The very first benefit of installing artificial grass is that it requires almost no maintenance. As said above, many people still shirk from the thought of installing something as expensive and artificial. The truth is that installing the product and maintaining is still quite cheaper than real grass. Furthermore, it requires minimum maintenance. There is hardly any work done to keep the grass in a great condition.
First of all, you do not need to weed it or mow it. This is because the grass is synthetic and never grows. It remains its same beautiful and visually refreshing self all throughout the year, making your lawn the envy of the entire neighborhood. Secondly, it requires almost no watering. This does not mean that you never have to water it. What it means is that you do not need to water it as much as real grass. Thirdly, you do not have to worry about mud trailing in your front porch.
The second great advantage of this product is that it is actually beneficial to the environment how? To answer this question, something must be said about the maintenance of real grass. In order to keep it intact and living in the entire year, and especially to protect it from pests and insects, huge volumes of chemicals are added to the grass. These chemicals ultimately harm the environment as well as the nearby ecosystem. Synthetic grass does not function in this manner. Firstly of all, it is not organic due to which there is no reason to protect its growth. Secondly, due to the same reason, the product does not attract insects and pests. In the case of this product you do not need to add any form of chemical.
The product is very versatile in nature because it can be installed and is suitable for any place. It does not depend on the weather, like the real thing does. This means that if you live in an area where there is not much water to waste, then the grass is perfect since it does not require a lot of water. Did you also know that the synthetic grass lawns are porous? Due to this awesome quality, there is no question of chemical or muddy water runoffs or soil erosion.
But perhaps the best advantage of Artificial Grass is that it looks great almost everywhere. Synthetic grass, as it has been said above, is quite versatile. As long as the placement or installation is done with perfect precision, it can be placed anywhere. In Australia, you will see it installed in sporting complexes, shopping malls, in residential areas, at public event areas and just about anywhere.
Lastly, we come to the question about this product being expensive. Synthetic or Artificial Grass may not be inexpensive; because you still need to spend a bit to keep it in the best condition, but the cost of maintenance is much cheaper than real grass. Just think about it. Real grass takes about 6 months or even more to grow fully from the budding stage. The cost of maintenance therefore, all this while is considerably higher than synthetic grass.
