With the new water restrictions and real estate in an upswing, more and more home owners are looking to install artificial grass as an optimal way to increase property value, while saving water! By installing artificial grass, you are investing in three factors that can raise the value of your property:

Instant Curb Appeal

According to experts, curb appeal is 85% of what a potential buyers are going to see when they first view a property. With the installation of a NewGrass artificial grass lawn, you increase the chances of your home selling faster and selling for more.

Many know that the attraction of landscape is not only a selling point, but bragging rights too. For potential buyers, after viewing countless properties, the landscaping of a home could be the ultimate deciding factor when starting to look at the pros and cons between possible homes. If a landscape seems not taken care of it will look like an additional cost and upkeep to a potential buyer. With artificial grass landscaping, the plush lawn will look beautiful with little to no water usage or maintenance. Plus it will be there year-round no matter the weather conditions.

One Time Investment

Landscaping is something a potential buyer sees first. Landscaping is an essential selling point for any property. According to Virginia Tech Horticulturist Alex Niemera, landscaping can add 12.7% to the value of your home. With an artificial grass lawn, you get the plush lawn without the hassle of maintaining the yard. The lawn no longer needs to be mowed and overgrown weeds and plants are no longer an issue because on turf they are non-existent. As a home owner, with the an investment in artificial grass you are ensuring that when the time comes to sell, your property will have a greater chance of selling itself. The appeal of artificial grass with its no water requirements, the elimination of chores such as mowing, sodding, weeding, fertilizing is a plus for any would be buyer. For a family with a busy schedule that doesn’t have the time or interest in maintaining a lawn, artificial grass may be the deciding factor in purchasing a new home.

Low Maintenance

Synthetic grass lawns require very little care compared to a natural lawn. Say bye-bye to:

• Mowing
• Trimming
• Watering
• Fertilizing
• Reseeding

With no need to mow or trim, there is less upkeep associated with the constant use of lawn mowers and trimmers. The amount of money typically spent each year on tools, gas, and oil will be reduced dramatically.
While artificial lawns do require some maintenance, it is minimal when compared to what is needed for a natural grass lawn. Picking up sticks and other types of debris that fall from trees or are carried onto your lawn by the wind is generally the most strenuous part of maintaining this type of lawn.

If you love your outdoor activities, lounging by the pool, and backyard BBQs then the landscape of your home is just as important as the house itself. When you install artificial turf, you can turn your outdoors into your own oasis. In addition to your normal turf lawn, you can design your own putting green, custom design your yard to be anything and everything you have ever dreamed of. With artificial grass, your parties will be more interesting, cleanup will be easier, and your backyard oasis will become a conversation point. And guess who would love sinking that putt as much as you do? The potential buyers that will be interested in your home!

Environmental Advantages

Many are faced with harsh weather climates and the lack of water resources. With hot temps and natural sod lawns needing water and fertilizing and maintenance, many are deciding to install artificial grass lawns. This comes as no surprise as by installing, homeowners are not only eliminating yard maintenance, they are responding to an environmental issue. Most importantly you are removing the number one user of any homes water resources. The lawn!

Durability

With warmer temperatures and plenty of sunshine, natural lawns need constant watering and upkeep.

It’s also durable in the fact that it is specifically designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, so kids, dogs, people at parties and your artificial lawn holds up for years with little to no maintenance!

Installing artificial grass has numerous benefits – from costs to maintenance to its environmental advantages, you name it. Although the reasons for deciding to use artificial grass may vary per household, we can assure you that incorporating NewGrass into your lawn has a return on investment for each and every one of you and quite possibly, peace of mind been the most important.

Saves Water

Artificial grass helps conserve our precious water resources! This is a major concern for those who live in dry, arid regions that are prone to droughts. Installing artificial grass can help cut down the majority of water waste significantly since about sixty percent of the household water is spent on our watering our lawn!

The average U.S. household consumes 101 gallons of water per day per person. For a family of four, that’s nearly 12,290 gallons a month on average. During peak lawn-watering months, that means the average family of four is using between 7,374 and 8,603 gallons a month to water their lawn and shrubs.

Reduces Costs

Because artificial grass does not require watering, we are also reducing costs associated with our monthly water bills. Approximately forty billion dollars are spent maintaining lawns in the United States each year. That’s a lot of cash.

Rebates for Artificial Lawn Installation

In addition to trimming your water bill, you may be eligible for a rebate through your city or water agency for replacing your sod grass with faux grass or installing synthetic lawn from the get-go. More and more water agencies and cities are not only encouraging synthetic grass as a way to conserve water. Many of them, especially in the West and Southwest, are offering rebates for artificial lawn installation. Artificial grass virtually eliminates the need to water your lawn. You may choose to water your synthetic lawn occasionally to clean off debris or accumulated dust. But for the life of the lawn, that’s about it.

