A new study conducted by garden furniture website Alfresia.co.uk has found that natural lawns are falling out of favour with British homeowners because of the upkeep involved. Instead, Britons are opting for low maintenance alternatives such as paving, decking and artificial grass.

In fact, one in ten homeowners in the UK already have artificial grass installed with two thirds of those stating the reason as not having enough time to mow the lawn. Other statistics revealed that one in four UK homes have no grass whatsoever in their gardens and almost three-quarters of adults claimed having a lawn is a ‘burden.’

It seems as a time-poor nation, gone are the days of perfectly preened, natural lawns that have been the norm, and the pride and joy of many Britons over the years. Instead, we are seeking for alternative ways to maintain our gardens, with minimum effort, whilst still retaining the aesthetics of a beautiful garden.
