Pros and Cons Of Artificial Grass Versus Turf

As we sell both products at Bayside Garden Supplies, I have included some information You may find interesting.

Pros of Artificial Grass

Water conservation

One of the main reasons artificial grass has become so popular is because of the water savings it offers.

Natural turf proponents have admitted that people often water their grass too much, making synthetic turf the winner on this point.

Appearance

Gone are the days of where synthetic grass would stick out like a sore thumb and everyone could tell in an instance it was fake. Nowadays artificial grass options are almost limitless and can trick almost anyone who looks at it, into thinking it is real.

Synthetic turf is UV stabilized to protect against color fading. Unlike natural turf that will have to deal with diseases, drought and dormancy, artificial grass has the benefits of looking great 24/7 all year long. It can also be used to spruce up spaces where it isn’t feasible to grow a lawn.

Durability

Natural lawns can be fickle and demanding, needing much tender loving care to stay looking their best, but synthetic turf is far less needy.

Pros of Instant Turf (real Grass).

Temperature

Artificial turf has been documented to be a lot hotter than natural grass under identical conditions. This is because natural grass has water within it allowing it to have cooling properties.

Environmental Concerns

One of the biggest arguments against artificial turf has been the use of recycled rubber tire crumb as an infill. Because tires have heavy metals and other pollutant content there has been some concern that they contain carcinogens. Recent reports of soccer players who played on artificial fields being diagnosed with cancer has also raised suspicions but current studies say there is not an elevated health risk.

Cost

Having an artificial lawn installed is costly. Homeowners have to have pay for grass removal, ground prep, (crushed rock) and the irrigation system, if they want to control the temperature of the grass.

Feel

There’s nothing like the feel of real grass under your feet and natural turf wins this one hands down.
