Spring will soon be upon us and, for many, that means the trees and shrubs will begin to bud, flowers will bloom and our lawns will turn green once again and begin to grow. The perfect way to shake off winter’s cold and lack of colour! While all of that is well and good, (who doesn’t like the spring foliage after all?), for many homeowners, this means it is time once again to mow the lawn.
Taking care of our lawns has become much more than just mowing it once or twice a week. You have to water it, feed it, treat it for a wide range of diseases and insects that are trying to undo all of your hard work and then water it some more, feed it some more and continue doing this throughout spring and summer. Maintaining your lawn is time consuming and expensive and many people are deciding to trade in their natural lawns for something better.
Artificial grass is fast becoming the new trend in outdoor spaces for many homeowners who are tired of maintaining their lawns week after week. Made from recycled materials, artificial grass offers many benefits over real grass including:
- Less Maintenance: Artificial grass requires no mowing, trimming or watering, saving you both time and money and enabling you to enjoy your outdoor space more often.
- No Pesticides or Chemicals: With artificial grass, you don’t have to constantly treat your lawn using dangerous chemicals and pesticides that could be poisoning your children and pets.
- Strong and Durable:
Artificial grass is incredibly strong; meaning playing sports will not damage the grass and leave it patchy, like you would find with a natural lawn. Artificial grass is made to last, meaning it holds up against the wear and tear of children and pets.
- No Waterlogs or Mud: Artificial lawns let water flow through them so they do not hold any standing water like traditional lawns do and that also means no mud being brought into your home.
- No Drying Out: Artificial lawns aren’t prone to drying and cracking like traditional lawns which use natural grass. Extreme weather won’t turn your lawn into a dust bowl which will leave your home’s exterior cleaner.
There are many benefits to installing artificial grass in your home’s outdoor space. From saving time and money, to providing a healthier looking lawn all year round, artificial grass can add value to your home and make your lawn more enjoyable for your family and friends.
