8 reasons why you need artificial grass
Artificial grass tends to get overlooked as gardening essential, mainly due to its unfair reputation of being a tacky, plastic bright green, cheap alternative to real grass… Well this is no longer true! Artificial grass has evolved, it’s now so similar to real grass that you simply can’t tell the difference. There are many benefits to installing artificial grass, whether you need replace your existing natural grass lawn or your wooden decking is in need of some TLC. Here’s just a few of the reasons why artificial grass could be perfect for you!
1. Mowing will be a thing of the past
That's right, it’s time to free up some space in your shed. You can get rid of or sell that lawn mower, as you will never have to mow the lawn again! Artificial grass doesn’t grow, so it will stay neat and tidy for the duration of its life. Whether the physical demands of mowing aren’t feasible anymore or it’s simply finding the time (and let’s not talk about the unpredictable British weather), artificial grass will save you time and effort. Artificial grass is available in a range of heights, from 4mm - 40mm, so you can have a garden that looks exactly how you want it to without the hard work.
2. No more watering
As artificial grass doesn’t grow, it doesn't need watering to stop it from turning brown, dying or creating bare patches in hot summers. Your garden won’t suffer from unexpected heat waves or hosepipe bans, but instead, it will look just as lush all year round. It'll also save you time and more importantly, it will keep your water bill down.
3. It won't need sowing or feeding
You won't have to feed artificial grass or put seed down because of worn out patches from constant foot fall/wear from garden furniture or pets playing on it, once again saving you money and hours of work across its lifetime
4. Sunny days are spent with a glass of Pimms instead
What's worse on a hot day than having to work in your garden instead of sitting out and enjoying it? Hot days in the UK are few and far between, so surely you would rather be firing up the BBQ for the family or sitting in the sun around the garden table with friends rather than spending hours mowing, watering, feeding and edging the lawn (and that's before you start on the flowers and flower bed). Well with artificial grass, all this is erased and you never have to do any of it ever again! Get out and enjoy that British sunshine (Pimms optional).
5. No pollen = bye bye hayfever
There is nothing worse, getting to that time of the year where everyone is excited for summer holidays, beer gardens, long nights and BBQs. You however will be sat inside praying for autumn. Real grass affects people with hay fever and others that are sensitive to pollen, but artificial grass means no pollen making it non-allergenic and safe to use. If you have hay fever or are allergic to pollen, why not give artificial grass a try and spend more time enjoying your garden in summer, not hiding from it?
