Why Installing Artificial Grass Adelaide Is an Environmentally Friendly Decision

The decision to install artificial grass Adelaide in the outdoor space of your home or business is one that is certain to add beauty and value. It is also one that can significantly lower your environmental footprint. While they may not be your primary reason for replacing your natural grass with synthetic turf, the environmental benefits that go along with such a decision are ones you should feel good about. How exactly do artificial grass products allow you to be more environmentally responsible? Let’s take a look.

At first glance, you might not think that natural grass could have an adverse environmental effect. After all natural grass is part of the environment itself, so what gives? As you may have already figured out, it’s not the grass itself but rather the maintenance of it that poses the problem. Choosing a high-grade synthetic turf product will not only give you a perfect looking lawn year-round, but it will also provide these benefits:

  • No watering
  • No mowing
  • No fertilizing
  • Lead-free

Those who live in Adelaide and other parts of South Australia places are familiar with the idea of water restrictions. These may be either voluntary or mandatory, and either way, they point to the importance of all of us saving water. Synthetic grass allows you to do just that because unlike your old natural grass it never requires watering. Just think of the water you’ll be able to conserve. Think also about the lower water bills you’ll receive, allowing you to save money while you’re environmentally responsible.

Not only is lawn mowing a time consuming, less than enjoyable endeavor, it is also harmful to the atmosphere. Every time you mow your yard using a gas mower gas emission is released into the atmosphere. We’re talking about copious amounts of carbon monoxide, organic compounds and nitrogen oxides that contribute mightily to smog. Adding synthetic grass means you’ll never have to mow again, and never spewing emissions into the atmosphere in the name of a perfectly manicured lawn.

Staying on the subject of lawn care, a great number of fertilizers and pesticides are used for lawn maintenance. The use of these items, which also have an adverse environmental effect, can be eliminated through the installation of a grass synthetic lawn.

If you could have a perfect looking yard year-round while respecting and helping the environment, would you? Of course you would, and now you can by choosing artificial grass Adelaide as an alternative to the real thing.

 

Advantages of Using Carports for Seasonal and Long-Term Storage

When it comes to sheltering your car, boat, or RV, you’re likely to be in a dilemma: Do I build a garage or go with a carport? To some, building a garage might appear to be more of a practical option, but the advantages of carports outweigh those of brick-and-mortar structures. Down to putting the structure together, installation, and cost, carports clearly have the upper hand.

For building a brick-and-mortar structure, the first steps, even before construction begins, include drawing up building plans, purchasing a permit, and obtaining materials. All three of these processes tend to be costly – and this doesn’t include the price of a construction team putting the garage together. Carports, on the other hand, eliminate nearly all of these steps and costs. A building kit comes with all parts needed to assemble the shelter and directions for putting it together. In most cases, a permit is not required to install a carport, although this varies with area.

On a similar note, a full building kit cuts down on the overall cost of putting together a shelter for your vehicles. While, in general, a carport kit costs less than ordering individual materials for a brick-and-mortar garage, labor is practically cut out. Most carport kits are straightforward enough to be assembled without professionals. Because some carports are designed for short-term or seasonal use, you may find yourself setting one up and anchoring it and, months later, taking it down and putting the metal and polyethylene structure in storage.

Once a brick-and-mortar garage is complete, it’s in one location – and stays there. Carports, however, have the advantage of being placed nearly anywhere, as long as the location is within building code or ordinance regulations. Additionally, while carports need to be anchored to be fully effective, they can be taken down and assembled in another location.

Carports, as well, are not uniform and, instead, provide a variety of options for different storage needs. If, for instance, your sheltering needs require accessing a vehicle every day, valance carports, with a polyethylene or steel top and open sides, allow you to pull a car in or drive it out without rolling up or moving aside flaps. Weather changes may require more coverage, and the carport can be modified with side walls and end panels to provide this. If on the other hand, the carport is used strictly for long-term storage, most models have an enclosed design, providing full coverage through polyethylene walls and sides.
