There are many reasons why more and more people are opting for synthetic lawn rather than proper lawn, but before we take a look at some of the reasons, I must just ask you something. Have you seen just how realistic artificial plants are these days? When I was a kid, you could tell from a mile away if plants weren’t real, but these days you often have to physically touch them in order to be sure.
Firstly it is essential to have some kind of plan in place. Start by figuring out how much room you have available. Do you have a large area of lawn you want to keep, for example? Do you want more flowerbeds and shrubs, or are you happy with what you have? Or do you simply want to get rid of everything and start again?
Shingle is another option you might choose. It makes good ground cover and helps keep the weeds down. There are many different colours and sizes of shingle. The shingle can be used with the paving to help break up the flatness and add texture to the garden. Shingle is quite difficult to walk on and would not be suitable for wheel chair users, so is not for everyone. But it could be used to create borders and interest to your garden. It is also good for driveways especially in rural areas as it is very difficult to walk quietly on shingle so visitors rarely arrive unannounced.
In football it is also commonly used. But unlike natural grass the synthetic grass gives the players more serious abrasions and burns. FIFA launched the “FIFA Preferred Producer” initiative to improve the quality of the artificial turf. On the other hand UEFA stressed on having natural grass at the stadiums. UEFA only permits thi công sân vườn cỏ nhân tạo where the climatic conditions are not fair.
It is low Maintenance-after installing your artificial grass, there is virtually nothing that you have to do apart from playing with your pet or admiring your yard’s greenery. It does not need watering, fertilizer or even mowing.
We bought some decorative and expensive grass last year that is taking a while to flourish. I purchased some darts of grass leaves and threw them into brown clumps of grass for shocks of healthy green. As the grass matures and takes hold, I will migrate the darts elsewhere. Since people don’t expect plastic in Garden Artificial Grass, they take them at face value. They expect them to be real, and so they are real.
If it is the required by model grass you are using, you should proceed to extend the silica sand (different yields for each type of grass) to give more strength and natural appearance to the lawn. If the model does not require sand, you can take a small amount to give greater firmness.
All in all, make sure your potential artificial grass company has your best interest in mind. You are the one that will have to either enjoy it or endure it every day. It’s your investment. Your dream. Make sure their technicians are highly trained in quality synthetic turf installation, with several years of experience – not just the slapping of concrete and gluing or nailing down something green. But, actually outlining your design and laying a quality turf that won’t wrinkle, creep, or budge. Years after your technician has completed his installation you should be able to call up the same artificial grass business and tell them their work still looks as good as new.
