Hints and tips on uses and some lesser known facts The market for artificial grass is growing quickly. Driven by a combination of better manufacturing techniques combined with an increasing awareness of the longer term environmental and economic benefits. Originally it was limited to large sports clubs but now you are just as likely to see it on your neighbour’s garden.
Our home space is at a premium, so it’s increasingly important to maximise all we have.
Our gardens are much overlooked, and as winter approaches, we tend to batten down the hatches; close the back door, and forget the garden until the spring. What a waste! Having the kids and pets tracking muddy feet through the house is no fun either, but instead of turning your garden into a concrete jungle why not consider artificial grass? There’s no downside. It’s clean; pet and kid friendly, and great for the environment. In high ‘wear and tear’ areas, you may end up with sections of garden where consistent use won’t allow grass to grow properly. You may find bald patches that if turned into mud, may also cause problems. Carefully laid artificial grass blends in with surrounding features and addresses these problems.
“Urban flooding”, is the new buzz word in garden planning, basically it means we need to plan smarter as too much hard surface construction means there is a smaller area for the surface water to soak into so it tends to “flow” into the rivers and drains more quickly. Poor quality artificial grass, concreted area’s & patio’s could increase the problem, however what not everyone realises is that good quality artificial grass is permeable. Basically there are rows of holes in the backing to allow the water to flow through allowing the surface water to soak away just like real grass.
