What Are The Benefits Of Artificial Grass?

On the fence about buying artificial grass? In this article, we’ll break down all of the benefits that artificial grass brings and how it compares to real grass.

Low Maintenance

The main aspect that separates artificial grass from traditional grass is the maintenance, or lack of it! Install artificial grass and no longer will you need to regularly mow the lawn and provided it has been installed correctly, weeds won’t grow through meaning there won’t be a need to spray with chemicals and you won’t need to spend your weekends out there picking them.

The only maintenance required for artificial grass is sweeping any leaves or debris that may accumulate on the lawn over time and even then, the amount of debris can be reduced by trimming any vegetation around the lawn.

Cost Effective

Since it will not need to be watered, artificial grass will save you money on your water bill. The costs for any chemicals such as weed killer, fertilisers and pesticides are also negated, as is the cost for gardening equipment such as a lawnmower.

Looks Good All Year

One of the main draws is that artificial grass will maintain its fresh look throughout all seasons and the products we offer have a ten-year guarantee for colour thanks to high UV stabilisation.

Clean And Family Friendly

Artificial grass is both child and pet friendly; pets coming in with muddy paws and kids digging up mud with grass stains on their clothes will no longer be a concern – particularly throughout winter. The super soft surface makes it comfortable for children and adults alike to sit and play on. Pet urine will not leave an odour as it will simply drain away in the same way that rainwater will. Pet faeces can be bagged up as they would be on a regular lawn and any remaining residue can be removed with a garden hose.
