Artificial Grass & Turf Vs. Real Grass
Artificial Grass Vs. Real Grass (Benefits of Artificial Grass)
Artificial grass is a style that has been sweeping the Sacramento, CA area, and we often have customers asking us whether they should get artificial grass or lay real sod.
There are pros and cons to each, but we think that when it comes to practical considerations for making your Sacramento, CA home beautiful, there is absolutely no comparison between artificial grass and real grass: artificial grass wins every time.
- First, artificial grass does not have to be mowed. It never invades garden beds or overgrows sidewalks or retaining walls. Rather than spending several hours every weekend mowing your lawn, you can spend that time enjoying the lawn that is always green, always short, and always exactly where you want it to be.
- Second, artificial grass requires no water. In semi-arid Sacramento, we often have to worry about our water consumption during the dry season, and this leaves dry patches and dead spots in our lawns. We waste thousands of gallons of water watering grass that is not feeding us or giving us any real benefit; instead, it is just sitting there like a very thirsty decoration. What if you could have the beautiful green look and soft texture of grass without ever having to water it again? This is the most environmentally responsible option, as it can cut your water usage tremendously.
- Third, artificial grass is every bit as beautiful as natural grass at its best, and many times more beautiful than natural grass that is thirsty or subject to some whim of the weather. Your neighbors will admire your green lawn and ask how you manage to keep your grass as beautiful as you do, when they are watering as much as they can and their grass is still dying. Artificial grass from Paver Stones Sacramento is soft and pleasant underfoot, unlike sharp and poky artificial grass from years past.
- Finally, artificial grass is much more versatile than real grass. You cannot put real grass on an upstairs balcony or patio, but if you have an apartment without a yard and want the feel of nature when you walk outdoors, you can put real grass on your balcony and have a beautiful little yard ready-made for you to enjoy.
