Why artificial grass is a better option for your home

Like sunshine and rain, the presence of grass is one of Mother Nature’s most universal creations and is seemingly everywhere you look.

No matter how big or small a house is, there will almost always be a yard with a patch of grass somewhere. Some people are meticulous when it comes to maintenance, while to others, the task of regularly cutting the grass can be put off until it grows ‘out of control’.

If you’re considering changing greens, Gumtree lists some of the benefits of installing artificial grass:

  1. Gone are the days of waking up at the crack of dawn on weekend simply to cut the grass and wake up the neighbours. Because artificial grass does not grow at all, it requires virtually no maintenance with only the lawn needing to be rinsed occasionally to remove dust and debris that has accumulated over time.
  2. Just like any other plant, grass requires a healthy combination of sunshine and water to be in top condition. Watering a natural lawn can literally swallow litres of precious water as opposed to astro turf that only needs water to be cleaned.
  3. Natural grass provides a home for insects and small creatures so it’s not uncommon to find moles, spiders or lizards in the area. Installing artificial turf reduces the presence of creepy crawlers in and around the garden/yard.
  4. Natural grass serves as a toilet for animals, doing as they please with the owner forced to scoop up the poop to keep things aesthetically pleasing. With artificial grass, the poop can be rinsed away with the hose pipe.
