How Artificial Grass Can Help with Hay Fever

How Artificial Grass Can Help with Hay Fever

According to research by the MET Office, 1 in 5 people in the UK suffer from hay fever, which is when a person’s immune system overreacts to allergens in the air. What’s more, 95% of hay fever sufferers are allergic to grass pollen, which is at its peak between May and July; just when you want to be out enjoying the sunshine! If you suffer from hay fever, you’ll know that symptoms include sneezing, a runny nose, red/itchy/watery eyes and swelling. We might be able to help, by offering a variety of artificial grass.

While installing artificial grass won’t actually cure your hay fever, it will certainly help to reduce your exposure to grass pollen in your garden. This will make it easier to sit out and enjoy that sunshine during BBQ season, without the unpleasant symptoms. There are various other benefits to installing artificial grass, including the fact that you won’t have to use pesticides or fertilisers and you’ll save a fortune on your water bill.

Our range of options can suit your unique needs. You can choose from Elise, Meadow, Eclipse and Vision. Each of these products have their own individual pros and cons; they are available in various tones, as well as different grass pile heights and density. Regardless of your choice, artificial grass will give you a low maintenance, freshly mowed look all year round.
