Artificial grass is a popular alternative to regular turf and with the budget price of many ranges, it’s no wonder that more people are switching up their garden habits and installing artificial grass into their garden or outdoor space.
We all love gardening, there is something special about planting flowers and having your own vegetable patch that artificial alternatives don’t beat. However, when it comes to grass and turf in your garden, no one likes to have to consistently mow and trim their grass. In fact, statistics suggest that mowing grass is one of our least favourite tasks that households have to do during the summer months (because let’s get real, you don’t mow your lawn during the colder months!)
Today, we’re going to be chatting about the benefits of having artificial grass in your garden and reasons why you may want to consider purchasing your own and getting it installed as soon as you can. Trust us, when you have artificial grass in your outdoor space, you’ll never want to go back, it’s a true game-changer.
These benefits aren’t in any particular order, we have just listed some of the main reasons that people tend to switch over to ‘fake’ grass rather than having natural turf in their garden area.
- It’s Ideal for Pet Owners – No More Messy Floors
We all love our furry friends, but it’s not a good situation to be in when pets (especially dogs!) go out into our garden during the rain and come back in, bringing muddy and messy paws. While the certain types of flooring (such as polished wood and laminate) are easy to wipe up, it’s harder to clean carpets. Therefore, we would suggest artificial grass for your garden area. Imagine a life where your pet can go out into your garden and enjoy the rain (or sun) and come back into your home without bringing mess. With artificial grass, they can do this – no more messy floors!
- Less Maintenance
As we previously touched on above, artificial grass is a lot less maintenance that natural turf, which needs to be regularly mowed and trimmed. Plus, you don’t have to worry about discolouration or having to keep your garden looking healthy. In fact, some artificial grass companies offer a UV guarantee with certain ranges which means when you purchase artificial grass, they’re promising it won’t discolour! Grass Warehouse have a UV guarantee on a variety of their best-selling grasses such as Galileo, Hestia, and Lunar.
- Brightens Up Your Garden Area
Is there an area of your garden that hardly ever gets the sun? Perhaps your whole garden struggles to thrive? If so, artificial grass is an excellent way to brighten up any area of your garden and improve the aesthetics of your outdoor space. One of the biggest benefits of artificial grass is that you’re able to purchase a type that will suit your outdoor area, this includes different thickness. The thicker the grass is, the most plush underfoot feeling it will have when you’re out there using it.
We hope these benefits have allowed you to think about whether purchasing artificial grass is the right decision for you. You must consider all the aspects of switching to artificial turf but we’re pretty much convinced everyone should try it out at some point!
