Grass. With the right type of turf, you can just lie on your back on a really wonderful day, and relax in your own backyard. Alternately, you can make a little picnic and do an effortless Sunday with the family. Isn’t it great to have a lovely little green space outside your home?

Not every time. Any property owner will come to realise that with a great looking lawn comes great responsibilities. The mowing. The watering. The fertilising. Maintaining grass can be really exhausting, especially when you have a full-time career and a family. So instead of dividing your time and having a stressful go at it, why not consider the best synthetic grass Perth has to offer instead?

Synthetic grass gives you the kind of lifestyle you have been accustomed to with organic grass, but without the hassles of maintaining it. Aside from saving you time and energy with upkeep, synthetic grass could also save you a lot of money. But how do you choose the right one?

Know the different varieties of artificial grass.

Much like real grass, artificial turf comes in different varieties. Each one will, naturally, bear a different look. Some synthetic turf varieties will be denser than others, some will have a darker shade than most, and then there are varieties that look and feel like the real thing.

Be aware of the different varieties. Know which ones will look best on your property. And find out which synthetic turf might be more suitable for kids and pets, or even putting time, if you love to golf.

Ask all the necessary questions before making your purchase.

The right synthetic turf supplier will be able to tell you which varieties are more suitable for your particular property, and lifestyle. There are artificial turf varieties well suited for playgrounds, for sports arenas, for commercial centres, and for residential properties.

Have a list of questions prepared when calling your supplier. Ask about water drainage, about mold and mildew, heat retention, in-fill, backing, and other relevant questions.

Be aware of the costs involved and try to come up with a budget.

You should also know the cost of installation. Is the cost of labour included in the price? Does it come with warranty? Are there additional fees to be charged when the synthetic grass has to be installed in a particular area of your lawn?

Be very clear about what you need to pay for and figure out if the cost will work with the budget you have set. This will not only save you money but also prevent any misunderstandings about the initial estimate of the installation.
