Artificial Grass … the Red Carpet of the Lawn World

Artificial Grass … the Red Carpet of the Lawn World

The ongoing hot and dry conditions across South Africa bring water scarcity sharply back into focus. Some cities are suffering more than others, and in Gauteng, Pretoria is always a few degrees hotter than Johannesburg. The hotter the weather, the more damage your lawn can sustain and the more care it will need to survive a long, hot, Pretoria summer.

If the health of your lawn has you more stressed out than the Pretoria traffic or frantically paging through the local Pretoria newspapers in search of a solution, relax. The answer is on your doorstep at Top Carpets & Floors’ Pretoria branch: Artificial grass! Artificial grass is the ideal solution when water scarcity does not allow you the luxury of a perfectly manicured and watered lawn all year round. In fact, artificial grass requires not a single drop of water!

That is not all. Here are six other notable benefits of artificial grass:

  1. Artificial grass provides the beautiful, natural appearance of real lawn throughout the year without watering, mowing or having to worry about insects and fertiliser. In other words, you have a striking garden, a perfect lawn, and no maintenance! This is great news for customers who live in water-hungry hot spots like Pretoria, for example. You will have your neighbours scratching their heads, wondering how you are able to keep your lawn that perfect amidst the relentlessness of a hot Pretoria summer.
  2. You will not find a more maintenance-free landscaping solution anywhere. This is great news for anyone who loves their garden, but would also love more time to enjoy it, instead of always working at keeping it in tip-top shape.
  3. Artificial lawn is not only for gardens. If you have been out and about with the family in Pretoria, you will have seen artificial grass in indoor landscaped areas, on children’s playgrounds and at indoor sporting facilities. You name the space and we have an artificial grass solution for it! Did you know rooftop gardens are a really popular application for artificial grass? Many of our customers who are golf fanatics dedicate a portion of their artificial grass installation to improving their game too, which is a smart move!
  4. Customers are always impressed with the various textures and variations of green available – there is something to suit every taste and application.
  5. Artificial grass loves heavy traffic and pets. So, no more shady, patchy areas where lawns traditionally suffer, like next to the pool or in children’s play areas. By installing artificial grass, you not only instantly have a beautiful lawn again, but you also cut down drastically on mud and grass being traipsed into the house. Now that is clever turf
  6. Just like choosing a carpet, it is exciting to go shopping for outdoor carpet – your artificial grass. You will find that there are a lot of options and you can choose between different colours, textures and thicknesses.

By having a good idea of what you want out of artificial grass, one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants at Top Carpets & Floors can help you choose the perfect artificial grass to suit your needs.
