Artificial Grass

You might be surprised to read this, but artificial grass is not immune to weeds. True, a fake lawn requires less maintenance than a real one, but going artificial doesn't necessarily mean that you'll never have to worry about weeds again.

As a general rule, you will only ever notice weeds growing around the edge of your artificial lawn, although it is possible for weeds to push through from beneath - especially if your fake grass was installed without a weed-resistant membrane.

Counting time on a watch

SHORT ANSWER: Japanese knotweed can grow up to 10cm per day during the summer months.

Japanese knotweed has a reputation for fast, aggressive growth. Not only can this invasive plant species grow through cracks in brickwork and concrete, it can do so with rather frightening speed!

Japanese knotweed's growth rate depends on the time of year. As we've discussed previously (see When Does Japanese Knotweed Grow?) the plant goes dormant during the winter months, then re-emerges in the spring.

Summer is when the plant hits its top growing speed. Japanese knotweed loves warm weather, and it has been known to grow by as much as 10cm per day during the summer months!

As we discussed in our blog about Japanese knotweed's growing cycle, this invasive species may appear to die off completely during the winter months. But appearances can be deceptive.

It's lovely having a patio - especially when there's a pandemic in progress and the government are saying that you can't leave the house - but it's not quite so lovely when you notice furry green moss growing in between your patio pavers.

Unfortunately, moss is a very common problem on patios - especially in the UK, where the damp weather often creates ideal growing conditions for this unsightly pest of a plant.
