The City of Sheffield, in South Yorkshire, has been inhabited for nearly 13,000 years but the city came into it’s own with the Industrial Revolution. The growth of the steel industry in Sheffield created a large industrial city with a much multiplied population. Unfortunately, the slump of the British steel industry, which coincided with the collapse of the collieries in the area, caused the city to go into decline in the 1970s and 1980s. The 21st century has seen huge redevelopment of Sheffield; the city is now very much on the up.

Even though Sheffield is a very green city with an estimated 2.5 million trees, making it the European city with the highest ratio of trees to people, city living usually means having to make the most of any outdoor space that you might have. You could transform your dull, courtyard garden by laying artificial grass, creating a lush lawn that you never thought possible. Even if you already have a lawn, living in a busy urban area may mean that you don’t have the time to keep your garden looking as immaculate as you would like. Swapping your natural lawn for synthetic turf offers the just-mowed finish all year round. There is minimal maintenance required, leaving you time to enjoy your garden with your family and friends.

With two universities, the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield welcomes around 54,000 students each year. Student houses are not known for being kept particularly tidy and gardens can be a point of contention. Landlords choosing to install fake grass in the gardens of student houses can prevent any issues with jungle growth and help to keep the outside of the property looking as neat as possible.

Artificial grass from Perfectly Green looks natural. There are colour variations within each tuft to make it look as realistic as possible. To see for yourself the quality of our synthetic grass, order a free sample pack today.
