They are a great option when it comes to boarding your artificial lawn, but are also valuable for a variety of landscaping designs.

Then, if it is not given the time that it needs to recover, it will pretty soon start looking like Shrek’s swamp!
Most children like to play football or catch in their garden but, the lawn damage from ball games is the worst, especially things like muddy patches from where the grass has worn down and stopped growing completely.
