How much sun does it get on a typical day? For ideally looking lawns, green is in. With artificial grass, you keep greener lawns longer. The grass is low-maintenance and won’t fade or flatten. It does not need much watering, helping you conserve water.

So it is that synthetic turf sports surfaces are becoming ever more popular because their adaptable existence means more sport is possible no matter the weather.
Indeed it's a little disheartening when people cannot play because the surface field is not well maintained. I remember turning up at 8am one Saturday morning with my son to play soccer in Willoughby, on Sydney's lower north shore, only to find a single, yet massive hole in the ground at the exact spot where a goalie would stand. It was deep, and half full of water. It was a sunny day and the kids were raring to play. But the game had to be called off! Getting up at 6am to be there, the parents were very unhappy indeed! With the size of the field, be it a soccer or football, dependable green grass is needed for traction and safety. On that occasion, as with many others, a synthetic turf sports surface would have been a welcome solution.

In both personal and professional aspects, we always want to look good and be presentable.. Same goes for our surroundings.

Australian weather is a shifting combination of moderate levels of cool and hot. It moves its seasons changing from winter to summer. The ocean has a lot to do with this climate, softly changing temperatures as local weather transitions from January to July.

Synthetic grass makes your spaces look truly lush and restful.

Synthetic grass is an attractive addition to any surface that proves problematic for growing real grass. Large areas where little feet play can be perfect for synthetic grass installation. There will be fewer insects and pests as this is not their natural habitat. There is also less worry if your child likes to play in the rain as there will be no muddy feet to track your beautifully tiled floor.
For bigger terrains like playgrounds and football fields, synthetic grass will hardly have dips or bumps that might cause slips and falls. It drains and dries faster than regular grass. On hot sunny days it can be hotter than normal but why would children play in such hot weather, best to have it cool down a bit.
