Fake Lawn, Pros and Cons of Artificial Turf

Because the technology has come such a long way from the fake plastic appearance of fake grass in the past, more and more property owners are turning to the fake lawn as a way to save water and effort. There are numerous benefits to putting in fake grass, including the fact that you can use it for many different decorative purposes. From dressing up bars and restaurants to filling in for the real thing in your own backyard, you can place this type of material anywhere you please. Interior designers are finding more ways than ever before to liven up spaces with this bright green carpeting.

Most property owners, however, are interested in using a fake lawn to stand in place of the real thing. If you live in a climate that is hostile to plant growth, such as extremely dry conditions or those with little natural light, this is the best way to get that picturesque patch of green that is so coveted in front of a home. It is also a good way to save water. In the summer months, it can take an extremely high volume of water to keep a lawn looking healthy. However, with fake grass, you don't need to worry about any maintenance whatsoever. Once the grass is installed, you can just leave it in place.

This type of lawn is ideal for holiday homes or for use in the summer when you are planning on going on a holiday and leaving your own home behind. Rather than paying someone for lawn maintenance when you are not there, you can simply put in a fake lawn and not worry about it. This type of grass can be placed decoratively in gardens, around swimming pools, or any other areas where you want a bright splash of greenery. Artificial turf is also advantageous for sporting purposes, because it can take more abuse than the real thing and still look its best.

However, there are a few disadvantages that can be present if you purchase a fake lawn. Although new technology has crafted artificial grass that feels quite close to the real thing, if you purchase cheap or older models of turf, you might find that they are scratchy and uncomfortable. Another factor to consider is that if you leave artificial grass out in the sun, it can soak up the heat far more effectively than real grass, and can be hot to the touch.
