Artificial Turf, Synthetic Grass

Artificial turf has been proven to drastically reduce home-owners water usage in Perth by around 70%, a huge saving both financially and for the ever decreasing water supplies of Perth and Western Australia.

Over one third of residential water is used for natural lawn irrigation, obviously synthetic grass eliminates the need for lawn reticulation and also the use of harmful pesticides and weedkillers. Artificial grass in Perth is fast becoming almost an essential commodity for a sustainable garden.

Synthetic turf in Perth also eliminates the need to use lawn mowers. A 3.5 horsepower lawn mower releases the same amount of air polluting emissions in one hour as a new car driven for 340 miles.

One full-size synthetic turf sports field saves 500,000 to 1,000,000 gallons of water each year proving that artificial lawns are not only invaluable for residential use but also for commercial applications.
