Here’s why you should consider installing synthetic lawn this winter.
There’s no doubt that winter is on its way. The days are shorter, the temperature has dropped and the rain has started to fall.
Winter can also be a time when we don’t get to spend as much time out in our backyard because of the miserable weather that comes with it.
Heavy rainfall can leave puddles everywhere which then can become mud, and the lawn begins to grow like crazy, making your backyard look like it’s not been maintained.
The good news is that it’s not just you. In fact, most of us find it harder to maintain our natural lawn during the cooler months.
The last thing you want to do when you get home from work in winter is go out in the cold and mow the lawn. To make matters worse, the night sky has usually set in by the time you get home, meaning you’ll have to contend with the dark as well.
Less time spent maintaining your lawn means more time spent making the most of those sunny winter days when they come around.
Installing artificial grass also means gone are the days of kids and pets bringing mud all through the house! Best of all, it looks good all year round no matter the weather.
Australian Outdoor Living’s range of synthetic lawn consists of four types: Fairway, Augusta, Savannah Broad Leaf and Multisport.
The Fairway range is very realistic, has a short pile height and is specifically suited for areas with high traffic. The Augusta has a taller pile height and has brown curly thatching to make it impressively realistic looking.
The Savannah Broad Leaf range features a wider blade of grass which is designed to be similar looking to many Australian grasses, with its olive/brown curly thatching. It also boasts the highest pile height and density within our range.
Lastly, we have the Multisport range. It’s designed for high amounts of traffic, making it perfect for those with an active family.
It’s great for most sports that you might play in your backyard and can also be adapted for commercial use.
No matter which type of lawn you choose, installing synthetic turf comes with three main benefits.
1. No maintenance
With winter comes rain, and when the rain begins to fall the lawn generally starts to grow out of control.
The days are getting shorter and for most of us it’s almost dark by the time we are getting home from work, leaving no time to mow or maintain the lawns.
The last thing you want to be doing is going out in the cold at night to maintain your natural lawn.
Synthetic lawn, unlike natural grass, requires no maintenance. No mowing, no trimming, and no edging.
Synthetic grass doesn’t grow, it simply retains its original height and continues to look great, no matter the season.
2. No mud
Real grass can get soiled and muddy during heavy rains.
There’s nothing worse when kids and pets go out on the lawn after it’s been raining and bring mud all through the house.
Synthetic lawn stays clean even in wet weather.
The water is efficiently drained from the artificial lawn through a multi-layered drainage system.
Having this drainage means that even in heavy rains, synthetic lawn remains fairly dry.
3. Synthetic lawn looks good!
Most importantly, your artificial grass will look good through the whole of winter without you having to lift a finger!
You won’t have to worry about mowing or fertilizers to make sure the grass grows evenly, there will be no brown patches where the grass may be getting less rain than other areas, and your grass won’t turn into mud.
Our range of artificial lawn requires minimal maintenance.
To keep it looking fantastic, simply rake it using a lightweight plastic fan-style rake or a strong bristled broom to help remove any debris or leaves on your lawn.
After that, a quick squirt with the garden hose will keep the lawn bristles looking clean and like they did the day it was first installed.
As with all our products, our friendly consultants will provide you with proper instructions and training on how to maintain your new synthetic lawn.
Before winter truly sets in, make sure you speak to a consultant from Australian Outdoor Living so you don’t have to worry about your lawn this winter.
