Benefits of Artificial Grass
A lawn is a wonderful place to relax, but maintaining the appearance can require considerable money and time if you use natural turfgrass. Significantly improved since it was introduced in the 1960s, artificial grass offers a number of impressive benefits.
It’s a well-known fact that Melbourne’s weather can change up at any point in the day from one extreme to the next. Melbourne has wet springs, and cold winters, heat waves and afternoon breezes, with all these changes it can be hard to maintain a healthy yard. Artificial grass is the perfect way to keep a lawn looking beautiful and lush through all these changes.
In fact, at AGO we make sure our artificial grass products are prepared for the extreme Australian heat with our HeatBlock technology, which protects your grass from the heat. It is also important to note how you install the grass and the drainage system you have in place to prevent any flooding. Installation is an important process to avoid weather damage so it’s best to make sure you do it right.
Because artificial grass offers excellent drainage, it dries quickly. You do not have to worry about water pooling and collecting for days or the wet earth creating mud puddles. This feature reduces the amount of dirt and mud that is tracked inside your house.
An artificial lawn is a great way to keep the environment in mind. When you have a yard with a fake lawn, the maintenance of watering and mowing is no longer an issue. Your lawn will need the occasional hose down to keep it clean, especially if you have pets, but nothing like real grass. In addition to the cost savings, you will conserve resources.
Another important aspect of synthetic turf is that it doesn’t need to be mowed. This is great for the environment as mowing releases pollution and carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Artificial grass also does not require fertilizers or other chemicals that can contaminate groundwater.
For even more eco-conscious buyers we recommend The Wallaby for your backyard. The Wallaby is a high-quality synthetic grass manufactured from 60% sugar cane which is a renewable material and makes the grass recyclable at the end of its long life.
It’s commonly known that the people of Melbourne live life to the fullest and have the best coffee in the world. In fact, Melbourne has many amazing cafes, restaurants, and venues to drink the best coffee, eat delicious food, watch their favourite sports, and enjoy world-class entertainment.
When living a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle, getting caught up with small and mundane maintenance jobs may not always seem like a priority. Synthetic lawn is an easy way to keep your lawn looking amazing without major maintenance or giving time to it. Once installed, artificial grass requires very little upkeep. There is no need to mow the lawn, pull weeds or trim edges. Because artificial grass is super convenient, it’s perfect for an on the go lifestyle.
If your lifestyle is a little more family orientated artificial grass is still a great choice to keep your lawn looking beautiful and saving you time and energy for your family. All of our turf products are kid and pet friendly and our Pet Premium System is the perfect fake grass solution for pet owners.
Fake grass may be the perfect way to create something beautiful and unique in your space. There are so many different ways to use synthetic turf for design or landscaping. For an apartment it can make the outdoor area feel more like the outdoors, it’s great for around pools and is even perfect for a backyard putting green.
Venues may also benefit from the aesthetic of artificial lawns. Whether it’s a hipster cafe with a backyard vibe or a club with a grass feature wall. Synthetic lawn is a great, low maintenance way to help your venue stand out in a city full of great locations to spend your free time.
An artificial lawn will always look well kept and maintained. It eliminates the need to incur the expense or endure the inconvenience of periodically replanting or reseeding that would be necessary with natural turf and your lawn won’t have unattractive bare or brown spots.
Installing artificial grass may have a large cost upfront, however, over time it is a worthwhile investment that pays off over time. Between increasing property prices and living in a fast-paced city, having an artificial lawn will save you both time and money. When you install artificial grass you will save money on water, owning and operating a lawnmower, weed killers, and pesticides.
