Winter is a great time to lay artificial grass, you may be at the point of disagreeing, however, we truly believe this is the best time of the year. We’re going to spend some time in this blog explaining why. What’s great is that in winter we won’t be too busy to come and install it for you because during the summer we’re fairly up against it. We still have plenty to do, but we’re nowhere near as hectic as we are in the summer months.
A better, softer more pliable grass lawn
in winter there’s very little in the way of shrubs or overhanging plants, which makes the artificial grass installation easier to deal with. The ground is also soft and pliable at this time of year, making it more straightforward and much quicker to install.
Better to have it installed in winter so you can have it sooner and enjoy it all year round
Remember at this time of year your garden won’t be as heavily used as it would be in the spring or summer months. After you’ve had artificial grass installed we advise people to stay off the lawn until it’s settled (this isn’t that long), which is much easier in the colder months than in summer when your family will be wanting to spend more time in it.
Easier to look after and much nicer to spend time on once it’s down
Once you’ve had artificial grass installed you’ll find that winters from this point forward will make the maintenance side of your garden so much easier. You’ll also find that you’ll be able to use it more frequently because it doesn’t require as much maintenance as natural grass and it doesn’t clog with water. This is because as long as you have a permeable surface beneath it will always drain better than conventional grass lawns. There’ll be no more mud and grass being dragged in either because even in winter artificial grass doesn’t come away, so half your lawn won’t come in with you.
