Why should you choose artificial grass for your garden?

Artificial grass
The sun is out, and of course you want to make the most of it while we have it! But who wants to sit out and enjoy the sun in an overgrown back garden. But then again, who wants to waste valuable sun bathing time cutting the grass? Not me, that’s for sure! So why not avoid the problem altogether and install artificial grass instead!

What is artificial grass?

Of course before you get something installed in your lawn, you want to know what it is, if you don’t already anyway. Artificial grass is created from synthetic materials such as polyethylene and nylon. And over the years, the formula to artificial grass has only improved and is safe for children and pets to play on. Most of this is now UV resistant which means that the sun won’t damage or discolour the grass.

Why is artificial grass better than natural grass?

There are many positives for installing artificial grass, and these are just a few of them!

  • Perfect grass all year around.

This means you can get rid of your lawn mower, you don’t need to keep the grass fed or watered and even when the weather takes a turn for the worst, you can still look out on to a perfectly preened patch of grass.

  • Money saving in the long run.

Keeping a good looking garden can be very expensive. So what not cut that long term expense and just have the one initial cost of buying the artificial and having it fitted?

  • Good for the environment

Most grass is kept green and glossy through the use of pesticides and chemicals,.
