Artificial grass is becoming more popular as a maintenance-free way to create an instant lawn for people who do not have time to spend in a traditional garden.
It is ideal for turfing shaded areas or gardens with pets as there is no mud generation, and it is easy to hose down to keep clean. Fake grass has latex backing with pre-punched drainage holes to prevent water logging. Artificial grass heights range from 20 to 38 millimetres, and there are various natural colours for sale including thatch to offer a more authentic appearance. The grass has UV protection to prevent fading in the sun. It is supplied in rolls of 2 and 4 metres wide, and lengths up to 25 metres on a single roll. Use joining tape and adhesive to make a uniform grass area even on odd-shaped lawns or for commercial spaces.
