Don’t get taken in by those sellers trying to sell you awful, false, plastic lawns by telling you that they use no water and need no mowing, fertiliser or pesticides.
Fake lawns look creepy. They will make your home ashamed of them! Remember that non-living turf feeds the urban heat-island effect, uses materials that are made from fossil fuels. They often contain toxic elements, keep out fresh, healthy greenery and generally add to the already unhappy Planet!
Synthetic turf does need some water to keep it clean and contributes to storm water pollution. Plastic lawns are a very bad idea, says the Green-your-home all-in-one for dummies! But this fact, we ourselves know is very bad shopping!
