A lot of New Zealand properties have a cold south side, where the rubbish bins or hose reel get stored. There is often a wood pile for the fire along with every other bit of stuff that doesn’t quite make it to the garage. It usually consists of a strip of sad-looking lawn, against a fence or hedge, that doesn’t see the rays of the sun from March to November. It’s cold and dank and the grass fights hard to grow, and you hate the look of it. Artificial grass is the perfect solution here. It looks fabulous all year round and requires virtually no maintenance. Gone are the days of traipsing mud inside after re-filling the wood basket. The grass stays green, the mud stays away and you love it! Now you can send the kids out to grab the firewood. Perfect!
