Have you been considering getting artificial grass? I know a few people who have been thinking about it but are pretty unsure. One of the things I recommend doing first is to look at samples of the different types available. This was what we did before we did our front yard make over. Artificial grass isn't for everyone so it's best to look up as much information as you can to find out if it is right for you.

Here are some of the benefits of opting for artificial grass:

Low maintenance
Artificial grass is very low maintenance. There is no need to cut, re-seed or water artificial grass so it is ideal for people who have a busy lifestyle or are unable to maintain a lawn.

Aesthetically pleasing
Artificial grass looks good all year round. You don't have to worry about mud, patchy areas or discolouration. 

Artificial grass is long lasting and if laid correctly should last for around 15 years or so. It's highly durable and can withstand wear and tear, is weather-proof, does not dry out, does not get waterlogged, and will not fall victim to pest infestations. 

Cost effective 
Whilst an expense at first artificial grass is an investment and cost effective over time. With artificial grass you are not having to think about costs from mowing the law, re-seeding,  watering and other maintenance products used on real grass.

Child and pet friendly 
Artificial grass is safe for children and pets as there are no harmful chemicals. It's also allergen free which is especially ideal for those of you that usually suffer from hay-fever. Artificial grass is also soft underfoot and non slip so ideal for play areas especially if you install the right underlay.
