Article written by Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division.

If you are installing a synthetic lawn in your yard, you might the cost of equipment and installation to be around $20 per square yard. This might seem quite expensive for a yard that is 1,000 square feet or more in area. However, when you consider the true cost benefits of switching to artificial grass, you can see how this is actually quite a bargain.

Installing an artificial turf lawn eliminates the need for regular watering. This can mean huge savings in the amount of water a homeowner uses. Some estimates say that a homeowner will save 55 gallons of water annually for each square foot of natural grass that is replaced with synthetic grass. Even for small yards, this can mean a big reduction in water usage and money spent on utilities. In addition, many municipalities offer rebates for residents who switch to artificial turf as a way to encourage water-wise landscaping practices.

Along with the pure cost savings of an artificial turf installation, switching to synthetic grass can also save you valuable time. Consider this: according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans spend an average of 73 hours each year maintaining their natural grass lawns. That’s more than three full days each year spent mowing, trimming, watering, reseeding and applying pesticides and weed killers to lawns. Think about how much of this time you spend doing other home improvement projects, working on hobbies or just relaxing if you had a low-maintenance artificial grass lawn.
