The Artificial Grass Revolution

Did you know that more than one in ten homes have an artificial grass lawn?

The Telegraph stated Alfesia conducted a survey on 1,000 people, and the results proved that artificial grass is becoming a necessity to homes for two main reasons:

Lack of time
A lawn is a burden

67 per cent of people surveyed, stated lack of time was their reason for turning to artificial grass. Understandably, after a long day at work, you want to relax and spend your weekends socialising or entertaining a hobby instead of mowing your lawn. Instead, you are stressed and forced to do something you do not want to do, as you can not leave your lawn untidy and unattractive if guests are coming over.
Similarly, 71 per cent of people surveyed, stated that having a real grass lawn was a burden. We are a time-poor nation, and we do not want to spend the minimum free time we have maintaining a house. With a real grass lawn, you have to water it when the weather is sunny as well as fertilising and mowing the lawn often.
Most likely, more people will turn to artificial grass in the future and these figures will continue to rise. But why is artificial grass becoming a necessity for households?

  • Lack of maintenance – no need for watering, mowing, pesticides and fertiliser

  • Environmentally friendly

  • Up to 20-year life expectancy

  • Safe for pets and children

  • No mud, weeds, discoloured spots and no bald patches

  • It looks near identical to real grass
