Benefits of Artificial Grass | Should you switch?
Artificial grass, sometimes called synthetic turf, is an excellent landscaping choice for many hard-to-grow areas or where water drainage is limited. Artificial turf is a man-created material of fibres produced to resemble natural turf grasses. We spoke to Landscape Gardeners Coventry to help write this post and we thank them for their time.
Most people are familiar with artificial turf that is commonly used in sports stadiums. The difference is that artificial turf is synthetic and has no grass in it. Artificial turf is also made with materials that simulate the look of natural turf grass. However, synthetic turf is not actually grass; it is composed of synthetic fibres that resemble grass. In the past, artificial grass used to be made out of wood but now they are made out of polyethylene fibres.
The cost of installing artificial turf can vary widely depending on several factors. The material used, the number of individual blades that will be used, the length of time it will take to make and install the turf, and the cost of maintenance of the lawn are just some of the things that should be considered when deciding upon a turf replacement. It should also be noted that there are several types of artificial turf available to choose from, and different prices will be attached to each type of artificial turf. One company may have turf with more blades and another one with less blades and so on. Therefore, it is important to think carefully about what you want, the budget, and the location of the turf before making the decision to install it.
Although artificial grass options are now available all popular DIY stores such as B&Q, Homebase etc., it’s recommended you speak with a professional landscaper who has experience of the different choices available to suit your needs. Buying the wrong type of grass will be a costly mistake.
Artificial turf is exceptionally durable, and it does not require the use of chemicals or fertilisers that are needed for grass to thrive. This is one of the reasons that it is so popular.
Artificial turf is also extremely easy to maintain. The only thing you need to do is to keep it clean and water it occasionally to prevent any mildew from forming. No matter what type of turf you have installed, you should not have to worry about weeds growing in because synthetic turf does not have roots.
If you have pets, especially dogs then artificial turf is tempting as you’ll no longer have unsightly brown patches on your lawn, caused by urine or wear and tear. The maintenance advantage of having an artificial lawn is often the driver why homeowners switch to having it. No longer will you need a lawn mower or have to apply grass treatments year round, all saving both time and money.
So now you know more about artificial turf, is it something you’ll be tempted into having for your home? Let us know.
How to look after your lawn
Maintaining your lawn is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that it will remain beautiful for years to come. Many of us busy with work and home stuff to think, but there are some simple things that you can do to help make sure that you are always able to take care of your lawn.
The first thing you need to remember is that your lawn needs to be fertilised. This is a quite simple thing, but many people forget about it, or they find it difficult to find the right type of fertiliser for their lawn. Your lawn needs a lot of nitrogen, but you also need to consider things like potassium as well as calcium in order to ensure that the nutrients that you put into your lawn will have the correct effect. There are many fertilisers out there that are suitable for different types of lawn so you should always be able to find the one that is perfect for your lawn.
In addition to this, you should check on a regular basis to make sure that you are watering the area properly. You should water your lawn daily, but only that it remains damp. If you do not water your lawn properly it will become very dry and this can lead to the growth of weed seeds and fungus which are both harmful to the lawn. Also, it can lead to the soil becoming too hard and will cause damage to the roots of your grass. You want to avoid a lawn that is excessively dry, and brittle so keep an eye out for these things.
It is also important to remember that when it comes to mowing, you want to be using a mower that is appropriate for your lawn, and you also want to use one that is as gentle on your grass as possible. You don’t want to cut your grass too short because the grass will become stressed.
You should also keep an eye out for damage to your grass if you are going to be mowing it often. Some grass can lose its colour after being mowed, or it can start to wilt, and this will affect the appearance of your lawn.
You should water your lawn at different times, such as during the day and at night. It is also important to water deep in between the blades of the grass so that you get to all the leaves and roots of the grass.
One good thing about mowing your lawn is that it is quite easy to manage. You don’t have to spend hours a day on it to maintain it. It is also extremely easy to do when it comes to doing it yourself, as you can set a timer for the watering so you can go about your business.…
