The Perfect Lawn: Natural vs. Synthetic Grass

People have always been connected with nature which is why the passion for a beautiful garden has always been present. There’s nothing like a beautiful, well-kept natural lawn because it provides the perfect opportunity to be at one with nature. Lawns have long been part of people’s homes, so much so that even mowing them has been quite the tradition. It’s not difficult to see why because grass has a sort of emotional value; I still remember the fun I used to have with my siblings, rolling around in that vastness or green, looking for insects to explore. Kids and pets are huge fans and if maintained properly it can last for years and years. Fun on the lawn can keep you out all day.

However, there’s more to having a breathtaking lawn than meets the eye. There are two grass options one can choose from, either go for the natural one or the synthetic one. With the chance to do online shopping nowadays, it won’t be of trouble finding quality grass, you’d know it when you come across shops with plenty of varieties of plants for sale Melbourne round, but it takes weighing in both the pros and cons of the two options to be able to make the right choice. If you do decide to go for natural, you’d avoid all the installation costs and with the adequate amount of maintenance, you’d have that fresh green lawn look all the time. Then again, you’d also have to consider everything that’s part of maintenance – irrigation, fertilising, weed and pest control, as well as all the mowing. All this takes up time and money.

With synthetic grass, on the other hand, you’d get a less demanding alternative that initially costs more with the installation, but it compensates with the low maintenance costs. Perhaps it you look into it closely, you’d get to notice it’s not the real deal, but knowing it could last more than a decade, without the need for water, nutrients, weeds and pests, including mowing, it’s more than a worthy investment to make. Don’t think you’d be completely chores free because there is still some maintenance to do, such as grooming, brushing and even refilling as often as necessary. Unlike with the natural alternative, the synthetic one has less of a positive environmental impact considering it’s made of petrochemicals, so that could be listed as a con if you’re more eco-aware. In any case you are sure to find both types of grass plants for sale Melbourne shops offer.

Make the wise decision that works best for you having the pros and cons in mind of both variants, do the necessary maintenance and be prepared for amazing results with lots of yard picnics to follow!
