Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve just had an artificial face lift. Or at least the lawn has. After six months watching our brand new lawn turn from lush green to boggy brown, our only option was to go artificial. My eco conscience had to be talked down as there was really no other way to provide a safe and practical year round space for three kids plus dog.
Obviously I wanted the new lawn to not only perform well but look as authentic as possible. There are a large number of firms on the market, capitalising on the growing trend for artificial grass and they by and large offer similar products. The standard has improved tremendously over the last few years with exciting developments in fabrication, yarn shape and drainage, resulting in grass which not only looks more realistic but doesn’t flatten over time.
