AS the height of summer approaches, PermaLawn is encouraging UK merchants to consider diversifying their stock range by adding artificial grass that’s simple to install with a high-quality aesthetic, giving their customers an easy way to broaden their own services.
Last year, the UK saw a 31.4% increase in the sale of building materials as a result of the DIY boom during Covid-19, according to statistics published by Statista Research Department. And now, changing attitudes mean that a growing number of consumers are wanting to spend more money on revamping gardens post-pandemic, resulting in a surge in the sector’s popularity.
Merchants can help contractors to make the most of this demand by choosing to work in partnership with tried and tested brands such as PermaLawn. The company offers a wide range of grasses to suit each individual customer’s needs, which are measured and delivered to exact garden specifications and are high-quality enough to stand the test of time.
Adrian Buttress, managing director of PermaLawn, said: “Artificial grass is a smart, convenient, and aesthetically pleasing alternative for homeowners who want a lawn that’s hassle-free and always looks freshly cut – but, it’s important to invest in a quality product up front to ensure the lawn’s longevity, whatever the British weather.
“The past 18 months have seen homeowners across the UK confined to their houses during the country’s three lockdowns, meaning their focus has shifted to ensuring their home and garden is in top condition. As such, now is the perfect opportunity for merchants to expand their choice of landscaping products and become stockists of PermaLawn.
“By introducing a range of products, our stockists will be able to ensure they’re selling a high-quality system that’s in demand, quick and easy to install and, to top it all off, comes with a seven-year guarantee too.”
Based at its headquarters in Derbyshire, PermaLawn purposefully sits on 100,000m2 of stock all-year-round, meaning traders don’t need to be concerned about delays caused by the current material shortage the industry’s facing and can start selling straight away while the demand is there.
Adrian added: “We’re committed to making sure that homeowners don’t have to plan garden renovations months in advance, which is why we’re proud to ensure that stock is available 365 days a year. By reaching out to more stockists across the country, we’ll be able to ensure the continuation of our high-quality service and allow homeowners easier access to our products at the time they need them most.”
