More people are opting for synthetic grass in their gardens because they require minimal upkeep. They can also work well in a small space and for people who find garden maintenance difficult or expensive.
Artificial grass doesn’t need to be mowed and you get a green lawn all year round. It can’t be dug up, which is why it is particularly popular with families who have young children and dogs. Quick benefits of Artificial Grass are:
Continued Fresh Look
Previously, synthetic lawn turf looked very similar to the mats you used to get on greengrocers’ displays. Now, you can get products that are a convincing alternative to real turf.
The fibres are cut at different lengths and are in a range of greens and browns, which gives the grass a natural look and feel.
If the lawn is laid and looked after properly, it can last approximately 7 to 10 years.
The main downside is that you won’t get the lovely cut-grass smell and the same biodiversity as a real grass lawn.
Some maintenance is also required. It needs to be swept and watered occasionally. You may get algae and moss growing on the grass and bird poo stains, but they should be easy to remove with hot water and household detergent.
