The short answer is YES. Unkept Gardens are a big turn off to property buyers. You may not have given artificial grass much thought before now, but it seems that its popularity is soaring as home owners are increasingly thinking of adding value to their properties whilst saving water and minimising maintenance cost. Artificial grass will improve your property’s curb appeal. Let me illustrate by way of an example. Should you ever put your house on the market, artificial grass will not only add direct value to your house, but will play an aesthetic role in the selling of your home to potential home buyers. When two houses are virtually the same in all other aspects, in similar priced areas, close proximity to schools, transport nodes and shopping centres, the one with more curb appeal will sell faster.

The simple answer is YES. Artificial grass helps you save water outside because you never need to water the lawn! Your artificial grass in your garden will look as green as the day your artificial grass installation took place. The water that you save by installing artificial grass can be used to ensure that your plants and veggies grow healthy, or you can save the water altogether saving lots of money on your water bills! How much water and money can you save with Artificial Grass? Literally thousands of kilo litres per year!! According to several studies on this matter, a well-maintained lawn averaging around 50m2 will use around 300 kilo litres of water a year to keep it healthy, lush and green, and also depending on where you live, it might be as much as 700 kilo litres due to ground surface area. Let us illustrate an example: The average cost of the current level B tariffs for the city of Cape Town to residential users is around R23,54 per k/Litre for users of under 20 000 k/Litres. The saving of approximately R7000 per annum, which equates to approximately R580 per month on your water bill. Should you have artificial grass installed in your garden you’ll find that you are saving not only on your water bill but also electricity and even maintenance bills. What’s more, water prices will increase in the future as well as maintenance and electricity cost and the price of artificial grass itself may even increase in the future and installing artificial grass today could be a great investment for your home as it will last between 10-20 years.
Prepare the garden for your artificial grass: (1.) Remove existing turf Start by removing the existing turf from your garden. For small areas you can do this with a spade, but if you have a large area to clear hiring a turf cutter can make this job a lot easier and faster. Ideally remove a depth of about 40mm. (2.) Add a sub base layer Spread out a sub-base layer to a depth of 35mm as a base to the artificial turf. (3.) Level the surface Level and compact the sub-base evenly across the area to ensure a firm base below the grass. (4.) Add a membrane layer Roll out a weed membrane over the top of the sand and make sure it overlaps joints by 300mm. How to lay artificial grass (5.) Rolling out the artificial grass Artificial grass doesn’t stand perfectly straight, it has a slight angle to it, and you should lay the grass with the pile leaning towards the house. By doing this you ensure that the grass has a full, natural look when you’re viewing it from the house. Roll out your artificial grass to cover the area, but make sure that the ends of the grass rolls are staggered so they don't end in a line. Trim the edges of the artificial grass rolls with a craft knife. (6.) Joining the artificial grass It is important to make sure the grass rolls are laid in the same direction and that the blades of grass all point the same way. Lay the rolls directly next to each other with no blades caught in-between. How to fix down artificial grass (7.) Fix rolls together Once you have rolled out all of the artificial grass, the different rolls need to be glued together. Use a jointing tape (8.) Create a seamless effect Once two rolls are joined, ruffle up the grass fibers at the joints to disguise the seal. (9.) Make your lawn look neat Finish off by brushing the grass pile with a stiff brush to make it look fuller and more natural.
