Artificial Grass Lawn Replacement—an Eco-Friendly Choice

August 25, 2017

Have you ever thought of artificial grass lawn replacement as an eco-friendly choice? At Watersavers Turf, a leader in synthetic turf sales, we know that most people care about saving our planet. Many of them are just finding out how products like ours can make a real difference. So what is it that makes artificial grass lawn replacement an eco-friendly choice? It’s a number of things. Saving water is one of the main reasons. People living in areas of drought know how critical their water supply is to their daily lives. They also know how costly it can be to keep a real lawn alive. The fact that it needs no water is a big part of what makes artificial grass lawn replacement an eco-friendly choice.

There are other reasons to see synthetic turf as an eco-friendly lawn solution. A natural lawn adds oxygen to the air. However, the air pollution caused by gas lawn mowers and trimmers cancels out that benefit. There is also groundwater pollution to be aware of. Too often it is caused by the chemical products that people commonly use to fertilize their lawns. All in all, the upkeep of a real sod yard can have a real impact on our Earth.

More people are starting to realize that having a natural lawn could be harming our planet. That is why they are looking for options that are more eco-friendly.

It can be installed outdoors and indoors. It can turn a flat roof into a lush patio. An empty city lot can be made into an inviting park area. You’ve probably seen it used at stadiums and golf courses. Be prepared to see it being used in many other places from now on.

Advances have also been made in the padding that is used under it. Also, new types of backing mean that today’s fake sod drains water away better and faster.
