Artificial grass is becoming more popular in British gardens, and it’s not hard to see why. While it had a bad reputation for quality back in the day, advances in the artificial grass industry mean that fake turf is almost indistinguishable from the real thing (unless you’re looking really closely).

Despite this, some people remain hesitant when it comes to choosing artificial grass for their home. In this article, we’re going to look at some of the key reasons to install artificial grass and how it can make life better for you.

Looks great in all weather

Natural grass might look incredible during the summer months when it gets plenty of sunshine, but it’s not always the case in autumn and winter. Even in summer, it only looks superb if you mow it regularly and if it hasn’t died off because of a dry spell. With artificial grass, not only does it look like the real thing, but it will maintain that look all year round, whether the sun is shining, or the heavens are opening.


We mentioned the need to mow your lawn during the summer, but that’s just one of several essential tasks. To keep natural grass looking perfect, you need to mow it, feed it, weed it, trim its edges, and so much more. With artificial turf, you can leave it to its own devices. The most you might need to do is scrub it with a cloth to get rid of a stain from a spilled drink or a pet’s droppings.


Speaking of pets, natural lawns aren’t always great for them. Insects can get into their fur, they can chew the grass, which might make them sick, and you have to be careful when adding weedkiller, lawn food, and other products. It’s not great from the lawn’s perspective either. Any dog owner will recognise patches of dead or faded grass when their pet has a particular spot where they relieve themselves. With artificial grass, you rid yourself of all those risks.

Cleaner inside and out

One major benefit of artificial grass is that it’s clean. You can spread out in your garden, enjoying a picnic, running around with the kids, or rolling around with your dog, and be sure that you’re not going to end up covered in grass stains. Likewise, there won’t be any blades of grass stuck to your clothes that will end up being dragged inside, messing up your house.

Cheaper over time

While installing artificial grass requires a greater initial outlay than seeding a lawn or laying natural turf, it offers a much better return on investment. We’ve already discussed how low-maintenance it is, and that includes the cost of upkeep. There’s no buying, fuelling, and maintaining a lawnmower involved; there’s no need to water it to keep it in good condition—no risk during a hosepipe ban, come to think of it!

The Benefits of Artificial Grass: Final Thoughts

All of these are excellent reasons for installing artificial grass at your property. After all, a modern home should really have a thoroughly modern garden attached to it.
