After you have finished your reading here, you will start to appreciate the tongue in cheek and coincidental approach taken to this online introductory piece. It is a brief intro to the practical and sustainable processes of synthetic lawn production and the (practical and synthetic) required maintenance thereafter. The humor refers to the original saying. It goes like this. First impressions last. But perhaps there could be a double meaning in this because by the time your first visitors have viewed your first or new lawn they could be gasping with admiration. Or they could be suitably impressed.
Either way. The double entendre can be explained. But let it be known that there is no joke here. A false impression indeed, because of course, this lawn that gets rolled out for the very first time is not really grass, not in the real or organic sense. Speaking of which, you may have become aware of the close associations between doing things organic and sustainable developments. The synthetic lawn rollout is a sustainable development.
The major reason for this is that it requires very little resources, human and material to do this and thereafter. Thereafter in the sense that once laid out, the synthetic lawn will still be requiring ongoing maintenance. But not much of it. One very important factor about this sustainable development is that no water (it has become quite a scarce resource in many parts of the world over the last few years, and this negative trend is likely to worsen in these parts) is required.
Of course, in certain instances, watering will be required. A good example will be the so-called astro turf which is used mainly for sports and recreation purposes. In this case, first and false impressions will last.
