The advantages are plain and simple. From saving money to saving time, especially on lawn maintenance, and it can also improve lifestyle and help with environmental issues. Here are some benefits:
There are a wide range of artificial grass products ideal for all landscaping needs, for both residential and commercial properties.
An Artificial lawn looks and feels just like well maintained natural grass all year round even during the harshest of British climates. There are fewer of the drawbacks associated with natural grass such as herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and watering.
Artificial grass needs much less of the maintenance of natural grass which, for example, requires care every day during summer, and you can spend your time doing other things than mowing and watering.
It’s more a matter of keeping clean than maintaining.
• Remove organic materials from the surface, typically by using a leaf blower.
• A stiff, natural bristle broom can be used to “fluff” high traffic areas.
• In case of turf with sand infill, you may have to add some sand infill once a year in high usage areas.
Artificial grass installations have helped save millions of litres of water. Also, operating a lawnmower for one hour emits the same amount of pollutants as driving a car 100 kilometres. Year after year, millions of kilos of chemicals are used to upkeep grass lawns. With Artificial grass, you get the aesthetic value of a perfectly maintained grass lawn without the environmental drawbacks of natural grass.
