You can still enjoy your Summer in Winter

Winter time is a time when people are vigilant and try to protect their garden plants from cold weather. When it rains, the issue of mud crops up, and frost and snow can wreak havoc to the neatest manicured lawn ever. Well, with artificial grass, you do not have to worry about these seasonal changes. There is no need to be “always vigilant” when the cold season comes. Here are some of the reasons why you can still enjoy summer during winter months.

Artificial grass is smart all year round

The Children love to go out and play in the snow, or kick a ball around when the sun comes out after a rainy spell. The running around on the lawn creates muddy patches which are unsightly. With Artificial grass, you do not have to worry about muddy ugly patches. The grass looks great no matter the season. Come rain or sunshine, you will still have a beautiful lawn during winter months.


Natural grass can be very slippery after it rains, not to mention the added slipperiness of the mud below. This can lead to nasty slips and falls for your young ones when they venture outside; it will also pose a risk to adults. Artificial grass is slip resistant and protects from slips. Today’s variations allow for some padding to be pout below the surface, thereby creating a cushion that is not only comfortable to walk upon, but also safe in case of falls.

Low maintenance

Natural grass can be unruly during the winter months. It tends to grow at a higher rate than during summer. This means more mowing, cutting and edging for your lawn. This extra work can be done away with when you have Synthetic grass. It takes away the need to go outside to manicure your lawn when you probably would like to curl up in front of the warm fireplace and watch some movies.

Do away with mud

You may have pets which will go out onto the lawn no matter what the weather looks like. This means a muddy lawn and muddy paw prints on your floors and carpets when the pet comes in from the rain. Similarly, young children may leave muddy boot prints on your floor. When you install Synthetic grass, you do away with mud for good. Once the children and pets go out, they do not collect any mud; no more muddy prints in your home.

No dead spots

Natural grass will wither and brown out during winter. Of course not all varieties do this, bit most do. This means that come spring, there will be dead spots all over your lawn, as the grass tries to grow back again. With Artificial grass, this is not the case. Since your lawn will remain green all through the year, no matter the season.

Artificial grass is the best way to maintain a lush green lawn, whether it is spring pr winter. Call us now and we shall give you a portfolio of the lovely synthetic grass lawns that we have installed for previous customers.

Fake grass that is better than natural grass when it comes to aesthetics

There has been a marked increase in the number of people who are replacing their natural grass lawns with artificial grass. These new lawns look great and require very little or no maintenance at all. There has been a hue and cry from proponents of natural grass, with some claiming that artificial grass chokes the life contained in the soil below. It is time that people actually weighed the benefits and cons of having artificial grass.

A Look at Natural Grass

Natural grass lawns come at a huge cost to the environment. These lawns account for more than 1/3 of the total water used in a home, especially when grown in dry areas. In some states, there is a limitation on the size of the natural grass lawn that you can have due to the scarcity of water. Proponents of natural grass lawns do not consider the fertilizer use which will affect ground water sources.

On the plus side, a nice neat natural grass lawn has quite an emotional feel to it, and not just the aesthetic appeal. You cannot step on smooth, soft, well manicured lawns and not have an emotional reaction to the sensation. So there is a plus side to having natural grass lawns.

A Look at Artificial grass

Artificial grass is also known as the outdoor carpet, and it takes care of all the environmental cost of having a beautiful lawn. You do not need any water and chemical inputs to maintain it. There is an initial expense of putting up the turf, but if it can last for 25 years, then the cost is really low.

Synthetic grass has an aesthetic value that can hardly be matched by natural grass. You can have the grass in any color that you choose. And the applications are vast and varied. You can have synthetic turf indoors while you cannot do that with natural grass.

There are many who say that they have never liked anything fake, but synthetic grass is being loved. The more fake it is, the better the reaction. People have come up with ingenious ways to use synthetic grass in their homes and offices. Those against it say that it can cause burns when exposed to a lot of heat, but this is not the case. Today, people are installing the grass in ways that ensure that it is cool at all times.

On the down side, people say that synthetic turf is a heat absorber and can turn up the temperature of a region if used too much. They claim that it traps heat in the ground. That is yet to be proven, since the turf is permeable, allowing heat to pass through without hindrance.

Basically, synthetic grass is the way of the future. People want their homes to look nice without having to toil daily to maintain lovely gardens and lawns. Call us now and get to know more about the benefits of installing an Artificial grass lawn. You will be amazed at the possibilities available to you.
