Why Artificial Grass is Great
The quality of the fake grass products you can now buy in the UK is very high. From a distance, and sometimes even quite close, it's very difficult to tell the difference. In recent years the quality has gone up and up, and now the top of the range synthetic grass products not only look exactly like grass, but are starting to feel very similar as well - especially for walking.
Tired of Cutting Grass?
We've never met anyone who thinks that looking after a real lawn is a fun thing to do in UK. It's a constant annoyance to many people - watering it during very hot summers (hoping there's no hosepipe ban), dealing with the bald patches and the mud in the winter, and the never ending mowing.
With a synthetic lawn the frustration just melts away - and you have amazing grass 12 months a year.
A good number of the largest suppliers will be able to deliver and fit you lawn wherever you are in the country, including in UK.
Tell Me The Cost of Artificial Grass in UK?
Artificial grass is a little bit more expensive than a natural lawn, but you need to take into consideration that the fake lawn will be in pristine condition for many years, you can throw away that rusty old lawnmower, and never have your partner moaning that the grass is too long, too wet, too muddy etc.
But beyond choosing the type of grass (aka the quality of the product) you will also need to know the area of your lawn - and of course if it's a complicated shape with slopes then it will be more expensive to install than a flat sqaure surface. Oh and you'll need to get an underlay to keep it springy.
Artifical Grass Uses
People are using artificial grass for a wide range of places - the obvious ones are back gardens and football pitches (both five-a-side and full size) but many homes have installed these products on roof terraces, children's play areas and around swimming pools.
But why else is it so good? Without pesticides and mowing you're helping the environment. Even grass cuttings are often thrown in the bin and need to be carried away by the dustmen.
The Cons of Artificial Grass
Although there are many many benefits to laying down artificial turf, there are of course some drawbacks.
You can expect your artificial turf to last at least ten years if you install it professionally. And we really recommend that you get the experts in to avoid problems further down the line.
