Why Good Bones Star Mina Starsiak Hawk Likes An Artificial Lawn
Mina Starsiak Hawk of HGTV's "Good Bones" swapped out real grass for an artificial lawn at Charlotte Hall, the historic mansion she transformed into an event venue.
"As much stress as the turf has caused, it's always the right choice in my book," said Starsiak Hawk. Because it's often used for sports, artificial turf is incredibly durable.
The one complaint many homeowners have is that it often doesn't look like real grass. In that case, they can opt for artificial grass, which is similar but not exactly the same.
Artificial grass has longer blades and is softer, so it mimics real grass. Moreover, homeowners can also choose the shade of green to fully customize their yard.
Artificial lawn is "basically zero maintenance and looks epic year-round. So even a winter wedding can have a nice pop of greenery," says Starsiak Hawk.
Synthetic grass is also more eco-friendly and sustainable because it uses less water and can be made from recycled materials. It can also last as long as 25 years.
