Even though synthetic grass has been around since the mid-1960s, the stuff that you can buy today is worlds apart from the first varieties that were available. That’s because artificial grass has evolved from a carpet-like turf to synthetic blades that look and feel like the real thing.
Here are just some of the reasons why so many people are choosing to opt for synthetic grass over the real thing nowadays:
It looks and feels the same
Many people actually find it difficult to tell the difference between artificial grass and natural grass, even when they’re walking on it! That’s why nobody should feel like they are cheating by having some artificial grass professionally installed.
Artificial grass is tough
Synthetic grass is super tough. It can withstand lots of foot traffic and don’t easily show any obvious signs of wear and tear. This means you don’t need to keep replacing it – providing it’s been installed by a professional company.
It doesn’t go brown in the Sun
Real grass has a tendency to go brown if it receives too much sunlight. This natural phenomenon can make an otherwise beautiful lawn appear tired and in need of some TLC. You don’t have this problem with synthetic grass.
Synthetic grass is low maintenance
Artificial grass doesn’t need to be watered, mowed or weeded. This in itself saves you huge amounts of time and effort. Time and effort you can put into other parts of your garden.
It doesn’t stain clothes or make a mess in your house
If you’ve got children, you’ll know how easily real grass can stain clothes – especially whites! Artificial grass doesn’t have this problem. Plus, there’s the added benefit of people not tracking mud into your home after they’ve been in your garden.
