It is time to start rediscovering your favourite scarves and woolly jumpers (or buying new ones), and wrapping up warm every time you venture outside. Winter has arrived and the temperature has dropped decidedly. I think it was the greatest living British explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who said, “There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing” and I guess he was right.
We often get asked if our business is affected by the seasons, with many assuming that the Summer months would be the best time to have an artificial lawn installed.
Well, the reality is that we can fit our products all the year round and there are pros and cons, whatever the weather. In the Summer, we can enjoy the sunshine and the warmth of working outside; and in the Winter, the ground tends to be a little softer and easier to work. Without getting too technical, it really doesn’t matter to us.
What matters is your happiness!
The one thing we would say is that the lawn, whenever it is fitted, looks fresh, lush and evergreen all-year-round; is easy to manage and maintain, and never gives you mud, weed and cutting burdens. In the Summer it perfectly offsets the brightness of your flowerbeds and gives your family a safe, fun place to play, eat together and enjoy the sunny days. In the Winter it drains well, glistens beautifully in the frost and rain, maintains its deep lush colour while keeping muddy boots at bay.
Perhaps, if he was to venture around gardens in Solihull on one of his adventures, Sir Ranulph might say something like, “there is no such thing as bad weather, just an inappropriate surface for your garden lawn.”
What would he think of yours?
