Top 5 reasons to install artificial grass

Advances in artificial grass technology have resulted in realistic looking, eco-friendly products. This new breed of artificial lawn is not only realistic looking but sustainable, functional, and best of all, it’s practically maintenance-free. Having and enjoying a lush green lawn doesn’t have to mean enduring hours of maintenance or spending fortunes on watering and feeding.

Here are Easylife Lawns top five reasons why you should install artificial grass:
  1. Low Maintenance
Artificial grass in virtually maintenance free, need we say any more! There is no need for constant mowing, watering, weeding and feeding. Synthetic grass provides a low-maintenance solution without sacrificing the beauty, function or look of real grass. You can just sit back relax and enjoy your lush green artificial lawn all year round.
  1. Durability
While weather, children and pets cause traditional lawns to become muddy, worn and un-useable an Easylife artificial lawn will always remain beautifully green and usable. Artificial grass excels in areas of regular use: gardens, playgrounds, schools, dog runs and commercial areas, just to name a few. Artificial lawns are UV stabilised to protect them from discolouring even in the sunniest climates

  1. Versatility
Artificial grass can be installed in many different locations from shop displays, roof terraces to areas where natural grass simply won’t grow. Artificial grass also comes in an array of vibrant colours that can create eye catching exhibition stand flooring or contemporary outdoor entertainment areas.
  1. Sustainability
Unlike traditional lawns, artificial grass products use recycled and sustainable materials. Artificial grass allows you to conserve water, eliminate lawn mower emissions and remove the need for harmful fertilisers and pesticides. You can relax and enjoy your lawn knowing you are helping the environment.
  1. Appearance
Recent advances in artificial grass technology have resulted in soft, dense, realistic looking lawns that are almost indistinguishable from the real thing. An artificial lawn can be used all year round and will be the envy of your friends, family and neighbours.

These are just a few of the many benefits of artificial grass. Please call us on 01245 361502 / 07840712739 or email enquiries@easylifelawns.com to discuss your requirements further.  Just imagine a low maintenance lawn that looks great all year round with no mowing, watering or hassle!

The risks of mowing your lawn

With the start of the growing season (spring) for grass now just around the corner we thought it would only be right to highlight the health risks associated to mowing your traditional lawn.

A Swedish-based scientist has found that just one-hour's mowing with a petrol driven mower could produce the same amount of carcinogens as an average car does in a 150km drive.

Dr Peter Westerholm, of Stockholm University, is calling for petrol-driven mowers to be fitted with pollution-reducing catalytic converters, which are fitted in cars.

The Royal Society for the prevention of accidents indicates that there are about 300,000 people hurt in their gardens each year that are serious enough to go to hospital. At the top of their list for the most dangerous garden tools is the lawn mower (6,700 in the UK each year) and at number 9 are hoses and sprinklers (1,900).

By installing artificial grass in your garden you could eliminate the health risks associated with mowing and watering the grass, so why not contact Easylife Lawns and reduce the chance of becoming a garden accident statistic!
