In addition, combined with a decline in the amount of free time average people have, subsequently has led to artificial grass being the material of choice for many with an outdoor space that they just don’t have the time to maintain. As a result of artificial grass requiring little or no effort in terms of upkeep and preservation.

Here at Welch Mill, our quality artificial grass is ultra-realistic and extremely versatile. Meaning it will improve the look of any size of space, including shaded areas where real grass struggles to grow.
