With more intense water restrictions, excessive summer heat and dwindling levels of rainfall in Australia’s more rural areas, it is no wonder why so many South Australians are switching to artificial grass in Adelaide. There are so many practical advantages of making the switch, in the form of lower water costs, easier maintenance, same aesthetic appeal, durability and pet-friendliness. Maintaining real turf can be difficult, especially given Australia’s recent volatile weather patterns – sustained heat and then periods of rain. If you want a lush lawn that will look great all the time, regardless of the weather and time of year, then you should consider installing fake turf in your home.
Maintenance made simple
One of the big plusses of artificial grass in Adelaide is the minimal maintenance required. Regardless of water or sunlight, fake lawns don’t need to be mowed, clipped or maintained anywhere near the same degree as real turf. There’s no need to buy an expensive lawn mower or to hire a gardening provider to do it for you. Synthetic turf doesn’t need to be treated with fertilisers or pesticides either, which is another cost saving!
Falling water costs
Buying artificial grass in Adelaide is also a great method of saving money on your water bills, or just conserving water resources in general. Indeed, your water usage will fall dramatically because you won’t need to water your lawn weekly or even daily (like you usually would during summer). So, if you’re looking for a smart way to save some money, consider switching to artificial grass in Adelaide.
When they were first introduced back in the 1960s, there were concerns that fake lawns would be toxic to pets and young children. Thankfully, these theories have been well and truly put to bed, since all types of synthetic turf contain no toxic substances. This means they are conducive to households with pets (dogs, rabbits, cats), so you can still easily pick up pet droppings in your backyard.
Fake turf has always rivalled authentic turf in terms of aesthetics and appearance. They retain their glossy colour, vibrant shape and consistency, regardless of the climate. Indeed, their visual appearance is one of the big reasons why they have become common use for professional sporting ovals.
In 1966, fake turf was installed in the Astrodome, which was the world’s first multi-purpose sporting stadium. Located in Houston Texas, the complex hosted several notable sporting events, including the renowned Battle of the Sexes tennis match, in which Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs. The complex also hosted six Elvis Presley concerts, a Muhammad Ali bout with Cleveland Williams and WrestleMania X-Seven in 2001.
Additionally, artificial grass in Adelaide has the added benefit of being incredibly durable, regardless of how intense the weather and climate might be. Real lawns can be damaged by heavy foot traffic and their ability to retain their shape and structure is greatly diminished. If you are someone that hosts a lot of parties and you have a large backyard that is a perfect location, then installing artificial grass would be a great decision. You won’t have to worry about damage to the lawn from the party – simply run a rake through the lawn to help the synthetic fibres return to their original shape and then you should be good to go.
Clearly, there are many practical advantages of installing artificial grass in your home. If you need to save money, want to have a ready-made party location and a backyard that is safe for your pets while looking awesome, then a fake lawn is the way to go.
