Artificial Grass installation in Perth is becoming very common and popular. And it’s no surprise given the challenge of maintaining a lawn in the hot Perth climate. There are many benefits of having artificial turf installed instead of a traditional grass lawn, the main fake lawn benefit is one of simply looking excellent year round without a drop of water or effort needed. Below I go over 2 of the very best benefits of switching to artificial grass.
Take a look around in any Perth suburb’s traditional grass lawns.
You’ll find that there are very few that look great.
And for those that do, do you know how much work it takes to keep it in that top condition?
Here’s likely the very best benefit of installing artificial grass.. how much easier it is.
With almost no maintenance when compared with real grass, you will have a usable and visually appealing lawn even through Perth’s longest, driest summers.
…and all the beauty of real grass lawns retained!
Make your back garden a place the family wants to spend time in, all the time.. even just to lie on the grass and watch the clouds and the night stars.
A professional artificial grass install will leave your Perth lawn soft and luscious, as well as naturally beautiful.
And you’ll be left extremely happy with our premium turf quality, installation efforts and execution, and with our professionalism and expertise we pride ourselves on.
Regular watering and mowing simply aren’t enough.
You need to fertilize, add soil wetting agents, and weed killers again and again throughout the growing season. Then you need to consider dressing, coring and thatching regularly otherwise that lawn will soon take a turn for the worse because turf struggles to thrive in our climate.
With a synthetic or artificial grass lawn you can simply relax, no mowing company to pay, no reticulation to install and then maintain, just a great looking lawn. We install artificial lawns all over Perth, from South Perth to Bunbury, and as far North as Ellenbrook and Hillary’s.
Artificial lawn fulfills a utilitarian purpose (it reduces effort and time spent maintaining your lawn).
It also fulfills a hedonic purpose (it’s nice to look out onto or see as you pull into your driveway).
If most of the following apply its probably a worthwhile investment:
Total = 1200 per year
Total over 5 years = 6000
On top of this, artificial lawn can also increase the value of the property.
Everyone’s situation is different so some costs and benefits below may or may not apply to you:
But what if I maintain my own lawn I hear you ask? If you do, don’t you consider your own time worth around $40 for the hour or so spent mowing, whipper snipping and tidying up your lawn?
An artificial lawn always looks healthy. For a like for like comparison, we make an allowance for keeping your real lawn healthy even if you don’t currently fertilise.
The water corp says almost 50% of average water use charges is for garden water use. If you have a bore disregard this cost.
Depending on the suburb and housing market it could be anywhere from adding no value to adding the full cost of the lawn. Kerb appeal could also help the house sell quicker, potentially reducing holding costs or the need to consider low offers.
What value can you put on having a nice lawn to look at, entertain next to or watch your children/pets playing on?
Tenants prefer low maintenance gardens, they don’t want to get in trouble at rent inspection time because the lawns dying or full of weeds.
A good tenant may pay $10-$20 a week more over a comparable property if they like the gardens.
That adds up to potentially $2500-$5000 over a 5 year period.
How often do tenants change over a 5 year period?
Let’s say 2 to 3 times.
If the property lies vacant for just one week less because of the appeal of the gardens, that’s one extra week’s rent earnt. $400?
