Benefits flow

MUCH has been said about the advantages and disadvantages of artificial lawn.

I would not know why a council would disapprove of a resident having artificial lawn on their verge when it looks so nice.

I am pleased that I live in a suburb where our council not only approves of artificial grass on the verge but also it has put it around the public areas of our local shopping area.

It has been there a few years now and looks as good as the day it was put there; that was one of the reasons I decided to have artificial lawn on our front lawn and the narrow verge.

As we were on reticulated scheme water on a time clock, watering twice a week, we found that it was impossible to have a nice lawn.

It was also impossible to water the narrow verge without wasting water on the road.

Therefore, with artificial lawn we are also doing our bit to conserve water.
