The Difference Between Astro Turf and Fake Grass

There are plenty of options to choose from in regards of artificial grass in Bedfordshire. However, you may come across terms such as “fake grass” and “astro turf” and it’s important to know the differences between the two. In this article we will go into both and explain the differences, helping you decide which best suits your needs. Explaining Artificial Grass Artificial grass is basically a carpet of green synthetic fibres with the purpose of replacing the real grass on your lawn. Nowadays, artificial grass is the common umbrella term used for all kinds of manufactured grass and is interchangeable with other terms like artificial turf, synthetic turf and synthetic grass. Astro Turf Astro turs is another form of synthetic grass but hardly anyone uses this term unless they are referring to the product called Astro Turf. Astro Turf is not a general term, but it is a branded product manufactured in the USA. Often used on outdoor sports areas such as tennis courts and football fields. Fake Grass Fake grass is a general term used for all the manufactured grass and it was once used favourably in the market but as Astro Turf is hardly used now, the term ‘fake grass’ is also used less often now. Hence, there is no need to call it fake grass when referring to the modern artificial grass. Reasons to buy green artificial grass Our artificial grass comes in a variety of styles and lengths and when compared to natural grass people can hardly tell the difference. One of the main reasons people make the switch to artificial grass is because it’s very low maintenance. As our grass doesn’t grow there’s no need to water or cut it, saving both water and power.

The Benefits of Using Artificial Grass in Your Garden

The best part of gardening is when you can finally sit back, relax and just observe the beauty you have created. Unfortunately, most people live a busy and hectic lifestyle, meaning they have less time to put into gardening. With little attention and maintenance your gardens appearance can dwindle, your plants die and your lawn yellow. If you’re one of these busy people, don’t worry, in this article we will explain the benefits of changing to artificial grass and how it can help you create the garden of your dreams. Maintenance – One of the main benefits of artificial grass is that it requires very little maintenance to remain looking lush and vibrant. Natural grass takes a lot of work, you’ve got to water, fertilize and cut it to make sure it stays healthy and green. Whereas artificial grass requires almost no maintenance, you may need to wash it every now and then, especially if you have pets, but other than that it will remain green all year round. Environmentally Friendly – As mentioned above, artificial grass doesn’t grow, therefore doesn’t need watering. Not only does this save you water but because it doesn’t grow there’s no need for fertilizers, making it more environmentally friendly than natural grass. Long lasting – Made from tough polyethylene, polypropylene and polyamide yarns our lawns can withstand a lot of punishment from heavy footfall to active children and pets. We are so certain that our lawns can endure whatever you have planned, be it a garden party, family gathering or just general use that we offer a 10-year guarantee.  Made with the summer in mind, our lawns are UV resistant meaning they wont fade, even in the hottest of summers.
