Common Myths About Artificial Grass
Artificial Grass is Expensive
Have you been put off artificial turf up until now because of the potential expense? Well, let us debunk that myth from the get go.
Artificial grass is reasonably priced, yes there will be a cost to remove the already pre-existing lawn in order to replace it with artificial grass. However, there are different grass types that vary in price, colour, and materials used and how long it will last. You could easily choose something that suits your budget.
Whatever you spend at the outset will be money saved in the long run. No pesticides, no herbicides no lawn mower, no hoses. That’s savings on electricity and water as well as helping the environment.
It Doesn’t Last Very Long
Yes it does, artificial grass lasts for at least 15 years and in that time you save money and time in maintenance, freeing up your spare time to do other things. Just brush it occasionally and that’s it.
15 years is a long time and at the end of that you can either continue with artificial grass or return to natural lawn grass. However, we believe that once you have artificial grass you won’t want to go back.
It Doesn’t Look Realistic
Artificial grass is much more sophisticated and has improved immeasurably over the years. Installing it is quick and easy and the quality of artificial grass is such that, it’s pretty hard to tell the difference between that and a real lawn. You won’t be able to tell the difference and neither will anyone else. And it in its place – fantastic, lush looking grass.
It Needs A Lot of Care and Attention
No, artificial grass is almost maintenance free, all you need to do is brush it occasionally and pull out any rogue weeds that may have grown through, although this is rare. There’s no lawn mowing, there’s no need to hose in summer, there’s no need for the usual herbicides, pesticides, fungicides. It’s just so easy to care for, freeing up your time for other things.
