Top Benefits of Artificial Turf for Garden Lawns
More and more homeowners across Hampshire and Surrey like the idea of trading in their living lawn for an artificial one. What is the reason for so many people turning to fake grass? The answer is simple-the benefits of artificial turf.
Below we have compiled the top benefits of artificial turf.
Artificial Turf Saves Water and Money
Synthetic grass allows homeowners to save significantly on their water bills. During the warmer months, the real lawn requires regular watering ( typically in the early morning and late evening) to remain green, healthy and lush. The artificial lawn never needs water, helping to save thousands of litres of tap water. Some people might say, yes, but it cost more money to install it than real grass. Without a doubt, the upfront cost of artificial grass is worth it for all the resulting benefits and usually recovers within a few years by reducing the need for water and lawn maintenance costs.
Artificial Turf is low Maintenance
Another advantage of artificial turf is low maintenance. Whereas in summertime natural lawn needs care almost every day, artificial turf requires minimum upkeep. It is not maintenance, it is more cleaning (i.e. blowing leaves, getting rid of pet debris). There is no need to trim the edges or weed. Just imagine yourself enjoying your garden and spending all that time on other activities instead of having to water or mow the lawn. Installed today artificial grass lets to forget about it for at least five to ten years. It easily withstands harsh weathers and sports activities your children love. You only need to repair or replace it if it is torn or punctured.
Artificial Turf is Safe for Children and Pets
When the weather is nice, children love to play outside in the garden. Kids can have hours of fun without the risk of injury on artificial grass. It is soft and non-abrasive and does not graze young skin. There are some types of fake grass available in the market that contain an extra fibre fill layer and thatch structure for an extra soft landing, to provide children hours of fun on safe ground.
If you own a pet and worry about how your animal will react to artificial turf, you can rest assured that fake grass is completely safe for pets to run around and play on. It needs to pass independent safety tests before ends up on the shop shelf.
Artificial Turf is Environment Friendly
We live in times when nothing is 100% environmentally friendly. When it comes to the benefits of artificial turf, there are plenty of surprising ways artificial grass is greener than its natural counterpart. It eliminates the use of harmful pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides and other chemicals. It remains lush, green and toxin-free, without having a disastrous effect on the local environment.
Artificial Turf Adds Aesthetic Appeal to Any Garden
For many people, the garden is one of the main factors in how appealing property is. Quality and ultra-realistic artificial grass particularly designed for residential lawns is versatile, improves the appearance of any outdoor area, and feels like well maintained natural grass all year round. It looks aesthetically pleasing in all types of weather all year round. In addition to that, it is much easier to design a garden with artificial grass in comparison to the naturally growing turf as there is no need to rely on even growth.
Artificial Turf is Durable
Amongst all the benefits of artificial grass, durability plays a significant role. With appropriate installation, it has a life expectancy of around 15 years through typical use.
