Synthetic grass popularity growing

There’s little denying that synthetic grass popularity is growing.

The rise of synthetic grass use across Australia is being seen all over the place – from inner-city sports fields and backyards in Brisbane to pool surrounds on rural properties on the outskirts of Byron Bay.


In the suburbs, time-poor households and the way people are choosing to live and spend their free time have led to synthetic grass fast becoming the perfect choice for an aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-maintain lawn.


Fake grass looks like the real thing but without the hassle that comes with natural turf: no matter the weather conditions, amount of shade, or the number of energetic children and pets running circles around the yard, synthetic grass will always look its best.


In the cities, as more people embrace higher density living, more people will use local facilities such as community sports and playing fields.


Natural grass fields can’t withstand the constant use; they require more maintenance and more time to repair and regrow. Whereas, synthetic grass fields deliver a consistent playing surface for everyone.


Sydney is a testament to this. Over the last four years, Sydney has seen a surge in synthetic grass sports fields, now with one in almost every Sydney council and more in the pipeline.


In the outer suburbs and rural areas, especially along the East Coast of Australia, households are seeing the benefits of swapping the lawnmower for synthetic grass to free up their weekends and focus on other aspects of their home or property.

What’s the reason for synthetic grass popularity?


High-quality synthetic grass products look and feel like natural turf minus the time and use of chemicals and pesticides needed to maintain a great looking yard.


Plus, fake grass is always green, tough and durable, versatile, perfect for shady areas, safe and suitable for a variety of landscapes and weather conditions.


And synthetic grass even offers busy people in the outer suburbs the option to have an acreage as well as a low maintenance lifestyle, at least when it comes to looking after the backyard.
