Advantages of Artificial Grass

With more and more artificial grass types on the market it can be hard to know which is the right product to choose - but we always recommend going for the best quality. The days of plastic-feeling grass are well behind us. Yes, those are still available if you want a really cheap product, but the vast majority of options are incredibly soft.

Hate Your Lawnmower?

It really is a huge pain looking after a real grass lawn 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.

Many of the national suppliers will now come direct to your home and lay your new lawn, so you have a really wide choice in UK.

How Expensive is Artificial Grass in UK?

synthetic grass 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

However the events industry has taken this product to their hearts and you can regularly see it at exhibitions and festivals - and many cafes and restaurants use it to cover their not-so-attractive external areas.

But why else is it so good? Never water you lawn again! Well, if you live in a desert then it might be worth watering just to keep the soil from cracking away, but since you're in the UK that won't be a problem.

Choosing The Best Product

UK astro turf The decision to buy artificial grass is a good one, but the next decision is to choose what to buy.

You probably already have a budget in mind, so that's a good starting point. At the premium end of the market it's becoming very hard to tell the difference between fake and real.

Our favourite change has been to improve the look by adding imperfections and they do that by interspersing the perfect colour with blades that pretend to be dying. Just like real grass.
