MUCH has been said about the advantages and disadvantages of artificial lawn.
I am pleased 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 shopping area.
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.
