Synthetic Grass Is The Best Option For A Beautiful Lawn

Achieving a beautiful lawn that has that deep green color and is thick and lush without a weed in sight is what just about any homeowner wants to have in front of their homes. Some secretly compete with their neighbor’s lawns and some would even say that having a perfect lawn is a part of the American dream. Unfortunately, that part of the American dream requires a huge amount of effort to achieve. However, there is a simple solution that will have your lawn looking the best that it can all year round. Just imagine yourself finally having and enjoying a perfect lawn instead of working constantly to have it. Here are some benefits of having synthetic grass instead of the lawn you have now that might make you think twice about firing up the lawnmower, weed eater, edger and blower again.

Curb Appeal

 Whether it is the hottest day of the summer or below freezing in a blizzard that’s threatening to leave three feet of snow on the ground, artificial lawns can withstand the extremes of weather conditions and everything in between. Synthetic turf is very durable and will last for years to come. It continues to stay green all year-round and most artificial lawns that have been developed in recent years are so realistic that it resembles a real lawn. 

Safe For Children and Pets

 Since synthetic turf stays looking lush and holds it’s color every day of the year, it doesn’t require the nutrients and chemicals that a natural lawn demand if you want it to look good. So you can say goodbye to that big bag of fertilizer you have been buying three to four times a year. Synthetic lawn material is also known for having fewer pest issues as it doesn’t provide much of a habitat or food for many bugs so the pesticides can go too since you won’t be needing it. Not only is this benefit good for the environment but it’s also leaving money you would have spent on fertilizers and pesticides in your wallet for you to do other things with.


 Synthetic turf is so low maintenance that it’s just about no maintenance at all. You would be able to toss your lawnmower in the trash because you’d never need it again. Synthetic turf isn’t going to grow like a natural lawn does so instead of going outside to have to do a chore you have done over and over again in the heat of every summer since you can remember, you’ll find yourself going outside to relax and enjoy your perfect looking lawn instead. Maybe throwing your trusty lawnmower in the trash is a little harsh and you’ll choose to give it away to someone who needs it like the neighbor you’ve been secretly competing with for years or anyone else who is still growing grass. However, you won’t be any more so regardless of what you decide to do with your lawnmower, fertilizers, and pesticides you still won’t ever need it but who doesn’t like having more space in the garage?

Watering Is Not Required

 Natural lawns need to be watered regularly. Usually early in the morning and late in the evening is ideal for watering a natural lawn. Some homeowners have installed sprinkler systems that run on a timer to make this less of a hassle for them but what about when it rains and pours for most of the day? Do you let your sprinklers run anyway and risk drowning your lawn and plants or do you go out to the sprinkler systems timer and turn it off instead? If you chose to turn it off instead, will you remember to set it back to its normal schedule because if not, your lawn could go thirsty for the next few days until you realize that your sprinkler system is still set to off from when you turned it off due to the weather. There’s good news for those with synthetic turf though! There is no need to water it at all so who cares if it rained all day today and didn’t for the rest of the week because your synthetic turf lawn also eliminates that hassle too! Not to mention the significant reduction you will have no other choice but to notice in your water bill.

 More and more homeowners have been deciding to install synthetic turf lawns instead of continuing to deal with the labor, expenses, and problems that come with a natural lawn such as being too busy and not having the time to be tending to the grass daily. Today’s society has become much too fast-paced to be standing on the front yard with a garden host watering the grass for any amount of time at all. Most would agree that the benefits of a synthetic turf lawn definitely outweigh its initial cost and over time will eventually even pay for itself with all the money you can save from not having to buy fertilizers and pesticides as well as the savings on your water bill. If your thinking about going artificial in your lawn soon there is only one question you should ask yourself. Do you want to continue working for your lawn or do you want your lawn to work for you?
