Joanna Tovia added this to Turf Wars: 7 Myths Busted About Artificial Lawn7 November 2016

Myth 1. It’s not environmentally friendlyFalse: Once it’s installed, an artificial-turf lawn doesn’t require the maintenance inputs of real lawn. This means no petrol for lawnmowers, no fertiliser and no pesticides that could create run-off or leach into groundwater. Artificial turf also doesn’t require the water use to keep a real lawn green, especially in the height of summer or drought.Some people like to water their artificial lawn in the summer to cool it down, but Dan Mackay of Ministry of Ground in New Zealand says that this uses nowhere near the volume that a thorough watering would take to keep real grass green in the dry of summer.

The sloping roof to the west of the property provides a longer period of daylight to be enjoyed by the family and also captures the view of neighbouring trees.

outdoor kitchen is an ideal fit for a smaller space and still sheltered from the weather & connecting outdoors with the indoors too
