As Summer starts to blossom here in the UK, it's time to whip out those green thumbs and get your garden well and truly ready for a Summer of fun! There are so many benefits of Artificial Grass no matter what the season may be, it can prove to be particularly useful during the summer months, 

Advantages Of Artificial Grass In Summer 

1. No Mowing Your Lawn 

Here in the UK, sometimes those beautiful Summer days are very few and far in-between. What's worse than waking up on a beautiful Summer's day, planning a BBQ and then coming to the realisation that your lawn is overgrown and in dire need of some TLC. With Artificial Grass, you'll never have that problem.  

2. Summer Showers Won't Damage Your Lawn 

Secondly, as alluded to, it isn’t uncommon nowadays for us to have a “wet summer”, where it feels like our crucial July and August holidays are somewhat dampened by excessive rainfall. You could have muddy puddles or even floods, depending on where you live.

With regular grass, there’s a worry that the soil will be damaged and, though assisted by the warm temperatures, this will make the garden less enticing to sit out in or play activities in. With artificial grass, though, this becomes a non-issue. Okay, so we can’t control whether it’s going to rain or not, but the ground itself will not be damaged, so when the rain does go off, you can rest assured that the turf remains strong and firm, and ready for you to do whatever you wish. 

3. Playing In The Garden Is Fuss Free 

If you have a family or if you have pets, artificial grass not only prevents the kids or your pet dog from bringing mud into the house on their feet, but it also keeps them safer. We mentioned muddy puddles, and even if you go into the garden the next day, there’s a chance that someone, or one of your kids, could slip and fall.

With artificial turf, that doesn’t come into the equation, because the ground will not succumb to muddy puddles or patches of any kid which could potentially lead to falls or injuries. What’s more, because it remains solid and unharmed, the turf will never crack to allow mud or soil to seep through. So, the footprints should never be visible on your laminate kitchen floor once the family have finished having fun in the garden, because thanks to the artificial grass, you’ll never have known – from their feet, anyway – that they’ll have even been outside!

4. Perfect For Family Life 

Finally, let’s think about the activities that the family, the kids, or even the pets, may get up to. You could have a picnic. You could play football. You could have a mini-Olympics with minor running races. Or you could just lay on a deck chair and make the most of the sun. Whatever your activities may be, regular grass can pose a problem, especially after rainfall. What if your garden is full of mud? What if the weather has created a lot of damp patches? What if the sun has turned parts of the lawn an unwanted shade of brown?

This not only impacts upon what you can do in the garden, but it also creates less of a summer vibe; when you’re chilling in the sun, cocktail in one hand and puzzle book in the other, you don’t want to be looking down at grass which suggests that we’re in the autumn rather than the summer. But artificial grass bypasses all of this: the turf will be of the highest quality to stand on, run on, jump on etc. no matter if it’s rain or shine, or if it’s one day removed from a week’s worth of heavy showers, and the grass will always retain its natural shade of green, which is pleasing on the eye and further enhances the feeling of relaxing in the sunshine.
