There are many reasons a homeowner may consider installing artificial grass instead of natural turf in their garden. Perhaps the most common being the garden maintenance time it saves.
However, artificial grass not only helps reduce gardening time, but can save precious cash compared to a natural lawn too.
Below, we’ve outlined some of the benefits of synthetic grass when it comes to saving you time and money.
The average person is estimated to spend 2 months of their lifetime mowing the lawn. This alone is probably enough for most people to make the switch to artificial.
Compared to a real lawn, the maintenance involved in an artificial grass lawn is minimal. No weekends wasted mowing the lawn, no worrying about trimming the edges, or applying fertilisers or weed killers.
In addition, there’ll be no more mud traipsed on to the carpet as children or dogs run back into the house. Saving further cleaning time.
An artificial lawn will remain neat and green all year round with no effort required from you. Leaving your spare time free to spend as you please.
Going hand in hand with the time-saving benefits, artificial grass can be money-saving too.
Although there is an initial installation cost for artificial grass, the synthetic lawn will last for many years, helping to save money in the long run.
You won’t be required to spend cash on maintenance products that a natural lawn will need, such as:
It’s clear to see just from this list that there is money to be saved by opting for artificial grass.
Low maintenance = less equipment required. By removing the need to mow, trim and maintain a natural lawn, you are also removing the costs involved in buying necessary equipment for the job and the running costs of that equipment.
Water and electric bills could also be cheaper by not regularly watering the grass, or using an electric mower.
A real grass lawn may require further cleaning products for the home such as carpet cleaner, mops etc. where mud has been brought into the house on a wet day.
Some large garden owners may require professional maintenance for their lawn to keep it at its best. With artificial grass, a significant saving could be made here.
