With astro turf, you can save the planet and money on your water bill, as it doesn't need to be watered! The rain will do it's bit keeping your grass clean, you'll just need to hose it down every so often if your pets do their business on it.

Many people also laden their natural turf with toxic chemicals and fertiliser to help it grow and keep weeds out.

We also have maintenance, think of all the fumes being put into the environment mowing your lawn every weekend with that petrol-guzzling machine. The beauty of artificial turf is that you can choose a length that is right for you, and it will stay that way, no trimming required!
