When it comes to the maintenance of our home, we all want to make life easier for ourselves. It’s nice to be able to stop and rest from time to time after all. With that in mind, you might want to consider installing artificial grass in your garden, as it doesn’t need to be mowed, weeded, fertilised or watered. Instead you can just sit back and enjoy your garden during summer. This is great if you plan to travel a lot during the summer, because you won’t be able to take care of your lawn while you’re away.
Believe it or not, there are actually tons of other benefits to installing artificial grass in your garden. It’s not just the limited maintenance! According to the MET office, as many as 1 in 5 people suffer from hay fever and 95% of sufferers are allergic to grass pollen. Of course, a fake lawn can’t cure hay fever. But it can certainly reduce your exposure to grass pollen. That means, if anyone in your family suffers from hay fever, you’ll be less likely to experience the symptoms with an artificial lawn.
If you have dogs or children, artificial grass is a fantastic choice. It means that you won’t have any little muddy footprints trodden through your home when it’s a little damp outside. You also won’t have to use any pesticides or herbicides on the lawn, which can be harmful as they filter through the soil and drain into the waterways.
Essentially, artificial grass will allow you to trade in your mower and hose pipe for a BBQ and some nice furniture, allowing you to enjoy your garden, relax and save money on your water bills.
