Artificial grass is on the rise in the UK. With more and more people turning to artificial grass as a solution to their garden transformations. With time often being the main reason for their decision.
The benefits clearly outweigh the initial cost, as it saves countless hours and money regarding upkeep and maintenance. It can help to improve one’s own lifestyle as well as the impact on the environment overall with the reduction of water consumption and chemical upkeep.
The thought of no more mowing or attending to the maintenance of the lawn is a relief for most busy people. I would like to say, though you won’t ever need to mow, you will still need to maintain your artificial lawn, but it’s a breeze and less time and effort is required.
You can remove large organic materials using a leaf blower, while a natural bristle broom can fluff areas that get a lot of traffic. The only time that it will need water is when tough debris will need to be cleared. If you don’t have a dog or pets, then this might not even be a necessary regular cleaning method.
So many people absolutely despise this specific chore, but it is a necessary burden when you have a natural lawn. With an artificial lawn, no mower will ever be needed. Plastic grass will never grow, so spend all of your extra time playing on your lawn with friends, family, and pets. Hosting garden parties and BBQ’S like me.
Normally a real lawn would require regular watering in the early morning and late evening, and with hose pipe bans on the increase, it can be a pain to keep nice and green. However with artificial grass, it will never need this much water maintenance. The only time artificial grass needs water, is when it is time to clean it, which is only occasionally. When cleaning, you will need to hose the blades off with a short burst of water to get rid of the dirt. Because of this, you will see the advantage of a reduction in your water bill.
In general, most garden lawn areas have various chemicals. Because artificial lawns do not need weed killers, fertilizers, pesticides or many other chemicals, they are totally safe for any child to play on. Many more towns and cities such as Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Leicestershire are opting to use artificial lawns in place of natural grass in there outdoors space areas for this reason.
There is no doubt that dogs love to play outside on the lawn, yet sometimes they get a bit overzealous and will eat it. Most dogs generally ignore artificial grass, and any mess that is left behind can be cleaned off with just some water spay and a chemical free organic mild detergent. A bonus for us pet lovers that own dogs is that the four-legged friends won’t be able to dig unsightly holes to bury their bones and toys and then leave dirt and mud through the home.
Artificial lawns can withstand almost all-weather conditions,therefore you can enjoy your green looking lawn all year round. It will continue to stay green and closely resemble a real lawn. Even the areas of the lawn that get the most traffic will only require very minimal effort to keep it looking new.
With garden maintenance comes the use of chemical sprays and this can cause some problems for pets and children. However, artificial lawns stay looking green and lush without any chemical help. And because the material does not provide food or living areas for bugs, pest problems are virtually eliminated. The lack of pesticides and fertilizers are good for the environment too. And you are also saving some gardening pennies.
Your synthetic lawn area will withstand wear and tear for quite a few years. The materials that are used in its manufacturing are made to withstand traffic, all kinds of climates, and weather changes. It won’t even lose its colour because of ultraviolet ray exposure, the fibres are made stable against it.
This is one of the largest problems and time-consuming activities with a natural lawn. There are so many types of weeds that creep into a natural lawn, weed control really is an entire full-time job all on its own. It takes up so much time and money, however with an artificial lawn, weeds are made redundant in their role and no longer a problem. You may sometimes have the odd stubborn one that will grow through, but they are far less prevalent when you have an artificial lawn.
