Artificial Grass Can Cost Less Than You Think

Fake turf doesn’t look so fake anymore.  In fact, more and more people are using a fake! lawn as grass for their backyards!

How can that be?  Isn’t artificial grass expensive?

It doesn’t have to be!

Artificial grass offers a ton of benefits, but the biggest one is price.  Whether you have a small yard or a giant park to worry about, artificial grass can fit into your budget.

And, it’s not like real grass is free.  After all, when you consider watering, mowing, and fertilizing, real grass can be awfully expensive!

However, artificial grass is a one-time cost.  Sure, you will have to pay for the materials and installation.  But once your artificial grass is in, the expense ! is done.  You never have to maintain it, so you never have to spring for a professional landscaping company, lawn tools, or even the money it would take to water it!

Plattsmouth School Board Considers Artificial Turf

Guest Posting by Bobby Quill

While many academic institutions across the country have already embraced artificial turf, others are discussing the idea and looking into artificial grass prices. The Journal reports that Plattsmouth Board of Education members heard advice from coaches and community members last month regarding a notion to install artificial turf on the Plattsmouth High School football field.

The group’s monthly workshop last month was attended by mostly members who approved the idea of replacing the field’s natural grass surface with artificial grass. According to the article, the board has spent the last few months collecting data and input from local citizens and researching artificial turf manufacturers.

 “The benefits of something like AstroTurf would be astronomical for our band program,” the PHS band instructor Zac Konrad told the paper. “I wanted to come here to tell you that this isn’t just an athletics issue. I’m really excited about the possibilities if this happens. It would help our marching band a lot to have a field to practice on every day.”

Just like residential artificial grass, the new surface would help the school save money on water and maintenance bills.
