Artificial grass is quickly becoming everybody’s ideal grass lawn, but why? If you’ve noticed an upsurge in popularity in this versatile outdoor surface, then we can tell you why. This post is all about why artificial grass is so popular – we know that our customers love it because they tell us so. They use artificial grass to replace tired old lawns and soon find that both pets, children and adult adjust to it in next to no time. 

ARTIFICIAL GRASS LAWNS HAVE COME A LONG WAY SINCE THE 60S

Artificial grass is popular for lots of different reasons, but the main one is that it is so versatile. No more is it the cheap plastic version that falls apart in a short period of time. Artificial grass has moved on a lot since then, it’s far more sophisticated and far more authentic, it’s likely that no one will notice you even have it. It’s harder and harder to distinguish it from real grass, so you’ve got a lawn without all the hard work but with all the elegance of a plush green lawn all year round. 

WHAT IS THE HARD WORK THOUGH?

Well, a natural lawn requires a lot of maintenance as you probably already know. There’s the cutting of the lawn using power or fuel, then there’s the pesticides, herbicides and fungicides to keep it free from moss, pests and weeds that may harm the environment and then there’s the watering during the hot summer months. That’s more towards the utility bills. 

If you suffer from hay-fever, and that’s not just you but the children and the pets, then you’ve got a problem on your hands, because after all that hard work keeping it neat and tidy, but you can’t even spend any time in it.

With artificial grass, all the family can enjoy it. You’ll also be saving money because you won’t need to mow your lawn, water it or use harmful chemicals. The only care and attention an artificial lawn requires is regular brushing and a quick clean with some soapy water, and that’s it. There’ll be no muddy footprints, no grass stains and no grass and mud being dragged into the kitchen and through to the rest of the house.

DOES LAYING ARTIFICIAL GRASS HELP WITH DRAINAGE?

DOES LAYING ARTIFICIAL GRASS HELP WITH DRAINAGE?

Yes, absolutely. We install a suitably thick layer of crushed hardcore beneath the grass which is one of the best ways to help deal with surfaces where there is excess water.
The water will simply run through the artificial lawn drainage holes and down through the layers beneath then settle.

CAN ARTIFICIAL GRASS BE LAID ON SLOPES?

Yes it can, and we have installed quite a few artificial lawns on steep slopes. It takes a bit more time and consideration but the end result can be just as satisfying as a flat surface.
