Everybody dreams of one day spotting their neighbour glancing over to their garden with a look of sheer envy etched across their face. We all want to achieve that dream garden to provide ourselves with a relaxing outdoor space and to improve the value of our property. A lot of people will use the exterior to your home as a way of making assumptions about the interior, and therefore it’s important that your garden is looking great all year-round.

When it comes to designing and creating your dream garden, the most important aspect is undoubtedly your lawn. It doesn’t matter whether you incorporate grand statues or elaborate water features into your outdoor space- people will always use the state of your lawn as an indication of how healthy your garden is.

This means that you have an incredibly big decision to make- do you go for natural grass or the artificial stuff? Well, we’re here at Great Grass to give you a brief rundown on both, so that you know how to get your garden off to a good start.


It’s no secret that artificial grass is by far the better looking of the two types of grass. For a start, it’s guaranteed to keep its length and colour all year-round, and is basically unaffected by the elements. In comparison, natural grass can soon become overgrown and messy looking. Once the winter rolls around, you’ll find that your natural grass has lost a lot of its green and is looking a little sorry for itself. With the technology now available in the artificial grass industry, we are able to supply our customers with high quality grass that looks, feels and even sounds like the real thing.


We’re now well into November and heading out into the garden is probably the last thing you want to do. Well, this is exactly what you’ll be doing if you own natural grass and want your garden to keep looking fresh. Natural grass requires an incredible amount of maintenance throughout the year- whether it’s mowing or weeding, you’ll find that real grass is far too time consuming. However, the artificial stuff requires very little maintenance, meaning that you can enjoy a great looking garden without any of the fuss.


Artificial grass certainly incurs a larger upfront cost- due to the fact that its installation would require that your old lawn is dug up and replaced. However, the lack of maintenance involved means that you won’t have to pay anyone to maintain the garden or to replace it entirely. Artificial grass is more of an investment, as it will save you a lot of money in the long-run, despite its larger upfront cost.


Due to its durability, aesthetics and sheer lack of required maintenance, artificial grass is undoubtedly the superior type of grass. You can kiss goodbye to the days of wrestling the mower out of your shed, and instead put your feet up and bask in the greenery of your brand new artificial lawn.

Here at Great Grass, we supply the best artificial grass that money can buy, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like any further info on the products we have available!
