Now, more than ever, we are becoming increasingly concerned about ways in which we can improve our health and wellbeing – not to mention our impact on the environment. It is no secret that enjoying the great outdoors is beneficial for both our mental and physical health, but have you considered how an artificial lawn can improve your wellbeing?
Lots of recent studies have shown that spending time in green spaces make us happier. The beauty of an artificial lawn is that it provides a green space that you can enjoy all year round. No matter the season, an artificial lawn is always green and inviting. It does not get muddy when it rains, nor does it become dry and uncomfortable in drier periods. That means you can reap the health benefits of having a lush, green space to relax in and recuperate whatever the season. What more of an incentive do you need to get outside and enjoy the fresh air?
Save The Planet!
Natural lawns often require an application of fertiliser or other chemicals to stay healthy. These can be harmful to humans, animals and the environment. However, with an artificial lawn, this is never the case. Most spills, stains or debris can be cleaned away with an application of hot, soapy water or a quick once over with the garden hose. This is much more environmentally friendly and minimises the amount of harmful chemicals that drain through lawns into the water supply, potentially damaging wildlife and polluting the environment.
What’s more, as you do not need to use any specialised tools on your Newlawn (just water and a stiff brush) you can get rid of any petrol-powered tools, such as your lawn-mower or strimmer, which will reduce your carbon footprint significantly, not to mention bring costs down for you in the future!
There are many reasons why an artificial lawn is safer than a natural lawn. One of these reasons (and perhaps the biggest for ouranimal-loving customers) is that your dog, or pet, is less likely to pick up diseases such as the potentially fatal lungworm – or even ticks or fleas – from an artificial lawn.
On a human level, artificial lawns are much safer because they do not get muddy during periods of heavy rain, which greatly minimises the risk of any trips or slips, particularly in elderly individuals. Maintenance is also safe and easy, eliminating the need to use tools like strimmers or lawn mowers, which can be hazardous if not used correctly.
