Traditional Lawn to Become a Thing of the Past
Research carried out by insurance company LV has found that over a million homeowners paved over their lawn in 2013, with almost a third doing so to reduce garden maintenance.
The results showed that on average, the amount of green space paved over by households was 24.2sq m – almost the same size as two parking spaces.
It’s clear that maintaining a traditional lawn has become an increasingly tough challenge for modern homeowners, with the constantly changing weather causing one of the biggest issues. Experts have suggested that periods of torrential rain and long droughts could become more of a regular occurrence for the UK, and as a result maintaining a ‘classic’ British lawn will become much harder.
It’s unsurprising that so many Brits have given up on their gardens. Maintaining a lawn can be time consuming, expensive and frustrating. In fact it has been reported that the average British homeowner spends around 2 months of their life mowing their lawn, but despite hours of mowing, fertilizing, trimming and weeding we rarely end up achieving the elusive lush, green appearance we crave.
Love them or hate them, it’s undeniable that our lawns take up a lot of valuable time and money, causing gardeners to turn to increasingly extreme measures to combat maintenance.
At AGD we know that there’s a solution. Problems such as mowing, watering and maintaining a lawn all become extinct as soon as you install artificial grass!
Turf from AGD is built to last come rain or shine. Its drainage system means that even extreme weather conditions won’t disrupt the colour or appearance, leaving it looking lush and green all year round. In high wear and tear areas such as children’s play areas, animal runs and pathways, artificial grass is the perfect solution if natural grass won’t grow naturally.
As traditional lawns become a thing of the past, you don’t have to pave over your garden – just install artificial grass!
