A beautiful artificial lawn seems like an obvious choice when you understand the advantages. It’s easy to care for, needs no mowing or watering, and is UV resistant so it stays looking good when living turf has withered in the summer sun. But there are some unexpected benefits to opting for artificial grass.
Research shows that being amongst nature can make us happier and healthier. But artificial nature can also trick the body into lowering anxiety and stress, which is why artificial grass has become so popular for pop up urban parks. The benefits of being together and socialising in the sun are accessible to all with an artificial lawn.
We all know the simple mantra of ‘eat less, do more’. But that can be difficult to achieve with the busy lifestyles we lead. A low maintenance lawn gives you more time to spend together as a family, lowering stress levels after work and contributing to childhood development. Getting stuck into a game of football or having a bounce on the trampoline won’t result in the destruction of your grass. And with soft landings and no mud to deal with, you can spend quality outdoor time together at any time of year.
Say goodbye to allergies
Although your artificial lawn can’t eliminate all airborne allergies, many hay fever sufferers have found relief when they have made the switch. Artificial grass doesn’t produce pollen so you’ll be able to enjoy sunbathing without the misery. If you’re one of the 10 million allergy sufferers in the UK who feels trapped inside all summer, try an artificial lawn. Your allergy prone pets will love you for it, too.
Make your garden accessible
If any members of your family have mobility issues, artificial grass can be a real boon. You don’t have to sacrifice having a lawn for accessibility: artificial lawn turf is laid on hard core and presents a solid and stable surface for a mobility scooter or buggy. Best of all, you won’t get stuck in the mud. If you can no longer maintain a living lawn, artificial grass will give you back the freedom of your garden with no strenuous upkeep.
