Besides the occasional hosing down of the blades with water, artificial turf requires little to no maintenance. This strongly contrasts with sod lawns, which need constant trimming in addition to watering, nurturing, seeding, weeding, and even chemical treatments. Without these repetitive treatments, sod can succumb to intense summer heat, fungi, pests, and damage from foot traffic.
It can also lose its texture and develop unsightly brown spots, which can be difficult to remedy. On the other hand, Artificial grass stays consistently immaculate regardless of weather, season, or intensity of foot traffic. It does not wither, tear, or succumb to pests and fungi.
California suffers from frequent droughts. This necessitates tight water restrictions from local and county officials. As such, maintaining natural grass lawns can be very costly. Consider the fact that the average lawn utilizes approximately 55 gallons of water per square foot. This is an astronomical amount of water, most of which goes to waste.
Additionally, there are landscaping chores that must be performed regularly. These can include trimming, watering, nurturing, seeding, weeding, and even the use of chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. These tasks cannot be ignored or avoided in a place like Los Altos, where home values are a huge factor. With artificial grass, the landscaping costs associated with these chores are largely eliminated. Synthetic turf requires no water, chemicals, trimming, nor tedious and expensive landscaping labor.
With little to no maintenance comes huge environmental benefits:
- Artificial grass uses only a fraction of the water that traditional grass uses. This is extremely advantageous, especially in California, which suffers from frequent droughts and subsequent water restrictions.
- With artificial grass, there is no need to run gasoline or diesel-powered lawn equipment for hours on end just to keep your lawn looking nice. This reduces diesel and gasoline emissions, which have been cited repeatedly as the leading causes of smog and other atmospheric pollution. And since synthetic grass does not require the use of chemicals, there is no risk of ecological damage.
