Artificial grass is growing in popularity and is now a real alternative to natural grass in many garden and interior locations. So why are people installing artificial grass?
Verde Artificial Grass and Urban10 Witchgrass are extremely durable and require little maintenance, their lush appearance forms an attractive surface for all the family to use.
Low Maintenance And Stain Free
The lawn mower can be safely put away, as no longer will routine grass cutting, edging and fertilizing infringe on your weekend. Once laid, artificial grass requires minimal maintenance, just sweep off any debris now and again. Hot water and household detergent will remove all but the most stubborn stains.
Easy To Install
Absolutely, just ensure that the base is compact, solid, level and free draining. Artificial grass can even be laid on existing grass as long as it's flat and free draining, but it is preferable to remove existing turf.
Realistic, Long Lasting And UV Stabilized
Artificial grass is similar to natural grass when walked on and can be mistaken for real grass. Lifespan is estimated at between 10 - 15 years and if used on the patio it will be slightly less. The grass is also resistant to UV light, so any colour fading is negligible.
Ideal for children to play on all day. Read how new mom Michelle created a play area for her daughter and friends. They can now enjoy the swings, slide and Wendy house at any time for as long as they like, there are no worries about the grass wearing out or flattening.
Cut To Any Shape
For odd shaped areas, all you need is a sharp knife and straight edge, if done properly fraying should be minimal.
Artificial grass can be laid on wooden decking, gravel, concrete etc, even your roof, using all-weather adhesive or tacks.
All Year Use
When rain reduces your neighbour's garden to a muddy damp patch or is covered in frost or snow, you'll be glad that your table and chairs, practice putting surface or children's play equipment are located on pristine artificial grass. Provided the base is free draining, it will not become waterlogged.
Suitable for most indoor and outdoor activities, there are various types and colours for different applications such as patios, balconies, swimming pool surrounds, high traffic areas, sports etc. Barbecues won't set fire to it, and cars can drive over it.
