Save Money and Energy by Switching to Artificial Grass

Many Central Florida homeowners are constantly looking for ways to save money, time, and energy without sacrificing their outdoor space. While some popular methods — like smart sprinkler systems, energy-efficient fans, and low-fuss plants are great ways to do this, there is one unexpected way homeowners can conserve time, money, and energy: installing high-quality artificial grass.

DelaTurf is Central Florida's leading artificial turf installer and has helped countless households maximize their outdoor space while reducing maintenance and expenses and using less energy. In this blog, we will outline the ways that an artificial grass lawn can make your life easier while allowing you to live your best outdoor life.

Benefits of Artificial Turf Over a Natural Grass Lawn

  • 1. Reduced Water Bills

  • 2. Improved Drainage

  • 3. Minimal Upkeep

Artificial Grass Uses Less Water than Real Grass

One of the biggest benefits of artificial grass is that it requires far less watering than real grass. This savings on your water bill can be allocated to other outdoor improvement projects, and you won't have to stress about going a few weeks without rain — which, even in Florida, happens on more than one occasion. While natural grass may dry up and turn yellow without watering, Florida's average rainfall is more than enough to keep artificial turf hydrated. Reduced water usage is just one of the ways that lawn maintenance is virtually non-existent with a lawn made of artificial grass.

Artificial Grass Drains Better than Natural Sod

When it rains, it pours. Or at least in Florida, it does! Florida residents are undoubtedly familiar with heavy afternoon showers which bring walls of water. While these downpours can help lower the temperature on 90 degree days, they can also flood a natural lawn. Flooded natural lawns mean a few things: mud, mosquitoes, and maybe even gators! Artificial turf, on the other hand, is designed to flush excess water — so you can enjoy a Florida rainstorm without worrying about mosquitoes like you would with a traditional lawn.

Say Goodbye to Weeds, Pesticides, and Mowing

A beautiful lawn that doesn't require mowing, weeding, watering, or fertilizing? It might seem too good to be true, but it's just one of the reasons more and more homeowners are choosing artificial grass. By not mowing, homeowners can also reduce their carbon footprint — as the gasoline that would go into a mower can be expended elsewhere. On top of that, homeowners that hire lawn maintenance companies can allocate those precious dollars elsewhere. Artificial grass saves money, energy, and time, and more than earns back the initial investment.
