Creative Gardens for Urban Living

Urban living is a necessity for many people, and while Warrington may not be a major metropolis, there are places where space is at a premium. What do you do, then, if you want the beauty and convenience of a garden with a lawn – perhaps you have a small yard you would like to do something different with – yet don’t have the time or inclination to indulge in the maintenance that grass requires? The answer is simple and surprisingly affordable: you invest in artificial grass! Not convinced? Read on for more on the benefits of this clever solution.

Take the Strain out of Gardening

We know what it’s like; the constant need to mow the lawn, weed the borders and generally spend a lot of your spare time tending to your garden is a chore. Well, not when you have an artificial grass lawn. Many homeowners in and around Warrington are waking up the benefits of this excellent and affordable solution, and now have beautiful, stylish lawns that are picture perfect and offer a space in which to relax and enjoy that much earned time away from work. It’s not just the look that you are buying, however, for the amazing durability of artificial grass is something that cannot be overlooked.

Artificial grass requires very little maintenance; as it doesn’t grow it never needs cutting, and it will last a long time thanks to being hardy and designed for regular use. You want to hold a barbecue or picnic on your new lawn? No problem, for artificial grass is perfect for hosting parties and gatherings (although care is recommended when using a barbecue, as is always the case for safety purposes). In fact, you just treat it like a normal lawn, but one that comes without the hassle. What if you don’t have a yard or garden, perhaps thanks to living in a high-rise apartment? We have the answer to that, too!

Add Some Life to Your Outdoor Space | Where to Buy Artificial Grass?

Are you looking for ways to improve the use of your garden? Or perhaps you have a yard that is doing nothing and could lend itself to something better? Then there are balconies and roof terraces, both areas that are often neglected when it comes to usage. Well, we have the answer: why not make use of quality, affordable and durable artificial grass to improve any outdoor space? As the leading name in fake turf in the Warrington areas we are the people you need to talk to, and we can help you with ideas and designs to make the most of your unused areas.

Bring the Pub Home!

When the sun finally shines in Warrington we are quick to head to the pub, and enjoy a couple of cold beers in the local beer garden. This gave us an idea: why not have your own beer garden at home? You could utilise that small outdoor area – or a part of your garden – and install a pub-style table, with perhaps an umbrella or gazebo, and also the perfect floor covering: artificial grass! Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy a relaxing drink with family or friends in the comfort of your own specially created space? It’s a bit like an outdoor man-cave, only even more fun!

Why is artificial grass the ideal flooring for your home beer garden? Natural grass is great, but if you are going to be using the same area frequently, as you will when you create your beer garden, it will quickly become worn and tired-looking. This means maintenance, which means money spent, and that’s something you want to avoid. Artificial grass is just as beautiful as the natural variety, yet it required next to no maintenance. It is durable and lasts a long time, is designed to stand up to heavy footfall, and is easy to clean. Simply wash down with a mild detergent to wash away those spillages, or get the hoover out and give it a quick once-over!

Affordable and Beautiful

Although artificial grass continues to increase in popularity – at Artificial Grass Warrington we have helped many satisfied clients furnish their gardens and open spaces with high quality grass from our choice of types – there are many myths surrounding its use. First, it is surprisingly cost-effective, and not absurdly expensive as many will tell you. Consider the lack of maintenance over the years in comparison to that required with a natural grass lawn, and you begin to see the benefits in the long term.

Where to Buy Artificial Grass

Then there are people who will tell you that they can spot a fake lawn a mile off; we will happily supply you with samples so that you can see this is not the case, and with many satisfied clients throughout the Warrington area we are sure you will also be impressed. Put simply, artificial grass is as beautiful as the alternative, is more durable and lends itself perfectly to an area that will be used frequently, such as a picnic area or your own home beer garden.

Wildlife and Artificial Lawns – No Need to Worry! | Pet-friendly Artificial Grass

Some people will tell you that installing an artificial lawn, an option that is rapidly becoming more popular in and around the Warrington area, means losing the wildlife that visits your garden. We can tell you that this is not the case! A fake lawn may mean that birds can no longer dig for worms, but there are many things you can do to encourage them to keep visiting your garden. It’s all about being creative, and understanding what birds – and other wildlife – need and want in a garden.

Pet-friendly Artificial Grass

Artificial lawns are becoming more popular for a variety of reasons; people with small outdoor areas – perhaps a yard or balcony – and using this innovative method to create a lush green garden where one may not be expected, for example. Furthermore, in these days of busy working lives and little spare time, the easy maintenance of artificial grass cannot be overstated. Indeed, if you have such small outdoor space you may be surprised at ways on which you can encourage birds to your garden, while enjoying the benefits of the artificial lawn and your new-found garden!

