Real lawn will need a lot of your time in order to maintain it and to be able to achieve a green beautiful lawn. Real lawn will have weed growing out, you will need to water it daily and you will have to mow it frequently.

Fake lawn on the other hand still needs maintenance but not as much as real lawn. You will still need to brush the fake lawn and to rinse it once in a while. It will keep the fake lawn beautiful and to allow the blade to be standing upright.

Cost

There is a huge difference between both of the different types of lawn. Initially, fake lawns will cost much higher than real lawns but, over the years, the maintenance of real lawns will snowball into a much higher cost than having a fake lawn.

Fake lawn comes with a big upfront cost of about $20 per square foot. Once it is in place and installed, it will be almost free from additional cost for the next 10 to 20 years. Real lawn only cost around 50 cents to a dollar per square foot but it needs both time and money to maintain it. You will need to spend on water, fertilizers and other maintenance equipment.
