5 Guaranteed Benefits of Artificial Grass vs Natural Grass
Unbelievably, the artificial grass industry is booming. Why, I hear you cry, when many of us love nothing but the smell of freshly cut grass on a summer’s day? LazyLawn give you the lowdown as to why the popularity of imitation grass is on the up.
I think the above ‘before and after’ photos speak for themselves but grass can suffer a great deal of wear and tear due to weather conditions. It only takes a scorching hot summer to dry grass out. Either that or you risk using a lot of water via a hosepipe to keep your grass looking healthy. Artificial grass on the other hand, does not suffer from any wear or tear and is an extremely durable product.
2. Easy to maintain
Anita Roddick, founder of the Body Shop, found the statue island in her driveway (see above), particularly difficult to maintain before changing over to installing artificial grass. Maintenance is very simple — no lawn mowing needed! You may need to brush the grass a little to rid of occasional bits of dirt but if you have a busy lifestyle, this is perfect for you. Those who are less mobile and less able to be active in the garden would also find the low maintenance extremely beneficial, with awkward, hard to reach spaces a thing of the past.
3. Keeps you clean
Made of polyethylene, you have no worry of any dirt being brought inside. As an all-weather turf, you can sit down and even walk on the grass to your hearts content.
4. Not just for gardens
The obvious choice for artificial grass would be for your garden but the turf is much more flexible than you think. Many establishments such as bars and restaurants, feature imitation grass on their balconies or terraces. You can install grass indoors and even in different colours — allowing you to be as inventive as you want to be.
5. Saves you money and the environment
It is a case of needing to speculate to accumulate. Yes, you will need to spend money to have your grass installed but once it’s installed that means no money spent on weed killer or any other kinds of lawn treatment. It also means that you save water, with no need for a hosepipe.
