The Pros of Installing Artificial Grass

Attention homeowners! If you want a green lawn all year round, you don’t have to shell out big bucks or dedicate hours of your time to maintenance and care, only to see your natural grass decimated by a heat wave or critter infestation.

It’s time to say goodbye to high water bills and multiple trips to the garden center for fertilizer and toxic pesticides. It’s time to think about artificial grass as a viable solution to your lawn care concerns.

We know you might be thinking that artificial turf looks tacky, but this isn’t the same AstroTurf people used decades ago. Artificial grass looks much more natural with improved technology and durability to provide you with an economical and environmentally-friendly alternative.

Before you decide if artificial turf is the right choice for your family, the team at JHC Landscaping Services has compiled all the best reasons for you to invest in an artificial lawn today. And of course, if you have any questions, our experts are standing by ready with the answers.

Benefits of Artificial Grass

From easy installation, excellent durability to environmentally friendly and economically conscious for your bank account, here are a few reasons why artificial turf could be the best landscaping decision you’ve ever made:

It’s Instant

Trying to grow a lawn from seed or even laying down sod can take several weeks or months to get the desired aesthetic. But with artificial grass, the installation can be done in a day and deliver instant results. Installation is super easy.

The remaining weeds and grass are removed and then the team lays a stone base to provide proper drainage for the area. Then, we roll out your artificial grass, taking the time to carefully cut the proper perimeters around trees, gardens, and walkways. We guarantee you’ll be impressed by its symmetrical, yet realistic look.

Save on Water

More than ever before, homeowners are looking for landscaping solutions that require zero water use. Artificial grass never needs to be watered, and it still maintains that luscious green grass looks that most desire.

This is going to give you back all the time you have spent in the past watering your grass and save you big bucks on your utility bills because there are no finicky, complicated sprinkler systems to be installed. And don’t worry, artificial landscape grass can still offer a very natural look to your property.

Little to no Maintenance

Not only will you save on your water bill, but you’ll save plenty of time because artificial grass requires little to no maintenance. There’s no lawn mowing, edging, or weeding required. There’s no investing in fertilizer several times per season or worrying about bugs and critters ruining your natural grass.

Were you thinking of hosting your street’s annual summer barbecue? You’ll never have to stress about the look of your lawn before the neighbors come over. If you’re someone who really wants some extra green space in your home or business, this is the perfect solution to maximize your curb appeal and possibly increase the value of your property when it comes time to sell.

No Pests

Installing artificial grass on your property means that you’re taking away the whole buffet for your neighborhood pests.

No soil means fewer insects which means you’ll no longer see many of the animals that hunt those insects like raccoons, snakes, and gophers.

With no natural grass and no soil, you also won’t have to worry about animals digging up your lawn because they simply can’t!

Long Lasting

Because artificial grass can withstand all the running, jumping, and sitting you can throw at it, these homeowners are more likely to use their backyards for recreational activities.

No amount of activity combined with mother nature’s wrath will turn your artificial lawn into a muddy, watery mess. Homeowners in the Greater Toronto Area greatly benefit from artificial grass because it’s unaffected by our unpredictable weather patterns.

No matter how long winter is or how dry summer is, your turf is going to look as green as the day it was installed.

artificial grass environmentally friendly

Environmentally Friendly

If you’re conscious of your family’s impact on the environment, then an artificial lawn might be the right choice for you. Unlike natural grass, turf doesn’t need harmful fertilizers and pesticides that can leak into the groundwater and storm water systems of our communities.

You’ll never have to fire up that smoke-spewing, gas-guzzling lawn mower again, downsizing your carbon footprint even further. A lot of artificial grass is made from recycled products like used tires so you’re cutting down on landfill waste as well.

Durable for Kids to Play

Installing artificial grass is the most durable, long-lasting solution for all your green space needs. No matter how much your kids or pets play on it, artificial grass will maintain its shape and its attractive, healthy green facade.

You’ll also never have to worry about your kids being exposed to harsh chemicals like pesticides and fertilizers because artificial grass maintains that fresh-cut look with zero effort required. If you hire professionals to properly install your artificial grass system, you should have zero concerns about replacing your turf for many years.
