People have different reasons for wanting to install artificial grass. One of the most common reasons is that they want to reduce their carbon footprint. Yes, it is true – fake grass can be much more eco-friendly than a natural lawn. Read on to learn why and then contact All Season Turf at (866) 365-8873 to learn more about the installation process.
Artificial Grass Uses Much Less Water
If there is one thing every California homeowner knows, it is that we cannot afford lawns that are thirsty for lots of water. Unfortunately, that describes a traditional grass lawn. When you install an artificial lawn, it will not need water to grow. It will look green and perfect all year long – even in a drought. While you will need to hose it down once in a while to keep dust and dirt away, that is the extent of the water required.
Reduce Carbon Emissions by Choosing Artificial Grass
The maintenance equipment you need to take care of natural grass can be expensive and can create a lot of pollution. From lawn mowers to trimmers, these all use petrol or diesel. These fossil fuels are not a part of cleaning and keeping your artificial grass looking great for years to come. There is no mowing. There is no trimming. You simply rinse it off once in a while and enjoy a smaller carbon footprint.
You Don’t Need Potentially Toxic Chemicals on Your Lawn
Those with natural lawns have two choices: to avoid chemical pesticides or to have a lawn free from weeds. Natural pesticides might help to some extent, but if you want your lawn to look perfect then you will likely need these chemicals. That is unless you use artificial grass, which does not require these chemicals. Do your part for the environment and skip those pesticides.
You Will Not Have to Deal with Pests and Insects
If you are the type of person who would never have used pesticides, then you are a person who would be resigned to dealing with bugs, inspects, and other pests. If you have pets or children that play in the yard, removing these pests is essential to prevent bug bites and tick bites. The good news is that with artificial grass, they have nothing to eat and therefore do not have any reason to live within your lawn.
You Could Set Up a System to Use the Runoff Water
Natural water absorbs and uses water while synthetic grass does not. Instead, it drains water from the surface along the ground and into a storm sewer. However, you could set it up to harvest that water runoff. You could use that to water other plants and reduce your overall water usage.
