Lawns can be hard work, which is why a growing number of people are opting for artificial turf for their property. Not only does a natural lawn require a high degree of care to keep it looking good, but it is also very vulnerable to developing bald patches due to the actions of pets or children. If you want an outdoor surface that looks beautifully natural at the same time as being incredibly hard-wearing, artificial grass could be exactly what you’re looking for.
Artificial grass looks amazing
Many people recall artificial grass as being clearly synthetic with an unusual green colour. Over the past decade or two, artificial grass has come a long way in terms of its appearance. Contemporary grasses are very natural looking and there are a variety of different shades on the market. The texture has changed as well: modern artificial grass has a soft, springy texture which makes it appealing to the touch.
Allergen-free and extremely durable
Particularly for families where one or more members suffer from pollen allergies, artificial grass allows enjoyment of the outdoors without the close proximity of a major source of allergens! Children who suffer from hayfever are often able to play on an artificial grass surface in a way they just can’t if they’re on natural grass. Artificial grass is incredibly hard-wearing, so the children can play kick-about on it for hours and it’s still in prime condition for grown-ups to entertain on.
Minimal maintenance and very hygienic
Obviously, artificial grass doesn’t require the same level of care as a natural lawn, but did you know it’s also much easier to keep clean? If necessary, artificial grass can be hosed down and even disinfected without impacting on its appearance. In contrast, a natural lawn is planted on soil and is very vulnerable to animal mess and other contaminants.
If you want an attractive stretch of lawn outside your home, that also offers a great surface for children and pets to enjoy, artificial grass could be exactly what you need. Competitively priced and offering great value, artificial grass is the go-to choice for many modern households.
