National Allotment Week (10-16th August)
Next Monday marks the start of National Allotment Week (10th-16th August), and there’s no better time to get out and enjoy all the delights of an allotment!
For 2015, the focus is “a plot for all ages”, highlighting that no matter how old you are, you could benefit from all the advantages of an allotment.
What is an allotment?
In the UK, allotments are small plots of land rented to individuals in the community for the purpose of growing flowers or food crops.
Allotments are not only a great way to enjoy healthy, home grown produce, they’re a good way to save money, increase exercise and meet new people.
If looking for ways to make your plot even more appealing this National Allotment Week why not read some of our top ways you can utilise artificial grass in your space.
There are a number of ways you can use artificial grass to enhance your shed! Take a look some of our top ideas:
- Artificial grass roof – Add a cut of artificial turf to the roof of your allotment shed to blend in with the surrounding greenery
- Carpet – Artificial grass can also be used as a durable floor covering for your shed. Not only is it bang on trend, AGD turf is easy to wash and holds great appeal!
- Mat – Don’t have the budget or time to install a full carpet? Why not add some colour to your shed by adding a practical and inexpensive artificial grass doormat?
2. Garden chairs
You could even use artificial grass to transform your old garden chairs that are past their best. A brand new grassy chair cover will provide a durable surface that will give a unique twist to the look of your allotment!
3. Area of lawn
If you’re looking to further save money and maximise your plot why not utilise the economical, low maintenance benefits of artificial grass around the allotment itself. A patch of artificial lawn looks much more appealing than gravel or concrete and will stay looking lush and green without any need for fertilising, mowing or watering
