The average lifespan of artificial turf is about 10 years. That means unlike other landscaping costs, your upfront investment will depreciate over time. Many manufacturers offer warranties, so keep that in mind as you shop.
When I looked at the types of lawns, I chose turf, because garden turf is real grass and rich soil, and it is used by people who can afford it to quickly grow a beautiful and healthy natural lawn. I preferred to hire qualified landscape designers so that they can do all the quality work. I was pleased with the quality of their work.
