Many people get confused about what the difference is between fake turf, synthetic grass, artificial lawn, and other variations. They’re all interchangeable terms for the same thing – a good-looking, trouble-free synthetic lawn that offers a high-quality alternative to natural grass.
The reasons why synthetic grass is a great solution for many households are becoming more compelling by the week. Here are 8 benefits of synthetic grass to consider if you are thinking about installing it in your own backyard.
1. Maintenance free
Synthetic lawn does not need mowing, trimming, watering, or fertilising. Once it is installed, it can be left to its own devices. All you need to do to maintain it in its prime and pristine condition is remove any debris and leaves and then sit back to enjoy its beauty.
2. Resistant to Pests
Because the synthetic turf is made in a similar way as a carpet is made, the latex backing is so strong that pests such as moles cannot dig through it.
Unlike early AstroTurf versions, the modern synthetic lawn is very eco-friendly. It avoids the use of chemicals in the manufacturing process, cuts water usage dramatically and therefore reduces your carbon footprint. In the manufacturing process, only the very best virgin raw materials that to not contain any toxins or heavy metals are used.
4. Drought resistant
Artificial lawn is drought resistant. It retains its colour and pile in the toughest of conditions; and, as a result, always looks lush no matter what the weather conditions are. We only use Australian made turf products that are made and tested to withstand our harsh weather conditions.
5. UV resistant
Synthetic lawn is also UV resistant. Each individual grass fibre is coated with a substance that prevents the UV or sun rays from penetrating the fibres. This helps retain the lawn in its original condition where natural lawn will burn in the hot sun.
6. Suitable for a variety of surfaces
This artificial lawn is great for those shady places where real lawn never grows properly or for small areas such as median strips and sidewalks. It can be used on almost any surface, including existing lawn replacement, concrete, pavers, tiles, timber decking and asphalt. We can install it on balconies, rooftops, swimming pool areas, patios and even caravans.
7. Child and pet friendly
It’s important to install an artificial lawn that is not dangerous or toxic to both children and pets. The products we use are free of toxins and heavy metals, and offer a soft and safe surface for children to play on.
