EBay Announces Fake Grass Sales Up 44 Per Cent

IMG_1152-e1329658836816Earlier the in the month, the Daily Express reported that eBay’s sales of garden and outdoor leisure products were soaring despite the weather.  Sales of artificial turf are up 44% and patio heaters a massive 64% on last year.  Brits are fighting back against the cold and rain, refusing to let it spoil our fun.

Many people are turning to fake grass because they simply cannot maintain their lawns when the weather is so changeable.  Read: Waiting for a break in the rain so you can mow your lawn?

The wet is no good for kids either; they can’t play outside in the mud.  A new lawn eliminates this problem; they can kick a football around without it being a mud bath.

Patio heaters are an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors on clear but slightly chilly day, or al fresco dining in the evenings when the temperature has dropped.  The best thing you can invest in is a pergola, or gazebo.  A sheltered area in your garden means fresh air and tea on the patio all year round.

Beware of DIY installation

These days online stores and DIY chains have lots of choice in terms of quality.  However, it doesn’t matter how superior the product is if it’s not fitted correctly.  Installing artificial lawns is a highly specialised job.  It may look easy but mistakes can have disastrous consequences.  Plus, by the time you’ve bought the rest of the materials and tools needed, you may find you’re not actually saving much.

We offer an inclusive price of just £45 per sq metre.  That’s everything – the grass itself, crushed hard-core base, sand infill, and labour.  So, before you buy, why not get a quote from a local company and weigh up your options?
