Things that are synthetic, or “fake”, aren’t always great for the environment. Because of the way they are made, or their lack of decomposition, sometimes they can actually be more harmful to the environment. That is absolutely not the case when it synthetic grass. Synthetic grass actually has several environmental benefits. Here are some of the environmental benefits of fake grass in Miami.
Based on current EPA water usage statistics, the average American family uses 320 gallons of water per day. About 30% of that daily water usage is outdoors. More than half of that outdoor water is used for watering lawns and gardens. By switching to artificial grass, you eliminate almost all of your outdoor water use. The only time you will need to use water on your lawn is to wash off pet waste or a spill of some sort.
Approximately 60 percent of all fertilizer ends up wasted and contributing to chemical runoff. These chemicals, such as synthetic nitrogen, are very dangerous to insects, animals, and even humans. Artificial lawns require no fertilizer since it is already fully grown. This will lead to a reduced risk of water contamination which can lead to major health issues.
While mowing the lawn might be good exercise, it can be harmful to the environment. the gas emissions from your lawn mower contribute to global CO2 levels. There is also the ever-rising costs of gas and fossil fuel. Synthetic lawns not only save money on fuel but also reduce the number of emissions in the environment.
