So you’ve heard about artificial lawns but never really given them a second thought.
You’ve spent years cultivating your lawn and making it as lush and as beautiful as you can. And, though it means a lot of hard work and piles of cash to maintain, this is how you’ve always done it.
But just because something has always been done, a certain way doesn’t mean it has to continue in this manner for all time. Artificial lawns have come a long way since they first burst onto the scene, with technology making them a worthwhile alternative to the traditional American lawn.
Truth be told, artificial lawns and natural ones both have their advantages, and not every lawn is right for every homeowner. But artificial or “fake” lawns are worthy of consideration if creating a lush green landscape is on your to-do list.
Different places have different climates; Texas, for instance, is very dry, and artificial lawns work well in South Texas.
A few ways artificial lawns could be a better option for you and your family:
They Don’t Need Watering
Keeping that beautiful lawn nice and green often means a lot of water. This can not only be incredibly time-consuming but can also cost a deal of money.
Installing an artificial lawn means not having to worry about sprinklers and timers and keeping those lawns nice and moist.
An artificial lawn also means saving gallons of water per year, which means you’re not only saving money, but you’re also conserving water and helping the environment.
Not only will your lawn be green and beautiful, but it will be that way literally overnight. Artificial lawns can usually be installed in just a couple of days, depending on the size and the terrain, and they look good from Day One.
Your neighbors will wonder how you got such a beautiful lawn so quickly. And they likely won’t know it’s fake unless you actually open your mouth and admit it.
How often have you seen a beautiful lawn only to come across areas where the family dog has gone on a digging frenzy, or the kids have created a “mud pie station?”
This won’t happen with an artificial lawn, which means it will remain fresh and beautiful well into the future. No ragged or patchy areas to be found on your lawn! This is because artificial lawns are made out of durable materials.
So let the kids run around, allow the dog to do his thing, and just enjoy the backyard that you’ve created.
No Fertilizers Or Pesticides
Artificial lawns don’t require any chemicals or pesticides that can be harmful for you to keep them looking their best, which equates to being much better for the environment.
Most artificial grass is also made from recycled materials, things that would otherwise be clogging up the nation’s landfills. Again, much better for the environment.
So put the weed killers, the toxic pesticides, and the other stuff away for good by installing an artificial lawn on your property today.
No More Maintenance
You can officially retire the lawnmower if you have an artificial lawn, which means more quality time to spend with the family during the warm summer months.
Artificial lawns are virtually maintenance-free. No more mowing, weeding, watering, or other tasks that used to take up so much of your time during the summer.
You can also free up more room in your garage or shed for other things. So that’s a bonus!
