Three Ways Winters are Made Easier with Artificial Turf
You know that feeling…the outdoor temperature has plummeted and last thing you want to do is go outside to mow the lawn. However, there is a solution to this…artificial turf, otherwise known as fake grass, which means your London lawn will stay in tip top shape even in the most treacherous of outdoor weather conditions. Here are some reasons why artificial grass is a great investment whatever the reading on the mercury scale:

No More Winter Maintenance Programmes – With winter approaching, gardeners with real grass have to think about how to maintain their lawn over winter to keep it in the best possible condition. Winter maintenance programmes start as early as September and some of the pick-me-ups that are traditionally done at this time of year include treating grass with a moss killer, aerating the lawn, and fertilising it. However, all this can be fairly time consuming, especially if you have a large lawn. As a result, more London homeowners are considering investing in artificial turf as this frees up valuable leisure time.
No Need to Mow, Even in Mild Winters – If you have a grassed lawn, November was likely to be the last cut this year. However, if the grass is still growing it still needs trimming even in winter, so most gardeners will raise the cut on their mower and mow the lawn every now and again to keep it in shape. However, it is important to avoid mowing when it’s wet or frosty as this could damage your lawn….and as the nights get darker earlier, this is usually something that has be done at weekends. With fake turf you don’t have to worry about finding the time to mow the lawn. Instead, your garden will look in excellent condition all year round, without lifting a finger!
No More Muddy Homes and Hallways – Children and pets love to play outside whatever the weather and frost, snow, wet or muddy grassed areas won’t act as a deterrent. A common complaint for people with real lawns is that they can get waterlogged at certain times of the year, which means time spent scrubbing muddy foot and paw prints off the hallway floors! Fake grass, however, is self-draining so it provides a much cleaner playing surface – and it’s dog friendly too, so your four legged friends will love it!
What You Can Do in Winter Instead…
As I’m sure you’ll agree, all this time saved maintaining real grass, or cleaning up muddy footprints in winter, can be better spent elsewhere. Artificial grass frees up time to take the children – and dog – for a long walk in the park, for you to cosy up in front of the fire with a good book, or invite friends and family round for lunch or dinner – where they are bound to compliment you on the superb condition of your lawn!
