How to choose the perfect fake grass for your garden

For green fingered Brits, the grass is the central element of the garden, some spend every spare moment manicuring their gardens to perfection, trimming and edging as they go.

Did you know that those of you with natural lawns spend over 6.5 weeks of your life mowing?! Whether you love or hate mowing, it is taking up valuable time.

Why not ditch the mower and replace your tired, time-consuming lawn with artificial grass from Astrotastic?

First of all, you will need to decide what you’d do with 6.5 weeks to spare!!  you want to use the space for so you can choose the correct density.  This will help you decide which kind of artificial lawn you go for.

Children’s play area

For families with kids, getting them to play outside instead of sitting in front of the TV is always the better option but what if they want to play football, run around and what if it rains. Your lawn can quickly become churned up and now you’ve got the chore of mopping the floor of muddy footprints.

Artificial grass comes in different densities so if you are choosing fake grass for a place for the kids to play or an area with a lot of footfall, choosing low density artificial grass will mean that it won’t get flattened over time. The benefit of artificial grass for children’s play areas is that it won’t get churned up like natural grass so no more muddy footprints (and no more weeks of your life spent mowing!).

A ‘show’ garden

Doing it for the dog
