Eco-Friendly Artificial Grass

Let us solve this issue for you and explain why artificial grass is eco-friendly and the eco-friendly benefits it has over natural grass.

Artificial Grass has Flexible Nature 

Eco-friendly artificial grass has come a long way from it’s beginning, that is it’s become so common and that's why people have started using it for different applications. People prefer fake grass rather than natural grass mainly because it requires less maintenance.

 Due to its flexible nature, it has been used in homes, schools, offices, sports fields and business centers. 

Artificial Grass is Water Saving and Budget Friendly

People always prefer products which are easy to use and are friendly in terms of cost and friendly in terms of the environment. Fake lawn ticks both of those boxes. Natural grass requires a lot of time and effort to maintain. 

It also requires a lot of watering  and cost to look after. Your main cost will be due to investing in equipment (Lawn Mowers, Fertilizers etc) synthetic turf does not require any of this.

Artificial Grass Reduces Harmful Emissions

It’s true that artificial lawn does not reduce carbon emissions as natural grass does. But in fact, fake grass is made up of plastic so it does not need a petrol lawn mower meaning it does not consume electricity. This makes fake turf better for the environment.

Artificial Grass is Non-Toxic 

Eco-friendly artificial grass does not need any fertilizer or any weed killer to upkeep the artificial grass. It  does not require these toxic chemicals which means it is better for nature and your children. 

When such products are used on your natural lawn it also harms and kills insects and is harmful to your children and the environment.

Artificial Grass is Recyclable

It is often considered that fake grass is not recyclable and ends up in landfills creating more mess. However, this is not the case at all. 

Artificial grass is manufactured from different recyclable products, which after its life cycle of 25 years, is melted down to produce new products through recycling.

Artificial Grass has Best Drainage

Eco-friendly fake turf simply drains the rain water through the surface and along the ground into the storm sewers. It is best practice to use that water for harvesting, later on, may be used for watering the plants and trees. In this way, it saves you money and you’ll be saving water.

Artificial grass does not offer Non-living Vegetation

Artificial grass does not provide a home for insects and pests to grow which makes it eco-friendly as compared to natural grass. It does not provide survival conditions to these unwanted creatures. Moreover, you can choose your desired plants, flowers and bushes when installing fake turf.
