A lush, beautiful lawn is something most homeowners yearn for, but maintaining one takes time and skill, something which many of us don’t have in abundance. If that’s your situation, consider artificial grass. Invented in the 1960s mainly for use in covered athletic fields, artificial grass has come a long way. Nowadays, it is increasingly difficult to tell whether the lawn you’re standing on is artificial grass or natural lawn. Let’s take a look at why artificial lawns are becoming more and more popular across Australia.
“We have used TDF 6 times and will use them again in the future. Tony is one of the nicest persons to deal with. Tony always has a smile and a laugh going on when you talk to him. When you get the face of the business coming personally to your house to work and not just workers you know he cares. I must say the whole TDF crew are great.”
Unlike natural lawns, synthetic lawns do not require mowing, weeding, or watering. Synthetic does not get muddy or rutted. You only need to sweep or vacuum dead leaves and any other dirt or debris that may get collected. Artificial grass is a particularly attractive option if you live in an area of low light or where the ground conditions make it difficult for natural grass to thrive.
Durable and Long Lasting
Unlike natural grass which may develop brown patches or look dull depending on the season, artificial grass is durable and UV resistant, so the colour of the blades do not easily fade. It maintains its shape even after being stepped on or having furniture resting on it. If you have kids, artificial grass will permit them to play ball sports on it to their heart’s content. Your lawn will appear immaculate all year round, for many years to come.
It is estimated that one-third of residential water is used to irrigate lawns during hot weather. With artificial grass, not only do you save water you also help mitigate environmental disasters in dry climates. Additionally, there is no need for fertiliser, which means no chance of polluting the groundwater.
Because it stays short all year round, artificial grass attracts far less dust, pollen and other allergy-causing debris that is often found in natural grass.
Pretty All Year Round
Lastly, and we’d say most obviously, since it is synthetic artificial grass looks pretty whatever the weather. Whether it is hot, raining or snowing, your patch of artificial turf remains green and lush as it was on the very first day it was laid.
