Synthetic grass vs Natural grass


The information below is intended to help you make a decision on which is right for you, It is an un-biased look at the pros and cons of both natural turf and Artificial (also known as; Astro or Synthetic turf).

A nice lush green lawn has always been a desirable finish for any homeowner,  but due to many factors such as the rising cost of town water,  time constraints, shaded areas of lawns & lawn areas becoming smaller due to higher density housing and a lot of competing marketing information it has become a topic of debate of which solution is right for you.

But making the wrong decision may result in a huge loss of time, energy, natural recourses and money, so doing a bit of research beforehand can save you a whole lot of hassle later.

To help you decide we have summarised the key differences and factors to consider. 

The environmental benefits of artificial turf
  • No irrigation/watering

  • No mowing (reducing the use of fossil fuels)

  • No pesticides or herbicides required

  • Recycled materials used in the manufacturing process

 

Environmental concerns for artificial turf
  • Can cause issues with water run-off and leeching of chemicals into the stormwater system

  • Does not filter sediment & carbon

  • High carbon footprint (from manufacturing process & does not actively reduce carbon once installed)

  • Disposal at end of life

  • Requires cleaning (not ideal for use with pets)

  • Does not provide habitat for local wildlife

  • Provides no heat sinking & actually raises ambient temperature
