As an almost-homeowner (our building starts this week, FINALLY), we’re definitely becoming more eco-conscious and more concerned with sustainability. In the house we’ll be using solar-power for the most part and will have tanks for water, and we’ll have our recycling bins set up in our scullery. It figures that with all of the efforts we’re taking, we’d be looking at something more sustainable for our garden.
I am in NO WAY a gardener. I have the anti-green thumb, if anything. To the point where my hubby has now asked me to stop tampering with various pot plants and stay as far away as possible. Pretty much every plant I touch dies! That’s where the idea of artificial grass comes in for me.
With the constant threat of water shortages and water restrictions, artificial grass is becoming vastly more popular than homeowners attempting to grow and maintain a regular lawn. The trick is finding a company that provides you with a natural looking, good quality product – and Nouwens Carpets does this! Thanks to Nouwens Carpets, you can have a year-round, beautiful green lawn, with little-to-no maintenance and you won’t waste our country’s precious water reserves.
Along with less water usage, you don’t have to worry about seeding, planting, weeding or mowing, and (the benefit that strikes me the most) NO ALLERGY-CAUSING GRASS POLLEN! I can’t tell you how much I suffer with hay fever, so this would be an absolute blessing.
Nouwens Carpets have a range of 7 different kinds of artificial turf, with different shades and textures, making it suitable for many different areas – commercial and business gardens, as well as putting greens. The Nouwens artificial turf also comes with an eight year UV warranty, something very few other companies offer.
This artificial grass idea seems SO ideal – proof that the grass really can be greener.
Now for the exciting part! Nouwens has decided to give one of my lucky reader’s the chance to win Kikuyu turf to the value of R6250 – this includes installation, and equals 10m squared of the beautiful artificial grass.
