Another reason to have an artificial turf lawn

We’ve cited a number of reasons for having artificial turf as a part of your landscape plan.  Besides the water use and elimination of chemicals, add this one to your list:

Lawn mower pollution.

Seriously, gas-powered lawn mowers reportedly account for 5 percent of the air pollution in the United States.  Consider that running your gas mower for one hour is the equivalent of driving your car 100 miles.

Eliminating natural turf from your lawn also eliminates the cost of a mower (or several if you consider the average mower lasts 10 years and most turf solutions are guaranteed for at least 20 years).  Add in the cost of gas over that same period and you have a pretty good green (both monetary and environmental) case for having the fake stuff.
