The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation estimates that a typical gas-powered lawn mower emits as much air pollution annually as a car driven halfway across the country.
Environment Canada estimates that the average home owner consumes 14,000 litres of water annually to care for their lawn.
Environment Canada estimates that the average residential home owner uses 46 pounds of pesticides in the form of fertilizers and weed control annually.
With the price of water increasing annually, this could mean even more savings.
The cost of lawn mowers, gas, aeration, fertilizers, weed control, and sprinkler systems (or basic sprinklers and hoses), together with water bills, can add up to approximately $2,000 per year and countless hours of lost free time during the warm months of the year.
Maintaining a lush green lawn 3 months of the year is hard work and takes a lot of time. However, with Western Canadian weather we are only completely snow covered for 2 months of the year, leaving a minimum of 7 months we are forced to look at a dull, dirty brown yard. With synthetic grass you will have a perfect lawn 12 months of the year.
All dog owners know how hard, if not impossible, it is to maintain a nice yard. With synthetic grass, pet waste will not discolour or kill the grass, so your yard always looks perfect.
