Defining artificial lawn:
When most people think of artificial lawn they automatically have Astroturf and the bright lumo variety spring to mind. The new artificial alternatives have truly made that a thing of the past with all the variety available, here are the basics:
To do with artificial lawn:
Artificial lawn is made to resemble natural grass but is made of wholly synthetic materials and has a natural feel. The “pack” or synthetic grass is set into a rubber or sand base to give it a wholly natural feel. This is done through the use of rubber granules mixed with special sand. This is a great improvement on previous versions as it has a very genuine feel underfoot.
Varieties of artificial lawn:
There are two types of pile – short pile and long pile, the short pile does not necessarily require to be set with rubber or sand mixtures but the long pile does, that is what gives it the natural feel of a real lawn when emplaced.
Advantages of artificial lawn:
The main advantage of artificial lawn is the incredibly small amount of work it requires to look good. You never need to mow, seed or weed and or fertilize the lawn. All that is required is to remove leaves and debris if you so desire. It is also a cost effective option as once it is laid there are no other costs involved. Your lawn also always looks beautiful as a result of the synthetics used.
Making use of artificial lawn:
The other simple advantage of artificial lawn is that it can be used in all the places that you would use real lawn and some places you can’t. Some plans include:
- As a substitute for real lawn.
- At the pool area
- On a balcony
- In the kids’ playpen
- For sport areas
- On a golf course
