Sports fans are conscious of the benefits synthetic turf provides on a playing field, but that’s not the only place artificial grass can be used effectively. Artificial turf considered to be a good thing for homeowners interested in drought-tolerant landscaping also offers beautiful curb appeal and relaxing spot for family, guests, and pets.

What are the benefits of artificial grass? Let's take a closer look at some of the advantages of synthetic turf and how it may shape your lifestyle.

1. Saving money

The long-term expenses related to artificial turf are low. There is no water, mowing, fertilization, or pests control. All you need to do is occasionally use a leaf blower to remove debris.

2. Saving time

After installation, artificial turf is ready for use. Installing sod takes much longer, and service costs are often steep. Landscaping contractors charge from $45 to $75 per hour. On average, homeowners spend between $1,025 and $2,680 to prepare the ground and install rolls of grass. As time goes, some areas will wear down more than others, making the lawn look patchy and uneven. Every spring, you can look forward to replanting or reseeding the grass to meet esthetic norms. None of these problems related to natural grass is present with artificial turf.

3. Reuse

When it’s time to replace artificial turf, the procedure is less costly and more comfortable. You can reuse fake grass for other landscape applications, for example, creating weed-free garden paths or pets runs.

4. Easy maintenance

Artificial turf won’t fade, rip, or tear. It is also designed to prevent staining. Synthetic fibers won't absorb Barbecue sauce, wine, cooking oil, chocolate, blood, grease or motor oil, ketchup, gravy, or salsa, including urine from our canine and feline friends. Also, cleaning up pet messes is a simple matter on artificial turf since it drains well and can be washed easily with a hose.

5. Safety

An artificial lawn doesn't need harmful pesticides and herbicides to stay green. These chemicals are unsafe for your kids and pets, who often come into direct contact with a grass surface. Also, fertilizers pollute runoff water systems and hurt the environment.

6. Environmentally-Friendly

As good as natural grass appears to be, it comes with a host of environmental issues. The use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals keep lawn green, but pollutes water and poses potential health threats. Artificial grass is safe, 100% lead-free, and helps to reduce carbon emissions, conserve water, and help the environment in ways you probably didn't think were possible.

7. Lush Garden

Trees will grow perfectly encircled by artificial grass. With natural lawn, trees can cause problems. Large trees overshadow lawn stifling the grass growth; beneath the foliage, their roots compete with your grass for resources. In the fall, thick piles of leaves can kill sections of your lawn. One of the extra-fabulous advantages of switching to artificial turf is saying goodbye to tedious, time-consuming fall lawn care.

The advantages of synthetic turf prevail those of natural grass. If you’re interested in saving cash, saving water, and creating a home with an exclusive landscape, artificial turf is the option you’re seeking.

Artificial grass has many advantages, but its capacity to store thermal energy is not one of them. Synthetic lawns get too hot to be safe and comfortable according to the study of researchers from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and the Desert Research Institute (DRI) done in 2006 and 2007. Please, pay attention to the latter. Back in 2006, we had George W. Bush for a president of the United States. .


Whether you plan on adopting ideas or creating a personalized garden, you should have a basic understanding of the principles of landscape design.

The idea of decorating rooftops with solar panels has been around for a while, but an international team of scientists came up with a new concept of using artificial grass to generate energy. Apparently, synthetic fibers can work as a miniature wind turbine, producing power for the home with every breeze.

The turboelectric generator (TENG) uses strips of artificial grass to generate an electric current. One side of a fiber blade can be coated with nanowires while the other with indium tin oxide. As the wind blows, fibers come into a contact with each other. It allows electrons to pass from one piece of grass to the next, generating an electric flow.


Tor Mclean, the resident of Lafayette, California, solved the California historic drought issue at his own backyard. He tore away his water-thirsty lawn and turned it into a beautiful, eternally green retreat that requires zero maintenance and lowers approximatly 70% of his monthly water bill. Plus, he is getting a rebate from East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) to decrease the cost of transition.
