Environmental concerns can play an important role in your decision to use artificial grass. Artificial turf is very environmental friendly. With an artificial lawn you no longer have to mow the grass, fertilise and water it, and, equally as important, you will not have to use chemicals for lawn maintenance anymore. The ban on plasticisers and heavy metals in the production of artificial grass is safeguarded by strict environmental standards (DIN 18035-7 for leaching of heavy metals) so you do not have to worry about that either.
Environmental benefits include: Low maintenance: artificial grass does not grow and therefore does not need to be mowed with an electric mower. This results in zero energy costs and zero harmful emissions. Water savings: artificial grass does not need valuable drinking water. Sustainability: artificial grass has a long life span – depending, of course, on the quality chosen. Choosing a durable artificial grass product ultimately means less waste and a reduced need for recycling. You may have thought that if everybody has an artificial lawn, this would have a negative impact on the environment. However, it turns out that this is most certainly not the case!
From an environmental perspective, the potential water savings are probably the most significant benefit of artificial turf. Royal Grass® does not need irrigation to stay green. The only water used for artificial lawn is the water used to clean it, if necessary.
Reduced use of pesticides and fertilisers
Since Royal Grass® does not need regular chemical treatment, it eliminates a major source of groundwater pollution as well as human exposure to chemicals. For residential use, artificial lawns also offer the benefit of reducing the amount of chemicals (and dirt) taken into homes.
Royal Grass®’ chemical-free care makes the grass especially suitable for situations where children are playing on the grass. We all know children often spend more time than adults on grass. They are happily playing closely to the ground and therefore more affected heavily by contact with pesticides. Since there are no chemicals needed to maintain Royal Grass®, it is a safe playground for children.
Safe for people and the environment
Royal Grass® fibres do not contain any plasticizers or heavy metals, making this turf entirely safe for both people and the environment. We guarantee that the fibres comply with the strictest standards. There are no dangers known of having artificial grass in your garden.
