Artificial Grass: Facts you didn’t know

Most of you will know that Consumer Grass are the West Midlands premier installers of Artificial Grass lawns – but what else do you know about Artificial Grass.
Artificial Grass isn’t new
Artificial Grass is often associated with modern, contemporary houses – this gives people the impression that it’s a new concept but this isn’t the case. Artificial grass was developed in the 1960s in America and has been used around the world ever since. Although it was originally used in a sports capacity, it has become more common in residential homes as time has gone on and will likely continue to be a go-to option for many homeowners over the next 50 years and beyond.

Artificial Grass isn’t as damaging to the environment as you might think  

Many people think that artificial grass is extremely bad for the environment because it is made of synthetic plastic fibres. Whilst it is made of plastic, it’s not quite as bad as it’s made out to be. The first thing to note is that, unlike a natural lawn, artificial grass doesn’t need to be watered. There are also no harmful pesticides and chemical weedkillers that need to be used, nor is there a need to use electric and petrol lawnmowers.

1 in 4 UK Gardens doesn’t have a grass lawn

The truth is many people don’t like to have a real lawn (muddy paws and feet) and want a space they can use year round. The facts are that 1 in 4 gardens are not real grass, they are artificial grass, gravel, paved or covered in decking

Artificial Grass doesn’t fade

Artificial Grass is now manufactured with UV inhibitors which means your artificial grass lawn will stay looking pristine for years to come no matter what the environment or your pets throw at it.
