A lush green lawn can boost the curb appeal of your home. However, the money you spend on watering your lawn may drain your resources. If you are worried about your skyrocketing water bills, it’s time to switch to synthetic grass. In fact, besides reducing your water bill, artificial grass also needs low maintenance, hygienic and is eco-friendly. So, it makes sense to switch and save time and money. Plus, we’re in the middle of a historic drought.
Saving on Money
One of the main reasons why fake grass has caught the imagination of house owners is the reduction in watering costs. This reduction can be quite significant.
Yes, the upfront cost of installing artificial grass is higher than sod. Fake grass costs anywhere from $5 to $20 per square foot. Thereafter, for the next 15 to 20 years, you don’t have to worry about spending anything on it.
On the other hand, sod comes across as a more affordable option, as per square foot when installed by professional costs around 14 to 60 cents. But thereafter you have to spend big bucks on maintaining it. You would have to water it regularly, weed it, mow it and fertilize it. This means spending money and time to maintain the look and feel of the sod.
With no worries about watering, fertilizing or mowing the lawn,synthetic grass is the way forward if you are looking to save money and time. Of course, you would still have to hose down your pet’s urine and get it professionally sanitized, but it is worthwhile spending this money as you will saving substantially on your water bill.
So, go ahead and switch to synthetic grass today and use the savings for more important things in life.
