The market for artificial grass is growing rapidly in the UK. Driven by a combination of advanced manufacturing techniques combined with an increasing awareness of the longer term environmental and economic benefits. It was often used in arenas for sports that were originally or are normally played on grass. However, it is now widely used for residential lawns and you are just as likely to see it in your neighbour’s garden. There are many benefits from having an artificial lawn. There is no doubt at all that in our busy lives time becomes more precious as we seek to juggle all our responsibilities. Mowing the lawn can take 2 to 3 hours out of your week and that is just for a normal size garden. Artificial grass needs very little maintenance and can free up a lot of time. False Grass is also very valuable to Older people who cannot physically mow their lawns.
As our climate grows warmer there will be more pressure on reducing water usage. Hose pipe restrictions can really destroy a natural lawn, but artificial grass will not be affected. Another benefit from artificial grass is that it actively helps the environment. As well as substantially reducing water usage we also get no carbon emissions from petrol driven lawn mowers. No fertilisers needed. Pollution from water spill off carrying chemicals into the drains is minimised.
It always surprises people to know the diverse circumstances where artificial grass can be beneficial. Due to all our synthetic grass being pet friendly it makes an ideal surface for dogs as it is easy to clean and keep sterile and there will be no muddy paws making a mess in the home.
Very useful to be used around swimming pools. No muddy areas to carry dust and dirt into the pool, no grooves from the sun loungers and stays green whatever the weather.
If you live in a home with a roof terrace it can be difficult to grow a natural lawn, yet artificial grass can cover it very nicely. It also means you don’t need to worry about disposing the grass cuttings
Very often in busy family homes especially with children, you can end up with parts of the lawn where constant usage will not allow grass to grow as it should do and bald patches which quickly turn to mud when wet can cause real problems. Carefully laid artificial lawns can blend in with surrounding features and overcome this problem.
