Why Artificial Grass is a Low Maintenance Alternative

Artificial grass is a key choice for many homeowners and businesses as it’s much easier to maintain than natural grass and requires little cleaning and maintenance. Consider that artificial turf doesn’t need to be watered, mowed or fed anything to keep it looking beautiful and full. Think about all the energy, time and money you could save.

Tools Needed for Artificial Turf Maintenance

As with anything, you need the right tools for the job, and artificial grass care is no different. Having the right artificial grass maintenance tools is essential to the care of your turf to ensure it looks its best for years to come.

Maintaining a natural grass lawn means you need to have a shed or garage overflowing with a large variety of tools and lawn related objects. Rakes, mowers, shovels, grass seed and more, are required to keep grass looking its best. Turf on the other hand, only requires a few simple household items, such as:

  • A hose
  • Flexible rake
  • Stiff bristled broom

Artificial Grass Care Saves Time and Money

With proper artificial grass care, you can save yourself energy, time and money. Over a 10-year period, artificial grass can save you $5,000 compared to sod. A normal lawn requires constant time and attention with watering, fertilizing and aerating. Artificial grass doesn’t require any of that and with some low maintenance always looks great.

Artificial Turf with Pets and Children

You might think that if you have pets or children that artificial turf isn’t for you, but that’s not true. Modern artificial grass systems are built to withstand heavy use and unlike conventional lawns, can avoid browning or bald spots from pets and wear and tear. If there are any spills or odours, simply use your hose and a disinfectant to wash away the smell and eliminate bacteria.
