Synthetic Turf Is The Way To Go
Natural grass lawns are nice but they require an incredible amount of maintenance to keep green. Grass needs to be fertilized at least once a year to really get that nice shade of green that’s the envy of all your neighbors, and you have to trim and mow your grass every week or so to keep it well-manicured and neat. The costs of maintaining and fueling a lawn mower can add up. Not only that, but grass requires a lot of water to grow and stay healthy. If you live in a place like Texas that’s prone to drought, then it not only gets expensive to water your grass but its environmentally foolish as well. We spoke with our friends at Synthetic Turf Frisco to gain more knowledge on artificial grass and the benefits.
If you’re tired of the work and huge cost it takes to maintain your lawn, then it might be time to get some synthetic turf. Artificial grass gets a bad rap because as little as ten years ago it was pretty obvious when grass wasn’t really grass. The plastic was too shiny and sharp, and the color always seemed off. However, there have been many advances in the artificial grass since then. Modern day synthetic turf truly looks and feels like real grass, and it’s so soft that you can walk on it with bare feet. In fact, artificial grass is becoming more and more popular in professional sports stadiums. Needless to say, there are dozens of benefits to installing synthetic turf.

Artificial grass is easy to install and a high-quality product doesn’t need water or maintenance to look and feel great. There’s no need to mow, and when fall brings down leaves all you have to do is sweep them away. Best of all, artificial grass doesn’t need water which saves you money and the environment. Not only that, but it won’t get muddy in the rain, allowing you to have that barbecue immediately after the rain ends. Though a high-quality artificial grass is more expensive to install, over a 20 year period it’s actually three times cheaper to maintain than a natural grass lawn.
Grass will often turn brown during the winter or in arid regions, making your lawn look like an unkempt mess, but artificial grass is a vibrant green all year around making your home look its best twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week all year round. Plus, since there’s no need to fertilize or use pesticides to kill bugs or herbicides to kill weeds, it’s a lot better for the environment as well.
If you are sick and tired of putting hundreds of hours of work into your lawn, only to get dried out and dying grass in return, then it’s time to switch to synthetic turf. While there is an upfront cost, it’s ultimately cheaper to have than natural grass in the long run. The high-quality artificial grass is almost indistinguishable from the real thing in both look and feel, and it will last you for years to come. If you’re still unsure about getting artificial grass there are plenty of places where you can see and feel them firsthand. After doing so, you’ll no doubt be ready to turn your lawn into artificial turf.
