Yard care is a big consideration for many homeowners. Real grass is high maintenance, expensive to water and even more expensive to replace when it burns or damages as a result of bad weather or pests. As an alternative, artificial grass may be perfect for some homeowners. Below are some reasons for and against turf.
For: No Maintenance: Artificial grass does not need mowing, edging, sod replacement, seeding, or watering. Once you lay it down your done. You will need to vacuum from time to time.
Against: Initial Expense: Prices for turf can range from $8-14 dollars per square foot. You can find sales and deals, but, as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for!". The upside is you won't need to re-sod or re-seed it.
