Synthetic or Natural Lawn
How to choose between synthetic and natural lawn
A lot of Synthetic grasses have come onto the market in recent years, some of them so realistic looking that it is hard to pick the difference until you get up close, especially if you’re a bit short sighted!
Synthetic grass is made from plastic and cleverly woven into a rubber underlay with all sorts of different textures, lengths and subtle blends of colour. You can still buy the cheap and nasty gear, but like many other things you get what you pay for.
There are some situations where synthetic is a good choice over natural; where you can not get natural lawn to grow such as roof tops, balconies and heavily shaded areas, indoor sports areas or areas you just can not get a mower to. Synthetic is pricy to install and even though they are called low maintenance they are not no maintenance, you will need to keep them clean from moss & animal excretes, weeds and leaves and dirt that blow in.
