For the majority of homeowners, the appearance and aesthetics of their home and garden is a matter of pride. Standing out from the crowd is becoming increasingly important, especially in today's flat-pack world, where houses vary little unless built privately by the future homeowner. So, when it comes to their gardens, many homeowners are looking to artificial grass to create the unique appearance they want for their home.
First impressions count for a lot; it has been said that we make a snap judgement on whether we like someone or something within the first few seconds. If a passerby were to look at your home, would they like what they see? Would they feel envious, impressed or inspired? Chances are, with a fake lawn looking pristine and well-kept all year round, your garden and home will look picture-perfect whatever the weather.
Here at the Artificial Lawn Company, we provide artificial grass to homes like yours (and businesses, too!) across the Home Counties and South of England. So, if you're looking for a garden makeover in Greater London, Kent, Essex, Surrey and beyond, then you're in the right place.
The Benefits - Explained
Artificial grass has seen a huge uptake in recent years, becoming more popular both in the home and out. When you consider how low-maintenance and cost-effective the use of fake grass is, it’s not difficult to see why. Not only safe for use around pets and children, artificial grass makes your garden available for use all year round. Who doesn’t like to look out over a lush, green lawn?
No longer will you have to deal with muddy footprints traipsed through your home, destroying the carpet in the process. Gone is the need to waste your already-stretched free time weeding, mowing the lawn or trying to figure out why that bald patch in the middle of the garden won't grow back. An artificial lawn will save you both time and money by removing the need to water the lawn, fertilise or sow seeds.
During the warmer summer months, your water bill will be reduced drastically without impacting the aesthetic of your home and garden. Hosepipe ban? No problem! Similarly, you won't need to spend either time or money dealing with pesticides and harmful chemicals in order to keep your garden looking good.
Playtime will happen, whatever the weather. The weather here in the UK is a major point of contention for many, but we are sure you will all agree that a mud and insect-free lawn can only be a good thing when the children want to play in the rain.
Pets won't be constantly trying to dig up your garden thanks to the materials used to make a fake lawn. They will happily laze around, allowing you both to enjoy the great outdoors without the worry of having to replant your lawn seed because the dog got a little overexcited. Not to mention, no more yellow spots from your pet toileting on the grass!
With fake grass at the helm, your garden will be the envy of all the neighbours.
How it Works: Artificial Grass for Dogs
Speaking of canines, artificial grass for dogs is the perfect way to let your pets have free reign in the garden, without the constant worry of your perfectly-cultivated garden being destroyed.
The fibres that are used in your fake lawn are soft yet durable in texture and are much more enjoyable for pets like dogs and cats to play on. Furthermore, they will have more time to enjoy the garden thanks to the low maintenance and easy upkeep requirements.
When it's rainy, your pets can still go about their daily garden investigations without bringing in muddy pawprints. When it's sunny, they can lounge about on the lawn; it will be warm and cosy to touch making it the perfect place for a cat-nap or snooze.
There will no longer be worn patches of grass making your garden look a little worse for wear, and nor will there be any yellowing patches from where your dogs like to mark their territory. Speaking of which, fake grass is permeable, which means that liquids - including urine - will drain into the ground below meaning odours won't taint your garden.
Similarly, artificial grass for dogs is easily cleaned. Should your pooch decide to go about his business, it will look as good as new in no time at all. Just rinse it down with your garden hose or use a household disinfectant.
How it Works: Artificial Grass with Children
When it comes to children, the little ones enjoy being outside in the garden as much as a pet would. No matter what their age, the appeal of the garden is hard to beat. Whether it's for a birthday party, a garden camping trip, enjoying the weather, or playing alone, with friends or with the dog, the garden is a haven for all children.
Artificial grass makes life much easier when you have children. Wave goodbye to grass-stained school uniform, muddy shoes and general dirt. Of course, they will always find a way, but it won't be from the garden!
Fake grass lawns offer higher durability when compared to the standard grass lawn, which makes it a perfect playtime surface for active children without risk of divots and thinning patches. No more having to reseed your lawn year after year, as your artificial lawn only requires an occasional brush with a stiff broom and a regular sweep to remove leaf litter and other garden debris. With this small amount of upkeep, it’s easy to keep your artificial turf looking great all year round.
With the long-term in mind, we have different ranges of fake grass available, depending on your needs. For example, if your children like to stay active playing sports like football, tennis or baseball, then we have lawns that are perfect for use in sports. Dad can even play golf comfortably on this grass!
The Multi-Purpose Lawn
Not just for gardens, artificial grass is being used around the home, on balconies, for roof terraces and the list is neverending depending on how creative you are! In addition to domestic uses, businesses have been using fake grass in trade exhibitions, break-out rooms and meeting spaces. Not only does the use of artificial turf create a striking, attractive look, but it also helps to create a tranquil feel in otherwise busy environments.
Furthermore, the use of artificial grass has become popular for use in playrooms and children’s bedrooms and has even been used as rugs and welcome mats as a transition between indoors and outside. The soft, natural feel makes it safe against bumps and burns and the flexibility makes it versatile enough for craft use, too!
Feeling inspired? We’ve seen artificial grass used to cover outdoor furniture, cars and bikes, even used to dress up walls! What would you use your artificial turf for?
