Artificial grass has become extremely popular across the UK, with homeowners across the country looking for a beautiful and low maintenance alternative to natural turf. Although the negative environmental impacts have been documented, two fellow horticulturalists want to inform consumers how most of the benefits attributed to artificial grass are simply incorrect or myths. Standing apart from other awareness campaigns, we want our #TimeForTurf campaign to offer solutions for both consumers, designers and landscaping contractors.
Specialising in garden design, Charlotte Howard reached out to me to discuss how we could make an impact on the cause we are both so passionate about. The #TimeForTurf campaign now offers everyone a free report that myth busts some of the claimed benefits and offers solutions for those looking for a solution that is easy to maintain.
In our recent podcast Charlotte said: “It is our responsibility to have a postive impact on the environment through how we design and build gardens. This campaign is to highlight just that” and I have to agree.
As a designer and landscaper myself it is all too easy to say yes to what the customer wants. However, as the years have gone on I have learnt that we need to inform our clients about the products they are having installed and the pros and cons. We also need to think about the future and the future depends on our environment.
The campaign offers designers and landscapers free, customisable resources to aid their conversation with clients when discussing artificial grass.
These are available here: https://thelandscaperscircle.co.uk/artificial-grass/
You can discover facts and join the conversation by searching #TimeForTurf on social media.
