If you are a homeowner, lawn maintenance is inevitable. There is no escaping the harsh reality that in order to keep your yard at home looking beautiful and green you will have to pay for it. Whether it be in your own blood, sweat, tears and lawn equipment, or handing the responsibility to another and paying them. Not to mention the insanely high water bill that comes from attempting to keep your grass alive and well. Over the years of owning a home these cost add up, far exceeding the cost of an synthetic lawn.

Yearly Lawn Maintenance 26 times: $1200

Weed kill: four times per season = $200

Aeration: once per season = $100

Fertilizing: four times per season = $200

Water bill: $125 x 12 months = $1500

TOTAL: 3,200/year


These numbers are estimates on what the average homeowner pays yearly to maintain their yard. With artificial grass there is no yearly maintenance cost. You pay for the original installation and then you can relax at home and watch as you save money from no longer needing lawn maintenance.
