Artificial Grass first become available in sports arenas around the country, Luton Town FC famously used an artificial grass pitch, installed in 1985 and finally replaced in 1991. Fake grass has since had a major resurgence and is now available for the domestic market.
Artificial grass has a host of advantages to your regular consumer:
- Maintenance Friendly
Artificial, or fake lawns are pretty much maintenance-free. Whereas in summertime natural turf needs looking after almost every day, you can spend time on other activities instead of having to tend your lawn.
Synthetic grass and lawns look and feel just like, if not better than well maintained natural grass all year round, even in the harshest of our British weather.
- Save Water and Money
Installing a synthetic lawn eliminates the use of harmful pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides and fungicides. At the same time fake turf requires no mowing, fertilizing, reseeding or watering.
- The Environment
Artificial turf installations have helped save millions of gallons of water. In addition to this, operating a petrol lawn mower for one hour gives out same amount of pollutants as driving a car for 60 miles. Every single year, millions of kilos of chemicals are used by homeowners in the upkeep of natural grass lawns.
