Gardening is like marmite you either love it or you hate it. A glimpse of sunshine and green-fingered gardeners don the gardening gloves and dive straight into the epiphany of chores which accompany a perfect garden. For the rest of us, there are much better ways of spending a sunny afternoon like racing to the beach for a fun family day out – The garden can wait, right?
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.
Autumn is well and truly here; the trees are shedding their leaves and the woolly jumpers are brought to the front of the wardrobe. Thoughts turn to home maintenance as we get ready for cosy nights in and the countdown to the festive season – yes we’re mentioning it already! But what about your garden?
Often forgotten about, maintaining your garden in Autumn is just as important as sprucing up the living room, lounge or kitchen. Whilst artificial grass requires little upkeep, your garden is the first impression for your guests so here are our top tips to keep it looking immaculate:
Mould and moss aren’t exactly this seasons must have garden accessories, however, the change in weather conditions sets the perfect temperature for these little garden demons to thrive. As the lovely trees shed their leaves, dampness is trapped under the layers. Mix this with the perfect amount of shade needed for moss and mould to grow and hey presto – we have an issue.
It can grow almost anywhere too, including on your artificial grass. Yes, whilst rare, artificial grass can house moss and mould. The airborne spores cling to the grass strands and multiply if not treated.
