For years, there has been a debate about whether or not homeowners’ associations should allow synthetic grass in North Carolina. Many believe that it gives home an artificial look or diminishes the look of the community as a whole. A great deal of this fear is rooted in the early days of artificial grass, where tough, plastic turf was the norm. Fortunately, synthetic grass has come a long way and is now a beautiful, eco-friendly alternative to natural grass. In fact, we offer a variety of grass to match any style or turf color your neighborhood requires. Smart HOAs throughout North Carolina have already changed their codes to allow artificial grass and they have begun to see the benefits. Here’s what you need to know about synthetic grass in HOA-controlled communities.
Water conservation is at the center of many conversations about environmental impact. An average household can use up to 400 gallons of water a day and a majority of that is used to keep lawns green. Real grass needs heavy amounts of water to maintain the luscious green look HOAs require. It is difficult for the average homeowner to determine when enough water is enough. Many homes overwater for fear of not meeting HOA regulations, which results in wasted water running down sidewalks or into the street. Other states, such as California, have put water-wasting bans into place as a preemptive conservation effort. Installing synthetic grass completely eliminates the need to have a watering schedule in place and helps homeowners avoid expensive water bills.
Quality landscaping is important to Charlotte, NC homeowners and HOA members alike. Real grass can be hard to maintain with an even, green color. During season changes it’s also natural for brown patches to form, which technically goes against many HOA codes. Something as simple as mowing the lawn inadequately can leave an uneven surface behind, which places homeowners at risk for further scrutiny. An unsightly lawn like this is not going to attract new homeowners or impress current neighbors. For pristine landscaping all year round, synthetic grass is the best option. It is easy to install and features a realistic grass look all year round. Overall, your community will look better with luscious green lawns.
No Mowing, No Noise
On a bright Saturday morning, the last thing anyone wants to hear is the loud buzz of a lawn mower. For residents with real grass in their front and backyards, mowing the lawn is a time-consuming weekend ritual that annoys nearly everyone else around. It doesn’t stop at mowing, either. Throughout the day, other loud tools like weed whackers and sprinkler systems make their appearances. Harmful emissions from landscaping tools create very real, breathable air pollution that contributes to higher risk of illnesses such as respiratory diseases, heart disease and even stroke. When HOAs allow synthetic grass at residences, both noise pollution and air pollution clear up quickly. Say goodbye to lawn clippings covering sidewalks! Synthetic grass is a no-mess solution.
