When you take a look at your lawn maintenance tasks for the year, does it feel like there's a neverending list of chores? Artificial grass may be the answer you've been searching for, and it's come a long way since its inception in the '60s. Gone are the days of ugly, obviously fake turf – the artificial turf of today is extremely natural-looking and beautiful on a lawn. Artificial grass is low maintenance, requiring no mowing, watering, fertilizer, weed control, or other treatments that natural grasses would need to thrive. It stays green all year-round, and you also don't need to worry about pest infestations or lawn diseases, either. Sound too good to be true? It's not! Read on for more details on how artificial grass can make these dreams a reality.

Artificial Turf Is Low Maintenance, Costing Time & Money

Between mowing weekly but also not cutting grass too short, watering your lawn enough but not too much, adding fertilizer constantly, worrying about weed control, and all the other "shoulds" that you have bouncing around in your head, maintaining live grass is a lot to manage. On top of that, all these tasks cost time and money. Wouldn't it be nice if you could reap the rewards of a lush lawn without all this stress? The answer: an artificial lawn.

Artificial grass is as low maintenance as could be, requiring no mowing, watering, fertilizing, weed control, or any other treatment that live grass needs to thrive. If you have pets using your lawn as a restroom, you can add infill to your turf every year or two to help with the odor, but for the most part, that's as deep as it gets for extra treatments.

Cleanup is a breeze – give your artificial grass a good spray with the hose and that will prevent dust and debris from accumulating on the surface.

Artificial Grass Stays Green All Year, Rain or Shine

Each season brings something different, and challenges will vary depending on whether you have cool-season grass or warm-season grass. It's a lot to keep track of, and after all that, you'll still have entire seasons where real grass turns brown and dormant. For cool-season grass, summer can even be a dormancy season due to the heat, so your summer barbeque will potentially not have that beautiful green grass as the backdrop. With artificial turf, you don't have this issue.

Artificial grass not only stays green all year, but it stays the specific shade of green that you like. You can choose from several shades, from deep blue-green to a bright, vibrant green if that's your preference. Whatever you choose, that color will stay true rain or shine. Every time you glance out the window, you'll be greeted with the beautiful green hue you've always yearned for. Now that's luxury!

Say Goodbye to Threats of Pest Infestations & Lawn Disease

With live lawns, you will need to be vigilant every month of the year for the upcoming challenges and threats to its health, from pest infestations to lawn diseases trying to weaken your lawn. Not only can these threats cause widespread issues in your lawn, but pests can even cause harm to people and pets. With artificial turf, those fears are washed away. With no need for chemical applications of herbicides, pesticides, or whatever else, you'll be able to enjoy your yard without any pesky intrusions.
