It’s official! The demand for fake grass has been on the rise in recent years, according to Dayco, artificial grass suppliers Hertfordshire.
One of the reasons for this recent surge in popularity is the better weather in the UK – with mild winters and long, hot summers – which has left real grass (previously lush, green lawns) riddled with unsightly dry patches.
And with the rise in temperatures across Britain, an increasing number of homeowners are choosing to spend more of their time outdoors…so creating a beautiful haven has been top of their list of priorities.
The UK Weather
2014 was confirmed by the Met Office as the hottest year on record, and was also the warmest year since the mid 1600s. It looks like higher temperatures are set to stay in the foreseeable future too as (to date) eight out of ten of the warmest years have all been since 2002.
While 2014 brought with it heaps of sunshine, it was also one of the UK’s wettest years since 1910. And, as five of the six wettest years have happened this century, it is a safe bet to expect quite a few rainy days ahead too.
What Homeowners Can Expect
The recent weather changes have created two problems for homeowners: while scorched grass has been a concern in good weather, heavy downpours can cause boggy lawns. This not only looks terrible, and puts you off using your lawn, but if you have a busy family home your children (and the adults) may well bring their wet, muddy shoes inside, causing a frustrating trail of dirt indoors.
How Dayco Artificial Grass Suppliers, Hertfordshire, Can Help
Aside from the weather, people are finding they simply don’t have enough time to maintain their lawn. After all, real grass needs mowing, watering, weeding, reseeding, and the edges trimmed.
And, if you are planning to take advantage of the warmer weather by spending more time in your garden: hosting barbecue parties, keeping an eye on the children, or simply just relaxing in the sunshine, having a year round immaculate lawn is one less thing to worry about.
Dayco artificial grass suppliers install some of the finest quality fake turf to homeowners, retailers, business owners, schools, councils, golf clubs, care homes and leisure centres in the Hertfordshire region.
Among the many benefits include:
- UV resistant turf, which means an end to unsightly brown patches on your lawn.
- It is chlorine resistant, so it can be used around swimming pools and hot tubs.
- It is self-draining (so no more wet, muddy patches).
- It requires no maintenance: just a simple hose down every now and again, and raking any leaves away, is all you need to do.
- It is tough enough to be used in places of heavy footfall (such as football grounds
