Artificial Grass with real benefits
Many people are initially inclined to scoff at the idea of using artificial or synthetic grass in the garden. But closer examination of the circumstances can reveal some very significant benefits. Firstly a synthetic lawn is weatherproof, making it ideal for use in all areas throughout the year. This means there is always somewhere safe and clean for children and/or family pets to play without any fear of muddy feet or paws. This is a major plus especially for gardens which are small, poorly drained or shaded. Synthetic lawns apart from an occasional sweep, require no maintenance, so no more mowing, grass cuttings etc. Synthetic lawns are available in a range of grades with a specific quality to suit any individual requirement, from lush ornamental to hard wearing play/pet surfaces. The better quality products are also sunproof, ie, no fade, excellent drainage and expect a minimum 10-15 year lifespan or more. It is however very important that good preparation is done, so insist on a minimum of 100mm compacted Hardcore and a 50mm of compacted Sand/Grit blinding, this ensures a stable, firm and level surface. Once completed, the synthetic Grass/Lawn should be securely fixed and is ready for use.
