Why You Should Install Artificial Grass in Your Garden

Artificial grass is a great solution if you’re looking for a low maintenance alternative to regular grass. Many people opt for decking or a patio, but artificial grass has a range of benefits as well. Let's look at the benefits of artificial grass and why you should install it in your garden

The main benefit of artificial grass is you don’t have to mow it or keep it watered during summer. What’s more, artificial grass looks nice throughout the whole year so you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the stunning lush looking grass. 

Since it’s installed on a strong base that separates the mud and groundwater, there’ll be no mud trudged into your home after your kids or dog have been playing outside. It’s easy to install and will probably only take a few hours, depending on the size of your garden. You’ll have to dig up your existing lawn and edge the area, but with modern solutions, your new lawn will look and feel real. There are plenty of videos and guides on the Internet that can help you with the installation and lots of places will offer free samples, so that you can truly get a feel for it before you invest.

Artificial grass doesn’t require any harmful pesticides or fertilisers to keep it looking healthy and aesthetically pleasing. As well as saving time, this limited amount of maintenance will also save you money, making the initial investment well worth it. It’s great for elderly people who struggle with mobility or people who travel a lot and won’t be able to maintain the garden. A quick sweep of a broom once in a while will clear away any debris, but that’s all it takes.

Another benefit of artificial grass is that you can’t be allergic to it. According to research, 1 in 5 people in the UK suffer from hay fever and the majority of sufferers are allergic to grass pollen. This means that, when everyone else is out enjoying the nicer weather of the spring and summer months, those with hay fever have to hide indoors. Although artificial grass doesn’t cure hay fever, it will reduce exposure to grass pollen and allow sufferers to enjoy BBQ season.

The benefits of an artificial lawn outweigh the benefits of natural grass, particularly if you live in an area that regularly experiences harsh weather conditions that tend to harm your garden. If you’re interested in saving time, money and water while adding to the curb appeal of your home, then artificial grass is a suitable option for you.
