The Benefits of Artificial Grass

  • You will no longer need to worry about mowing your lawn on the weekends.  No more gas-powered mower and no more noise pollution.
  • You will no longer need to use fertilizers, weed killers or other toxic chemicals to keep your lawn lush looking and green year around.
  • A chemical free lawn is better for the health of your family, pets and the environment.  
  • You will no longer need to water your lawn, avoiding the needless waste of water. The Southern Nevada Water Authority stated on its website that a homeowner “saves 55 gallons of water per year for every square foot of natural grass replaced with synthetic.” And some water companies in drier areas will offer a cash rebate when you install an artificial turf or transition to native, drought-tolerant landscaping. 
  • You will always have a green lawn with little maintenance that will last around 15 to 25 years. 
  • The upfront cost to purchase and install your fake grass ranges from $5 to $20 per square foot, but then you won’t have any additional costs until you need to replace it. 

Some synthetic grass products are partially made with recycled materials

Artificial grass is made from synthetic fibers which look very close to real grass blades. This option for homeowners and landscapers first became popular almost five decades ago in Texas. Around the seventies, synthetic grass has been the main choice for stadiums all over the U.S. Now, it is a favorite choice of homeowners who would like to maintain a perfect landscape.

If you’ve been thinking of installing artificial grass on your lawn, here are the five key benefits you can expect:


There are several advantages awaiting those who decide to use artificial turf for their homes. One of the most important ones is, of course, aesthetics. Whether you live in a rural or urban area, you want to make sure that your lawn is a sight to behold. Artificial grass does the job of making your lawn look perfectly manicured all year round. Of course, artificial turf is as well a favorite option for several business property owners.

Ease of Maintenance

Artificial grass is much easier to maintain compared to natural grass. If you live in a climate that is prone to extreme weather conditions, you know that it can be really hard to maintain a great lawn. Whether your area is often flooded or in drought, synthetic turf makes sure your landscape does not only look superb, but is also hard-wearing enough against nature’s wrath. Artificial grass needs very little maintenance, and you don’t even have to think about weeding, mowing or watering.

Economical Use of Water

Of course, since the grass is artificial, you won’t have to use water to maintain it. If you live in a place where water is restricted, synthetic turf can provide huge benefits. While natural lawns discolor and eventually deteriorate because of inadequate water, artificial turf will keep looking great for you, your guests and passersby to enjoy. Simply put, you don’t need water to keep your lawn alive and looking great. That naturally means less utility expenses for your home.

Economical Overall Lawn Maintenance

Aside from being economical in terms of water consumption, artificial grass has more economic benefits in light of overall lawn maintenance. Besides, when you use natural grass in your landscape, you don’t only pay for water but also fertilizers, equipment, manual labor and the rest. And all of these are paid out of your own pocket. Using artificial turf, you won’t even need the services of professional landscapers for maintenance, which means you can save even more cash.

Environmental Friendliness

Finally, artificial grass is friendly to the environment. Although you still have to pick the right type of synthetic lawn and know what materials are used to construct it. There are general environmental benefits that come with any type of artificial turf. For one, artificial grass limits the amount of water used in maintaining a lawn. You will also not be using herbicides, insecticides, or pesticides, all of which are destructive to the environment. In short, you don’t need to use chemicals to maintain an artificial turf, and that is mainly why it is an environment-friendly option.
