Artificial grass, also known as artificial turf, or synthetic grass, has many qualities when compared with real grass. Think “fake grass” is a poor option? Think again! The benefits of a synthetic lawn are numerous. Here are 4 reasons to switch today:
1. Pets and kids are safe
You don’t need to worry about artificial grass harming your children or pets in any way. Our quality turf is pesticide and chemical free, unlike some natural grass that may contain these harmful chemicals. Artificial grass is soft and doesn’t have burrs, saving you having to pick them off your children’s clothes or your pet’s fur. Synthetic grass also stays relatively dry due to it’s excellent drainage, so there won’t be any muddy patches for the kids or pets to get dirty in.
2. Aussie conditions
We all know how harsh the Australian sun can be, and how it affects natural lawns. While natural lawns do look good if they’re well maintained, it does take a lot of work getting it to stay looking the way you want it too. Artificial grass is not affected by dry conditions and won’t fade in the sun, so your lawn looks beautiful at any time of year.
3. Low Maintenance
You might not believe it, but artificial grass is low maintenance, making ideal for our busy lifestyles. We all know life can be a little hectic at times, and sometimes there’s no time to for the upkeep of our lawns. Synthetic grass doesn’t grow, it remains at the same length as the day it was installed. This means it doesn’t require any edging, trimming or mowing, yet it stays green all year round. You don’t need to spend precious time watering it or fertilising it, leaving you with more time to spend doing the things you love.
4. A real money saver
Let’s face it, we could all do with saving money, and our artificial grass will help you do just that. Once the initial cost of buying and installing the turf is done, you’ll see the savings in the long term. You won’t need to buy fertiliser, lawn mower or trimmer. This takes away the need to pay for petrol and oil too! Tired of having to water the lawn to keep it looking lush and green? There’s no need for that with artificial grass. Not only will it save you money on your water bill, but in our drought stricken times when we have active water restrictions, your lawn will still look well cared for.
