Recently, I was involved in the #LowEnergyParenting campaign and I’ve been thinking more about the energy we use, including things like mowing the grass which can have a huge impact on energy use. If I decide to install artificial grass for our garden, I will save on the energy bill as I have one less thing to do in the garden that requires energy!
We like the idea of being part of the solution and not the problem when it comes to doing our part for the environment. Imagine the impact we can have if we all make a concerted effort! Every step you take to reduce your energy consumption, you are contributing to a cleaner, greener, smarter Britain.
Fake grass is becoming increasingly common within residential and commercial gardens. Installing high-quality artificial grass will not only last for many years, but it is also hard to distinguish from a natural lawn. It is a great choice for many households.
Besides saving energy from mowing or trimming the grass, fake grass does not need watering. During any hosepipe bans, you won’t have any worries as your artificial turf will look green all year-round and not dry and yellow! You could make a huge saving on your water bill! You will occasionally need to brush off any leaves and wash any dirt off the surface to keep it looking in tip-top condition.
Keeping a natural lawn weed and moss-free requires using harmful pesticides, fertilisers, herbicides and fungicides that filter through the soil and drain into the waterways. With artificial grass, you won’t need to use any of these to keep them pristine. You would help reduce the number of chemicals that go back into the earth!
As you can see, artificial turf is incredibly beneficial for the environment. The best thing about it is that over time, the artificial grass will start to pay for itself through the savings on maintenance costs. So what do you think about artificial grass?
