Let’s face it, when the weather gets colder and the seasons change from summer to autumn to winter, our gardens tend to get neglected. And if you have a real grass lawn, it can be a real problem. Real grass faces lots of issues this time of year. It can turn your garden into a mud bath, it becomes waterlogged, there are ugly brown patches everywhere. This all makes it incredibly high maintenance and makes your garden look dull, dreary, and maybe not your favourite place to be, like it once was in summer.
However, LazyLawn is the ideal alternative to real grass. This is because it suffers from none of the same problems that real grass is susceptible to. It stays green all year round, it’s mud-free, and it’s not impacted by cold and wintry weather. In this article, we tell you why artificial grass is tons better than real grass at this time of year, which makes this the perfect season to install it.
1. LazyLawn stays green all year round
LazyLawn stays green all year round, even in the colder months. So even when the sky is grey and the leaves are brown, your lawn will be vibrant green. Artificial grass keeps your garden looking neat and tidy all year round, so you don’t have to worry about its lush, authentic appearance tarnishing or changing with the seasons.
2. LazyLawn never gets muddy – which makes it great for dogs
Unlike real grass, artificial grass never gets muddy, so you can let your dogs run around outside on it in autumn and winter without worrying about mud. If you’re fed up with pets getting muddy and bringing mess into the house every time they go outside, artificial grass is the perfect solution for you. Dogs won’t tear up the lawn, dig holes, or turn the garden into a mud bath. No more muddy patches, no more dirty pawprints on the sofa, no more keeping the dog inside when the garden is wet.
3. LazyLawn is durable in cold weather
Winter can destroy your real grass lawn. Winter kill refers to severe damage or death caused to your lawn during winter due to conditions such as snow mold, cold desiccation, and crown freeze, in which the cold weather and low temperatures can leave your lawn with brown and bare patches. However, artificial grass is not susceptible to winter kill, and is not impacted by low temperatures and cold weather. It is highly durable and way more robust than real grass as can withstand rain, snow, frost, ice, and wind. So far so, that LazyLawn has a life expectancy of 15 years.
4. LazyLawn has excellent drainage
Unlike natural grass, artificial grass is not susceptible to flooding. Our turf drains quickly, so your lawn won’t get waterlogged or flooded in the heavy rain often experienced in autumn and winter. Real grass can’t cope in wet weather, which results in poor drainage and a lot of mud, and leaves your garden unusable. It’s also very difficult to recover drowned and soggy grass and bring the grass back to life. However, when installed correctly, artificial grass has excellent drainage properties when it rains or snows and, in many cases, will dry quicker than natural grass.
5. LazyLawn is low maintenance
LazyLawn is very low maintenance. In contrast to natural grass, LazyLawn does not need mowing, watering, feeding, or re-turfing – simply remove debris using a leaf blower, brush, or rake, and if the grass gets dirty, hose it down using detergent and a brush. This means you don’t need to spend loads of time and effort bringing your lawn back up to health after winter has destroyed your lawn, like you would with real grass. Artificial grass stays in perfect condition whatever the season, so when it comes to sorting out your garden in spring, you won’t have to worry about revitalising the lawn every year. And less time maintaining means more time enjoying your garden when the warmer weather comes around.
6. Enjoy your garden, whatever the season
All of these incredible benefits of LazyLawn mean you can enjoy your lawn all year round, whatever the weather, whatever the season. From playing sports on the turf to celebrating events such as bonfire night, halloween, and new year, LazyLawn enables you to get more use out of your garden. Often we neglect our gardens in the winter, but with a beautiful artificial grass lawn like LazyLawn, you’ll want to spend as much time in it as you can.
