Artificial turf provides a safe, comfortable surface for just about any sport, and the synthetic stuff is far easier and cheaper to maintain than natural grass. From the time and money required to water, cut, and maintain real grass to sky-high water bills and pest control solutions, more and more homeowners are switching to artificial turf for their backyard fields and putting greens. Any homeowner still on the fence should read on to discover the savings.
Time is money, which means lawn maintenance is expensive, even for homeowners who do it themselves. The initial investment of the mowers, tools, and other equipment needed to handle lawn work is costly, not to mention the cost of fuel and ongoing maintenance throughout the years. Weekly professional lawn care services could add up to thousands of dollars per year. Low maintenance artificial grass eliminates the time and money required for regular maintenance, paying for itself in just a few years due to those expenses alone.
Natural grass lawns need, on average, about 55 gallons of water per square foot per year to stay healthy. With grass lawns drinking so much water, it’s easy to see how one-third of the average household’s water consumption is used for watering lawns, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Replacing natural grass with artificial turf helps homeowners slash their water bills. Of course, it also helps the environment!
Pest Control Solutions
Homeowners with natural grass have one particularly annoying problem: pests. Insects and other pests are naturally attracted to grassy lawns, which means expensive herbicides, pesticides, and other pest control solutions are required. Turf eliminates those expenses—and the use of chemicals that may be harmful to families and pets—entirely.
