Reasons artificial grass is perfect for wheelchair access

There has been a major shift in the way our society views how minority groups are welcomed into spaces, and that includes outdoor spaces. With so many health benefits to spending time outdoors and gardening, this is fantastic news for the more than 1.2 million individuals in the UK who utilise wheelchairs.

Natural grass, gravel, and wood chippings are popular options for garden landscaping, but for mobility-impaired individuals, it can be difficult to manoeuvre freely without these objects getting in the way. The solution is simple – artificial grass. Installing artificial turf provides a natural-looking alternative that’s durable and low maintenance.

Here are a few more reasons installing artificial grass is a great choice for making your outdoor space more accessible:

An Even Surface for All

Natural grass is notoriously uneven. Whether the ground is naturally uneven or rainfall has caused mud patches and dips, it’s a trip hazard for able-bodied individuals and a nightmare for wheelchair users. Before we install your artificial grass, our team works tirelessly to ensure the ground is flat and smooth. This creates an even surface that makes it easier for wheelchair users to move around and spend time enjoying their outdoor space.

It’s Durable

One of the downsides to having natural grass is that it can’t handle the stress of heavy foot traffic. Too many steps can leave your lawn with dead patches that are neither aesthetically pleasing nor easy to manoeuvre. Artificial grass is renowned for being durable and tough and is able to withstand the stress of countless footsteps, dogs running about and wheelchair traffic. It can last for years, providing a resilient surface that not only endures but ensures your backyard is a lush paradise for many years.

Low Maintenance

Natural turf requires regular maintenance in order for it to look great. Unfortunately, for mobility-impaired gardeners, this is not always an option, as regular trimming and pulling of weeds can be challenging. When you say goodbye to natural grass, you can also say goodbye to your lawn mower, as synthetic turf requires no mowing, and no weeds will creep through the surface. As a bonus, fake grass features an effective drainage system which allows you to easily hose it down if it is in need of a quick clean.

An Affordable Alternative

Installing artificial grass is cost-effective in the long run. With proper maintenance, your artificial lawn can last for years, ensuring your garden is green and clean 365 days a year! It also requires less maintenance and water, allowing you to save on your water bills and garden services.

Accessible Gardening

Wheelchair users and garden lovers will love this benefit! Traditionally, garden beds can be found at ground level. If you’re a wheelchair user, this is not the best place for your basil and thyme to be. Wheelchair-accessible raised garden beds can be wonderful to include in your garden, and artificial grass is a great option if you want it to blend effortlessly with these inclusions. This provides you with a garden that’s beautiful and accessible.

Artificial Grass is Always a Winner

If you’re searching for a natural grass alternative that’s low-maintenance, durable and ensures greater accessibility and movement, then look no further than artificial grass. Easigrass™ supplies and installs natural-look products that tick all the boxes and provide a range of benefits for able-bodied and mobility-impaired individuals. It’s a winner, no matter your reason for choosing an artificial lawn.
