Artificial turf is increasingly used as an effective solution for creating a beautiful lawn with very low maintenance required. We spend so much time tending to natural grass that could be better used for time with loved ones or time spent relaxing from a busy day’s work.
One of the main reasons that people choose artificial grass is that you don’t need to water it day and night. You only need to clean it occasionally to keep it free of fallen leaves or dirt. This is not a time consuming process as all you need to do is hose the blades of grass with a pressurized jet of water. Natural grass will need watering regularly and this can rack up a huge water bill every month. In addition to saving the cost of the water, you are choosing a more environmentally friendly option as you are not using up large quantities of water. You don’t need to use fertilizer or week killer on your artificial grass. They are also quite soft to the touch. Artificial grass from Preferred Turf is the best solution when considering the safety of your children. Unlike natural grass, you will not get any skin irritation from coming into contact with the grass.
If you have natural grass, mowing it is a necessity. But you can forget about this completely with artificial grass. The grass is plastic so it will stay the same length it was the day that they were installed and you can spend this extra time on something else. As mentioned above, there is little to no maintenance required for artificial grass. If there are leaves on the lawn, you can simply use a leaf blower to clean it up and water is only to be used when there is dirt that cannot be dislodged. You may have to think twice about getting an artificial lawn when you have a dog. You will need to clean it more regularly when you have pets. A lot of the time, there will be patches of dead grass due to pet urine. This will result in a patchy lawn and it will be very hard to maintain it. But with artificial grass, you can simply clean it up with some mild detergent and water. You will not need to worry about your dogs digging holes in the garden and bringing dirt and mud into the house.
The trouble with natural grass is that it is affected by weather conditions. They will wilt and brown in hot temperatures and it will be hard to keep watering them when water becomes a precious resource in the hot months. But artificial turf can tolerate a variety of weather conditions and traffic conditions without affecting its appearance. You don’t need to spend on pesticides or fertilisers to keep the grass looking bring and green. They are also highly durable and will not be subjected to fading due to UV exposure. Weeding will become a chore of the past when you install artificial turf.
