It’s almost maintenance free
The best pro about it is that it almost maintenance free! Not at all like real grass which although is lovely, natural and cool to walk on, requires a lot of watering, feeding, mowing and care on a monthly basis. The most you will need to do with your fake turf is sweep it free of leaves and sand and wash off any dog urine if it becomes a bit smelly. You would of course also need to pick up the dog poos and wash these areas if they are sticky, especially if you have young kids.
It’s quite hot in full sun
Like paving and other synthetic/man-made plastic materials, fake grass heats up in the sun. It is UV protected and comes with a product and installation guarantee/warrantee for up to 10 years, so you don’t need to worry about it fading and breaking, but be aware that it can become very hot to touch and underfoot. Unshaded areas of fake grass can be too hot for kids to play on so definitely consider adding in shade by way of trees or umbrellas and shade sails over areas of new fake turf. Choose a longer pile closer to 50cm in height to make for cooler temperatures underfoot.
