					Is Using a Synthetic Lawn Safe for the
            Environment?
Using artificial turf has become the preferred choice of those who are looking for
affordability and efficiency. Its popularity has been steadily increasing – with
more homes, companies, schools and sports teams using it.


Aside from looking and feeling like real grass, maintenance for synthetic grass is
not unreasonable at all.


It does not grow (so can you save on mowing expenses) and it does not need
water to survive (water expense savings). The only thing that needs to be
regularly done is to make sure that it is regularly cleaned from wastes and debris
– which is a basic sanitation procedure.


On the other hand, there are those who are questioning the environmental
effects of an artificial turf. In reality though, such claims are unfounded, as many
are just allegations that haven’t been proven.


Here are the answers to the question of whether using artificial turf or lawn are
safe for the environment:


Artificial Lawns Do Not Use Pesticides


Remember that synthetic means artificial. So, it does not need to be watered for
survival, which means no water wastage.


In addition, there is no need to use pesticides or fertilizers to maintain such
synthetic grasses. As you may well already know, pesticides and other chemicals
can be quite harmful to the environment. Fortunately, one won’t encounter this
problem when using synthetic turfs.
It Does Not Produce Waste

Since synthetic grasses don’t grow – you don’t need to mow it at all. Being so, you
do not have to worry about grasses that pile up after being mowed. So, that’s
another point for the environment.


Of course, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do any cleaning at all. Sanitation is a
very important aspect of synthetic turf use. But instead of regular mowing and
rigid maintenance operations – all that you need to do is to just pick up leaves,
twigs, athletic tapes, garbage, bottles and others wastes to keep the landscape
clean. You may also want to hose it up once in a while to ensure that its colors
remain as they should be, and that durability is not compromised.


It Provides You with a Reason to Stay Home


Since synthetic lawn can be used for recreation both for kids and adults – then
this means that you will spend less time on travelling on your car or vehicle just to
go to the park or to sports courts. So, you are able to spend less on the road,
which means less CO2 emissions from your car – and a better environment for all.
Remember, every little step counts.


These are just some of the environmental benefits of using synthetic lawn in
Perth, or wherever you are in Australia. If you want to know more, consult with a
professional synthetic lawn specialist to ensure that every aspect remains are
handled as efficiently as possible. Good luck!
