I transformed my garden using artificial grass – I love it and it's so much better for the kids to play on too | The Sun
A WOMAN who wanted to give her garden a makeover for summer decided to use artificial grass.
UK-based Rae shared the transformation on her TikTok account @raesgardentransformation.
In the clip, Rae revealed she got some help from her dad in laying the fake grass in her garden, which she said was perfect for children to play on, but she was aware people weren't going to be a fan of it.
She added: "I know there are a lot of sensitive people who watch my videos, so take this as a trigger warning.
"You are gonna see artificial grass in this video."
Her dad started by using a wacker machine to level the ground.

Next, they added some sand on top and used a screeding bar to ensure the surface was flat before adding the artificial grass.
Once the grass was rolled out, her dad cut it to size and stapled it into place.
Rae finished the transformation by brushing out the grass with a broom to make it fluffy.
The video has since gone viral with over 290k views and over 30,000 likes.

People were quick to share their thoughts on the artificial grass in the comments section of the post.
One person wrote: "artificial grass always looks like an old tennis court to me, but it's your oasis, excited to see the planting."
"I said to my Dad it looks like a football pitch haha. But I'm sure it'll look better once there are things on there," replied Rae.
Another commented: "Oh. The artificial grass looks softer than I thought it would. Like an outdoor carpet. It's nice."
Rae added: "Yes it is soft, I told the guy in the shop that it was for the baby and he recommended this one as it's softer."
"It's coming together, great work," penned a third.
Meanwhile a fourth said: "It's coming on lovely."
"Coming together now can’t wait to see it finished well done,” claimed a fifth
