Grass: Natural or Artificial?
On this occasion, we analyze in our blog two options to enjoy a green and good-looking garden. As a gardening company in Houston, Texas, at Newton Texas Network- Commercial and Residential Gardening we carry out projects with both products. The use of one or the other will depend on the different elements that we are going to analyze below.
Each type of lawn has outstanding benefits for aesthetics, health and, why not say it, for the pocket. There are also cases in which the architectural circumstances of a certain enclosure only allow the installation of one, the artificial one, in most cases.
BENEFITS OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS
Always green: This is the main advantage of artificial grass since it is not affected by any type of external agents such as heat, pests, or the absence of proper maintenance (lack of irrigation, etc.). For all these reasons, this type of grass remains green 365 days a year.
Water-saving: By not needing continuous irrigation, water-saving is one of its main strengths. Of course, for optimal maintenance, it is necessary to treat it with a good hose from time to time accompanied by a brushing that serves to clean it correctly.
Off-road: Artificial grass can be placed on practically any surface or flooring (attic, playground, rooftop, etc.).
Time-saving: Since it does not require regular watering or mowing, you do not have to spend a lot of time maintaining this lawn. Another added advantage is that hardly any machinery or products such as lawnmowers or fertilizers are required.
As a gardening company in Houston, Texas, at Newton Texas Network- Commercial and Residential Gardening we also develop artificial grass installation projects. Ask us without obligation!
BENEFITS OF NATURAL LAWN
Prevents erosion and absorbs rain: Natural grass forms a natural carpet, which, thanks to its extensive network of roots, adheres to the ground preventing erosion. In addition, for the same reason, it absorbs a large amount of water in the event of rain, becoming a good natural resource to prevent flooding.
Controls the temperature: This type of grass acts as a natural air conditioner because in those places where it is installed it reduces the temperature of the ground level significantly (nothing comparable to asphalt or concrete). According to experts, a space of grass equal to eight houses has the capacity to cool about 70 tons of air.
Reduces noise and prevents pollution: Reduces the impact of sound between 20% and 30%, because instead of amplifying or bouncing it, it absorbs it. On the other hand, at the same time, natural grass also absorbs air pollution from its surroundings.
