Drought:fake grass replaces lawn

Sat, Apr 21, 2012

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.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.

  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.
