The days are slowly getting longer and the weather is warming up slightly - there is no doubt about it, spring is in the air. As the nights get shorter, your mind will turn to the outside of your property as you begin to potter in the garden and prepare it for the spring and summer ahead. This is the perfect time to carry out essential maintenance tasks such as trimming hedges, digging out beds and mowing the lawn. But what if mowing the lawn no longer needed to be a consideration for you?

More and more homeowners are turning to the alternative lawn option that is astro turf. This brilliant garden feature is one that requires absolutely zero maintenance and turns your lawn into something that you can enjoy all year round. For a small initial outlay, mowing the lawn can become a thing of the past, as can weeding and seeding too. With astro turf you are guaranteed a green, fresh and lush lawn all year with absolutely no bald patches, puddles or scuffing.

This is the perfect time of year to have your astro turf laid so that you are free to enjoy the benefits of it throughout the spring and summer. Astro turf provides the perfect ground for kids to play football and other garden games in. You will find that traditional grass gardens take a fair amount of beating during the summer months (especially if you have children), so why not lay astro turf right now and then you can let the children play in the garden carefree.

Astro turf is cheaper than you might expect, and it has come a long way since the days when it actually looked fake. These days it is very tricky to tell the difference between astro turf and the real thing - so it is no wonder that it is becoming so popular with homeowners everywhere who are fed up of constantly mowing their lawn and worrying about bald patches.
