Artificial Lawns – The Lifestyle Choice for 2015
Are you a house hunter or homeowner who loves the idea of having a garden but are put off by all the maintenance it entails? Householders with busy work and social lives often feel that they have to compromise on buying a property with a good-sized lawn, opting for a house with a courtyard garden, or a flat instead.
So, what’s the solution?
If you are buying a new home, or renovating an old one, an artificial lawn gives you the best of both worlds: a beautiful garden to enjoy all year round, without all the upkeep. Here are ten reasons why the popularity of artificial lawns in London is set to rise and why it’s the lifestyle choice for 2015.

Frees Up Leisure Time – High quality artificial lawns last at least 15 years, and just need the odd rake every now and again to clear leaves, or hose down to clear mud or pet droppings. This is all the time you need to spend on your lawn, which gives you all the joy of a garden, without the hard work.
Looks Good All Year – Whether it’s in mid-summer or the depths of winter, your imitation grass will stay in tip-top shape all year round without the worry of grass fading in the hot sun, wearing thin with heavy footfall, or weeds growing. If the grass is in a shady area it may attract moss, but this is easily rectified with moss killer.
Gives You More Time for Entertaining – If you want a lawn fit for entertaining but don’t want all the hassle of maintenance – or the expense of employing a gardener – think about installing fake turf. This will give you more time to spend on all the details to make you the perfect host, such as laying the tables for al fresco dining.
No More Muddy Footprints – The UK weather is unpredictable and if you are running a busy household – with children and pets – clearing up the mess made by muddy feet and paws can be a headache. Fake turf is self-draining and mud free, as it is installed over a sub base of granite chippings with a geotextile membrane, so no more cleaning up mud brought in from outside.
Versatile for Any Home – If your London home has an unsightly, concreted outdoor space, this can soon be made into a tranquil haven with the installation of artificial turf. Imitation grass is extremely versatile and can be installed on most surfaces including roof gardens and balconies.
A Chance to Be Creative – As you don’t have to maintain an imitation lawn, you can be as creative as you like with its design. So whether you have just moved into a new home, or are updating an old one, you will have an aesthetically appealing garden that stays in shape, without having to lift a finger.
Perfect Grassed Area – Dayco artificial lawns are such high quality, they look just like the real thing – no one will know the difference! And, it feels wonderfully soft underfoot too so you can enjoy picnics on the grass without even needing a ground sheet.
It Wards off Birds – Gardens in city centres can attract pigeons and other feathered friends who may leave an unsightly mess in their wake. Fake lawns, however, are not so appealing to birds as they can’t swoop onto your lawn to peck at insects and worms. So it’s stress free!
Fits All Shapes of Lawns – Not all gardens are flat, or are a perfect square or rectangular shape. Some lawns have a steep slope, which is hard to mow, and others are in an odd shape, such as triangular shaped gardens. Dayco imitation turf provides the answer as it is expertly installed to fit all shapes and sizes of lawn.
Great for Sporty Families – If you have children who spend a lot of time outdoors – playing football or other sports and games – your lawn can soon develop unsightly worn patches. Fake turf is extremely durable, however, so it can withstand heavy footfall and your lawn stays even all year round! Yet another reason why artificial lawns are the lifestyle choice for 2015!
