One Harrogate landscaping company is providing a service that can keep your lawn looking green and healthy all-year round without the need for constant maintenance. 

  • EGM Landscapes in Harrogate are gearing up for an increase in demand for low-maintenance gardens ahead of the sunnier months
  • The company are one of North Yorkshire's leading artificial grass companies, who also lay composite decking, fencing and patios
  • EGM specialise in artificial gardens that have the green look of a healthy lawn without the necessary maintenance

EGM Landscapes are providing low maintenance gardens in the form of artificial grass as the sunnier months put a strain on lawns across the country.

The Harrogate company specialise in artificial grass and are transforming gardens across North Yorkshire, providing consultation from design to completion to meet all budgets.

The company then provide a care guide once the grass is installed, and, like a carpet, you can clear any mess with a hoover or leaf blower!

Grass can struggle to grow in some gardens due to shade, resulting in mud patches and the need for re-seeding, but artificial grass gardens are built to last according to EGM Managing Director Will Shippam:

"When we do something, we like to make sure it lasts for years to come... We can transform your garden so that it stays green all year.

"If you've got dogs or pets that have been running around in your garden all winter, your lawn will get ruined, but that's when our grass comes into its own and will stay green without any mud, mess or mowing."
