Advantages of artificial grass
The purchase and installation of artificial turf is admittedly a larger investment than laying natural grass. However, natural grass is more expensive to maintain than artificial grass. In fact, it takes a lot of water, fertilization, time and attention to make and keep real grass beautiful. Compared to paved surfaces such as tile or wood, artificial turf is not more expensive. The advantage of artificial grass in this equation, is that water permeability is better than with paving; something that is certainly an important argument in favor of artificial grass in the Netherlands.
Disadvantages of artificial turf
There are also some drawbacks: artificial turf gets hotter than natural grass in the summer and does not color with the seasons. With prolonged use, artificial turf is subject to normal wear and tear. This depends on the intensity with which the artificial turf is used. There are measures that can be taken that prevent flattening, such as laying stepping stones in paths that are frequently walked on. The shape of the artificial grass fibers is also a determining factor. Artificial grass with a so-called “V-shape” is much less likely to flatten than artificial grass without that shape.
Purchasing artificial turf
It is important to get good advice when you decide to switch to artificial turf. When purchasing artificial turf, definitely consider having a professional do the installation. Improper installation, especially of larger areas, can lead to unsatisfactory results.
