If you’re not familiar with synthetic grass, you may just assume it is primarily used for sports purposes. Indeed, it will be a great choice if you’re an avid golfer and want to add a backyard putting green to your home. But once you learn more about its advantages, you’ll know it should be put to more use than that. Read on to find out why synthetic grass is great for your entire yard, not just for a backyard putting green.
1. Low Maintenance
Synthetic grass is great to use for your whole yard because it requires so much less maintenance. You won’t have to water, weed, mow, feed, fertilize, or seed like you constantly have to do with regular grass. You’ll love to use synthetic grass for your whole lawn d once you realize it will save you so much hassle. With your yard always looking excellent, you can devote all that energy to other projects around your house instead, or just enjoy the free time.
In addition to saving you a lot of time and energy, it can also be great for the environment. You’ll be saving a lot of water, of course. The only time you really need to use water is for an occasional rinse. Because you don’t have to mow it, you’ll also reduce your carbon footprint.

The low-maintenance nature of synthetic grass makes it a great choice for those areas of your yard that you cannot easily reach. In certain landscape layouts, there can be different patches that are difficult to mow or water. For instance, if you want to have some grass between pavers. You shouldn’t have to worry about straining yourself just to keep the grass looking nice.
2. Always Looks Great
The look of synthetic grass can’t be beat. You know how gorgeous a putting green looks, with its incredible color, right? And how there are no bad spots or overgrowth? Well, with synthetic grass, you can bring that beauty to your very own yard. That gorgeous look will add great curb appeal to your home too.
Unlike natural grass, synthetic grass will look great year-round. You won’t have to worry about dead, overly dry, patchy, or faded grass that can occur due to different weather conditions.
Are there certain patches or sections of your yard that are more prone to drought? With synthetic grass, that’s no longer an issue. Your whole yard will look even and equally lush.
Worried about it looking too fake? You really don’t need to be. This lawn material has made leaps and bounds since it was first used just for fields and putting greens. The updated synthetic grass that is available can look natural enough to fool the untrained eye. There are also variations when it comes to factors such as shades, colors, blade lengths, design, texture, and more.
3. Long Lasting
Another reason this material is a great choice for your entire yard, and not just as a backyard putting green, is that synthetic grass has a much better life expectancy. Even if it costs a bit more up front, it will definitely pay off over time. And not just because of the lower costs due to it being very low maintenance.
Even years down the line, it will continue to look as good as it did the day it was installed. In fact, an artificial grass yard can last about 25 years. That would be a very long-lasting backyard putting green, to be sure. But again, why limit yourself just to using it for that?
Synthetic grass will make your whole yard healthier and safer for your entire family. If you have children, it’s a great choice to use for their play area. To start, you will no longer need to use the potentially harsh chemicals of fertilizer or pesticides. That’s an added bonus of synthetic grass’s very low-maintenance nature.
You don’t have to worry about slipping when you use synthetic grass in your yard. That’s one of the many reasons it works so well as a material for putting greens. When you have kids, you want to make sure to avoid as many slips and falls as possible. Let them go outside and play to their heart’s content without worrying about them getting hurt.
If you’re unfamiliar with synthetic grass, you may be wondering why it’s so much better at preventing slips. That’s because this material has better drainage than natural grass. And unlike a traditional lawn, you won’t have to worry about mud when you install synthetic grass.
In addition to being the perfect outdoor play area for kids, synthetic grass is great for households with furry friends. It truly has a number of benefits you’ll really appreciate if you have any pets.
Natural grass can be damaged over time by basic pet activity. Does your pet love to dig in your backyard? Do they often rip up your grass? Do they run the same path around the yard day in and day out? A synthetic lawn is much more capable of withstanding that damage. That’s one of the reasons this material has such a long life expectancy.
Believe it or not, the color of your grass can even be affected by your dog doing their business. Yes, really. Grass can either die or lose its color due to a pet’s urine. With synthetic grass, however, you don’t have to worry about that. Just rinse off the grass after they go, and your yard will continue looking good as new.
In addition to avoiding pets making a mess of your yard, you can also avoid some indoor messiness. You will no longer have to worry about your pet entering your house with muddy paws.
