A dream garden is something that most homeowners aspire to have not least because it can add value to your home, but it can be difficult to achieve with traditional lawns. Between the mowing, watering, and fertilizing, maintaining a lush green lawn can be time-consuming and expensive. Artificial grass is a great alternative for those who want to create a low-maintenance and beautiful garden without the hassle.
In this blog, the final in the series about Artificial Grass, we’ll explore the reasons why artificial turf is proving to be a popular choice for ALS Landscaping customers, when it comes to designing their dream garden makeovers in Lincolnshire.
Read on to find out why ALS Landscaping Lincoln believes that artificial grass is the perfect solution for busy families.
One of the most important benefits of artificial grass is that it requires minimal maintenance. Natural grass takes a LOT of looking after. Hours of mowing, watering and fertilizing regularly if you want to keep up with the Jones’ next door. Artificial grass is simple. It only needs to be cleaned with a brush and a hose, and not that regularly either. In our book, that’s why it’s an ideal choice for busy homeowners who want to enjoy their gardens, without having to spend a lot of time and money on upkeep.
According to a report by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), artificial grass is a low-maintenance alternative to natural grass that offers a number of benefits, including “reduced need for mowing, watering, and fertilizing” (RHS, 2021).
Artificial grass is also highly durable and long-lasting. Unlike natural grass, which can become damaged or worn due to heavy foot traffic or harsh weather conditions, artificial grass is designed to withstand these challenges. This means that it will maintain its appearance and function for many years without too much heavy lifting.
In our previous blog ‘Is Artificial Grass Child & Pet Friendly?’ we discuss in more detail how durable artificial grass is especially for families with children and pets.
Another reason why artificial grass is great for garden makeovers is that it is incredibly versatile. It can be used in a variety of different garden styles and designs, and it is suitable for a range of different types of properties, from small courtyards to large estates. This means that homeowners have the freedom to create the garden of their dreams, without being limited by the type of natural grass that is available and will grow well in their area.
Artificial Grass Looks Great All Year Round
Finally, artificial grass looks great all year round. Unlike natural grass, which can become patchy or brown in the winter months, artificial grass retains its vibrant green appearance throughout the year. This makes it an ideal option for anyone who wants a garden that looks its best all year round.
According to a recent blog by Frank’s The Flooring Store (2022) …”artificial grass showcases superior resilience and demonstrates many advantages compared to natural grass.”

It’s low-maintenance, durable, versatile, and looks great all year round and when looked after will last up to 15 years.
