West Midlands homeowners making their homes into their castles during lockdown

Over the past 3 months our Design Team at Consumer Grass have been busier than ever as homeowner right across the West Midlands reject traditional lawns and invest in artificial grass for their gardens.

The terms ‘artificial grass’ and ‘artificial lawns have tripled in search volume according to Google Trends, but why? 


Companies right across the home improvement market have seen surges in website visitors since the start of lockdown in March, from Kitchen and Interior designers through to CCTV companies. More time at home means more time to spend search the web. A new Aviva study believes that 85% of UK residents have undertaken home improvement activities during the lockdown period, with the likes of discount retailer B&M reporting a near 23% jump in gardening products in the first 8 weeks of lockdown.

With so many ‘stuck’ at home it makes sense that many have looked at ways to keep their gardens in perfect condition year round; and so many homeowners across the West Midlands have chosen Artificial Grass – a hassle free option compared to traditional lawns. Artificial lawns no longer look like the astroturf sports fields of the 80’s and can create a perfect illusion of a real lawn due the varied heights, thickness and shades of the yarn. 

Artificial grass is resilient to heavy use from children and pets with little need for maintenance, allowing families more time to enjoy their garden, or even ’stay-cation”. Consumer Grass Managing Director, Adam Hughes, said, “People have contacted us to look at gardens of all sizes and shapes; they are looking for a great looking garden with minimum maintenance required.” He added, We have completed installations and garden transformations right across the West Midlands, from Rugby to Telford and Worcester to Leicester.”

“It has been great over the past few months for our installation team to be able to make many of our customers lives better by transforming their gardens. We put in place strict Covid-19 guidelines putting our staff, and customers and their families safety first,” added Adam.
