Beautiful green grass is a wonderful, hard-earned feature to any home. Keeping your grass lush and vibrant all year long is no small feat and really requires quite a bit of effort when it comes to maintenances as well as fertilizer and water. Lawn maintenance can take a lot of time and a lot of money so some people opt to have synthetic grass installed. Synthetic grass is a wonderful alternative to natural grass and has many color and style options that look incredibly realistic. Below are pros and cons of synthetic grass to help you choose what is right for you.

  • PRO: Realistic Looking
    • Some have preconceived notions of what synthetic grass will look like, or perhaps they have seen some old synthetic grass that did not look realistic. Today, synthetic grass has come a long way and it looks incredibly realistic. There are different textures and shades to enhance the natural look of synthetic grass and make it difficult for the naked eye to tell the difference.
  • PRO: Less Water
    • Depending on the climate in which you live, different lawns will require different amounts of water. Throughout the year, you will pour gallons upon gallons of water onto your lawn to keep it looking green and that is not only less eco-friendly but it is also quite costly. Synthetic grass does not require watering. You can use a hose to clean your synthetic grass but it will not need the regular watering that natural grass requires.
  • PRO: Low Maintenance
    • Synthetic grass requires little to no maintenance.   No watering, no mowing, no fertilizing, no weeding. Synthetic grass will save significant amounts time and money on maintenance and care.
  • PRO: Aesthetics
    • A synthetic lawn will look green all year long. Rain or shine, snow or scorching temperatures, your lawn will always be green and beautiful.
  • CON: Cost
    • Synthetic grass is significantly more expensive than having natural grass installed. Some may argue that, in the long run, the cost to maintain natural grass is actually more than the cost of synthetic grass. But, there is no disputing the fact that the up-front cost of synthetic grass is quite a bit higher than the alternative.
  • CON: Heat
    • During the hot summer, synthetic grass may become very hot because it absorbs heat. It may become too hot to play on or spend any time on.
  • CON: It Is Not Real
    • While there is quite a bit less maintenance, some people may be turned off by the fact that it is not real. There will be no smell of freshly cut grass from mowing and it will look slightly less realistic than the real thing. For some, they simply cannot get over this fact and prefer their lawn to be real. For others, the pros far outweigh the cons.
