The Green, Green Grass of Home

When Tom Jones sang about the Green, Green Grass of Home, he didn't mean the artificial kind. There's no doubt that the smell of newly mown grass is one of the most evocative there is, and because it's a living thing it can improve your immediate environment by releasing oxygen. A natural lawn is also cooler than a synthetic one, and did we mention the smell? There's just something pleasing about living grass to look at and to feel under your toes.

Consider the Environment

However, if you want to be truly green, then getting rid of a resource-hogging lawn might be the best thing you can do for the environment. Beautiful and convenient, an artificial lawn consumes a tiny fraction of the resources your living lawn needs, and you won't be polluting the air with a petrol mower or strimmer to keep it looking nice.

And while a real lawn is a living thing, if you choose to use chemical fertilisers and weed killers, then a lot of micro-organisms can be wiped out and harmful by-products can leach into the water table. Plant a beautiful herbaceous border alongside your synthetic grass lawn and you'll encourage plenty of birds, bees and butterflies into your garden.

A Pleasure Garden

If you want your children to experience the feeling of real grass under their feet, then a living lawn is ideal. But if you hate muddy footprints through the house and having to wash grass-stained clothing, then a synthetic lawn might be the right choice for you. And a free-draining artificial lawn can actually be more supportive of the eco-system that lives in your soil than a compacted lawn that you try desperately to revive with chemicals. And of course you'll never have to mow your lawn again, ever.
