Artificial turf in Auckland can be an attractive option if you’re looking to give your garden a green and lush look without any of the hassle associated with a real lawn.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of artificial turf and why it might be a viable option for your home.
One of the biggest drawbacks of a real lawn is the significant amount of maintenance that it requires. Not only does this maintenance end up costing you a lot of time that you have to invest in the lawn’s upkeep but also money.
Consider that a real lawn can require as much as weekly mowing and edge trimming. Depending on the size of your lawn, this can take a fair amount of time that could be better spent on other things.
Less Costly To Keep
While artificial turf is more expensive to install than natural lawns, it pays itself off fairly quickly, owing to the lack of spending required on maintenance.
To maintain a natural lawn, you will have to invest in a lawnmower and edge trimmer or hire a garden service.
Those devices either use electricity which adds to your utility bill every month, or they run on fuel, which not only also costs a pretty penny nowadays, but it contributes to carbon emissions.
Natural lawns don’t stay green all year round. They need a fair amount of regular watering to stay looking lush. If you get a lot of rain, the lawn looks good. Otherwise, you need to spend a significant amount of money on watering the lawn regularly.
Moreover, natural lawns need periodic fertilising to stay healthy and lush. Natural lawns are also prone to developing dead spots in the shade or around trees and can become discoloured in patches.
Artificial turf does not need any watering, mowing or fertilising to stay looking green and lush. Shade is never an issue and the entire lawn will also look uniform and perfect all year round.
This makes it the more environmentally friendly option because you will not be wasting water or adding to carbon emissions by running lawnmowers and edge trimmers every weekend. You also won’t need the constant use of fertiliser, the production of which can also be damaging to the environment.
