None of us like to admit that we are getting older and aren’t quite as capable of taking care of some of the chores around the house with the ease that we used to. Gardening chores in particular can become a burden and the bending, stretching and effort required to keep our gardens looking presentable can become too much.

Artificial grass lawns, either in the front yard or in the back yard, may not only be a desirable option but could become a necessity if the desire is to maintain a lush, well kept yard. If mowing the lawn, trimming the edges and removing the weeds begins to be too difficult for your aging body, artificial grass is a realistic option.

Synthetic grass has an extra advantage for the elderly because the surface will not become potholed or uneven like a natural grass lawn can. The unevenness of a lawn can be particularly dangerous for aging and unsteady legs. It doesn’t take much of a change in terrain height to catch an elderly person unawares and the possibility of a broken bone, such as a hip, is all too real.

Rather than allow the yard to become overgrown because you simply can’t maintain it any more, installing synthetic grass could be the answer you are looking for. Cost may be an issue, but the longer term savings negate that significantly. Putting in fake grass may run contrary to a lifetime of nurturing living plant life and sustaining the environment, but the truth is that artificial grass saves water, requires no fertilizer and pesticides aren’t needed.
