By investing in artificial grass from GrassWarehouse, it will save you money in the long run. It is also a very attractive alternative compared to a real grass lawn due to the everchanging weather in the United Kingdom. As artificial grass maintains its bold and fresh looking green colour for many years (6 years plus UV warranty at GrassWarehouse depending on style), then it will help flowers and plants to stand out. This will increase the aesthetic of your garden, especially as you will have more time to style your garden by adding pops of colours from flowers. If flowers aren’t something you are interested in and instead just want a perfect lawn all year round then artificial grass is most definitely the answer as you won’t have the dig the borders of your lawn out anymore.
Although the initial cost is more than real turf, your garden is guaranteed to look well-kept and pristine all year round, especially in the colder months when you spend a lot less time tending to your garden. You also won’t have to mow the lawn anymore and won’t have to deal with pesky weeds. Once it is laid, it will be perfect for many, many years.
Artificial grass is much easier to look after. Apart from the odd brush and clean with a hose pipe to remove dirt and debris, your artificial grass will require little else. In addition, brushing against the piles every so often will help to add volume to your grass as it will appear fluffier. The odd weed might appear but this is not very common, more than likely a handful a year if that depending on if you used weed membrane. We recommend using this in the installation process to eliminate the problem of weeds coming through.
Pesticides and Water
When looking after your artificial grass, you won’t need to use pesticides and other chemicals to maintain it. Once more, you won’t need to water your artificial grass in the summer which will reduce water wastage so it is much better for the environment. This is great as you won’t have to worry about when hosepipe bans are in place. In addition, you also won’t have to deal with your grass dying in the summer months from the sun or from when you have summer stuff out like a swimming pool outside on the lawn for more than a few days.
It is clear why artificial grass has grown in popularity over the years. The lack of maintenance whilst still being able to have a pristine lawn means it is perfect if you aren’t a keen gardener or just don’t have time to maintain your garden. It is the perfect addition to your garden if you are looking for a well landscaped outside area as it will always have sharp, neat edges. It is also a lot more authentic than it used to be so it looks more like the real deal.
