Artificial Grass is a durable, low-maintenance alternative to conventional grass lawns that is increasing in popularity for use in front Gardens, back gardens play areas and dog runs.
People are attracted to this landscaping option for a number of reasons, including the opportunity to save water and save money on monthly maintenance costs, and the time-saving benefits of never having to weed, mow, aerate, fertilize, water or edge their lawn again.
One of the most common reasons for choosing Artificial grass for landscaping purposes is the chance to have a soft, lush lawn that is the same beautiful shade of green every month of the year.
In hot, dry days this provides homeowners with the opportunity to have a gorgeous lawn in the middle of the summer without the seemingly endless watering required to keep natural grass from drying out and dying in summer heat.
When fake grass enthusiasts recommend this option to their friends, many of those people understandably think back to the turf used on miniature golf courses in their youth or the early types of turf used on some sports fields many years ago.
The earliest forms of artificial grass, which admittedly looked and felt a bit like green, plastic carpet, are not exactly what most of us would want our neighbors to see in our front gardens and is not the type of ground cover most of us would want where our children or pets play.
But this is the first thing that comes to mind when many of today’s homeowners think about this type of Artificial turf, since this is the only type with which many people are familiar.
The truth is that you have most likely seen synthetic grass lawns in your neighborhood or around town, but you probably did not realize that it was not natural turf.
That is because the huge advancements in the manufacturing process and the quality of the materials used have completely transformed this alternative into a landscaping option with such a realistic, natural look and feel that it just is not that easy to tell the difference anymore.
There is also some confusion over the safety of this Artificial lawn alternative, which is – again – tied to older manufactured grass products that are no longer used.
