ARTIFICIAL GRASS VERSUS NATURAL GRASS

by | Mar 16, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Why would you want to choose artificial grass over natural grass? There are many advantages and we’re going to be looking at some of the most important ones today. We realise that making that all important decision to go over to artificial grass from natural is not an easy one. There’s been a few myths around over the years with regards to artificial grass and we’re always more than happy to slay most of those. So, read on and find out why artificial grass can be such a great alternative to natural grass and kiss goodbye to dry, bald patches and mowing the lawn.

MAINTENANCE

Firstly, artificial grass provides a lot less maintenance without the need for chemicals, mowing or hosing down in summer. This means you save money on utility bills, less chemicals means less harm to the environment and in summer, you won’t have to worry about a water hose ban. Artificial grass is simple to maintain, only needing the odd brushing every now and again.

INSTALLATION

Installation of artificial grass is very easy, it’s so easy you can do it yourself. However, if you have an aversion to anything DIY, then let one of our team do it from The Turf Warehouse. We’re are all trained to install artificial grass, so we can come and do it for you once we’ve taken the measurements.

AESTHETICS

Artificial grass won’t succumb to the vagaries of the season the way natural grass does. It keeps its colour and shape throughout the year, always looking lush and green. Natural grass on the other hand, can become patchy and muddy throughout the rainy season and in summer, when there’s dry periods, it can get dry and patched. Not so with artificial grass – ever.

LONGEVITY

After your initial investment, you’ll save money on maintenance and once installed, your artificial grass will last for anything up to 15 years and over. Care for your artificial lawn is minimal, only requiring the odd brush and wipe down, and we can show you how to care for your lawn so you get the most out of it. Artificial grass used in sports usually lasts for at least a decade, so if you have it in your garden where it’s in a less robust environment, it should last much, much longer.
