Artificial Grass Improving Lifestyles for Many Families September 25 2014

Artificial grass is rapidly becoming ubiquitous in the Perth area. There are many documented benefits to artificial grass, but Justin Everley, Director of Green Planet Grass, recently pointed out a benefit that is not often cited: enhancement of family life. According to Mr Everley, “The documented benefits of an artificial lawn are well-known, but each of those benefits also has its own benefit: improving family life.”

The Documented Benefits of Synthetic Grass

Synthetic grass have proven to be an effective solution for many homeowners who had problems maintaining a full, green natural grass lawn in the Perth area due to the climate. Here are some of the benefits of an artificial lawn from Green Planet Grass.

Safety

Green Planet Grass has a system called “PlayGrass” that is formulated to be the ultimate “safe surface” for children. It uses a combination of lush fibres, child-friendly infill and shockpads to provide a surface that exceeds Australian Critical Fall Height Standards. In addition, since an artificial grass surface doesn’t degrade from heavy use or extreme weather, the surface is always consistent. There are no slippery puddles or bare spots on a Green Planet Grass lawn.

Pest-Free

Green Planet Grass is manufactured using an antimicrobial agent that makes it resistant to bacteria and fungi. This makes it impossible for microbial pests to gain a “foothold.” Since there is no food for insects, they tend to stay away. There is nothing for vermin to eat, either, making Green Planet Grass unattractive to all pests.

No Chemicals

Green Planet Grass doesn’t require chemicals such as weed killers, pesticides or fertilisers. These are all chemicals that can be accidentally ingested by children and also contaminate the immediate environment.

Minimal Maintenance

The only real maintenance required to keep Green Planet Grass in shape is to keep it free of debris and take care of spills as soon as possible. This saves a lot of time and money.

How Documented Benefits Create Family Benefits

According to Mr Everley, when the documented benefits of artificial grass are viewed through a “big picture” lens, they create a host of benefits for families:

“Since we created our next generation artificial grass, we have known of these benefits. But the real magic happens when families take advantage of them. The inherent safety of Green Planet Grass PlayGrass makes it far less likely that their children will be injured while playing. Even if they do sustain bumps and bruises, they are usually less severe than on a natural grass playground.”

Mr Everley continued, “Children play more on a Green Planet Grass lawn because it is so green and so soft. Usually, a Green Planet Grass lawn turns into the neighbourhood play hub. The kids get more exercise and have a better social life, as do their parents who can spend the time usually spent maintaining a natural lawn in their garden with their loved ones.

Mr Everley concluded, “This is a family’s best-case scenario.”

Green Planet Grass manufactures and installs artificial grass. Their offices are in Perth and their manufacturing plant is in WA. They provide synthetic grass for numerous residential, commercial and sport applications.
