Installing artificial grass might be the best decision you ever make. Have you ever taken a walk around your neighbourhood and admired someone else\u2019s front lawn? The old saying \u201cthe grass is always greener on the other side of the fence\u201d tends to ring true here, especially when your neighbour\u2019s lawn is thick, green and perfectly manicured. Of course, there are plenty of ways to improve the condition of your own lawn, but that requires time, money and effort. Who can be bothered? Luckily, there is a way to get a tidy, picture perfect lawn without a whole lot of effort. Artificial grass is the ultimate alternative if you\u2019re looking for a hassle-free, low maintenance garden. Check out some the benefits below! Artificial grass looks great when paired with a fibreglass or concrete swimming pool. 1. Artificial grass is low maintenance We all know the feeling of getting home from work and having to perform maintenance on the yard. Mowing, watering, edging, fertilising \u2013 is it really worth it? Synthetic grass stays tidy and clean all year round. You won\u2019t have to worry about watering it twice a day in summer and it will never become overgrown and unkempt. Best of all, it\u2019ll stay green in the dry months, meaning you\u2019ll have a lawn that will make your neighbours jealous in every season. You\u2019ll also have plenty more time to spend with family and friends, instead of spending all your free time maintaining your lawn. 2. Artificial grass will save you money All that mowing, watering, edging and fertilising won\u2019t just take up all your free time \u2013 it\u2019ll eat into your bank account as well! Artificial lawn won\u2019t just mean more free time for you, it will also mean more money in the pocket for a rainy day. You\u2019ll see a significant drop in your water bill, and you\u2019ll be able to stop throwing money away on fertiliser and maintenance equipment. As a bonus, you\u2019ll have a neat and tidy lawn that won\u2019t cost you anything in upkeep! We love this artificial lawn and basketball court combo! 3. Artificial grass is designed for Australian conditions Okay, we\u2019ll admit it \u2013 natural grass does look nice \u2013 especially when it\u2019s high quality and well maintained. Unfortunately it isn\u2019t always in a good condition, and once it begins to die it can be very expensive to bring it back up to scratch. This is why summer is such a tough time for people with natural lawn in their backyards. Here at Australian Outdoor Living we develop our grass with the Australian climate in mind. Our artificial lawn will hold its lush green colour even at the peak of summer, while your neighbours\u2019 natural lawn will turn yellow and dry. Our synthetic grass will make your backyard look like an oasis all year round. 4. Artificial grass is child and pet friendly If you\u2019ve had even a quick glance at the pictures on our website, you\u2019ll have noticed that pets seem to love artificial lawn! It\u2019s soft beneath their paws, and they can roll around on it as much as they like without getting dirty. This also means you won\u2019t have to spend hours getting those annoying prickles out of their fur! Synthetic grass is also free of any chemicals and pesticides that you might find in natural grass. This means your children and pets can play on it as much as they like without the dangers of any negative side effects. Installing artificial grass will give you more time to spend with the kids. 5. Artificial grass is great for the environment Obviously the water bill hits your hip pocket, but what kind of effect does it have on the environment? Natural grass requires constant upkeep to make sure it\u2019s looking its best, and this upkeep can potentially be harmful to the planet. When you consider water restrictions, pollution from lawn chemicals and carbon emissions from petrol lawn mowers, natural grass isn\u2019t actually very green at all. Artificial lawn lets you have your green backyard without the cost to both you and the environment! Artificial grass is the best choice for a busy lifestyle It\u2019s not just great for people with a busy lifestyle; it\u2019s also perfect for young families, couples, singles and people with investment properties. It also goes with any other backyard feature you can think of! Artificial lawn looks great around swimming pools or paired with a timber deck or concrete pavers. It can also withstand large amounts of traffic, making it perfect for households with children. Australian Outdoor Living is passionate about helping people love their life outdoors.
