The Advantages of Artificial Grass
A lawn adds both practical and aesthetic value to a garden but also involves a lot of work to keep it in tip-top condition. More and more people are discovering the benefits of artificial grass, which allows you to have a gorgeous lawn all year round without any of the hard work. Here at Greengate's, your local builders merchant, we have an extensive selection of artificial grass and this edition of our blog showcases some of the many advantages it provides.
To keep a lawn looking great, it needs lots of attention like watering, feeding, mowing and trimming. Artificial grass puts an end to all of these requirements at a stroke. This frees up lots of time which can be much better spent just enjoying your garden, rather than working to keep it looking good!
Lawnmowers, strimmers and other lawn-maintenance tools are expensive to buy, not to mention the cost of powering them. Installing artificial grass, as well as negating the need for buying and powering such equipment, saves you money and can even add to your property's financial value.
Artificial grass is both safe and strong. This means that it is especially suitable for households where there are children and/or pets, who can use the lawn as much as they wish without any danger. The grass will continue to offer optimal performance.
The visual appearance of real grass changes through the seasons whereas artificial grass retains its beautiful colour all year round. You can choose exactly the shade you want from our selection.
Most people are surprised to learn that fake grass is actually kinder to the environment than real grass! This is due to the fact that real grass needs a huge amount of water to keep it in good condition, especially during the summer months. In addition, there is no need to use harsh chemicals like weedkillers and pesticides with artificial grass.
Our collection of artificial grass includes the most popular varieties such as Lido and Quest. For more information about the artificial grass options available at Greengate's or to place an order, please get in touch with our dedicated customer service team.
