You want to make your business more attractive. But you also don’t want something that’s going to require long-term care. What about artificial grass? Artificial grass can make your business look fantastic from the outside and even brighten the mood from the interior. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits.
You aren’t going to need to invest a lot of money into maintaining your artificial grass. Rather, you’ll be able to keep it looking great all year round without a lot of heavy watering. Today’s artificial grass is nearly indistinguishable from real grass.
Real grass has to be mowed periodically to keep it attractive and maintained. It has to be watered deeply whenever it’s hot outside. When spots or trails occur, grass has to be reseeded and repaired. All these things together can add up.
Because you don’t need to pay for landscaping, watering, fertilizer, or reseeding, artificial grass actually saves you money over time. In fact, artificial grass itself can be less expensive than installing live sod. You’ll avoid having to spend any money for your landscaping while still maintaining a natural, relaxing feel.
Consider the cost of installing a sprinkler system, which would likely be necessary if you wanted to ensure that your grass remained healthy and attractive. The cost of a sprinkler system alone can far surpass the cost of installing artificial grass.
Customers and employees in a natural environment feel healthier and happier. A concrete jungle might be the most efficient use of materials, but it’s also often depressing. By providing some natural-looking landscaping outside, you can improve the overall mood of your business.
Concrete and similar materials will retain heat, while artificial grass can help disperse the heat more evenly. First, artificial grass naturally reflects more heat than something like concrete or asphalt. Artificial grass also has a larger surface area because the grass strands themselves can distribute heat. If you’re in a hot area, artificial grass can make your outdoor spaces feel a little cooler.
Many customers today are looking for a business that’s eco-friendly. What’s more environmentally friendly than artificial grass? Real grass is a waste of water, and it’s difficult to take care of, especially in drought-stricken areas. Artificial grass is an eco-friendly solution that will show your commitment to the environment. Many homeowners today are also switching to artificial grass as a way to keep their property values up without having to sacrifice the environment.
A lot of businesses can benefit from being a little more pet friendly. Artificial grass gives a place for pets to walk that isn’t hot concrete. If you’re a cafe with an outdoor area, for instance, don’t you want pet owners to stay? You can create an entire pet-safe area with artificial grass or just keep patches of artificial grass around your walkways. This will encourage people to visit your location even when they’re out walking their canine companions.
Improve Property Values
If you own your business, consider the fact that artificial grass will improve the curb appeal of your property. By improving the curb appeal, you can also improve your property values. Your business will look well designed and well maintained. It will be more approachable than a flat concrete space. And it won’t experience issues that real grass would (such as brown spots and empty spots).
Artificial grass can also keep the interior of your business cleaner than it otherwise would be. Unlike concrete, artificial grass can ensure that dust and dirt don’t make it inside your door. Further, when you want to clean it, you can simply hose the artificial grass off (or just wait for a rain) rather than having to scrub. If you want to keep people from tracking debris into your business, consider placing artificial grass in front of the doors.
Artificial grass has many benefits over either natural grass or concrete. In fact, there are many more benefits than most people assume, especially when it comes to heat, cleanliness, and property values.
