If you’ve been getting fed up with fighting with the lawnmower and garden shears this summer, it’s only natural that your thoughts might turn to installing some artificial grass. For many homeowners across the country, this summer has been spent dreaming of a garden that doesn’t require anywhere near as much TLC, so that they can spend more time relaxing and enjoying the sun.

Well, finally realising your dream is just a phone call away, because all you have to do is speak with the team at Great Grass so that we can come and install a brand new lawn!

But, after being so desperate for an artificial lawn for so long, you need to be careful that you don’t get a little  carried away with trying to look after it. If you’ve previously owned a natural lawn, then you might feel as though you should be doing all kinds of things to care for the artificial stuff- however this isn’t further from the truth.

The beauty of artificial grass lies in the fact that it requires very little looking after, and we’re going to run through the things you need to avoid doing to it:

Trimming It

Over the years, you might have grown accustomed to the habit of heading out into the garden with a pair of shears every few weeks. However, the last thing you want to do is start cutting the tips of your artificial grass because, quite obviously, it doesn’t need cutting! Instead of getting the lawnmower out, you can put your feet up and enjoy the afternoon.

Using Pesticides

The fact of the matter is that artificial grass isn’t really known to attract bugs, so we can’t imagine why you would ever feel as though you need to use some form of pesticide. However, we recommend just giving your lawn a bit of a hose down if you find that insects are taking a liking to it, as pesticides can actually prove quite damaging.

Growing Plants

It may surprise you to learn that artificial grass doesn’t actually support the growth of plants, so there’s no need for you to start worrying about any pesky little weeds! This means that your artificial lawn is sure to look absolutely gorgeous all year-round, and the smooth surface will never get invaded by any unwanted plant life!
