All too often we find that once we have our own home it brings a lot of hassle in keeping the place well maintained and in good condition. Many of us leave our parents and rent your own pad for a while, maybe with a mate or partner, and if we can save enough the Aussie dream is often to have our own place. But while you’re renting, the maintenance rarely seems to be an issue, especially if there is a grounds keeper or mower service provided as part of the letting.
What many of us find is that once we have our own place, along with a mortgage hanging around our neck, a whole lot more work comes with maintaining the place – and therefore you have to invest time and money in keeping your home up from scratch. This is especially true when it comes to garden and lawns.
Traditional lawns in Perth require extensive maintenance to keep them in prime condition – enough water through your reticulation (but not too much to attract the attention of the Water Corporation inspectors), action on weeds when they crop up, enriching with fertiliser in the autumn and spring and application of wetting agents before heavy rain. And that’s without kids or dogs who may put large patches in your grass or dig big holes in it!
For many people it is a real effort to keep the lawn in the kind of condition in which you can really enjoy it and they find they’ve spent nearly all their time making the lawn look perfect and don’t have time to actually relax and enjoy it themselves. This is one of the main reasons people in Perth choose to install synthetic grass in the first place and why not?
Most of us spend enough time working hard all week in our day jobs to not want to spend most of the weekend and evenings working just as hard over a patch of grass. Installing synthetic grass means you really can sit back and enjoy your weekends. Yes, there are benefits of saving water and money over the long term, but for many what is most precious is saving time.
We only live once so let’s enjoy our spare time, minimise garden maintenance and spend more time with family and friends without having to worry about what our lawn looks like – because with synthetic grass it is bound to look good, even with minimal maintenance. Learn to make an art of relaxing and enjoy your garden as you should with synthetic grass.
