The Case For Synthetic Grass Lawns

By Edited Aug 21, 2015 0 1

There is more incentive than ever for the competitive synthetic grass industry to push ahead with the continued improvement of the products and the services. As everyone is becoming more aware of the importance of conserving water, there is an increase in the hunt for alternatives to lifestyle choices that were previously considered mandatory.

One of these choices is the lawn in the front and backyard of everyone's home. In the past it was assumed that grass was the only option available. This idea was changed when people started to either pave their yards with stone or tile pavers, or they simply concreted the yard. You would agree that there is nothing that looks remotely natural about either of these options.

In order to maintain a semblance of the lush green lawn the move towards synthetic grass lawns has been rising in pace. To keep up with this demand synthetic grass suppliers have been installing products that have shown a remarkable similarity to the real stuff. In fact, from a small distance it can be very difficult to pick the grass as fake in some cases.

What you lose in having a natural grass on your front or back lawn, you more than make up for in a couple of crucial ways. Both of these ways have an impact on critical areas of our lives. The first is the water supply, something that is in a severely depleted state in some parts of the world. With water restrictions hitting a growing number of regions there is no justification for using it to water your lawn. The result is a uniformity of dead or dying yards. Synthetic grass can replace the ugly looking dustbowls of many neighborhoods with a rich, lush-looking lawn instead.

The second important saving that you will get from a synthetic grass lawn is that of time. With no more need to mow the lawn or trim the edges or weed the grass, there will be plenty of free time available to get other jobs done. Or even better, there will be much more time left to do the things you want to do rather than the things you have to do.

Opponents of synthetic grass are fast running out of reasons to dislike it. Anyone who has ever laid a tile on their property has no argument about an artificial ground covering and anyone who has put up with a dirt patch in the middle of their backyard will agree that synthetic grass is a far more preferable alternative.

I thought about making the switch for my lawn until I heard about Pennington's SmartSeed (www.smartseed.com). I haven't used their grass seed yet, but have heard good things about it. Hopefully it will help my lawn and my water bill!
