Plastic lawns not ‘low maintenance’ as council warns they may create more work

1 min read


 Mr Reeves said the council would only remove trees if they were diseased or causing damage to homes.

James Byrne, landscapes recovery programme manager for The Wildlife Trusts, said: “Plastic lawns are as much use for wildlife as screen doors on a submarine.

“With 15 percent of species in the UK threatened with extinction, we need to do all we can to create more space for nature, with wilder gardens providing wildflowers for pollinators and food for birds, not choosing plastic alternatives because they appear ‘convenient’.

“At the end of the day, if you have to vacuum your lawn, it’s not a lawn, it’s a carpet.”
