Durability is often defined as the toughness of the material. Maintaining natural grass throughout the year is challenging because it can easily get in poor condition through extreme heat, rainstorm or colder weather. Many natural lawns require extensive maintenance throughout the year and cost thousands of dollars just to restore the beauty of the grass. Artificial grass remains consistent, season after season, as withstanding harsh weather conditions. Plus, no matter what time of year, you can guarantee a beautiful grass area with a soft cushioning underneath.
Studies show that natural grass should not be played on for more than 24 hours a week or at maximum 816 hours per year. Artificial grass can be used for 3,000 hours per year with no downtime required! Durability is known as the ability to resist wear and being resilient is being able to endure tribulation without cracking. Artificial grass is both with its powerful ingredients to withstand weather and its amazing ability to stand back up after that weather has passed!
Longevity is one of the main advantages of artificial grass when compared to natural grass. A surface as large a football field will not have to be replaced for five years or more. However, a natural grass field would have to be well-maintained on a regular basis and would still only last two years. Artificial grass pays for itself once you include factors such as repairs, re-leveling and water costs due to rough play and weather.
The newest generation of artificial turf has been proven to show a significantly lower rate of injuries than the past generations and natural grass. While the backing, infill and blades have changed, one thing still remains; artificial turfs will always be pesticide-free. It will never require treatments, fertilizers or weed killers like natural lawns.
As mentioned above, there is very little upkeep needed to maintain a gorgeous space when using artificial grass. There is no watering, fertilizing, or mowing. Plastic grass doesn’t die, grow or change colors based on weather inclement. All that is required is regular brushing with a non-metal brush, light rinsing and cleaning up after pets.
Artificial grass is proven to be more durable, in more ways than one, than natural grass has ever been. When compared to natural grass, artificial grass can withstand all weather, stand up to heavy object, last three times as long and provide the safety and low-maintenance lifestyle that so many people require these days.
