ARE YOU READY TO MAKE THE SWITCH TO ARTIFICIAL GRASS?
California has been suffering from severe drought conditions on and off for many years. That’s one reason why more homeowners in the greater San Francisco Bay area are opting for replacing all or part of their yard with artificial grass. Thanks to advances in the manufacturing process, artificial grass looks incredibly authentic, and of course, it’s much easier to maintain. In addition to upping your homes curb appeal, and outdoor space, artificial turf is the perfect solution for housebreaking your pets.
These are just a couple of the many benefits you’ll enjoy when you update your lawn with artificial grass. Read on to learn the top five reasons why homeowners love artificial grass!
YOU’LL SAVE MONEY ON UPKEEP
If you have your lawn professionally maintained, you can be spending up to $80 or more per visit. If you have weekly visits, that a cost of $4160 every year. It’s staggering!
Wouldn’t you instead use that money to take a vacation, or update your wardrobe?
Switching to artificial grass means you’ll pay next to nothing on upkeep. It doesn’t require watering, and most companies will offer you a warranty, so even if something goes wrong, you’ll be covered for the repair or replacement.
Plus, artificial grass is healthier and safer for you and your family. You’ll never need to apply dangerous chemical fertilizers, weed killers, or insecticides, which is not only safer for your family, it will save you money. Oh, and you can sell the lawnmower because it never needs mowing.
ARTIFICIAL GRASS IS TOUGH AND DURABLE
If you have small children, pets, or love to throw backyard barbecues for family and friends, your lawn needs to be tough enough to handle it. Artificial grass is more durable and sturdier than natural grass.
If you want a lawn that will stand up to a lot of traffic, artificial grass will help you to preserve a beautiful yard. If you live in an area that is prone to storms or drought, you’ll never have to worry about brown, trampled, or damaged grass. Along with its durability, artificial grass is easy to maintain. There’s no mud or dirt, so you’ll get no more footprints or paw prints to scrub off the hardwood floors.
It’s not impacted like natural grass, and it’s incredibly easy to maintain. Hose it down, or use a natural cleaning product for excellent results.
IT’S ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
While it may be hard to believe that artificial grass is more environmentally friendly, when it comes to your carbon footprint, it is. No more using fossil fuels when you mow the lawn. No more watering or using dangerous chemicals to have the perfect green grass. That means using less energy and conserving water. Many California communities have full or partial bans on watering the lawn. You’ll never have to water your lawn again. Additionally, artificial grass is recyclable. Many businesses donate their unused worn-out grass for recycling, which is then given to indoor and outdoor sports fields.
IT’S SAFER FOR YOUR KIDS
If your kids love playing in the yard, artificial grass is the perfect play surface. It has the feel of real grass without the grass stains and mud being tracked into your house. It also means no more skinned knees from falling on a rock it the yard!
If you have an outdoor play area, like a slide, trampoline, swing set, or teeter-totter, artificial grass is an excellent choice. Many parents think that installing smooth pebbles or natural grass beneath the area is more cushioning in case of a tumble. The fact is, artificial grass provides an excellent cushion, keeping your kids safe and clean when they’re playing in the yard.
ARTIFICIAL GRASS WILL UP YOUR HOME’S CURB APPEAL, AND VALUE
Your home is an expression of your style and personality. Whether you want to show pride of ownership, or are thinking of putting your home on the market, your home’s curb appeal is incredibly important. If your grass is brown, patchy, or not well maintained, it’s a poor reflection on you. If you’re selling, prospective buyers might not make it past the front yard.
Let’s face it, we’re all busy with work and family. No one wants to spend their weekend off mowing, mulching, weeding, and treating the lawn. When you have artificial turf, you can enjoy your weekends with the family or play a guilt-free round of golf.
Artificial grass always looks great. It’s green year-round, and no matter what the season, it always looks perfectly manicured. Plus, if you are considering selling your home, potential buyers will be attracted to the convenience of your low-maintenance landscape. Plus, the time and money they’ll save with artificial grass is an excellent marketing point.
