Fleas, insects and other pests are attracted to green lawns, and so it becomes necessary to spray insecticides and pesticides regularly. With artificial lawns this is not required. Also there would be no need of chemical fertilizers which are used to enhance the growth of natural grass. Mowers and automatic trimmers which cause noise and air pollution will not have to be used.
Artificial turfs play a very important role in water conversation. If you live in a dry climate which requires you to water your lawn daily, artificial lawns are the best option for you. Installation of artificial turf at a typical home can conserve approximately 22,000 gallons of water per year which can save up to 75% of your monthly water bill.
Artificial turfs are long lasting and can endure any type of weather. Water clogging will not be a problem in case of rains as most of the artificial turfs available now allow the water to drain through. The average durability of artificial grass is 8 years and so you won’t have to worry about replanting the grass periodically.
Ideal for sports
Apart from looking just like real grass, artificial grass is very versatile. It can be used for a wide range of sporting arenas like soccer and hockey pitches, golf courses and tennis courts. Natural grass can only be played on for an average of 250 hours per season whereas artificial grass can be played on at all times. All artificial turfs need is regular brushing to keep the leaves and mud out and straighten flattened bristles. With the right maintenance and use of appropriate footwear artificial turfs can last for many years.
