Does Artificial Grass Add Value to Your Home?
The garden is a key part of a home. According to a 2014 study, 68.2% of homebuyers claim that landscape design influences their decision to buy or rent a home.
While artificial grass may not be for everyone, it does have many qualities that will be attractive to prospective buyers. Some buyers will prefer natural grass, but others will be willing to pay a premium for a luxurious artificial grass garden. In this article, we look at the reasons why artificial grass can add value to your home.
Artificial grass will improve the overall appearance of your home. And with almost no maintenance required, your artificial garden will remain attractive at all times.
Artificial grass is unchanging in colour, texture and length. The lush green fibres stay vibrant and colourful all year round.
And unlike a regular garden, you don’t need to worry about maintenance. Off on a trip? Injured yourself? Or simply can’t be bothered? You don’t need to tend to your garden to keep it looking good. Your artificial lawn — and your home — will look good on every day of the year.
Having kerb appeal is especially important when selling your home. First impressions are everything, and enhancing the aesthetic of your home will go a long way to helping you sell.
Low maintenance saves time
The issue with natural gardens is that the larger and prettier they are, the more work that is required to maintain them. For a lot of buyers that aren’t into gardening, long days mowing, cutting and planting is an unattractive prospect. With artificial grass, buyers aren’t just paying a premium for the garden, they’re also paying for time. Instead of having to tend to their garden to maintain its appearance, buyers can spend less time on their garden and more time doing the things they love most.
Child and pet friendly
Artificial gardens will be particularly appealing to prospective buyers who have pets or children.
Artificial grass for play areas stays soft all year round, so you won’t need to worry about your children scraping their knees or elbows. Plus, the Easigrass shock pad underlay provides a cushioning to protect children when they fall.
Pets can also play on artificial grass without ruining it. Easigrass EasiZeo underlay is a revolutionary organic turf infill that naturally reduces odour build-up and cools fibres. If your pet ‘has to go’, your artificial grass for pets will naturally eliminate any foul odours. And once they’re done, they can lie on the ground and ‘admire their work’ without getting too hot.
Because artificial grass requires no maintenance, buyers will be conserving water they would otherwise be using to maintain their lawn. Conserving water equates to saving money, and many prospective buyers will be willing to pay a little extra for the home if it means they save more down the line on their water bill.
