With the warmer seasons coming very soon in Melbourne – not quickly enough it must be said – now is the time to think about caring for your garden and lawns. Whilst we have had abnormally high levels of rain, this spring is projected to provide below average rainfall, with this most likely to continue in the summer. For properties that have a smaller front and/or backyard, this means that maintaining your lawn and garden areas may be a time consuming affair.
Fake grass, luckily, is but one of the many solutions that is presented to avoid costly water bills, and to keep maintenance as minimal as possible. In this article, we’re going to be discussing the benefits that synthetic grass in Melbourne can provide for you during the next few months of minimal rainfall. These benefits will help homes and businesses alike, and will prove to cut costs and provide you with more leisure time.
Minimal water bills
One of the advantages of having fake grass installed on your property is the lack of water that it requires. Whilst Victoria has not suffered the severe drought that states like New South Wales have experienced recently, it will provide you with peace of mind for when drought does strike. Actual grass that covers 50 m2 can use up to 30,000 litres of water on average, making synthetic turf a much more attractive option.
Easier to maintain
Owing to the ever increasingly, fast-paced nature of our daily lives, mowing, weeding, and raking can become chores that you simply don’t have time to do. Synthetic lawns require little maintenance, and will still look green, no matter how busy you are. In the event that there is debris on your artificial lawn, it will not fade or damage the fibres, like it would with real grass if it is left there for a long time.
No colour fading
One problem that actual grass has is when it turns yellowish during the warm, summer months. This is both due to a smaller catchment of water during this time, as well as an increase in UV radiation affecting the pigment of the grass blades. Artificial grass does not fade in this way, and can remain looking great and lush, no matter the lack of rain or how intense the light and heat are.
