Should I Switch To Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is becoming increasingly popular not only in New Zealand but also right across the world. Many homeowners have already switched to artificial turf. 

On this page, we are taking a look at why artificial grass is the right choice for your next lawn refurbishment. 

No Need To Water and Very Little Maintenance

Of course, one of the main advantages is that you don’t have to water artificial grass. With water and other utility bills on the rise, we are all trying to look after our money. 

Once your artificial grass has been installed, you don’t have to worry about watering it. Instead, you can focus on watering your plants instead. 

The other advantage is that artificial grass is more or less maintenance-free. You don’t have to spend your Sunday morning cutting the grass. Yes, there is still some maintenance required. However, you mainly need to sweep the grass with a good yard brush and pick up any objects that have been dropped.

If you have a dog, you can easily clean and disinfect the area of the garden your dog favours. 

Choice Of Surfaces and Underlay

Artificial grass is much more user-friendly. When you speak to your local artificial turf supplier, he will give you advice on what type of grass is best for you. Not only can you choose from different grass surfaces, but you can also choose between different underlays. 

One reason many families opt for artificial grass is because of the many different options of underlay. A softer underlay is perfect for when you have a young family. As the children grow up, you may want to opt for a firmer underlay which makes entertaining in your garden a great experience. 

Artificial Grass Always Looks Great

Unlike real grass, artificial grass will never develop brown and bare patches.

No longer do you need to worry about the lawn when you open the curtains first thing in the morning. No matter what you do, your grass is going to look great when you look out the window. Your garden is always going to be ready to entertain in. 

When you have a heavy footfall in your garden, providing you have chosen the right kind of grass and underlay, you don’t have to worry about your grass “wearing out.” There is nothing worse than brown or discoloured patches on natural grass when you are hosting guests. 

Offers Protection Against Allergies

If you do suffer from a grass pollen allergy, you will know how much nuisance it can cause. It will most certainly stop you from enjoying your garden. 

Once you have installed artificial grass, you can finally enjoy looking forward to summer and spending time out in your garden. Also, fewer harmful insects and bugs like to call your garden home when you have artificial turf.

In Conclusion

There is little wonder that artificial grass is such a popular option the world over. When you are ready to find out more about artificial turf, all you have to do is to contact your local installation service. They will give you advice on the right choice of turf and underlay for your needs.
