Synthetic Turf – Environmentally Efficient
For a homeowner, what greater feeling is there than knowing you have the most beautiful lawn on the whole street? Synthetic turf keeps your lawn looking beautiful every day of the year with little to no maintenance. What is better than that? Well, how about that synthetic turf is overall better for the environment than just regular grass. I know what you are thinking, how is that even possible, right?
Every day, there are hundreds of people mowing their lawns throughout the world. Gas powered lawn mowers actually put eleven times more pollution into the air every hour than a car. Leaf blowers and weed whackers are not any better, either. Leaf blowers are actually even illegal in some areas. Unfortunately, you can’t just decide you are not going to mow your lawn anymore because of this either. If you do that, then your lawn will end up being the most hideous lawn on the street. Luckily, with synthetic turf there is no mowing involved. There is really no labor involved at all with synthetic turf.
If you live in a dry climate area, having a lawn can be a nightmare. In many dry climate areas, millions of gallons of drinkable water are dumped into lawns every single day, year round. Now, imagine what happens when there are water droughts. All that water just wasted and then when the water cannot be wasted anymore, how do you think the lawns look? That is right, horrible looking. Synthetic turf can be watered but it does not have to be. When you water synthetic turf, it then drains itself. That can give many people, especially people in the dry climate areas, peace of mind of conserving water.
Synthetic turf never needs fertilizer, unlike regular grass. When fertilizer is put on grass, it ends up in the ocean more times than not. Fertilizer is not made for sea life or any kind of life. It is polluting the environment and the sea life.
Synthetic turf is overall better for the environment. You also get to save on time, labor and money. Your lawn will look incredible every day of the year and you also get the peace of mind knowing you are taking your step to bettering the environment.
