You might be wondering, what is artificial grass? At Frank’s, we stock a wide range of high quality lawn to turn your garden from a high maintenance project to an outdoor space that looks beautiful and requires little to no upkeep.

If you have been thinking about artificial grass for your garden but you’d like to know a bit more about it and what the benefits are, we’ve got all the information you need.

What is artificial grass?

Artificial grass is a material made from synthetic, man-made fibres that work to mimic real grass. The synthetic blades that make up the grass are green and come in various pile types. 

If you think about the way carpet is manufactured, it consists of a solid backing and the blades are stitched on with a machine. With new technology, artificial grass has improved considerably and now replicates a like-for-like appearance to real grass.

Traditionally, artificial grass was solely used for sport applications rather than having real grass that requires regular maintenance.  However, these days it is now being used for residential and commercial landscaping projects.

Why consider it?

The benefits of artificial grass are endless. To start with, it is a cost effective choice and is proven to be an excellent landscaping option.

A natural lawn requires 55 gallons of water per square feet every year to keep it happy and healthy. On the other hand, artificial turf doesn’t require any water consumption.

Plus, real grass can die when not maintained properly. Artificial lawns can last up to twenty years or more, creating a ‘forever lawn’ for you and your family. The great thing about it is, once installed, it will always be green and beautiful.

Our artificial grass can never be overgrown or develop brown spots. Therefore, you needn’t worry about having to get the lawn mower out on a hot summer’s day, when really all you want to do is relax with a glass of wine and a good book!

What’s more, fertilisers, weed control products and lawn care equipment become a thing of the past when you invest in artificial turf; saving you money in the long run.

If you are a pet owner, or have children running around in the garden, you needn’t worry about muddy footprints appearing indoors once they’ve been outside. An artificial lawn means no mud – does it get any better?
