Why choose Astro Turf / Artificial grass in Essex?
Most people, when asked to make a choice between natural and artificial, would prefer natural. But when it comes to grass, it is actually a better idea to go with synthetic grass or artificial grass. Synthetic or artificial grass is a better alternative to natural grass in hot, tropical climates or in Brentwood, Essex in the UK, where the grass grows too fast.
So why is artificial grass better for your lawn than natural grass? There are several reasons, Astro turf is safe, hygienic,quick to lay, easy to maintain, requires no soil, water or sunlight its easy to clean and guaranteed to stay looking vivid and fresh all year round. But let’s discuss the most important – the environmental benefits of artificial grass, first. We will also tell you how you can save money on artificial grass, and how you don’t have to waste much time on its maintenance. Read on!
Environmental Benefits of Artificial Grass
Artificial grass has several environmental benefits. Water conservation is perhaps the biggest environmental benefit of having artificial grass. It requires very little or no water, and there is no need to arrange irrigation for artificial grass. This also prevents the wastage of precious water resources.
Since artificial grass doesn’t grow (obviously!) it always retains its shape, which means, you don’t have to use a lawn mower at all. This saves you a lot on the fuel, so, not only do you save money, but also do your bit for the environment.
You don’t have to use pesticides for artificial grass either, which is another huge advantage as pesticides contain dangerous chemicals which pollute the environment.
Another important environmental benefit of using synthetic or artificial grass is that many recycled materials, including discarded automobile tires, are used in the manufacturing process for artificial grass, which is obviously a great thing for the environment.
Artificial Grass Does Not Require Any Maintenance
As said earlier, once the artificial grass has been installed, you don’t have to spend any time or money its maintenance. You may keep your lawn mower safely locked away, and you don’t have to hire a gardener to take care of it either. You don’t have to water it either.
Artificial Grass Looks Just As Good As Natural Grass
Because of new technologies and vast improvements in the manufacturing process for artificial grass, there really is not much difference between artificial and natural grass in the way they look. In fact, artificial grass looks fresh and green throughout the year, regardless of the weather conditions.
Save Money on Artificial Grass
It is true that you have to spend some money on the installation of artificial grass, but once installed, you save a lot on artificial grass in the long term. You save on labor charges, water bills, and fuel and so on. You don’t have to buy a lawnmower or hire someone to operate one. You don’t have to spend money on pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers or on the dressing, seeding, coring of the grass. The maintenance cost is minimal, and so the savings you achieve on artificial grass over a long term are enormous.
We hope that we have been able to convince you about the benefits of artificial grass.