The list of cities and water districts that offer rebates is constantly changing. The best thing to do is call your local water utility company and ask about their rebate program, NewGrass does not offer any such rebates.

Low Maintenance

About one hundred and fifty hours are spent maintaining a lawn each year, per household! Artificial grass is low maintenance. It provides all the aesthetic benefits of natural grass with the added advantage that little maintenance or care is required. There’s no need for weekly watering, and does not require weeding, mowing, fertilizing, or reseeeding!

Environmentally-Friendly

Artificial grass is very environmentally friendly because it doesn’t require the application of fertilizers and insecticides. About 4.5 billion pounds of toxic pesticides are used to keep our natural grass lawns looking healthy and green each year. These substances seep through the ground, and pollute the groundwater beneath.

Improves Property Value 

Artificial grass installation will raise your home’s property value because it’s lusciously green surface remains gorgeous all year round and offers low maintenance. A lush green lawn is always a big selling point for a house, so having an artificial grass lawn can improve your home’s property value in the long run.

It Looks Real

The blades of NewGrass products are made entirely of polyethylene and polypropylene, synthetic fibers that makes the artificial grass look and feel like a natural, green lawn. The upper or primary blades of our products are enhanced by a lower and shorter, denser or slightly curled blades that mimic natural grass thatching. We even have a couple of natural-looking color blend options (solid green or duo-green) that makes this artificial grass look even more authentic!

So Many Uses! 

From the backyard to the schoolyard, for an office park or a pet park, NewGrass provides year-round greenery for a wide range of uses. Our synthetic lawns are really perfect for any application and are able to fit any budget.

Holds Well Under Intense Desert Heat

The best thing about installing artificial grass in dry, desert regions is that it holds well under the intense desert heat and high UV exposure. The synthetic grass will not dry up like natural grass due to scorching summer temperatures. When combined with drought resistant plants, artificial grass will serve as an inviting place for the residents to relax, play, and have fun.

Safe for Everyone

Natural grass harbors a lot of dangerous bacteria and other harmful pathogens, especially in damp or wet soil. Pathogens also tend to thrive in mud puddles that form in a natural grass lawn after watering. Artificial grass doesn’t have this problem and is particularly safe for the kids. Children love to run around the lawn and are prone to falling and scraping themselves on the grass, which could lead to infections. This isn’t often the case with the soft, synthetic grass surfaces.

ROI For Everyone

As you can tell, there are plenty of reasons why choosing a NewGrass artificial lawn can benefit you. The return on investment is surely worth it for most, and includes a wide range of advantages each homeowner has, at one point or another, dreamed of!

So you’ve decided that, yes, an artificial lawn is the way to go. All the benefits associated with artificial grass fit your needs perfectly in regards to sustainability, maintenance, and costs. But what about aesthetics? How realistic does artificial grass actually look?

Let me tell you, it’s come a long way since your Grandma’s artificial turf!

Artificial Grass Has Come A Long Way

Rest assured, nowadays artificial grass is as beautiful and natural looking as real grass. It’s changed quite a bit since its first introduction in 1966.

The first type of artificial grass introduced was called AstroTurf, which was first installed in the newly constructed Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Here it gained a significant amount of media attention since it was installed in an attempt to replace the natural grass field that could not be adequately maintained in an indoor stadium, due to lack of sunlight.

As a result, the first artificial grass surface was born, which was basically a green carpet constructed from nylon fibers. From this point on, artificial turf became extremely popular. It was introduced to multiple Major League Baseball stadiums across the country, along with other sports fields to commercial and residential landscaping.

In the late 70’s a new generation of artificial turf was introduced, which utilized polypropylene, a different type of synthetic fabric used in place of the nylon fibers. This type of material was much softer, more comfortable, and was introduced to try to reduce the risk of injury for athletes on artificial grass sports fields.

NewGrass Natural Feeling Lawn

The blades of NewGrass products are made entirely of polyethylene. Their backings are an ultra-soft composite of non-woven eco-friendly EnvrioCel™ that replaces about 90% of the petroleum compounds found in earlier generations of backing. EnvrioCel™is made from a derivative of domestically grown soybeans, it also incorporates post-consumer recycled plastic from soft drink, and water bottles. Not only does it look natural, but is also genuinely green in every sense of the word. It’s safe to say our artificial grass is of the highest quality that looks and feels good.

Our various artificial grass products are designed to meet your natural lawn needs. We offer the highest, most-natural looking type of artificial grass in the industry
