Hard landscaping vs. Artificial Grass

Artificial Lawn in EssexAre you looking to re-design your garden to lessen the amount of maintenance required?  If so, you’re probably carefully considering whether to go for paving, gravel, decking or one of many other hard landscaping solutions.  But have you considered the benefits of artificial grass?  Here’s a quick comparison:

Aesthetics

While a contemporary paved space may be what you originally had in mind for your garden – will it really be the same without grass?  Why choose concrete when you can have a lush, evergreen lawn?

Maintenance

Fake grass is almost maintenance free – no mowing, edge-trimming, weeding, watering or feeding.  All that’s required is regular brushing, you can also hoover and hose down if required, making it much the same as paving.

Cost

This is difficult to compare because it depends on the type of design you’re looking at – block paving, multiple decked areas, or decorative gravel.  To give you an idea LeisureTech Lawns offer an inclusive price for the grass, labour, and materials of £45 per square metre.

Installation

Synthetic grass installations are fairly simple and relatively quick – much more straightforward than many types of hard landscaping.

Use

Concrete is cold and hard.  It doesn’t feel good under foot, and you cannot lie out on it on a sunny day.  Good quality artificial grass is soft, bouncy and feels just like the real thing.  It’s great for children and pets allowing you to enjoy your garden more.
