Naturally, one of the first thoughts you ponder when considering artificial turf is “will people be able to tell I have fake grass?” It is a completely understandable concern, especially considering the fact that cheap turf products of the past have given synthetic turf a bad name. This is why we encourage you to request some free samples of our product – so that you can see and feel the turf for yourself and see how much it resembles natural grass. So, to answer your question and ease your mind: no, guests will not be able to tell that you have an artificial lawn just by looking at it. However, there are other factors that will give your secret away.
We aren’t going to tell you that everyone will think that your artificial lawn is real. In fact, your neighbors and guests will probably catch on pretty quickly. Yet, it won’t be because your lawn looks “fake.” On the contrary, it will be the fact that your lawn looks great all of the time that gives it away:
- Your lawn will be completely even. Every blade of grass is the same height, and this level of perfection is not something you can achieve with real grass.
- They might catch on when your lawn is always looking pristine despite the fact that you are no longer seen mowing, weeding, fertilizing, watering or doing any other lawn maintenance.
- Your grass is immune to the effects of the season or drought. While every lawn in your neighborhood turns brown for winter, yours will remain green and lush.
- There will be no wear and tear or mud holes. It doesn’t take long for grass to suffer in areas of high traffic, whether from kids, pets or something else. Natural grass will become thinner and thinner under the stress, and eventually your yard will have bare patches dispersed throughout. Artificial grass is durable enough to withstand heavy foot traffic and continue looking great.
Basically, to answer the question at hand – people will not be able to tell you have fake grass with a first glance, but they will be able to figure it out eventually. Of course, it won’t be a bad thing hearing “your grass looks too perfect to be real.” You may even start a new trend on your street and soon everyone’s yard will look as nice as yours.
