In this month’s post we’re going over the many myths that come up about fake grass. We’re going to look at 5 of the most common, and you can then weigh up whether or not you want to invest in it if you haven’t already. Artificial turf is so beneficial in terms of freeing up your time so you can do other things and enjoy your garden, and spend less of it maintaining your garden. This can include anything from using chemicals to rid it of weeds, moss and pests, and mowing it on a regular basis to keep it tidy.
Myth 1 – Artificial grass doesn’t look real.
Artificial grass has come a long way since the heady days of football when it was first used as a turf to play on. Back in those days it was known as Astroturf, but it’s come on in leaps and bounds since. It’s now so authentic looking and with different piles so you can have whatever type of fake grass you think is right for your type of property. What you will find is that it looks green and lush all year long.
Myth 2 – It’s really bad for the environment.
No in fact it helps the environment. If you’ve been relying on chemicals to keep those pesky weeds and insects at bay you won’t have to do that anymore with artificial turf. What’s more, you won’t have to use water for hosing in summer or use electricity to mow your lawn, so you’ll save money and energy, thus helping the environment.
Myth 3 – It’s not safe for children.
Artificial grass for children is safe. We know that plenty of our customers use it in their gardens for their families. If you have a history of allergies, your children are going to love artificial grass because it means they can go out into the garden and play, without you worrying that they’ll be sneezing and coughing. Also, plenty of nurseries use artificial turf and it’s a great success with their children, it means they can go out in it when they want, so no muddy, waterlogged patches to worry about in winter. Also, if they fall over they’ll have a soft cushioned landing.
Myth 4 – Fake grass lawns are too expensive.
No they’re not! Here at The Turf Warehouse we have a versatile range of different piles of artificial grass, and working together we can find something that’s in line with your budget. It’s become so popular, it’s nowhere near as expensive as it used to be when it first became more widely known.
Myth 5 – It’s not safe for pets.
Nonsense! Artificial grass for pets is a great benefit to your furry friend using it to play on as well as their toilet. As long as you have a permeable backing for your fake grass, any liquids will drain away naturally. Any solids can be lifted and placed in the bin as you would normally on a natural lawn.
