Everyone wants to walk outside to a perfectly manicured lawn, and choosing synthetic grasses can help you achieve such a reality without all the typical hard work you would expect with traditional grass landscaping. By investing in synthetic grass, most owners see a return on their investment within three years and then continue to enjoy annual savings for the lifespan of their synthetic turf.
Because synthetic grasses often last 15-20 years, the potential exists to recoup your initial investment in synthetic grass more than six times over. Initially, you’ll pay more for a maintenance-free synthetic grass lawn, but in the long haul, you’ll spend a lot less money and time working in your yard, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the area with your family. The pricing of synthetic grasses vary depending on the texture you choose and the size of the area to be covered.
How to Calculate Savings of Synthetic Grass Installations
Sit down and calculate the following for your current lawn:
- Annual Outdoor Watering Costs – Typically about 80% of monthly bill
- Landscaping and Maintenance – mowing, weeding, edging, replacing dead patches
- Bi-annual Seeding and Chemical Use Costs
Once you have these prices, add them up and see what you get. Many homeowners spend up to $600 per month just to care for their yard. Experts estimate that annual expenses for traditional lawn maintenance average $7,000, while synthetic grass is virtually maintenance free and requires no weeding, chemicals, or mowing – ever!
Next, contact Southwest Greens for a Free Consultation and estimate concerning the total investment required to install the synthetic grass. Calculate the number of years it will take you to accumulate annual maintenance costs to reach your initial investment amount, which for most homeowners is approximately 34 months. Annual savings past that means more money in your pocket.
Synthetic grasses are an eco-friendly alternative to a traditional lawn, yet they are every bit as realistic looking as sod and offer lasting beauty that will make your yard the envy of the neighborhood. Count on the industry leader nationwide in synthetic grass – Southwest Greens.
