The weather in Austin is, for the most part, is dry and humid. It does not rain as much as in other parts of the country, so real grass isn’t practical. If anything having natural grass can end up costing you a pretty penny in water bills and maintenance.
Here are a few reasons why Waterloo Turf recommends artificial turf:
Easier To Care For and Maintain
When you have natural grass, it will grow, which means regular mowing; it also requires watering and fertilizer. If you don’t have a gardener taking care of this, then it means you’ve got to do it yourself. Plus, factor in the costs associated with maintaining the grass, which will depend solely on the weather. Artificial turf requires very little work on your part, if any. That means you can focus on other aspects of your yard and just make sure to clean the turf every now and then.
Keeping it Green
Long winter months and bouts of droughts, both of which are synonymous with the weather in Austin, can end up leading to your grass appearing brown. While we enjoy time on our grass, nobody wants to spend time on dry and brown grass, which, if anything, destroys the appearance of your lawn. Artificial turf helps to do away with the stress of having to deal with dry grass. The turf will stay green all year round, regardless of what type of weather it is faced with.
Environmentally Friendly Grass
Many people choose artificial turf installation in Austin because natural grass isn’t environmentally friendly. You need to power up gas-powered equipment and use lots of water and pesticides to maintain natural grass. While these can help to keep the grass green, they are also not environmentally friendly. Artificial turf makes it possible to enjoy a green lawn but without the adverse effects associated with it. Some people also enjoy the fact that artificial turf does not attract as many insects while still being pet-friendly.
Turf Installation For Drought Tolerant Landscapes
Did you know that landscaping makes up 60% of your total water usage? Having a natural grass lawn will mean that it consumes up to a whopping 55 gallons of water annually for every square foot. That works out to be 44,000 gallons of water for an 800 square foot lawn. Installing artificial turf means that you can save up to 660,000 gallons of water in 15 years. Not to mention the amount of money you’d save on maintenance.
Austin, Texas, has its fair share of drought seasons, when water is scarce yet precious, which is why as a home or business owner, reducing your hydration footprint does the environment a great deal of good.
