Natural vs synthetic turf – which one is better?
Asking that is like asking us to pick a favourite child, but we’ll do our best! In reality, there are distinct benefits to each kind of turf – it may just be up to what works better for you.
Both can be installed fairly quickly, are suitable for all the members of your family (children and pets included), and provide a soft, safe surface to enjoy.
Natural turf is, of course, the original go-to. Some people like the way that it looks more than fake grass; others choose this grass for the environmental benefits. The downside, however, is that this type of grass requires lots of regular maintenance like watering or mowing and may require the use of pesticides and weedkillers to keep its healthy look.
Artificial turf is more durable and can withstand more use, which is why so many sporting centres and council facilities around Australia are investing in synthetic turf surfaces. If your lawn gets a lot of use and you don’t have the time to perform the regular maintenance needed to keep it in usable shape, you may want to consider going artificial.
Maintenance is a key factor with artificial grass; it requires far less attention than regular grass. In terms of cost, artificial grass costs more for installation; however, in the long run, it is more cost-effective, cutting your water bills.
Ultimately, the choice is yours – both can make a beautiful Rippleside lawn. If you need help deciding what type of turf would be best for you, don’t hesitate to reach out!
