Drought:fake grass replaces lawn

Climate Change, Lawns

Fake grass  is proving more popular as gardeners despair of keeping their lawns green during the current hose-pipe ban.

Experts suggest that in the future lawns will become a sign of ‘moral decadence’ as frequent droughts in the South East will make it unacceptable to use a huge amount of water for upkeep.

As well as fake grass gardeners are also using hardier grasses, mosses and clovers that need less maintenance and are better for insects.


If you live in or near London and are thinking of buying  fake grass then check out  http://www.thefakegrasscompany.co.uk/.

Gary and his team have a great range of quality fake grass at competitive prices plus they offer an excellent service and delivery options.

The fake grass company also has an intriguing display of “fake animals” that are for sale to really bring your grass to life – just like this very realistic sheep.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.

  1. Artificial Grass Says:

    Fake grass does away with much of the relentless consumption of hungry lawns: water usage, fertilizing and mowing power, for example. But it is a plastic-based product reliant on oil for its production. And it doesn’t offer the biodiversity of a living lawn. However, new turfs are in development that use recycled bottles for their core material.
