Are you considering the possibility of installing artificial grass but you aren’t sure whether it is a good idea or not?

In a city like Sydney, where we have constant population growth and thousands of new buildings and dwellings in many suburbs, it is not easy to cultivate and maintain a real lawn. Consequently, people are now starting to consider the benefits of installing synthetic lawns in their gardens as a way to save costs, water, as well as ensuring that they have a green lawn all year round, especially in drought-prone climates.

If you are sitting on the fence, and you are not sure whether it is a good idea to install an artificial lawn in your garden, here are six reasons why fake grass is gaining ground over natural grass, and how it will make your life so much easier.


Maintenance free

Once your synthetic lawn has been correctly laid, it is a simple matter to use a blower or rake to clear any leaves, branches, and other debris off your lawn.



An artificial lawn does not need watering; therefore, you will save about 40 litres of water per square meter of lawn per year. Not only do you save substantial amounts of water by installing fake grass, but it will also remain green year in and year out irrespective of how much annual rain there is.

Works where natural grass doesn’t grow

Natural grass will not grow in many areas in a garden such as under large spreading trees. Synthetic grass is not affected by the lack of sun or too much shade. Therefore, installing fake grass is a perfect way to cover the bare patches in your garden.

Cost-effective and pays for itself

Because you do not have to pay for the irrigation, maintenance and fertiliser costs, your fake grass will typically pay for itself in three to five years. Additionally, you will continue to save on your annual landscaping and lawn maintenance bills.


Artificial grass does not need to be mowed

Not only do you not need to mow your artificial lawn, which saves time and money, but the impact on the environment will also be reduced. An ordinary household lawn mower generates more pollution in one hour than a vehicle driving on the road for one hour.


Non-toxic and safe

The raw materials that artificial grass is manufactured from is safe and non-toxic to children, pets, and the environment. Furthermore, the fertilisers and pesticides that need to be applied to natural grass so that it grows into a lush, thick, green lawn do not have to be used on fake grass to create the same effect. Therefore, making it safe for children and pets to play on.



Final words

The starting point for a quality, maintenance-free lawn is to purchase the best quality fake grass in Sydney. Without a quality product, it will be virtually impossible to experience the benefits of installing artificial grass instead of natural grass.
