When I’ve been walking around the estate recently, I’ve noticed that artificial grass seems to be a lot more common on people’s front lawns. It got me thinking about why we choose to have it and why we like to have pristine front gardens (here in middle-class, British suburbs anyway!)
Is it a statement?
‘I want my garden to represent how I put myself across.’
Is it the same as wearing a suit to an interview?
Do the same people choose to have artificial grass in their back gardens too?
I imagine maintaining a lawn is time-consuming and strenuous. Lawnmowers and gardening equipment can break and be expensive.
Is it simply a short-cut?
You could invest in artificial grass that you never have to cut again. Perhaps, it’s expensive initial investment because it saves you time and money in the long term.
What short-cuts can you take in your life today?
