With the coldest months of the year firmly on their way, most people spend less time in their gardens and more time in their homes. But when it comes to upkeep, miserable weather can spell big problems for traditional turf. From heavy rainfall to mud-covered grass, no one’s natural lawn looks at its best in the dead of winter.
If you’re a fan of gardens that can look after themselves year-round with little to no maintenance, switching from your standard garden turf to something a little easier to manage might be the best choice for you. Not only will you have more hours in your day to enjoy your garden, but you won’t have to worry about restoring it to its former glory once the colder, wetter months have passed.
That’s where artificial turf comes in. As experts in synthetic lawns, Turf King has plenty of options to transform your outdoor space for year-round appeal. No more time spent mowing your lawn, managing the mud, or avoiding your waterlogged lawn. That means you’ll get far more chance to get out there and enjoy your garden on those rare winter sun breaks.
Artificial grass isn’t just good for you – it’s good for the whole family. Children and pets are no longer limited to patio areas of indoor play with grass that’s usable year-round. Muddy footprints and paw prints can be a thing of the past, whatever the weather outside.
Why go for artificial turf to winter-proof your garden? Here are just a few of the top reasons to invest in a fake lawn ready for the seasonal change:
Artificial without looking fake
One of the most significant benefits of buying artificial turf from Turf King is the comprehensive range of turf choices available to suit your specific garden space. While your first association with fake grass might be the eye-watering neon greens found in cheaper or older ranges, today’s turf is far easier on the eye and subtle on the ground.
Combinations of several fibre lengths add great depth to artificial lawns, with browns and greens of different shades working together to produce a natural-looking result. From a distance, your turf will look 100% natural against your home – unless you take a look at your neighbour’s waterlogged, mud-filled lawns, that is. High density further adds to the realistic, comfortable experience of modern artificial lawns for that bouncy feel underfoot.
With a range of options from the Royal 40 to the Platinum Rise and affordable Royal 25c, there are plenty of choices to suit just about any household look or feel. If you’re serious about creating a picture-perfect look, the Ultra High-Density Royal 40 ticks all the boxes and looks like the real deal, while the one-of-kind Platinum Rise is incredibly soft on children and pets’ feet for use year-round.
No more maintenance
Many garden owners find maintenance to be less of a joy and more of a chore. This is especially true in winter when shorter days mean you’re spending your daylight hours maintaining your lawn space. Because winter and rain go together, natural turf often grows out of control during the colder months. While you could try and keep up with trimming and mowing, waterlogged and mud-filled gardens make maintenance even more difficult.
If you’re keen to have a green outdoor space without the ongoing headache of maintenance, artificial turf is the ideal balance. You get the beautiful lawn you’ve always wanted, and you can give away that mower in exchange for more hours spent enjoying the great outdoors. Trimming, edging, and standard maintenance aren’t required to keep your artificial lawn looking lush and beautiful year-round.
For pet owners and families with younger children, the low-maintenance nature of artificial turf is particularly valuable. Pet mess can simply be cleaned and hosed off, leaving your garden 100% safe for children to play in. Insects and other creepy crawlies are also far less likely to take up residence in artificial turf, making your low-maintenance garden a safe space for your kids and four-legged friends.
Mud-free fun year-round
Heavy rain means plenty of mud in the average garden. If you happen to have pets or kids, it’s unlikely that all that mud will stay outside – which means double the cleaning. By making your garden mud-free, you’re not just saving costs on cleaning supplies. Having outdoor space that’s safe and clean year-round can let kids and pets burn off that excess energy, keeping your home cleaner and everyone occupied.
Simple hose cleaning is often enough to keep artificial turf completely clean. Unlike natural grass, rain doesn’t lead to a muddy layer under the grass, which means that even the heaviest rainwater just serves to clean your artificial turf. If you want to have a garden that’s usable year-round without the fear of muddy messes, going fake is the best choice for your home.
In addition to not gathering mud, artificial grass is also faster-drying than typical grass. With excellent drainage, the roots of your turf aren’t left bogged down in water. This means your grass is less slippery and will be clean and dry in the sun in no time. Warmer turf underfoot is always welcome, especially when your lawn is made from super-soft materials.
