Is Artificial Grass Right for Me?
Updated: Sep 15, 2022
Artificial grass has been growing in popularity recently with an increasing number of homeowners, architects and contractors including it in their projects. And for good reason! It’s less maintenance than natural grass, it can last a long time, and can be used in spaces where grass would be difficult to near impossible to maintain.
If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’re one of the many persons interested in artificial grass, but you’re wondering if it’s the right choice for you. Here are some signs that you may be ready to have us install SYNLawn artificial grass at your property.
You Like How Artificial Grass Looks
Artificial grass gives you a picture-perfect lush, green grass look. This is for those of us who need our grass to look pristine, year-round. SYNLawn offers a wide variety of grass types like SYNBermuda, SYNFescue, SYNZoysia and more, allowing you to get the look of different grass species.
Lawn Maintenance is Not for You
Not everyone has the interest, time or money for the upkeep of a natural lawn. Consistent watering, mowing, weeding, fertilizing and aeration are necessary to grow a strong healthy natural lawn. Artificial grass might be right up your alley if you’re not interested in spending your time or money on having these things done. Artificial lawns require far less maintenance as the average care involves removing any debris that might fall on them and brushing periodically.
You can’t grow grass in your area
Some spaces just don’t have the right conditions for growing grass. There may be issues with the soil or too much shade that prevents you from growing a lush lawn. We’re also seeing more interest from clients who have a terrace, balcony or rooftop space where grass typically can’t grow, but they want a bit of green in their outdoor space. Not only does it look amazing in the garden, but it can also be used for a wide range of purposes and in a variety of settings including on decking, poolsides, roof terraces, offices, balconies, restaurants, bars, hotels, gyms, and golf courses.
The Cost Makes Sense for You
Contrary to popular belief, artificial grass can be expensive initially. Many people are taken aback initially when they see a quotation to install turf in their home. A high-quality realistic turf can cost you anywhere between $4 and $10 USD per square foot plus installation costs. Although the starting cost is high, you can expect to save on expenses related to watering and tending to a natural grass lawn over the years. If you're more interested in investing your money now to avoid continuous maintenance expenses, then artificial grass may be the choice for you.
