5 Things You Won’t Need To Buy After Installing Synthetic Turf
Synthetic turf has many benefits. We know it’s pet-friendly, environmentally friendly, and reduces allergen issues for many. However, did you know that installing artificial grass has plenty of indirect perks?
Consider this example: because artificial grass doesn’t produce pollen and reduces those pesky allergy issues – that means that you won’t need to add those trusty allergy pills to your shopping list when summer rolls around.
Let’s discuss a few more items you can scratch off your shopping list for good:
Pesticides and Fertilizer
There isn’t a single insect that would prefer the sanitary environment of artificial turf to the damp, moist confines of a natural lawn. Pesticides reduce the impact of bugs, rodents, and ticks.
Once you switch to synthetic turf, the absence of these critters means you won’t have to spend money on these harsh chemicals. This is much better for the environment and reduces the risk of pesticides seeping into your water system.
When it comes to fertilizer, your turf doesn’t grow, so you won’t need to concern yourself with picking that up at the hardware store!
In that vein, once you’ve installed synthetic turf, you can save that can of bug spray for the campground – because you won’t need it when you’re enjoying your backyard!
Fleas and ticks can’t live in a yard covered with synthetic grass because they can’t nest, breed, or feed. Your dog will be more at ease – and your vet bills will be lower!
Lawnmowers and their upkeep (oil, gasoline, etc.) are a significant expense – one you won’t need to worry about once you’ve installed your synthetic turf.
While we don’t suggest you throw away your current lawnmower forever, you won’t need to replace it so long as you maintain your artificial grass!
Landscaping Services and Sprinkler Systems
Properly installed artificial grass restricts weed growth, so you won’t need to call your regular landscaping company to trim unruly weeds every few weeks. This can be another large yard expense – especially in regions that don’t see cold winters!
Additionally, you won’t need to worry about regular lawn watering. Artificial turf, of course, doesn’t need much water, so you’ll see significant savings on your energy bill by reducing the number of times you turn on the sprinklers.
Bear in mind that your artificial lawn will need occasional watering, but this is only to rinse it off – it’s not required.
When you consider the cost of maintaining your synthetic grass versus your natural lawn – the choice is simple. Synthetic grass is an excellent investment for those looking to reduce outdoor chores, lessen allergy issues, and save lawn maintenance costs.
