From football pitches, golf clubs and regularly garden lawns, artificial turfs are pretty much everywhere now. The best thing about this artificial turf take over is that not many passers-by tend to notice the difference. If you are yet to make the switch, read on! The team here at Great Grass have put together a blog which explains the differences between real grass and artificial grass to help you make that all important decision…

Real Grass

If you are looking to do up your garden and are thinking off adding fresh real grass to complete the look, a brand new turf can really transform the look. The actual process of lying the rolls of turf is not overly difficult- however it requires quite a bit of soil preparation. This include removing the old lawn, weeding, digging, raking and ensuring that the surface is level. In fact, most real turfs must be laid within 24 hours of their delivery so you must work quickly. After a few days you may walk on it- however it must be watered regularly until it roots into the soil underneath.

Artificial Grass

The popularity of artificial grass very heavily relies upon its low maintenance guaranteed. It’s no secret that artificial turf requires minimal upkeep as it doesn’t need cutting and will remain green all year round. For families with young children and dogs, homeowners are attracted to the fact that it cannot be dug up either. Plus, in 2017 the turfs that are available on the market are so advance and detailed that you can now purchase a very convincing artificial lawn. If the necessary, but low, maintenance is carried out, many turfs are said to last for around 7-10 years.
