I’m not too sure if there have been studies done on this matter but from what I can find on the internet it seems inconclusive. After visiting a local synthetic grass Los Angeles dealer I do have a strong opinion on what is likely to happen in the near future. We all know what stigma fake grass lawns have. You may think they give off a cheap or tacky kind of look. I too was in the same boat really against fake grass. It wasn’t until I became a homeowner myself that changed my mind. For the past couple of months I have spent a lot of money and time trying to get my grass looking deep green. Everything I try, it’s like taking one step forward and two steps back. I started watering more and then I started getting crab grass. I started watering less now it not as green. I changed sprinkler heads to get better coverage and now I’m having dead spots. It is very frustrating to not to be able to have nice grass all year round.
I knew I had to do something, my first idea was to hire new gardener. I started to drive around my neighborhood to see how other lawns looked compared to my own. Some were better some worse and most about the same. There was however one house where the grass looking awesome. I actually couldn’t tell if it was fake or real. So later the next day to not look like a big creep. I took my dog out for a walk and walked past the same house. Sure enough after my grass investigation it was fake grass. I started thinking about all the pros and cons. With synthetic grass Encino I would be saving on my water bill, saving on paying a gardener and saving me time. The only con I can think of was that it’s not real but who cares. I kept the real grass in my backyard but my front yard will look great every year without any maintenance.
