The benefits afforded by replacing grass with artificial turf

Posted on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 3:32:15 PM

Across the country each year, homeowners spend a lot of funds buying lawn care equipment and paying for regular watering. Alternatively, those consumers who live in arid climates and decided to xeriscape their yards save a considerable amount on maintenance costs.

As artificial turf becomes an increasingly popular addition to residential areas nationwide, individuals who obtain home improvement financing to pay for the incorporation of the material on their back and front lawns may benefit from the following advantages.

Significant savings in water costs
According to Houselogic, every square foot of natural sod which is replaced with synthetic grass can save homeowners 55 gallons of water each year. Additionally, in some areas, water companies even give consumers breaks on their monthly bills for having incorporated the artificial ground covering.

Less upkeep to regularly complete
Sure, leaves may need to be raked from the lawn in autumn. Otherwise, little work is necessary for the successful maintenance of artificial turf. In addition to saving homeowners money, the material also allows them to save a considerable amount of time. 

Fewer environmental risks
Anyone who has previously risked the health of their family members or beloved pets to spread potentially-harmful pesticide or fertilizer on their lawn can appreciate the little upkeep required of synthetic grass. Upon installation, no chemicals need be applied to the surface at any time.