Invite Birds to Your Artificial Lawn

First, let us assure you that your artificial grass will not deter birds; of course, they can no longer dig in it, but what about other areas of the garden? If you do have borders then there is plenty of opportunity for birds to forage among the soil and plants for food, and they can be encouraged to do so by planting the relevant plants that produce fruit the birds eat. In the Warrington area there are many species of birds that may visit domestic gardens, so it is worth researching what they eat, and what may attract them to your garden.

One of the advantages of artificial grass is that it does away with the need to use pesticides; this can be hugely beneficial when it comes to attracting wildlife. Your garden will be poison-free at all times, and will therefore provide a safe haven not just for birds, but also for other wildlife. It really is a great option if you want a maintenance free garden and one that looks beautiful all year-round, and you may be surprised to find out how affordable artificial grass can be, and how it will save you money in the long run too.

Provide a Safe Sanctuary

Even if you have a small area or a balcony you can still attract birds to your garden, and the provision of nesting areas – in safe spots away from the reach of cats – is one method of doing so. How great would it be to watch birds fledge from your artificial lawn, close and personal? It’s a wonder of nature, and by turning your small unused area into a bird haven you are helping the world of wildlife thrive in your area.

Water is another necessary addition; a bird bath is a great addition to any garden, no matter the size, and will sit perfectly on a lush fake lawn, and there are many designs you can choose from to suit any space. Pots and planters for insect life and further food also add colour and variety to your garden or balcony, and are an affordable way of keeping your space full of life and enjoyable to observe.

Enjoying Nature

The availability of quality, beautiful artificial grass has in fact created outdoor spaces suitable for birds that were not there before. The aforementioned balconies and roof terraces are a welcome bonus and give valuable outdoor space to both residents and birds, and encouraging nature to thrive is to be celebrated. At Artificial Grass Warrington we are happy to provide you with advice and help regarding the most suitable type of artificial lawn for your available space, and we can also offer expert garden design services, so you can make the best us of the area in question.

We will happily supply you with samples of our top quality artificial grass so you can see exactly what we supply, so why not get in touch right now and one of our friendly and professional team will arrange to visit and provide you with a free, no obligation quote.

How to Lay Artificial Grass | Laying Artificial Turf

Laying an artificial lawn is becoming very popular. Not only is it easier to maintain than natural grass, but it is long-lasting and suitable for heavy use. It’s also easy to clean, and is great if you have dogs – who can no longer dig holes in it – or kids, who will love to play on it. So, how to lay artificial grass? Let’s have a look at some useful tips.

What Base for Artificial Grass?

The first consideration is that of where you are laying your artificial grass. If it is replacing a natural lawn, that needs to be removed in advance. It is not advisable to leave existing grass in place, as this will cause rotting in some cases. It is also wise to remove a layer of the topsoil once the turf has been removed, as you will need to lay sand in its place (more of that a little later on). You will need to compact the remaining soil so that it is smooth, in order to provide the best base to lay the sand.

What Sand for Artificial Grass?

It is important that you use the right type of sand, and the right quantity, when laying your artificial grass. The type recommended by professionals such as Artificial Grass Warrington, the leading name in the North West, is sharp sand, available from your local building supplies stockists. This should be laid in place of the topsoil to be removed, and should be compacted. For small areas, you can simply use a spade or shovel, but for larger, it is recommended you hire an industrial compactor for a better job.

What Depth Artificial Grass?

The recommendation is that you remove up to 35mm of topsoil, and replace this with the sharp sand. Next, you need to lay a weed membrane on top of the sand. This will keep back any weeds that may grow underneath, and is essential for the long life of the artificial lawn. You can buy this at your local hardware store or garden centre. Once this is all done, you can roll out your artificial grass, allowing excess for trimming for a perfect fit, and set in place with the appropriate fixings.

What Does Artificial Grass Get Laid On?

The above are details on laying artificial grass in place of an existing lawn; it can also be used elsewhere to great effect. You can lay artificial grass on a patio for an interesting effect, and it can be helped by laying underfelt underneath. Many people take this a step further and turn smaller balconies into outdoor garden areas. Artificial grass can also be laid on decking – usually on a temporary basis, and it has been used to turn flat roofs into garden areas. For the latter, it is important to make sure the roof is suitable, but it can make an impressive use of generally wasted space.
