How Does Artificial Grass Save Money?
August 26, 2021
One of the biggest benefits of switching to synthetic grass landscaping is its long-term cost saving benefits. If you’re considering artificial grass, then you likely already know this. However, what we’re more often asked about is how exactly artificial turf saves you money. After all, the initial investment is more than with natural sod. While it is true that the initial cost of turf installation is greater than that of natural grass, over time, you’ll see a significant return on investment thanks to artificial turf’s low-maintenance nature.
One of the main ways in which artificial grass landscaping saves you money is by reducing your monthly water bill. For most homeowners, 30 percent of all water usage comes from exterior landscaping. By switching to synthetic turf, you’ll significantly reduce, if not eliminate, up to 30 percent of your water use and therefore save up to 30 percent on your water bill. This is because synthetic grass landscaping doesn’t need to be watered in order to remain green. The synthetic polyethylene fibers are designed to remain steadfast in their color; they’re even UV-resistant. Whereas natural grass requires daily watering in order to avoid browning, synthetic turf will look lush and vibrant all year long with no irrigation required. An occasional rinsing is recommended to remove any debris or dirt, but the lack of watering leads to enormous savings on your monthly water bill.
Another way in which artificial grass saves you money is by reducing lawn maintenance costs. The average monthly cost of maintaining real grass is about $300, or $3,600 per year. Even if you don’t employ a gardener, the price for maintenance supplies like fertilizer, weed killer, insecticides, a lawn mower, and gasoline can add up quickly. With synthetic grass landscaping, all of these supplies are rendered unnecessary. Since the synthetic blades never turn brown or grow long, there’s no need to mow, trim, fertilize, or re-sod. Simply rinse and cross-brush your turf on a regular basis and it will remain as lush and beautiful as the day it was installed. That’s thousands of dollars saved each year, plus more time for you to enjoy the green space with your family.
