But wait there is more……in addition, other requests by customers have included wanting to have newly laid ‘fake’ lawn have same effect as when you just cut real grass and there are alternating light and dark bands of grass. This too can be achieved…..ah marvels of modern society.
Once perceived as being exclusively for those at lower end of socioeconomic scale, time-and resource-poor, fake grass has now become stable for all regards of income bracket. With everyone becoming increasingly time-limited and wanting immediate results - ‘visual’ perfection – artificial grass answers both these requirements.
As already mentioned fake grass has many advantages being both low maintenance, cheap and providing reliable year-round good looks for those concerned with their gardens aesthetic appearance. Especially in areas where water is particularly scarce and or for areas whether there is heavy usage – i.e. constant foot traffic – then fake or artificial grass may provide a practical solution. What is more, with fake or artificial grass there is no limit to amount of area you wish to cover and up-keep is negligible especially when compared to requirements of real grass. Golfing greens require employ of a number of full-time ‘green keepers’ whose job it is to solely look after lawns!!!! For those without this luxury in budget or time alternative is clearly …….fake grass. No need for pesticides, watering, mowing, and replacing of dead patches etcetera.
While slow to catch on in many Westernized countries, Asian nations who are resource tight have long used fake grasses for their play-grounds, private lawns and commercial turfs. Furthermore, using fake grass removes threat of degradation by human or other pests. The laying of fake grass is also immediate – like that of carpet. Another advantage is that is does not have to be a permanent fixture but can be lifted at any time.
