Artificial lawns are becoming more and more popular with homeowners across the country. Modern artificial grass has come on leaps and bounds in the last decade and is now a viable alternative to real grass in many circumstances. In this blog post we will outline the many benefits of artificial grass over traditional lawns.
No Watering Required
One of the greatest benefits of artificial grass is that it doesn’t need watering. This can be an added bonus for those who don’t like watering or those who don’t have time to water their gardens regularly. Watering your lawn takes up time and can be expensive if you have a water meter, so removing this chore from your list is certainly worth considering if you want to save money and get more out of your free time.
The cost of artificial grass is often cheaper than real grass. The cost of artificial grass depends on the size of the area that needs to be covered, but artificial turf can be purchased at a reasonable price. It is therefore not uncommon for people to opt for artificial turf because it’s cheaper than real grass and will make their garden look just as good.
Doesn’t Need Mowing Or Weeding.
Artificial grass also means that you will never have to mow again! Instead of spending hours looking after your lawn by cutting it with a lawn-mower, now all you need to do is vacuum it once in a while and sweep away any debris that has fallen onto the surface during storms or windy weather. You also will never need to weed your artificial lawn or put down fertiliser.
It Looks Great All Year Round
One of the best things about artificial grass is that it looks fantastic all year round. It’s not affected by the weather and It doesn’t get muddy, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after your children or pets. You can just sit back and enjoy your garden without having to do any work!
Pet Urine Won’t Stain It
One of the main reasons why people install artificial grass is because it’s easier to maintain than natural grass. This is especially true if you have a dog in your household. Pet urine will not leave stains, like it does on real grass. With artificial grass, there are no worries about your dog urinating on it and leaving stains! However, we recommend that you give your artificial lawn a quick rinse down with a hose every so often if your dog regularly urinates on the surface. r
Less Mud Around The House And Garden
When it rains, your garden becomes muddy and sometimes mud unfortunately ends up in the house. This is particularly true if you have pets or children playing in the garden, as they are likely to drag mud into the house on their paws and clothes. Artificial grass eliminates this issue meaning there are less muddy footy and paw prints to mop!
Artificial Grass Makes A Good Alternative To Real Grass For Many Applications
As you might have guessed, artificial grass is a good alternative to real grass in certain applications. For example, if your garden has a steep slope or shaded area then it may be difficult to mow or impossible to grow real grass in these areas. Likewise, if you’d like your lawn to be short and tidy rather than long and shaggy—so that it requires less maintenance—then artificial grass may be an ideal solution for you. Additionally, if you want to keep the lawn from growing altogether (perhaps because of its proximity to sensitive equipment), then installing artificial turf would make sense as well.
When it comes to getting the most out of your garden, artificial grass is a great option. It will save you money on water bills and it looks great all year round. Unlike real grass, it doesn’t need mowing or weeding so you can spend more time enjoying this outdoor space.
