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.
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.
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.
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!
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.

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.

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!
