A garden party during the Christmas season? Did we really just put those two phrases into the same sentence?

We’ve come up with our top tips for throwing the best party outside during the festive season.
With global warming becoming an increasing problem, people are beginning to think of ways to become more environmentally friendly. Car shares, pushbikes and switching off electricals are all very common measures for negating the effects of global warming but not many people think about their gardens. Although natural gardens seem nice, you could be more environmentally friendly by opting for artificial grass. Not only will your garden look greener with artificial grass, it will also be greener; below, we’ve discussed the reasons why.
Less Water Will Be Used
It’s the dark, thrilling time of year again; Halloween is right around the corner! Are you thinking of throwing a Halloween garden party this year? Below, we’ve collated some of our favourite ideas for parties outside at this time of year.
Turn Your Garden into a Graveyard
Trying to maintain a beautiful garden during wet weather can seem like an impossible chore. However, with a few tricks, it can be a lot less of a struggle. We’ve come up with our top gardening tips to prepare for the wet weather and what to do when it does arrive.
Create a Pathway
In the UK, we have a lot of rain, wind and snow and our gardens go through it all, meaning it can sometimes be difficult to use them unless it’s a dry and hot day, which is very rare for us. It’s a dream to have a garden that can be used in all seasons but now you’ve got Prestige Lawns, you can make that dream a reality! Artificial grass is the perfect solution to have a beautiful garden that you can use to your heart’s content in all seasons.
Bloom and Blossom in the Months of Spring
As we approach the last weeks of Summer, we’re beginning to think about how to prepare our gardens for the Autumn months. We’re already starting to get wet and colder days but everyone still wants to maintain a stunning garden all year round. We’ve come up with three top tips to prepare your garden for Autumn.
Change Your Flowers
One way to get your garden prepared is to change up your flowers. As your summer flowers get to the end of their life, plant Autumn blooming flowers in their place; doing so will mean you’ll already have beautiful flowers appearing in your garden as we enter Autumn. We have a couple of favourites for the season: Begonias, which flower through the Summer months all the way up to November, and Nerine flowers, which can bring summer colours into the colder months with their cerise pink petals.
Want a stunning outside area that you can use more often, but you’re stuck with a small space and struggling to do a lot with it? Luckily for you, we’ve collated some of our best ideas to make a beautiful garden out of a small space.
The key to getting an outside area that people will envy is to not overcrowd. We understand the temptation of going into a garden centre and wanting to buy all of the ornaments, but you’ll thank us for telling you to put the gnome down and keep your garden minimal. Overcrowding an area instantly makes it appear smaller as it looks cluttered; if you can see more of the area, it will appear bigger. However, that’s not to say don’t buy any decorations for your garden; outdoor lights are perfect to subtly add detail for a beautiful garden and they look very pretty on summer nights!
Jealous of your neighbour’s perfectly cut, bright green grass? How do they get it to look so beautiful? Artificial turf installation! Each year, we see a huge rise in the amount of people choosing artificial grass for a beautiful looking garden to impress their guests. So, why are so many people turning to the artificial solution?
Looks great all year round.
The main reason so many people are choosing artificial grass is that it looks great all year round. In the UK, we face a lot of changes in the weather and this can really affect natural grass: dying in some seasons, over growing in others. Opting for artificial turf installation means that whatever the weather, your garden will always look fresh and beautiful whether we’re in the high heat of summer or freezing winter storms.
So, you’ve finally done it, you’ve invested in an artificial garden. The next logical question to ask is, “how do I make the most of it”? Ensuring that you take full advantage of the surface is very important; after all, there’s a reason you’ve made the change. Below, Prestige Lawns takes a look at some important considerations regarding your artificial grass.
Maintaining your artificial grass
It goes without saying that it’s incredibly important to maintain the standard of your lawn. There’s no point investing in a new, smart garden and then neglecting it. Hosing it down as often as it needs is a good starting point; if you’re in a dusty area or have pets, you’ll need to do this more often. Aside from that, it’s important not to allow the lawn to become covered by various objects. You’ve got it, make sure that you flaunt it!
