Here at Nomow we speak to many homeowners who are increasingly keen to fake it in the garden but it’s not just our lawns which are getting a synthetic makeover…John Lewis has recently revealed that it saw a 71% increase in sales of fake flowers in the first two months of 2015, compared to the same period last year.
While artificial grass and fake flowers may have once had a bad reputation, they have since made a huge comeback. Gone are the days of ‘AstroTurf’ and the tacky, dusty silk petals of artificial flowers – new technology now means they look and feel much more like the real thing.
There are many reasons why homeowners are turning their back on natural greenery, including poor results with the real thing and the need to save time, money and water on upkeep. Increasingly busy modern lives mean that we now seek products that look better for longer, and stay the same 365 days a year without any the need for time consuming maintenance.
Artificial plants are also hypoallergenic – a helpful quality in Britain, where we have one of the most prevalent rates of hayfever in the world with around 12 million sufferers. As hayfever is mainly caused by grass pollen, replacing turf with artificial grass in your garden is a big step to reducing its effects.
Artificial grass has been around for decades but recent developments have meant that you can now choose from a range of designs, from a perfectly manicured lawn to exceptionally natural, almost wild appearance.
Artificial grass is now popping up everywhere from back gardens, to sports pitches and schools. Not only is it easy to maintain, it’s also child and pet-friendly and when you shop with Nomow it comes guaranteed for 5 years.
