Do you own a house directly facing or close to a lake? Perhaps you’re thinking of purchasing a summer cabin or get-away home so you and your family (and your four-legged friends) can swim in natural bodies of water like lakes or rivers. Sounds like a dream come true, right?
But the dream can quickly turn into a maintenance nightmare. Think about it: If you plant grass in front of a house facing a lake, you’ll have to mow that area more frequently because the water from the lake makes the grass grow faster. Besides that, we’ve never heard of pets daintily wiping off their dirty paws before running into the house after a dip in the lake and a playful romp in wet, muddy grass! Yep, any way you look at it, natural grass next to a lake is a lot of work.
The Best Way to Enjoy Your Lake House
If you have a lakefront house you want to enjoy with your family, friends, and pets, you’d be wise to install artificial grass around your property, especially in the areas that are closest to the water.
Here are a few more reasons to choose artificial grass:
After you’ve installed your artificial grass, you’ll no longer have to deal with the stresses of lawn upkeep. When you use high-quality materials, your artificial lawn can withstand seasonal weather changes, harsh climates, foot traffic, and normal wear and tear without becoming faded or discolored. It’s an investment that increases property value and will look great for many years to come.
Say goodbye to watering lawns and mowing grass and say hello to lower water bills! Only use water when you want to occasionally clean your artificial grass, usually a couple of times a year.
Dogs usually love to play on lawns, but sometimes their overzealousness causes them to eat the grass. When you have an artificial lawn, it won’t matter how much they’re enjoying their playtime because even the hungriest dog won’t eat artificial grass. And if they leave any “gifts,” you can clean them up with a bit of soap and water.
No chemical pesticides or fertilizers means your artificial lawn will be safe for pets and kids of all ages to enjoy.
No mowing needed
