Artificial Grass is for Everyone…Literally

Creating a wildlife friendly garden

When you have an artificial lawn installed, it does not mean that you have to say goodbye to the variety of creatures that would otherwise visit your garden. Especially during the colder months, animals will struggle to find food, however even with an artificial lawn you can still give them a helping hand and possibly somewhere to live in your garden.

To attract birds, who would usually look for worms or other insects living in a natural lawn, why not try making fat balls to keep their energy reserves high over winter? These are easily made using a mixture of suet, oats, seeds or nuts, and rolled into a ball which is then hung in your garden. Bird boxes placed on trees or in quiet areas of your garden can also be hugely beneficial when it comes to nesting season.

To provide a home for insects such as ladybirds and bees, place an assortment of twigs, leaves, rolled up paper or hollow reeds inside a wooden box or an open bird feeder and hang in your garden. This is ideal for people with artificial lawns who would still like to protect many endangered species of insects, giving them somewhere safe to live whilst you enjoy your artificial lawn throughout the whole year round.

Finally, it may be worth considering leaving a small corner of your garden wild, if you have the space to do so. By leaving a small space untended to, you are providing a sanctuary for birds, insects, and other small mammals such as hedgehogs in an otherwise pristine and well-maintained garden.

There are many other ways of keeping your garden nature friendly when you have an artificial lawn installed, even in the smallest of spaces. If you have any other questions about how an artificial lawn would be beneficial to you and your garden, be sure to contact Artificial Grass of Derbyshire who would be happy to help, even visiting your garden to discuss its suitability. Artificial Grass of Derbyshire also provides pet-friendly artificial grass suitable for dogs and cats, why not read our other blog post about pet friendly lawns here?

These images were kindly supplied by a customer of ours who we supplied with 100 sqm of Prestige 37mm artificial grass. The majority of our projects are fully installed by Artificial Grass Derbyshire but in this case the customer was very confident in their own abilities and have indeed laid a very lovely new artificial lawn.

These guys have done a fantastic job of our artificial lawn. We did consider doing it ourselves as it’s a small area but so glad we went with them. They were very reasonably priced and the finish is to the highest of standards. They even looked at the overall finish of the garden project and put more of the gravel core down to higher the lawn so the overall finished effect is perfect. Not even worth attempting the job ourselves.We went with the willow lawn and it’s very soft and natural looking. Would highly recommend the business and lawn.

Paul Emery - artificial willow lawn looks brilliant. Fitting of lawn was professional and meticulous. Delivery was received at the time advised and fitting completed within time advised. Maintenance advice for the lawn from Chris was most helpful. A positive experience from initial quote to the end result of a perfect looking lawn. Would definitely use Artificial Grass Derbyshire again.
