You need to fertilize, aerate, weed, and mow in order to keep your grass looking nice. Sometimes there are inexplicable brown spots that need to be dug up and redone. A lot of people spend hours on their lawns trying to make it look perfect. There’s edging, clipping, and watering that can’t be overlooked either. If you’re tired of having to put so much time, effort, and money into your lawn it’s time to consider artificial turf instead of grass. There are many benefits of having artificial turf instead of grass, and here are just a few.

Save Water

This is probably the biggest benefit of having an artificial turf lawn. Grass lawns need so much water to keep them looking green. Especially when the weather gets really hot. Some lawns get watered in the morning and the night. Turf is even more practical if you live in an area that doesn’t have an abundance of water or has water restrictions. You won’t have to worry about setting the timer on your sprinklers any more!

Cost Effective Option

Artificial turf lasts a long time, but if you’re wanting to replace your lawn with newer turf you can recycle your old turf. That’s the great thing about artificial turf, you’ll pay once for it but you can keep using it in different places so you get the most out of it as you can. Put your old turf in dog runs or create garden paths with artificial turf so you don’t have to worry about weeds. You can even put turf in a mud or playroom! This makes for easy clean up and it looks really cool! 

Summing Up

There are a lot of benefits of having artificial turf instead of grass. Save some water, time and money all while getting the biggest bang for your buck. Spend more time with your family instead of worrying about your lawn! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the amount of money and work it takes to keep your grass looking nice, it’s time to seriously consider using artificial turf.
