Due to significant advancements in manufacturing techniques and growing awareness of the long-term environmental benefits that artificial grass may provide, it is rapidly gaining popularity and is being viewed as a viable alternative to natural grass. Traditionally, Artificial Grass or Astro Turf was reserved for sports and recreation facilities. However, with its increasingly realistic feel and appearance, it is becoming so popular with the general public that you are just as likely to see it laid in your neighbor's garden.

Artificial Grass benefits fall into three distinct categories:

The first advantage is the changes it can bring to your lifestyle and how simple it is to maintain. Mowing your grass is one of the less glamorous tasks we perform on a regular basis throughout the summer months, and it can take up to three hours of your time, depending on the size of your yard. In today's world, it appears as though we are all living at a hundred miles per hour and our personal relaxation time has become a valuable commodity as we attempt to juggle our daily responsibilities, so you have to ask yourself, do you really want to spend this time mowing and caring for your lawn?

We've compiled a list of just a few of the benefits of installing artificial grass below:

1. Once installed, artificial grass requires minimal maintenance, which frees up the time you would have spent mowing your lawn during the summer months, allowing you to spend your time doing something more productive and enjoyable.

2. Artificial grass is ideal for older adults who are unable to maintain their gardens physically and must instead rely on family and friends or pay a professional gardening company to do so. The beauty of artificial grass is that once installed, it requires little time and effort to maintain. It has also become a popular choice for holiday home owners who visit their properties on a limited basis, typically at the conclusion of the holiday season, and thus lack the time or resources to properly care for their lawns, necessitating the hiring of a professional business to do it in their absence.

Artificial Grass's Environmental Benefits

In recent years, the UK has experienced greater limitations on water usage through the implementation of hose pipe bans. This is detrimental to natural grass. A natural grass that is not watered during hot weather can become irreversibly damaged in a matter of days; this is one concern that artificial lawns eliminate. That is, planting artificial grass actively benefits the environment by significantly reducing water consumption per household.

We've included a few additional environmental benefits of artificial grass below:

●  There is no need for fertilisers; • There are no carbon emissions associated with the usage of fuel lawn mowers and strimmers.

● Artificial grass is an excellent surface for dog or pet runs since it is extremely easy to keep clean and sanitary, making it a favorite among dog kennel owners.

● It is an ideal substitute for real grass around swimming pools because it eliminates muddy areas where dust and grime can be tracked into the pool by filthy feet. 

● Artificial  grass remains green and attractive regardless of the weather conditions. 

● Additionally, it is ideal for high-traffic sections of your garden, such as children's swings or slides, where it can be carefully laid to fit in with surrounding features and prevent muddy spots, keeping your garden looking wonderful throughout the summer months. 

● The grass can be utilized for roof gardens in houses when the roof is incapable of supporting the weight of natural turf. 

● Artificial Grass eliminates the weight issue and the effort associated with cutting it.
