What are the benefits of decorating with artificial grass?

Artificial grass has many advantages

Perhaps you have ever thought that artificial grass is not as beautiful as if it were natural, but the truth is that this is not the case. If it is well cared for, it is very difficult to tell - at least from a distance - if what we are looking at is a carpet of plastic grass, or one whose seeds were sown in the ground a few weeks ago.

Artificial grass is, in certain aspects, much more practical than natural grass, since we only have to cut the piece that interests us and place it on the ground. In addition, there are other benefits of decorating with artificial grass that we want you to know.

The main benefits of decorating with artificial grass

You can put artificial grass on land

Artificial grass has several benefits and advantages that natural grass does not. We have mentioned some of them before, but we are going to talk more about them:

We can choose the color of the artificial grass

Surely you think that there is only one color: green, and perhaps some shades of that color. It is undoubtedly the most common, and the one that is most used in the decoration of gardens and patios, but it is not the only one.

Today we can find white, red, yellow, lilac, pink artificial grass… Thus, if we are interested in having a very special corner, or very cheerful for example -like the children's play area-, we will have the option of combining various colors, or letting the little ones do it themselves. They will surely love designing their own leisure area!

They are made of various types

We no longer talk only about the color, but also about the thickness of the artificial grass and its quality. Depending on what and how much it will be used for, as well as who will enjoy it the most, It is important that the type of carpet that we are going to put is chosen very well.

Therefore, you have to know that in stores like TodoCESPED we find the following:

  • that of high end, which is softer and thicker and therefore ideal for children and/or people who love to walk barefoot, such as Everest 47;
  • that resistant, which are more recommended for gardens where there are pets, such as the Terra 40;
  • others who have a good value for money and that, without being high-end, are indicated for medium use, such as the Pyrenees 40;
  • and economic, especially recommended for decorating areas that are not going to spend much, such as Aínsa 27.

It allows you to save time and money

Keeping a natural lawn green and healthy implies having to spend a lot of water, mowing it relatively frequently, carrying out phytosanitary treatments if it has any pest and/or disease; and that's not to mention the re-seeding, which has to be done if it has suffered serious damage during the winter and/or summer.

With artificial grass you won't have to worry about any of that. Yes, you will have to clean it from time to time, either by removing the leaves that may have fallen by passing a broom, or even with a hose if an animal has relieved itself in it. But the amount of water needed for this is very low. compared to that spent on watering natural grass.

How to take advantage of artificial grass to decorate?

There is no doubt that artificial grass is much cheaper than natural grass, but of course, how do you decorate it? In what spaces can it be placed? Well the answer is that you can put it where you want: exposed to the sun, in shade; near the pool, in the patio,… wherever you prefer. Of course, keep in mind the type of grass you have bought, since as we have just seen, there are some that are more resistant than others.

And regarding how to use it to decorate, here are a few ideas that we hope will inspire you:

If you have dogs and/or cats, it is important that you choose a resistant artificial grass, so that it does not get damaged in case the animals relieve themselves and/or mark the territory. But in addition to that, in case you want to design the garden or the terrace giving them a rustic design, we advise you to put a green one.
