Benefits of Artificial Grass

Some people are put off by the idea of artificial grass because they prefer the idea of having an all-natural garden. However more and more people are realising the incredible benefits that using artificial grass provides.

These include –

  • Extremely durable – A big part of the reason that natural grass becomes damaged is due to heavy use. With artificial grass, there are no concerns about it becoming slippery, muddy or dangerous to walk on. This makes it especially useful when placed in areas of heavy use such as stairways and walkways.
  • Little maintenance required – The only real maintenance that’s required with artificial grass is to sweep away any leaves that fall on it and clean it when it becomes dirty. In comparison to real grass, that usually needs cutting at least once a week, this level of maintenance is tiny.
  • Practical – When you use sunbeds on your lawn during the summer months, you’re essentially blocking any sunlight from getting to the grass, which causes it to become dry and patchy. You don’t need to worry about this type of thing with artificial grass. Another concern for people with pets and kids is their lawn becoming muddy and the mud being walked into the house. When you have artificial grass your kids and pets can enjoy it all year round without any need to worry about mess being created.
  • Saves money – Another great benefit of artificial grass is that it doesn’t need to be mowed, watered or have pesticides applied. This means you don’t have to buy expensive garden equipment such as lawnmowers and edge trimmers. You also save a great deal of money on water since watering a large lawn during periods of warm weather can account for a huge percentage of your overall water consumption.
  • Great for the environment – The fact that you don’t need to water or apply pesticides/fertilisers to your lawn doesn’t only save you money but it’s also great for the environment.
  • Highly versatile – Artificial grass can be used in a number of settings. For domestic properties it can be used in your lawn, on outdoor staircases and balconies. For business use, it’s great for play areas, sports centres, exhibitions and schools.
