Why The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side?

It’s not about the effort

If you often pass through the neighborhood wondering why the grass is always greener on the other side when you spend hours maintaining your garden. Why the neighbor’s grass is fresh in all seasons while your grass gets dull in winters? Why all the efforts to make your house stand out, are going to waste? If you’ve had these thoughts then it’s time you stop blaming yourself and make the right choice. We grew up learning that hard-work is the key and so, even in gardening, we tend to expect that the more we’ll put effort in our garden, the greener it’ll be. However, in today’s era, your effort is not a requirement. With the option of fake lawn Melbourne, i.e. synthetic grass, you can have an all-season fresh green grass in your porch without spending hours on its maintenance. It requires a one-time installation and after that, you can forget worrying about it.

Since you won’t be spending hours on taking care of it, it is fair to spend some time making the right selection in the synthetic grass. Contrary to the common belief, there are different shades and types of fake turf available to suit your needs. All you need to is to be aware of some factors that will help you choose the right material for your home.

The traffic on passage

This is the first and foremost factor that you need to consider before deciding the type of grass you need. You should know where you wish to install the artificial grass and how frequently that area will be used as a passage. If you have pets or kids at your home that will be going in that area, this also needs to be considered. This is because the usage of the area determines the durability required in the fake turf you need. if you’re getting the artificial grass for a place that is not easy to access, you don’t need a highly durable patch of artificial grass.

Pile Height

The pile height is more of a decision that depends on your desire. the pile height is the height of each blade of grass. The longer the blades, the more green and sharp the grass will appear, but also the longer blades tend to bend or fall due to heavy weight. Therefore, you need to make a tradeoff between the length of the blade and the prominence of the grass. If you intend to keep furniture on the grass, you should go for turf with lesser pile height as it offers better sustainability.

Shade of grass

People are often under the impression that there is only one color in the artificial grass; green. This statement is not completely true. There are different shades available that are intended to go with the theme of your house.  The pure green shade is usually avoided for its fake and unnatural appearance. if you want the turf that adds to the look of your garden without making it seem unnatural, go for lighter shade of green with tiny brown patches in between. This conveys a natural look.
