Sept. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- The saying that the grass is always greener on the other side has literally come true due to increasing number of gardeners switching to artificial turf. Artificial grass does not require maintenance, doesn’t need mowing and it can last more than five years.

According to a recent survey, the use of fake lawn surface has gone up by 35 percent as compared to last year. But critics point out that fake turf is an environmental disaster as no ecosystem can survive below a synthetic turf. With the nation suffering from the driest summer in decades, gardeners have found a foolproof way to beat patchy grass lawns.

As increasing number of gardeners opt for synthetic lawns, the sales of artificial lawns has increased manifold. According to latest data, the fake lawn industry is growing by 35 percent annually. Apart from domestic users, the other big spenders on fake surfaces are golf courses. Maintaining natural golf greens all year round is a big investment of time and money. Using artificial golf greens can solve the problem. Even schools and colleges spend a substantial amount of money on their playing fields. Using artificial tracks can significantly lower the maintenance costs.

The EPA has estimated that lawnmowers contribute to 5% of the nation’s emissions not to mention the millions of gallons of water used for soaking natural lawns. Artificial turfs help the environment by eliminating lawnmower emissions and reducing water consumption. Looking at the benefits of synthetic grass few states in the US have recently passed resolutions to use artificial grass for all public lawns. In the coming years the popularity of synthetic turfs is expected to increase due to its enormous benefits. The best way to beat patchy browned lawns is to switch to synthetic grass. It is not only cheap but it also helps in conserving the environment.
