Plastic Grass vs. Natural Grass

Planning a landscaping project? Considering replacing your lawn? There are some compelling arguments on each side of the fence for and against both plastic and natural grass. While there’s no “right answer”, here’s what you need to know about each to help you make the decision that’s best for you.

Plastic Grass

The good: Artificial grass requires little maintenance. It will eliminate the need to regularly water your lawn, deal with mowing and trimming, and requires no fertilization. Some artificial grass looks almost identical to natural grass.

The bad: Artificial grass can be made partially out of recycled materials, but it is not biodegradable. It also cannot absorb pet waste. Although it can be sprayed off and will drain liquids through to the ground, it is an inconvenience for pet owners. Artificial grass also gets very hot in direct sunlight and can make being outside on hot days uncomfortable.

Natural Grass

The good: Grass is beautiful. It’s soft, it stays pretty cool in the summer, it’s inviting, and it produces oxygen all while perfectly finishing off your landscaped look.

The bad: Natural grass must be mowed, watered, and fertilized. In a dry climate, keeping up grass can be a difficult and expensive task. Additionally, the tools and chemicals used to maintain lawns can be damaging to the environment.
