This week, we're celebrating #NationalChildrensDay at Grass Warehouse. So, it's time to appreciate the amazing benefits that artificial grass can have for your active and mischief ridden children, not just during the Summer, but all year round!
Although artificial grass has a wide variety of stand out benefits, such as it being low maintenance and vibrantly green all year round, here's some benefits that you may not have thought about in relation to your family life.
Artificial Grass Is Allergen Free!
Hay Fever and seasonal allergies can affect the whole family and take the fun out of the glorious sunshine. Allergy UK reports that between 10-30% of adults and as many as 40% of children throughout the UK suffer from hay fever.
Hay fever leaves many sufferers throughout the UK dreading the spring and early summer. Streaming eyes, running noses and relentless sneezing are all side effects, and a common cause of hay fever is grass pollen.
A major benefit of having artificial grass installed in your garden is that it can help to reduce the symptoms of hay fever. Swapping your real lawn for a fake one can completely remove the grass from your garden, making it a little easier for hay fever sufferers to spend time outside in the garden during the warmer months.
Say Goodbye to Muddy Shoes & Mess
One of the major benefits of artificial grass is the fact that playing on the garden lawn will no longer mean mud and mess.The days of muddy footprints being tracked back into the house by the kids and/or family pets will be a thing of the past.
With a real garden lawn, as soon as the heavens open – and let’s face it, in the UK that’s quite often – it’s back inside the house until it dries out. Otherwise, you're met with the obstacle of a water logged garden and VERY messy children.
But, with Artificial grass, if installed correctly, is completely absorptive.

Perfectly Safe For Children's Play Areas
Apart from being mud and allergen free, artificial grass also makes the garden a safer environment for families due to its non-slip nature and soft underfoot feel.
And if your garden has climbing frames or slides, or anything else that involves the potential for children to fall from height, you can protect them from injuries by installing artificial grass underlay underneath your new lawn.
No Harmful Chemicals
With real grass there's a lot of maintainance involved to keep it looking good. Watering and mowing might not be enough to keep real grass healthy.You might need to turn to chemical help in the form of fertilisers, weedkillers and pesticides.
But apart from being damaging to the environment, these chemicals can also be damaging to your family’s health.A lawn drenched in these chemicals creates a far from ideal environment for family garden activities, and it isn’t good for pets, either.
However, with artificial grass toxic chemicals such as these will be a thing of the past.Artificial grass can be installed anywhere in your garden, including around trees and shrubs, an environment that is next to impossible for real grass to survive in.
So why not ditch the chemicals and consider installing an artificial lawn? It looks better, and it’s better for you and your family!
More Time To Spend Together
We all live increasingly busy lifestyles and unfortunately the amount of time we get to spend with our families seems to be ever decreasing.
Long working hours, social events and household chores all take up vast amounts of our daily lives. But, of course, it’s very important that we all find as much time as we can possibly spare to spend with our families. Artificial grass can help families achieve this as it drastically reduces the amount of time you’ll need to spend maintaining your garden.
You’ll no longer need to waste your weekends trudging up and down the garden pushing the lawn mower or strimming back the edges as, of course, artificial grass never needs mowing.
