Natural Grass V.S. Artificial Lawns in Your Massachusetts Home

Not sure whether real grass or artificial lawns is best for your Massachusetts home? You can go through the pros and cons of both to decide your choice.

Pros of Natural Grass Lawns

  • Natural Grass is brilliant for the environment. It provides a habitat for wildlife and also provides oxygen for you, your family and the planet. It complements the rest of the plants and trees in your garden to create a natural green space.
  • The look and feel you get from the real deal can’t be compared to the ones you get from artificial lawns. Keeping it regularly mowed and neat will improve the natural look and feel of your whole garden.
  • Your mental health will be benefitted from having living plants and nature surrounding you. It can reduce stress and improve mood by spending more time in green space like your garden.

Cons of Natural Grass 

It is not easy to keep up with fertilizing and caring for your lawn. It consumes time and adds to your expenses. However, you can always choose the cost-effective way by contacting a lawn service Andover MA in Massachusetts or a lawn service Gloucester MA to take care of your lawn.

Pros of Artificial Lawns

  • Artificial lawns need less maintenance than natural grasses to keep it looking great.
  • You don’t have to weed, mow or fertilize an artificial turf saving you time and money. You can also enjoy your lawn all year round, without fear of mud or frozen lawn underfoot.

Cons of Artificial Lawns 

  • Buying a fake turf incurs large expenditure. It will often cost you thousands of pounds for a lovely-looking lawn. Picking a cheaper option will give you a garden that you don’t love the look of.
  • Artificial turfs need replacing every 8 years or so. The expense will keep repeating itself. In the long run, the cost will exceed the cost of overseeding your natural lawn.
  • An uneven ground or a sloping garden needs extra precaution. In case your garden is uneven, you have to put down an underlay to even it out. Only then you can lay down the turf. You might not be able to have artificial turf at all in a sloping garden. It often won’t stick and can slide to one end.
  • Artificial turf isn’t great for the environment. Think about the production of the plastic and the lack of carbon dioxide processing.

Natural grass has many more benefits than the artificial lawn. The look, feel, health benefits and environmental factors are enough to convince that natural grass will be the best choice for you.

Dear Corliss Customers,

Over the past two weeks Corliss made the decision to suspend all construction activities to follow Governor Baker's  “Stay at Home."  Since that time, we have carefully reviewed the details of the order and have had several discussions as a management team and with our employees. With that being said, we have determined that our field operations are EXEMPT from the Governor’s order.  Therefore, we have made the decision to return to work.

  We have spent a considerable amount of time contemplating the most appropriate decision with regards to resuming operations.  We do not take this decision lightly as we have the utmost respect for our employees, customers, and the general public’s well being.  Through careful consideration we have determined that with proper preparations, policies and the endorsement of the government, we can effectively carry out our work.  We are not requiring employees to return to work.  If any of our employees do not feel comfortable working under the current circumstances, we respect their decision and their future work with us will not be in jeopardy.

As for our office, the office will remain closed to the public until the “Stay at Home” order has been lifted. During this time, we will continue to use our technological resources to work remotely.  Our remote office hours will be from 9 am to 5 pm.  If you have any questions please feel free to reach out via email at or via phone at (978) 356-4224.  Please note that phone calls may experience a backlog, so please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.

We also understand that you, our valued customers, may not feel comfortable with us being on your property at this time.  We understand and respect that feeling and will do whatever it takes to work out an appropriate time for us to resume working at your property once you feel it is safe to do so.  For those of you who are comfortable with us completing work on your property at this time, rest assured that we will be following the protocols.  One employee per vehicle, cleansing products in all vehicles, gloves and masks when needed, as well as the 6 foot social distance spacing.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.  We can be reached at (978)356-4224 or at 

            We have included the link to the Massachusetts website where we found the supporting documentation to help in our determination.  Specifically, in two places one under “Public Works” and two under “General Questions – Essential Services Related” sixth bullet point.

  Thank you for your continued support during these times!
