With global warming becoming an increasing problem, people are beginning to think of ways to become more environmentally friendly. Car shares, pushbikes and switching off electricals are all very common measures for negating the effects of global warming but not many people think about their gardens. Although natural gardens seem nice, you could be more environmentally friendly by opting for artificial grass. Not only will your garden look greener with artificial grass, it will also be greener; below, we’ve discussed the reasons why.
Less Water Will Be Used
As artificial grass keeps its length and bright colour for years, you won’t need to worry about ensuring your lawn gets water to keep it alive. This means you’ll be wasting a lot less water as you won’t be using your hose pipe as much. Not only is this environmentally friendly, but it will also mean you’ll be saving money as your water bill will decrease.
No Need for a Lawn Mower
Lawn mowers produce a lot of pollution that many people are unaware of. On average, a lawn mower produces approximately the same emissions as around 40 cars running for an hour. If you get artificial grass installed, you won’t have a need for a lawn mower as the lawn will keep its length forever; therefore, you will be decreasing pollution, which will be better for the environment.
Less Need for Pesticides
Pesticides are used to kill pests and weeds in gardens and are actually very harmful to water, soil, small animals, and humans. Artificial grass will not require the use of pesticides as you will have banished weeds, and pests will not have anything to eat and therefore are less likely to be in your garden. This will make your garden both environmentally friendly and safe for children and pets to play on.
