Whether you are a pub or restaurant looking at inventive ways of increasing capacity whilst adhering to social distancing restrictions or simply thinking of reinventing your private outdoor space, an artificial lawn can help do just that.
Meeting with friends and family in an appealing outside environment has all of the makings of a great social event which, when complemented with a fine dining experience, is about as close to perfect as you can hope for.
In these current strange circumstances that we find ourselves living in, artificial grass for pubs and restaurants is an investment that improves the outdoor dining experience for guests. By making the setting feel more like an extension of the venue, as opposed to simply being shafted outside, the overall experience is a much more positive one.
In 2020, restaurants and pubs have been forced to become inventive with their space and their business model. Pre-lockdown, it would be almost inconceivable for many pubs to offer a takeaway service, as well as not being allowed to pack in keen punters on Friday and Saturday nights, alongside serving a hearty Sunday lunch at the weekend. Now, this feels almost commonplace and as pubs and restaurants have been reopened for a little while; we are starting to become more accustomed to the so-called 'new normal'.
Opening up outdoor areas, effectively extending the venue, is one of the ways that the hospitality sector has been able to navigate its way through the age of social distancing until the time comes when they can cater to full capacity. Until then, the need exists to do what is possible to make the business viable and by extension, provide an attractive experience for customers who, likewise, are desperate to get back to some kind of normality.
Long before social distancing came in, homeowners have been making use of artificial lawns in their outdoor space and with good reason. For one, you don’t need to worry about mowing it every other weekend in the summer, which soon becomes a drag when you would much rather be utilising your weekends to relax and unwind. You don’t want to have to spend an hour walking up and down the garden cutting a lawn that, in the colder months, isn’t going to hold up anyway.
Unlike real grass, which becomes muddy and a no-go area during the winter months, artificial grass remains just as welcoming, just as lusciously green and just as high quality as it is in the summer. That means that you can make use of it all year round, so if you wanted to go out into the garden in the autumn and winter you need not worry about trampling mud through the house.
What many homeowners decide to do is to create an outdoor space they can use to host guests, even during the colder months. This can be done by installing a cover, such as a gazebo or an awning, along with a heat source that can safely sit in your garden. Although, please do not place any garden/patio heaters on artificial grass as the increased temperatures can damage the synthetic surface.
With a cover that keeps you and your guests protected from the conditions and a heat source that, even in the cold depths of winter, will ensure your party remains warm. That means that you can wine and dine outside, or just simply enjoy each other’s company long into the evening. Alternatively, you can make this your own personal safe haven – it’s your home and you can do whatever you want with it!
Why Artificial Lawn Improves the Outside Dining Experience
When we think of the great outdoors and nature, we immediately think of blue skies and green grass. While we can’t always guarantee clear blue skies, especially in the United Kingdom, what we can do is guarantee your grass will always be green. Picnics, beer gardens and outdoor events are all best when accompanied with beautiful grass that looks and feels just as nature originally intended.
To avoid muddy floors, home and venues sometimes opt for hard flooring such as concrete patios on which to create an outdoor seating area. However, we believe that while there is always space for patio in a garden, it is a shame if there is no grass at all. Imagine sitting down for a picnic on brick or drinking in a beer garden made exclusively of paving slabs. It just wouldn’t be the same experience, would it?
At Artificial Lawn Company, we are proud to offer a wide range of fake grass lawns that mean you can enjoy the realistic touch and feel of grass on your feet without any fear of mess or deterioration. It also means that you are free to lay out your seating arrangements on the lawn and not worry about yellow patches forming from where sunlight has been obstructed or needing to move the equipment every time you mow the lawn.
