You know there'll be plenty of tidying up and replanting to do, especially after the worst winter in Britain for 30 years, but then you console yourself that annual replanting is a part of every garden and there's nothing you can do about the weather. So you accept to just get on with it with the hope that it won't take up all the holiday you have.
Then that sinking feeling sets in ... you just remembered the lawn! You look at the faded, patchy, muddy, weed-ridden, mossy mess and contemplate what it will take to get it in shape.You start paging through seed catalogues, get the mower out of the shed for an overhaul and tune-up; then come the visits to the local garden centre for pesticides to sort out the moss and weeds. The notion of a relaxing Easter break is now a mere fantasy ... and all in pursuit of that 'perfect lawn'.
What a waste! With an artificial lawn you can throw away the mower and do Mother Nature a favour by abandoning pesticides AND saving on water this summer. And that's not all ... the kids and the dog won't be bringing in muddy feet to the house any more either and every Easter from now on you can relax.
The initial cost of installing an artificial lawn will of course be more than the annual cost to revamp your old natural grass lawn BUT it's the lifetime savings that add up - no more seeding, fertilizing, trimming, mowing, strimming, watering plus all the time you will have saved ... time you can spend doing far more valuable and enjoyable things. In addition, there are the environmental benefits.
