Pros & Cons of Artificial Turf

artificial grass

At some point or another most homeowners have found themselves considering replacing their grass turf with artificial turf. Let’s face it; maintaining a lawn is a lot of work. It requires regular mowing on a weekly basis and watering multiple times a week. A lawn also needs to be fertilized but different fertilizers depending on the time of the year.

A homeowner also needs to have different types of herbicides for all the different types of weeds and be able to know what weed requires what products. Not to mention that these can be costly if they choose to utilize a professional company for these services. This can make the idea of switching to an artificial turf extremely appealing. 

But switching to fake grass is a big decision and a major investment. There is a lot to consider to ensure you are making the right decision for your home. Here is a list of pros and cons for replacing your grass to try to make this decision a little easier:



Choosing to switch from a natural grass to an artificial turf option is a big decision for any homeowner. When weighing the cost of maintaining natural grass types versus the initial investment of an artificial turf, these two options will often break even.

Obviously, the actual maintenance of an artificial lawn is significantly less than a natural option.

But if the maintenance requirement is the main benefit of an artificial turf, you might consider outsourcing the mowing and treatment to professional companies.
