There is a major misconception with synthetic grass: that it is more expensive than natural grass. Many homeowners for this reason turn to natural grass as their lawn of choice, but unknowingly are putting more time, effort and money into their garden maintenance.
Look beyond the cost of initial installation, and instead cast your attention to the incredible investment that synthetic grass is, and the benefits it will bring.
Save Money in the Long Term
First and foremost, synthetic turf is incredibly cost effective when you evaluate it against the full maintenance and upkeep common with natural grass lawns. Synthetic turf tends to last a lot longer than natural grass, in many cases lasting upwards of 15 years with minimal upkeep needed. Generally, the way to work this out is by looking at the installation cost and dividing this by the expected number of years you expect it to last. From there, you also need to take into account the fact that you will not be spending money on lawnmowers, lawn care, chemical and more. This is expanded over a number of years, making a substantial difference overall to the amount of money being invested from natural vs. synthetic.
Lower Water Bills
One of the largest benefits seen from the installation of synthetic turf is that you save a larger amount of water, which in turn means that you are saving on your water bill, and doing your bit for the environment at the same time.
No Harsh Chemicals
One of the best things about synthetic turf is that they remain lush, vibrant and green throughout the year. This means that you don’t need any fertilisers, unnatural chemical solutions or weed killers to keep it looking perfect. With the correct installation methods taking place, the most you may have to do is pull out the odd weed from the edge of the turf.
Throughout the years of owning natural lawns, there are a number of expenses that need to be made in order to keep your lawn looking great. These can include lawn mowers, rakes, weed eaters, trimmers and much more.
Installing synthetic turf virtually eliminates the costs associated with upkeep that is common with natural grass.
The benefits are substantial, and you could be saving money by installing synthetic turf around your home and put it back into the more important things in life. Ensure that you have a high-quality installation by talking to us today at Lush Turf Solutions.
