Out in the Garden

Getting out into the garden to read a book, listen to the birds or generally potter about is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. The huge advantage of low-maintenance artificial grass UK is that you can ensure that your lawn is absolutely level, so anyone can use it.

And because your lawn is installed with proper drainage channels, it won't get muddy. That means that everyone from kids and dogs to people using mobility aids can use it at any time. If you run a residential care home, then artificial turf is a practical and aesthetic choice.

The Power of Green

Gardening is a hugely therapeutic activity, and just being outdoors can have a positive impact on mental health. Using synthetic grass is a clever way to keep your garden green all year round with the minimum of maintenance - just a rinse with a hosepipe and a quick brush-over will keep your grass looking good all year round.

Of course, that can also make your new lawn far more cost-effective than living grass. You don't need to maintain a lawn mower, pay for fuel, water your lawn throughout the summer and treat with expensive chemicals. Even if you need to pay someone to spray and brush, it's a much quicker job than a full lawn trim.

The Right Lawn

There's a wide range of synthetic turf to choose from to suit your needs and your budget. However, there are three things you need to look for to make sure your turf gives you the accessibility you require:

- Look for a maximum 30mm pile height. Any higher and it becomes difficult to manoeuvre a wheelchair across the lawn.

- Make sure your chosen grass has a high density of blades per sq m, which means it's higher quality and more durable and can stand up to the use of mobility aids and wheelchairs.

- Your grass should also be heavyweight as another measure of its durability - at least 1.8kg per sq m.

Boundary grass with its unique C squared technology might be the perfect choice. With a weight of 2.2 kg per sq m and a blade height of 30mm, it makes the ideal mid-height lawn, while the unique blade shape means your grass bounces back immediately and is twice as resilient. Add in excellent UV stabilisation and cool grass technology and Boundary is a brilliant choice for the accessible garden.
