As artificial grass installation in Solihull as with other parts of the West Midlands becomes more common place, we are often asked by customers “What is better? Real Grass or Fake Grass?’. It often creates quite a heated debate with both sides having very firm opinions when it comes to the best option. There will be many who are so entrenched in their beliefs that no reasoned argument will sway them, but most people are simply looking for the best solution which suits their garden and their needs.
Artificial turf has been with us for 50 years, but the new Artificial Grass options available bear no resemblance to the older style turfs. This dramatic progress in quality, durability and style has added gravitas to the discussion as to what is better “fake verses real”. At Consumer Grass, although we started as Artificial Grass suppliers and installers, as we now offer a full garden design and landscaping service, we simply want the best option which meets your needs.
Artificial Grass ISN’T bad for the environment
One longstanding argument has always been that fake grass/artificial turf/artificial grass is bad for the environment. This is simply no longer the case, in fact many gardeners need to use products to keep their ’natural’ grass in tip=top shape contain ingredients that are causing damage to wildlife and the environment. Artificial grass doesn’t require the use of lawnmowers, which can help to reduce carbon emissions, there is no need to use water to keep it looking lush and artificial grass isn’t damaging to wildlife, so this is no longer an argument that natural grass enthusiasts can call on.
When it comes to artificial grass, the same arguments remain true and relevant, it is just that it is now backed up by better looking artificial grass! This style of grass can stand up to all manner of weather conditions, which when you consider the weather over the winter and early spring in Solihull and the rest of the UK, has to be seen as a positive thing. There is also the fact that natural grass needs a lot of love and attention to care for it, and in the modern era, who has the time to care for their garden? You could hire a gardener but this is then incurring cost that you could use in other ways.
Its Up To You ! !
For many people, the real difference comes in how the turf looks and with modern artificial grass, it can be very difficult to tell the difference. If you are willing to invest in good quality artificial grass, you will get a positive return on your money that will convince most people and certainly please the vast majority of people that use.
When it comes to deciding between natural or artificial grass, it is up to the individual to decide. Your budget, your amount of spare time and how important “natural” is to you will all impact on your choice but remember, with artificial grass now looking as appealing as natural grass in many situations, you can have the brilliance of natural looking grass without the time, work and effort required to obtain a stunning lawn.
