5 Chores that Artificial Grass Eliminates
A nice, manicured lawn is great when it’s someone else’s, but if you’re the one putting all the time and energy into keeping it pristine, it can be an ongoing annoyance. Want a lawn that never gives you any hassle?
Maybe it’s time to think about artificial grass! Just like a plastic plant in the corner that you’d swear was real, artificial turf can give your lawn a perpetual just-cut look without the endless fertilizing and mowing and yelling at the neighborhood kids to keep off of it. Here are five chores you can officially say goodbye to if you opt for artificial turf:
Mowing: An obvious one, but probably your least favorite type of yard work unless you have a fancy riding lawnmower. If you live somewhere with year-round sun, this can be particularly frustrating since there’s no annual break from mowing. Add to that the cost of lawnmower maintenance and repair, gas, and the price of replacing any flowers you didn’t mean to mow down, and lawn mowing can get pricey! Artificial turf means you’ll never need to mow again.
Fertilizing: Everyone wants a pristine yard, but nobody wants weeds – and the easiest way to do this is to fertilize with a weed-and-feed product. But this also means putting chemicals into the soil (which never feels great) and spending time and money spreading a bag of them when you’d rather be watching the game.
Weeding: Applications doesn’t kill all weeds all the time, which means that you’ve probably at one point or another found yourself hunched over your lawn, swearing at dandelions and wondering how humans have evolved to care this much about an invasive flower. Stop the hunched weeding and the existential crisis in one fell swoop with artificial grass!
Watering: Particularly if you live in a warm climate, your lawn probably needs watering when it’s dry to avoid looking like the scene of a post-apocalyptic movie. But water conservation in areas of drought often mean that not only will your lawn wilt and go brown, but you may not be able to water it when it needs water the most. Artificial grass eliminates this problem by looking green and pristine at all times – no watering required!

Insect control: If you’ve ever had an ant problem, you know what a headache that is. Even if they don’t make their way inside your house, they’re still annoying if you want to spend any time on your lawn doing anything that involves food. Artificial grass will cause ants to naturally migrate to your neighbor’s lawn (take that, Dan!), leaving your lawn insect-free and perfect.
Still not convinced? There are quite a few other things you might not think of – re-seeding worn areas of your lawn, for example, or fixing holes that form as a result of foot traffic on natural lawns. If you want to save time and money on yard work, artificial grass can make your life easier!
