Artificial Grass VS Real Grass
All things considered – from maintenance to cost – property owners still have a difficult time deciding between artificial grass and real grass. With artificial grass installation, the problem for many is to understand the differences, the benefits, and the long-term advantages.
Property owners considering artificial grass in Toronto are particularly attracted by the minimal amount of maintenance required and the excellent aesthetic look. In fact, with today’s advanced products, it’s even hard to tell the difference between artificial grass and real grass.
While Canadians love the look of a luscious green lawn, it all comes at great cost, especially to the environment. For example, the water used in maintaining a beautiful lawn is just incredible. More than that, fertilizers and pesticides contribute hugely to levels of chemical pollution.
Artificial Grass and Real Grass
True enough, a lush green lawn really has exceptional aesthetic appeal. But after many years, the burden and cost of maintenance can be taxing. On the flip side, artificial grass installation is a new way of doing outdoor landscaping. While the upfront cost is pricey, the long lifespan turns out to be less costly than real grass and an excellent return on investment.
Cost of Product/Installation
The cost of installing artificial grass will vary from property to property. For a start, it’s about the quality of the product being installed. As well, it’s about the standard of workmanship provided by the installer team. Property owners shopping around for artificial grass in Toronto can count on Fieldmasters for an all-inclusive property assessment and estimate.
Overall Maintenance Costs
Unlike real grass, artificial grass requires virtually no cost commitment. There are no costs for watering, gardening, fertilizing, or “seasonal” cleanups. With natural grass, there are a number of ongoing costs associated with maintenance. These costs may not be discernable in the short term but certainly, they mount up season after season and year after year.
Artificial Grass Materials
When installing artificial grass, a range of installation materials is required. Of course, there’s the actual turf itself – but there are also additional landscaping materials needed. Depending on the location of the installation, there may be underlay required along with the drainage component. Finally, there are various “finishing” requirements in order to provide a clean look.
Labour Costs (And Fees)
Needless to say, the cost of labour for artificial grass installation depends entirely on the scope of the project. For professionals, doing it right is the priority, without taking any shortcuts during the installation. When it comes to fancy designs and special features, the cost of labour will go up accordingly. At Fieldmasters, customers are apprised of costs upfront.
