Fake plastic grass has been banned from this year’s famous Chelsea Flower Show.
The RHS, the UK’s leading gardening charity, said no fake grass would be allowed because of its damaging effect on the environment.
The use of fake grass, also known as artificial grass, in-home gardens have grown in popularity over the years.
Sales of it boomed in 2020 during lockdown as it was seen to be easier to manage and look after than fresh lawn.
But conservationists say real grass is much better for the environment.
Real grass lawns give lots of benefits to the environment, including absorbing carbon dioxide, producing oxygen, cooling the air, and creating a home for wildlife – especially insects.
