#PitchForAPitch Competition with Carpetright.
Have the lush green pitches during the Euro 2016 Football Championship in France, had you looking out the window at your own garden and wishing it could have a makeover?
This is exactly how I have been feeling, with some concrete shed building going on currently, our garden looks more like a building site than somewhere to sit and relax. Sunbathing would involve swallowing cement dust with every small breeze, and the grass we did have is mostly buried underneath building materials … a relaxing paradise it really is not right now.
We have big plans for our garden though, which will be well worth the wait. I can’t wait to finally be able to show you the transformation on here, as when Simon bought the house, the garden was a complete overgrown mess and even as a building site at the moment, it is a hundred times better than it was.
Personally I would love artificial grass – our own pitch for the boys – it is just so much easier to maintain. Imagine not having to have the grass cut, if you suffer from pretty chronic hay fever every year like me, then this would be amazing and a great step health wise.
Artificial grass stays green as well, no brown patches during a heat wave when there is a hosepipe ban, or after having the paddling pool on top of it. You also wouldn’t have bits of grass floating in your paddling pool for a nice change.
It is actually economical as well since it won’t need watering, or for you to spend money on the electric or fuel for the lawn mower. There would be no arguments over who uses the mower to cut it, or in my case being stuck indoors with the windows shut tightly whilst its being done. Possibly the only benefit to having hay fever.
Artificial grass can also be space saving as well, since you won’t need anywhere to store your lawn mower or grass feed, both of which you obviously won’t need.
There would be a lot less clothes washing, as mini football fans wouldn’t get muddy with their own artificial pitch. You also won’t get moaned at by the mini pro footballers for the grass being too long and affecting their ‘matches’. I can’t think why you wouldn’t want artificial grass to be honest.
If you feel the same way, then Carpetright have a fantastic competition for you. How about your own artificial grass for your garden, basically your own little pitch of perfection and some gorgeous garden furniture to sit on to admire it?
