Carpetright Artificial Grass Garden Transformation

A few weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to makeover... or err, fakeover my mum's garden with a little help from Carpetright and their new artificial grass range

For years we've had a mass concrete rear garden through the practicality of keeping pet dogs and fostering lots of different abandoned pooches over the years.  Although a completely concrete garden isn't picture perfect and certainly won't be gaining any re-pins on Pinterest, it was practical for the dogs and a lot easier to keep tidy than a grassy green, botanical garden. Let's face it, cleaning up dog poop is a lot easier to wash from a concrete surface than picking it up from a grass bed - I never thought I'd be chatting dog sh*t quite literally on my blog, yet here I am!

Don't let this cute little face fool you; within five minutes of being on the brand, spanking new artificial grass, she pooped on it. Luckily, it's actually ridiculously easy to wipe clean after any mishaps from troublesome pups like this one, or any other food and drink spillages that may occur.

The artificial grass we used to transform my mum's garden space was the Pembroke product, which retails at £26.99 per square metre. Whilst it's at the more expensive end of the range, the quality of it is obvious, even to someone who wouldn't necessarily declare themselves a faux grass expert, AKA. me! It's a lot thicker than a lot of other artificial ranges, meaning it should be a lot more hard-wearing due to its density - in fact, it's so thick and heavy it took three people to actually lift it from the truck and into the garden. One thing that is worth bearing in mind is that if you do decide to transform a reasonably large space, it's best to not do it alone as the sheer weight of the grass is much more than you'd ever imagine!

If you do have grass in your own garden, you'll know the woes that comes with the upkeep of mowing your lawn, especially during the summer months. Whether you're lazy (like me) or if you're not physically able to keep up with maintaining a needy garden, it's a great solution to an easy picturesque outdoor retreat in your home.

The transformation from the concrete jungle to this grassy, green little space has truly helped make our garden so much more enjoyable just in time for the summer months. Ever since the Carpetright artificial grass was laid, we've found ourselves actually using the garden as a typical garden - we've been sitting outside, eating, drinking and enjoying the sunshine, because it's just so much more pleasant to surrounded by a beautifully green space.

Here's to many more days basking in my mum's brand new garden whilst this wonderful weather *hopefully* sticks around!

  1. My mum got fed up with her patch lawn so just replaced it with fake grass too!

  2. I keep badgering my husband to have fake grass at the front of the house - if you get a good enough quality one, it can actually look very realistic. Plus it saves time having to cut every couple of weeks in the summer!

  3. I love the idea of no more mowing the lawn, and no more waiting for it to dry before the children can play.

  4. I always liked the idea of faux grass. I definitely think it's a good idea for the right person. Also..I HATE mowing the lawn and tend to let it grow into a forest before it gets cut! Haha
