You have probably heard the buzz about artificial turf, but is it really worth it? As with most landscaping options, it has its advantages and disadvantages. It is not going to be for everyone, but many people will find synthetic turf to be incredible. The benefits can be boiled down to two categories: low cost and low effort.
On top of the benefits, synthetic turf is getting to the point where the disadvantages are getting smaller and smaller. The most popular reason not to go with it is because people like the natural feel of real grass, but the difference in texture is continuously becoming less noticeable.
Think about everything that is required to keep a lawn looking nice. It needs to be watered, mowed, and possibly fertilized. Many people opt to pay a gardener, which is one of the most expensive options. Artificial turf completely eliminates all of these requirements. You can save money on watering and maintenance equipment. The best part is that spending essentially nothing on your artificial grass will not reduce how good it looks even the slightest bit.
The whole point of artificial turf is that it looks good no matter what. You do not need to do hardly any maintenance at all and it still looks good. This is especially beneficial as the seasons change. With real grass, you have to take special care depending on how hot it is and the changing weather. From the blistering heat of summer to the dead of winter, your synthetic turf will still look good and feel good.
