Artificial Grass Design & Installation from Ariana Landscapes for Derby
In this article will are going to look at the pros and cons of having an artificial grass lawn laid at your
Why do the residents of Derby love artificial grass? Artificial grass has had a slow rise in popularity. With B&Q only starting to stock it in 2007 although it quickly sold out after it was first displayed at the Chelsea Flower show. This was a bold move and it paid off and the rise of the artificial grass begun.
Other contributing factors are its low maintenance properties and that peoples lifestyles in Derby are getting busier and people don’t want to spend their valuable time mowing the lawn, they just want to be able to enjoy their garden with friends and family.
It is important to understand that for your turf to last for many years, you need to ensure that it is installed correctly. You can not just lay the turf straight on top of soil, you need to install a full 4 inch sub base which is compacted before installing a 2 inch layer of grit sand which is the cushioning layer under your turf.
Turf also comes in 4 meter widths, so if your garden is greater than 4 meters there will be a join in the turf but choose Ariana Landscapes in Derby to install your artificial turf and this join line will be minimally seen to the unprofessional eye.
The benefits of having artificial grass in your Derby garden standout rather quickly, its:
Long Lasting – Artificial grass has a life span on average of 25 years so although more expensive than turf on the outset it does last longer. The long-lasting properties of this bring itself to the maintenance benefits we will discuss later.
Low Maintenance – Artificial grass does not need watering, feeding or cutting, all jobs that in the summer months take up many of a frustrated Sunday afternoons across Derby.
Variety – As the popularity of artificial grass in Derby has risen so has the variety of turf, they come in different shades of green, different pile lengths, textures, and some have brown woven strands in the turf to help make the artificial turf look as natural as feasibly possible.
Recycled – Many UK manufacturers have chosen to create their artificial grass for sale from recycled plastics. This can be slightly more expensive but is great for the environment and gets it out of Derby landfills and back for us to enjoy.
