Three Ways Artificial Grass Will Surprise You
If you’re debating between artificial turf and natural grass - dither no longer! The clear winner is artificial grass, especially if you own or manage a property. Not only can using fake grass save you money, it can actually be a revenue source for your property. Talk about a win-win situation!
If you are a property owner, you know how important appearance is for both current and potential future tenants. It is increasingly challenging to provide desirable, grassy amenities for tenants as housing costs continue to rise; especially the cost of water. Not only that, as environmental issues become increasingly important (especially in Florida), artificial turf provides a sustainable solution that helps you control your costs while also helping the environment. We all love natural grass, but for smart property owners, natural just doesn’t cut it. Keep reading to learn more about how artificial grass can benefit your tenants and your property!
Artificial Grass Retains Tenants
Whether you have a commercial or residential property, having a high tenant turnover is bad for business. It is a major cost for you and impacts how your other tenants and potential tenants view your property.
First appearances are crucial -- especially when it comes to property. Businesses want to appear stable and prosperous to consumers, and residents want a home they can be proud to invite family and friends over to. Top quality aesthetics speak to people both emotionally as well as psychologically and creates the “curb appeal” that will attract and retain tenants.
Unlike natural grass, artificial turf is durable and resilient to high amounts of foot traffic or activity. If you’re looking for a way to maintain your property’s pristine curb appeal that requires limited maintenance on your part, then artificial turf is the way to go. This leads to the next point below.
Highlighted above is the importance of curb appeal to attracting and retaining tenants, but how exactly do you create this look? Consistency is key. Having a property that only looks good once a month does not inspire confidence in potential tenants and probably upsets current residents. Natural grass is incredibly time and labor intensive. From high foot traffic to sports activities or even pet use, natural grass requires almost twenty-four-hour supervision to maintain a flawless appearance.
On the other hand, synthetic turf has the look and feel of natural grass without all the tedious tasks and costs that go with it. Imagine having a perfect lawn without having to mow, trim, edge, fertilize or weed it. By eliminating traditional lawn maintenance and equipment and supply costs, you’re able to focus your energy and money on more important matters. Artificial turf lasts for many years without fading, is easy to clean and virtually stain proof. With fake grass, maintaining your curb appeal has never been easier.
Unlike natural grass, artificial turf can increase your revenue now and enhance the value of your property if you decide to sell in the future. Installing artificial turf adds value to your property much like a new roof or other improvements. You can also charge a premium rent for business or residential tenants as the grounds are reliably nicer.
Obviously, not all synthetic grass is created equal. Especially if you are looking for a commercial property, you want to make sure that you install a turf that can take higher levels or activity and footfall. Suppliers who provide better or longer warranties on their artificial grass are most likely supplying you with a premium product.
