Let’s start at the beginning. What is artificial grass, sometimes also referred to as artificial turf or fake grass?

Artificial grass is made using manmade fibres and yarns that are permanently dyed and trimmed to look like the real thing. It first came onto the market back in the 1960s but has recently seen a surge in popularity due to its lifelike look, low maintenance requirements and quality finish. It really can transform the look of your garden.

Since those early days and in keeping with the advancements in technological know-how, artificial grass has undergone developments that have seen it become progressively more realistic in its appearance. Today, at first glance, it is virtually indiscernible from natural grass. It is now used in many sports arenas and stadiums, and in residential areas and commercial gardens all over the world – especially where the growth and maintenance of real grass have proven difficult.

When considering installing artificial grass in Swansea, Cardiff, Newport or one of the other areas we service, residents should check out our collection at Fit my Floor online or in our Newport showroom. The artificial turf products held in stock are perfect for South Wales’ gardens and offer the following benefits.


No Need to Water

If you have a real lawn in your garden, you will need to water it regularly to ensure its growth and longevity. However, if you have fake or artificial grass, you won’t have to worry anymore as you will only need water during cleaning. Occasionally, you will need to hose the blades off to remove any standing dirt or debris. 

Low Maintenance

It hardly requires any maintenance. For many people, mowing their real grass lawns is a hateful chore. For the elderly, it can be overly physical. Artificial grass does away with the need!

All you need to do when tidying artificial grass is to remove large pieces of debris with a leaf blower or a stiff broom. But, never allow liquids like brake fluid or paint to come into contact with the synthetic surface as it will stain.

Doesn’t Require Fertiliser or Pesticide (Children & Animal Friendly)

Whereas real grass needs fertilising from time to time to encourage lush growth, artificial turf continues to look good without having to add nutrients or fertiliser. An added bonus is that children and animals can play freely on it, safe from harm by toxic chemicals. So why not start thinking about artificial grass for your home?

Shade Is Not An Issue

Whilst natural grass can fade and die in shaded areas, this is not the case with artificial grass. It does not require water and direct sunlight so it maintains its colour and size even in covered spaces. Hence, there’s no need to worry about any bald patches as your turf will always look nice and even.

Not sunlight dependant

Real grass needs adequate sunlight to prosper. Without it, it will fade and die. Synthetic turf does not have this dependency. It will retain its colour, and it looks good, even shady situations. Another consideration is that while real grass lawns can become patchy, their artificial equivalents remain intact.


Last but not least, there is the issue of durability. Real grass will become worn with regular footfall. Artificial grass in Swansea, Artificial grass in Newport, it will not, regardless of location. It has great durability, which is why many sports surfaces now utilise it. It also has excellent resistance to ultra-violet exposer, therefore retaining its colour.
