-friendly: As artificial turf requires no pesticides, you are free from chemicals. Since mowing that requires electricity is no longer needed, you also consume less energy preventing air pollution and fuel waste.
Mud-free: Once the artificial turf is laid out evenly, you are free from muddy prints and patches. Your pets cannot dig up holes in the turf, and rain cannot cause splattered mud all around.
Safe from germs: With the availability of anti-bacterial grass, artificial turf can keep the lawn germs and bacteria-free making it safe for pets and children.
Where Can You Use Artificial Turf
Urban dwellers would have little to no access to greenery, even if they lived in homes instead of apartments. A lawn made of synthetic turf will give them some greenery all year round while requiring minimal effort from them.
Schools and universities using synthetic turf will save on funds that can be spent elsewhere. These are places that endure a lot of foot traffic and are open to various sports activities throughout the year. Having a natural grass lawn will require a greater level of maintenance with such extensive use. Therefore, these spaces are better served with artificial turf.
