Fake grass just keeps getting better and better as the years go by. A high-quality artificial grass is not only easy to maintain, but it also feels almost the same as the real thing. What was once like industrial carpeting that was all stiff and nubby is a thing of the past.
What makes fake grass so much better now? The techniques for manufacturing the grass have come a long way. This is an economical and environmentally sound product that offers some very appealing benefits. It used to be something that you would only find used at a large club for sports, but now you might see it in your neighbour’s yard as well.
Although there are numerous advantages to using artificial grass, these are the main groups.
The way it makes your life easier is a major benefit. Everyone is trying to manage extremely busy lives nowadays. Mowing the lawn or planting grass seed is just another time-consuming task that, let’s face it, can eat up two to three hours of your already stressful day. The ease of having fake grass is especially valuable to those who are not able to physically care for their lawns and to those who own vacation homes. This will save the homeowners trips to the house just to do lawn maintenance.
Then there is the environment. Watering and planting grass seed becomes more and more of a problem these days. The days are getting warmer, and the restrictions on the usage of water are becoming increasingly more severe.
Fake grass has no need for lawn mowers which is good for the environment because lawnmowers use gas that pollutes the air. Also, they have no need for watering which saves on water usage.
When it comes to pets, fake grass can be kept clean, and a dog cannot dig it up or track mud into the house. This is excellent for dog kennels. The area around swimming pools usually ends up getting muddy because of the water that is splashed from the pool. With no mud or dust and dirt near the pool area, the water stays cleaner, and the grass is always green no matter the weather.
With fake grass, the high traffic areas of your yard will not end up in bald patches that look bad and become mud puddles. The grass can be used to blend into other areas and solve this problem. If you have a roof garden that cannot hold natural grass, then use artificial grass as an excellent addition. It also means there is no need to worry about getting rid of grass clippings.
The best benefit of synthetic grass is that most of it today is made of polyethene and contains no nylon. This makes it completely recyclable and environmentally-friendly.
