Do you have some spare space in your garden and have you ever thought about creating a little green space? Can you determine which type of grass is best for you?

Lawn grass is a very common element in gardens, terraces, swimming pools, parks and sports facilities. It plays a decorative and functional role, as it provides comfort and a soft surface for relaxing or running.  In this article we will talk about how to choose natural or artificial grass, all the advantages and disadvantages.

Choosing a lawn

Natural grass is the most traditional choice in both private and public gardens. It is a natural type of vegetation that combines with other plants and trees in the garden and as such helps purify the air. Natural grass always feels fresh, and while artificial grass can do a good job of imitating its surface, lying on natural grass feels like you're on a lawn.


  • The initial investment is much less than with artificial turf.
  • Very good absorption of noise and pollution.
  • Grass dissipates heat better than artificial turf.
  • Since it is a natural product, it promotes self-regulation of microorganisms and integration with the environment occurs naturally.


  • Natural grass requires many maintenance tasks: mowing, weeding, fertilizing, pest, fungus and insect control, watering and color balancing.
  • Requires more time and effort.
  • Over time, this maintenance becomes more expensive than maintaining artificial turf.
  • Natural turf requires a lot of water for irrigation, which, especially in dry areas, requires a lot of water.

Artificial turf is becoming an increasingly popular choice for outdoor spaces. For terraces and sports fields. This type of grass is made from artificial fiber, and in recent years manufacturers have adapted it to different needs.

This is a great option for those who don’t have time to care for the garden, but want to see it green. There is no need to water, mow, replant or fertilize. However, there are also some disadvantages to consider.

This way you can find grass of different qualities and purposes, such as grass for sports use.


  • It does not require frequent maintenance to remain eco-friendly. Caring for artificial turf includes washing, cleaning and disinfection.
  • Artificial turf requires less watering to clean and prevent the fibers from drying out than natural grass.
  • Medium to premium quality artificial turf is more durable than natural grass.
  • Maintenance costs are lower than natural grass.


  • The initial investment for installation is higher than for natural grass.
  • If you are installing artificial turf in a hot region, keep in mind that it will heat up much faster than natural grass.
  • Artificial turf does not have the ability to regenerate, so if it becomes unusable, it should be replaced with a new one.
  • It does not restore oxygen like natural grass.


Having considered the advantages and disadvantages of natural and artificial turf, we can point out the main differences between these two types of coverage.

  • Artificial turf costs more at the time of purchase. It is important to note that hand-installed artificial turf remains unchanged for at least 10 years. This is not possible when using natural grass.
  • To keep a natural lawn in its best condition, it needs to be watered generously, fertilized, reseeded every spring, and above all, mowed regularly.  The promised natural lawn does not last 10 years, and often it has to be redone quite quickly.
  • The big difference is that artificial grass is not only beautiful, but also durable. Artificial grass will never fade.
  • If it rains, natural grass is a disaster. Artificial turf does not have this problem because the water drains quickly.
  • Artificial turf can be static in summer and during dry periods. This problem can be solved by simply moisturizing the lawn.
