Go Green with Artificial Grass!

When it comes to making a garden look inviting, healthy and beautiful, there really is nothing that can beat a gorgeously-green lawn. Unfortunately, this fabulous feature entails a lot of investment in terms of both time and money, which can put a lot of homeowners off. 

An instant, lasting solution comes in the form of artificial grass, which continues to increase in popularity as a growing number of people discover just how many advantages it has over the real thing. With spring finally here and summer just around the corner, this edition of the Greengates Builders Merchant blog looks at some of the benefits of installing an artificial lawn to beautify your outdoor space.

Keeping a lawn in good condition requires the use of equipment like strimmers and lawnmowers, which are notoriously expensive to purchase. In addition to this initial cost, you also have to take into consideration the ever-growing price of the energy required to power them. Artificial grass of course needs no such maintenance and so the money saved can be spent on other things, while the time saved can be spent on simply enjoying your garden rather than working in it!

As the seasons change, so too does the appearance and quality of real grass. This can affect the aesthetic quality of your garden, especially during the autumn and winter months. Fake grass retains its attractive natural colour all year long, ensuring that the lawn always looks fantastic. 

As well as being appealing to the eye, a lawn is also a practical addition to a home that all members of the family should be able to enjoy. Real grass can affect this enjoyment in various ways, from staining clothing to causing attacks of hayfever; artificial grass creates none of these disadvantages.

One of the most surprising facts about artificial grass is that it is a more envi­ron­men­tally-friendly choice than the real thing! That's because, in addition to the aforementioned energy usage associated with lawn-maintenance tools like lawnmowers and strimmers, a real lawn requires excessive amounts of water to keep it healthy. Also, an artificial lawn does not need to be treated with harmful chemicals such as weedkiller and pesticides.
