Turf Wars: Artificial Turf vs. Natural Grass.
There’s no doubt there’s something special about the smell of freshly mowed grass wafting through the air. It evokes memories of warm weather and brighter days and it seems like nothing could even come close to measuring up. Then, artificial turf came on the scene.
When it comes down to choosing sides, you understandably want to side with the one that is going to look the best and be the most eco-friendly, low maintenance, and cost-effective in the long run. Even though it might be hard to bid adieu to the smell of freshly mowed grass every week, synthetic turf fields offer a number of benefits and advantages that natural grass fields just can’t compete with.
Here are some of the many areas where artificial turf beats out natural grass:
Artificial Turf is Lower Maintenance
One of the main reasons for installing a artificial turf field is to save time and money on maintenance. Because artificial turf doesn’t require watering, mowing, or chemical treatments, it is a time saving and less costly alternative to natural grass. Not to mention it has a much longer life span.
Artificial Turf is Greener
Artificial turf has a measurable, positive impact on the environment. Artificial turf conserves water and eliminates the need for harmful pesticides and fertilizers—a main cause of water pollution. Artificial turf also helps reduce noxious emissions from maintenance equipment and mowers needed to maintain natural grass.
Artificial Turf Provides a Better Return on Investment
Artificial turf is highly cost-effective. Those who choose artificial turf over natural grass often recover the installation costs within a few years by reducing the need for water and lawn maintenance costs. Furthermore, many schools often rent their artificial turf fields to teams and organizations to bring in extra funding while the reduction in the sports field maintenance budget frees up even more funds.
Artificial Turf Can Stand Up to Mother Nature
Artificial turf is ideal for inclement weather climates. Maintaining natural grass can be particularly challenging in cold or very hot climates and is generally in poor condition after long winter months, requiring extensive maintenance and re-leveling each spring. Artificial turf fields remain uniform and consistent, season after season.
Artificial Turf is More Resilient
Another one of the major benefits of artificial turf is that it is very difficult to damage. And when you call on Turfix from the get-go for proper installation and maintenance, you can expect your artificial turf field to stay in pristine condition for years—no matter how much you use it.
The bottom line is that Turfix lawn turf is best for your bottom line.
