Keeping up appearances in a busy family home can be a tricky job. Especially if you’re living next door to Hyacinth Bucket - queen of the immaculate garden! With one too many dandelions to continue to ignore and no time spare in the schedule for gardening, you may want to consider artificial grass.

Low maintenance, no watering, all-weather and child & pet-friendly - artificial grass requires minimal effort to keep it looking perfect. Sound like your ideal solution? Read on to discover the top 5 benefits artificial grass can bring to your family home.


1. Time Better Spent with Family


Completing the daily tasks can be quite the challenge. Juggling the laundry, wrestling with the hoover and cooking the tea are only a spec in the abundance of household chores we tend to. When it comes to the garden, it rarely gets a look in! Artificial grass eliminates the need to mow, weed or hose. Giving you more family time to play in the garden with the kids.


Robust enough to withstand the pressures of a family football match, a thicker pile provides a soft landing for those inevitable falls and goal slides. Muddy footprints and grass-stained clothes are one less thing to worry too about as artificial grass is fitted over a sand sub base, banishing the mud!


More time can be spent in the garden as a super-efficient drainage system speeds up the drying process, allowing you to get outdoors quicker and more often.

2. Save Money


When the budget is tight, the last thing you want to do is waste money on maintaining a lawn. Small spends on seeds, chemical enhancers, weed killers and gardening tools sharp add up. Not to mention the bigger costs of lawn mowers and water rates. One of the great advantages of artificial grass is that there are no ongoing costs to consider. Once the grass is down, grab your sun lounger and enjoy the summer on your immaculately preserved lawn. The only upkeep you may require is a simple brush down with a household broom to restore the blades. You can also save on fitting costs with a self-install.
