Comparing Real And Synthetic Grass

The debate about the impact of artificial grasses is really getting into the core of my mind. I'm really torn apart! Whether its environmental friendly or not, the main responsibility still lies in the installer and the owner.

Installer - because there are a lot of artificial grass manufacturers in SoCal. Are their material compositions the same? They should explain it further to buyers especially if the ones concerned are kids and animal welfare.

Owner - i think the target buyers of synthetic grass in SoCal are responsible and mature enough to understand its pros and cons. Artificial grasses are very advantageous in design and landscaping and I see that there's nothing wrong with that, disadvantages will always be there, but proper education is the key for the right information.

Grasses are not the only ones being made into artificial, in some ways it also helps in recycling of inorganic substances right?

San Diegans Using Synthetic Grass To Conserve Water

Indeed fake grasses are the best alternative specially nowadays that we are experiencing climate change and water crisis.

However, we should also be aware of its disadvantage in order to create balance. In the end, its really boils down to our lifestyle choices.

Sometimes using synthetic materials can bring benefits because of their longer life expectancy. Properly disposing these materials after use should be done responsively. And as to water consumption concerns, I believe that <a href="http://www.socalgreens.com/">artificial turf in San Diego</a> is really for conservation because according to what I heard, almost 60% of water are saved annually.
