3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Synthetic Grass

More and more homeowners these days are making the switch to synthetic grass for their yards. With so many potential benefits, it is easy to see why. Let's take a closer look at three of the most prominent reasons to consider adding synthetic grass to your Alberta property. Call us to book a consultation today!

1)Low-Maintenance in Comparison to a Natural Lawn

If you currently have natural grass on your property, you know how much work it can require. Between weeding, fertilizing, mowing, and watering, you'll have plenty of labour-intensive tasks to keep you busy throughout the year. With synthetic grass, on the other hand, upkeep is minimal.

To keep your synthetic grass looking its best, you'll simply need to sweep away debris and hose off your lawn occasionally, so it stays clean. Decompacting the infill and brooming the turf will keep it lush and full over the years. You can handle these tasks yourself or work with our team for ongoing maintenance services.

2)Far Less Costly Over Time

While it is true that synthetic grass is more expensive to install than natural grass, it is much cheaper to maintain over time. With a natural lawn, you'll have the ongoing expenses of watering and fertilizing. You'll also have to buy a lawnmower and service it or pay for a gardening service. If your lawn falls victim to pests or disease, you'll have to pay to treat these issues and prevent them from coming back. In cases of severe damage, you may also have to buy new sod to replace damaged areas.

With synthetic grass, your costs basically end there. Hosing down the lawn to keep it clean uses only minimal water, so your water expenses will be minimal as well in comparison. If you don't already own a soft rake and broom, these are affordable, one-time purchases. Because artificial turf is low maintenance, you can easily do the work yourself, saving you a lot of money on ongoing care. Most high-quality turf is designed to last for decades, so you likely won't have to worry about replacement either.

3)Beneficial to the Environment

Watering a natural lawn uses up thousands of gallons of water each year. While it is sometimes possible to water your lawn using reclaimed water, oftentimes you'll be using fresh water. This can put a major strain on our natural resources, potentially causing problems for drinking water supplies in the future.

Not only that, but many fertilizers and pest or weed treatments utilize chemicals that are known to be harmful. When you apply these chemicals to your lawn, they can leech down into the groundwater, contaminating it. Synthetic grass doesn't require watering, fertilizing or pest and weed control, so you won't have to worry about any of these potential harms to the environment.
