What is the size of synthetic turf’s carbon footprint?

Owning a lawn is a big responsibility, especially if you think that you are helping the earth by the way you are choosing to take care of the grass and the ground. But most of the time, even if you are trying your best to be environmentally friendly, there are still cons to what you are choosing to do with your lawn. Whether you have a natural grass lawn or a lawn filled with synthetic turf, they both have their ups and their downs. But if you know what you are doing wrong then you can correct it and make it up the earth. So let’s talk about how we can change to be more environmentally friendly.

Now, before you jump to conclusions and think that synthetic grass is unsafe you have to keep in mind that most natural grasses are not natural either. Most grass that you see in neighborhoods were planted there. There is a very specific habitats that grass grows in and most suburban neighborhoods are not the type of environment that you would find natural grass in.

So yes, while it grows and is natural grass, it is not get there naturally, meaning it is in the same boat as synthetic turf. Now let us talk about how we can do better taking care of our lawns and our planet.

For your real grass, try to cut back on the amount of water you use. Yes, your lawn does like to be fed with water and soil, but it doesn’t need it. The earth naturally provides where it needs to. And even though they can be a hassle to deal with, unless there is a serious reason to spray for weeds you should cut back on the treatments you do for that.

If you install synthetic grass make sure that you follow all of the instructions. It is not natural grass so you do not need to water it as often and you don’t need to spray for bugs, but since it isn’t real grass it can be dangerous if disposed of improperly. Luckily most synthetic turfs are recyclable.

If we all work together, we can make this planet a better and healthier place for the younger generations. But we can’t do it alone and we all have to pitch in. Even if it seems small, it’s making a big difference somewhere else in the world.
