Whether you’re a business looking to overhaul your landscaping or you’re a homeowner tired of constant lawn maintenance, the team at Ideal Turf is here to help. Today’s modern turf is designed to replace your existing lawn without sacrificing on quality and comfort. Considering the many benefits of artificial grass over natural grass, it’s no wonder so many people are turning to artificial turf here in Fort Worth, TX and across the country.

To help you make the right decision for your next project, we’ve decided to put together a short guide on why artificial turf is the obvious choice over natural grass.

Artificial Turf is a Low-Maintenance Natural Grass Alternative

One of the biggest benefits of artificial grass over natural grass is maintenance. Artificial grass requires far less maintenance than natural grass, meaning you can spend more time with your friends and family enjoying your beautiful outdoor space.

There’s no need to mow, water, or fertilize your lawn. In fact, all you need to do is clear off debris and potentially rinse off the turf if dirt or mud gets tracked onto your lawn. You may need to occasionally apply additional infill in high-traffic areas, but you’ll spend a fraction of the time doing regular maintenance on an artificial turf lawn compared to the maintenance that a natural lawn requires.

Artificial Grass is Cleaner Than Natural Grass Lawns

Artificial grass was designed not only to require little maintenance but to be naturally clean as well. Because there isn’t dirt, mud, and other debris that holds the grass in place, you won’t experience the same messy, muddy lawn that you’d get with a natural lawn during the rainy season.

Your artificial turf lawn is also ideal for your family, friends, and pets. No matter the weather, you’ll all be able to enjoy your yard without getting messy or ruining your yard. An artificial turf lawn allows your yard to look neat and tidy all year long.

Artificial Grass VS. Natural Grass Cost Difference

If you’re concerned with costs, you should consider an artificial turf lawn over a natural grass lawn. While the upfront costs may be slightly higher for an artificial lawn, you’ll end up spending a lot more money in maintenance and upkeep on a natural lawn. In fact, you can spend as much as three to four times as much on a natural lawn over a twenty-year period than you would on an artificial lawn in terms of maintenance and upkeep.

You’ll save on water costs, fertilizer costs, tool and equipment costs, and so much more when you choose a beautiful artificial turf for your lawn.

Synthetic Lawns Are More Durable Than Natural Grass Lawns

Artificial turf was designed to last. If your home or business experiences heavy foot traffic on your lawn, artificial turf is the way to go. The durable fibers and high-end design ensure that your turf will stand up to even the toughest challenge. Considering natural grass can be completely destroyed in the right conditions, a lawn that will stand up to virtually anything you throw at it is a no-brainer.
