The green, green fake grass of home – Town Grass Blog
Nice to see earlier in the year that a writer in the Telegraph (Judith Woods) has gone for an artificial grass garden. She commented on how great it was for children and pets, how low maintenance it was, and how much more her family have used the garden since they had an artificial grass lawn installed. Various quotes from her article include “At my lawn-warming party, everyone took their shoes off without even being asked and gasped in amazement at the luxuriant softness; it wasn’t bristly, it wasn’t even plasticy, in fact it felt deceptively like real grass” and “When everyone’s tucked up in bed at night, I creep down, turn on the kitchen light and admire it. In the mornings, waiting for the kettle to boil, I smile at it.”
We agreed entirely with her praise and optimism for artificial grass.. until she revealed that she spent £29.99 a square metre for her lawn and then had’ “sand laid down on top to keep it weighed down.” Alas, she should have gone to Town Grass. She would have saved half her money, and we would not have spread sand all over her nice new lawn.
Our artificial grass is superior to most on the market – we do not put sand in it to ‘weigh it down.’ Our grasses are designed to be a realistic imitation of natural grass, not to mention the difference in price. Thankfully, our customers are discerning people.
