Following recent unsubstantiated reports about health concerns over artificial grass sports pitches, LazyLawn is reassuring its customers that its landscaping products are completely safe to use and free from health risks. A recent Daily Mail article revealed growing fears over the health risks associated with the recycled rubber crumb infill used in sport pitches, used widely for football and rugby believed to contain cancer-causing chemicals. Unlike the synthetic grass used on sports pitches which are sealed with rubber ‘crumbs’ or pellets made from recycled tyres, LazyLawn uses a kiln dry sand infill, meaning its products contain no nasty chemicals and are just as soft and safe as the real thing. Trusted by families with pets and children, schools, nurseries and play areas across the UK, LazyLawn is the leading supplier for creating hard wearing, great looking and most importantly safe surfaces for its customers. James Footitt, Managing Director at LazyLawn said: “The recent reports about the safety of synthetic sports pitches is concerning, but we must stress our products are different to sports surfaces and we do not use any rubber crumb infill on our landscaping products. We are reassuring our customers that our LazyLawn products are designed with safety in mind and comply with strict safety standards. “Our lawn range is tested for a variety of factors such as permeability and flammability, and is made with soft yarns with no lead or heavy metal content and kiln dry sand infill, as opposed to rubber pellets in this case. “Thanks to our unique pioneering patented technology and developments, this has helped to create a realistic, durable and safe suite of products in the range, offering a LazyLawn solution for every landscaping project.” LazyLawn is the preferred brand for big names such as Selfridges, JD Wetherspoon, Big Brother and Center Parcs. LazyLawn has also been installed at thousands of schools and nurseries up and down the country. Thanks to recent surveys conducted by LazyLawn, it has also been discovered that those who choose a LazyLawn not only save time on garden maintenance, but also save money in the long run. Research found that it would cost £2,700 to have a new LazyLawn professionally installed in the average garden, measuring 40 square meters, which works out at just £180 per year for the 15-year life expectancy of a standard artificial lawn, which is the equivalent to the amount spent on lawn maintenance over the same period.
