As global warming becomes more prevalent, we are all looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and protect our planet. Whilst nothing is 100% eco-friendly, there are many ways cheap astro turf is better for the environment than real turf.
Let’s start with water - the average UK garden requires hundreds of litres of water per year, to keep the grass green and alive. With astro turf, you can save the planet and money on your water bill, as it doesn’t need to be watered! The rain will do it’s bit keeping your grass clean, you’ll just need to hose it down every so often if your pets do their business on it.
Many people also laden their natural turf with toxic chemicals and fertiliser to help it grow and keep weeds out. Installing a cheap membrane under your artificial grass is enough to keep out pesky weeds, meaning no more chemicals leaking into the water system, and a much safer environment for your children and pets to play.
We also have maintenance, think of all the fumes being put into the environment mowing your lawn every weekend with that petrol-guzzling machine. The beauty of artificial turf is that you can choose a length that is right for you, and it will stay that way, no trimming required!
As you can see there are many surprising ways that artificial astro turf can be more eco-friendly than natural turf, so why not make the switch?
