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.

Running a home can be hard work when you have children running around and making mess wherever they go however there are things you can do to help run your home more smoothly.  Designate a play area  We have half of our dining room a place for Blake to play. We have it set up with a soft mat to play on and a bean bag incase he wants to sit and read.  Cover the sofa Using a washable throw is a great idea to protect your sofa from sticky finger marks and it can just be chucked into the washing machine. Tidy as you go along This is a habit that we need to start doing more often as it will save us a lot of time in the long run.


We have been home owners now for almost 2 and a half years. In that time I must admit we have learnt quite a bit. To be able to afford our own home we had to relocate from Bedfordshire to Lincolnshire and we have no regrets as we love the area and we are a train ride away from bigger cities such as Lincoln, Leeds and Sheffield.


The bathroom in our home, doesn't need much doing to it as the previous owners, had renovated it not long before we moved in. The bathroom itself is a good size family bathroom  and colourwise I really like the tiles the previous owners had chosen. The bathroom to me is an important  place in the home as its a place for me to go after a busy and long day/week and relax. One of my favourite parts of our bathroom has to be the LED lights across the beams.  It brings a relaxing ambience to the bathroom, for when I have my bath. Blake also loves this as he is very sensory and enjoys looking at the lights whilst having his bath.
