Save Money on Gardening with Artificial Grass

Spring; the season most commonly associated with cleaning your home. Whether you’re deep cleaning your bathroom with Mrs Hinch’s latest tips or going for a full make-over of the living room. Spring tends to send us all home-crazy. However, there’s one area of the home which often gets overlooked - the garden.

We all love the leisurely side to our gardens but when it comes to sparing time and money on maintenance, we’re not so keen. Often neglected, the garden tends to be thought of as the least important area of the home. However, as the first impression for our guests are we missing a trick here? Do we really want to greet our guests with weeds and overgrown grass?

We hear a resounding no - so how can you save money on doing it up?


Introducing Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is a cheaper alternative to the reoccurring costs of a natural lawn. Sure it comes with an initial pullout which the critics may argue is considerably more than a packet of grass seeds but once it’s down, it down to last and instantly looks fantastic. Besides, creating the perfect natural lawn isn’t as easy as spreading grass seeds and hoping for the best. It takes time, money and a whole lot of maintenance. Take a peek at this beautiful install of our Madrid Range, to see how quick and easy it is for artificial grass to transform your garden:

Garden Maintenance

Saving money is the top of everyone’s agenda and we all know too well the little spends sharp add up. Ever popped to the supermarket for a pint of milk and come out £50 down? It’s no different when it comes to maintaining a lawn. What may seem a trivial cost, sharp escalates! The average lawnmower costs around £100, then you also need to consider the following gardening tools:

  • Strimmer
  • Rake
  • Hand aerator
  • Hand weeder
  • Lawn spade
  • Trimmer
  • Lawn shears
  • Lawn scissors
  • Hose
  • Sprinkler.

Not to mention ongoing costs of:

  • Blade replacements
  • Electricity
  • Re-seeding
  • Water rates.


The list is quite exhaustive and you also need to consider time spent on maintenance - as the old saying goes, time is also money. The upkeep of a natural lawn means repetitive meowing, weeding and fertilising which we all know can be physically demanding as well as time-consuming.

Often put on the backburner, your home's appearance does not need to suffer to the strenuous demands of gardening. Paying a professional is always an option but that comes with yet another price tag. Artificial grass provides a perfect, natural looking, lawn all year round whilst eliminating the need for excessive groundwork.
