effort to maintain. Now I know all you natural turf lovers may turn your nose up at the mere thought of fake grass but the fact of the matter is that the
wave of popularity with the trend can't be ignored. In the USA artificial lawns are big business. Here in the UK there has been an explosion of popularity. You may think the main reason for
exchanging a real lawn for a synthetic surface is to save time and money on the routine maintenance but in fact the most popular reason is the benefit of having an all year round playing surface for

The new generation of fake or false grass products is the "3G” or third generation. New technology and yarns have superseded the illumines green carpet of old. Artificial grass often generically called Astroturf by the general public has been developed in an array of styles. Colour, density and length are the main differences between these products but all are made with the same fine yarns and quality in product and manufacture are equal. It has to be said though that there are drawbacks from having an artificial grass surface installed, but I will give my counterstatement against these as I do believe they are just. Worms won't live under the surface. This will deprive our native birds of their morning feast of lawn worms I agree, but it won't stop them from visiting the lawn borders especially if there is mulch for them to search for insects. I love to see Blackbirds and Thrushes searching for worms so I have invested in a wormery or Vermicompost More expensive than maintaining a natural lawn. Yes I agree but over the lifetime of the surface the quality of time gained from not having to maintain the lawn is priceless and for me time has a greater value than cost. Does heat up in very hot weather. I agree, but only with extreme conditions and direct sunlight. Sandals or flip-flops is the obvious answer just as one would were on a sunny beach. Only has a life expectancy of 15/20 years. Yes I agree. I expect to last around the same time and by then I wont be concerned about replacing it. If I move home I can always take it with me.
