As an alternative to grass, how bad it is to the environment?

1 Answer

We always want to compare the artificial grass with real grass lawn when discussing about environmental benefits. Real grass lawn requires a lot of water, on average, 60% of a household water bills goes to thirsty lawns so it is a waste of resources. More importantly, people might have a terribly wrong impressions of real grass lawns are natural therefore it is good for environment, that might be particularly true, why? Maintenance of real grass lawns can have very negative impact on our environment: the pollutions caused by lawn mowers are worse than vehicles’ emissions: 

The EPA estimates that hour-for-hour, gasoline powered lawn mowers produce 11 times as much pollution as a new car. According to the EPA, each gas-powered lawn mower produces as much air pollution as 43 new automobiles driven 12,000 per year – lawn care produces 13 billion pounds of toxic pollutants per year.

The chemicals and pesticides used to maintain real grass can really contaminate soil and underground water resources. For articulations grass, you have absolutely none of above, so it is much better for our environment.

My parents used to water our lawn thrice a week. When they switched to artificial grass, their water bill was reduced.

Also, a real lawn requires the use of chemicals such as pesticides, etc. With artificial grass, there's no need for that
