Artificial grass is an extremely versatile product. It is natural looking, long lasting, it feels soft and keeps it colour all year round. It is great for children or pets for preventing mud and mess coming into the house.
What surfaces can it be installed on?
Artificial grass most often is installed to replace an existing lawn surface, we can remove the old one and fully prepare a base to fit the new lawn or putting green on. But it can also be fitted in many places where natural grass cannot go; over old decking; covering an old patio; we can do the front of commercial business properties and more; if you are unsure about a surface or area then contact us and we’ll tell you how we can best fit your grass.
Is artificial turf safe and non-toxic?
Yes, and especially suitable for children and pets are some of the main reasons people go for artificial turf. It is safe, non-toxic, easy to clean and real no-hassle solution for a safe place for your family to play and relax. All of our grasses are manufactured in the EU providing that safe manufacturing procedures and materials are used.
Does artificial grass require maintenance?
Unlike some companies we are not going to claim it is maintenance free, but that it is very low maintenance. All that is required to keep your artificial grass looking good and healthy is the following; every 2 to 3 years the sand infill may need topped up; if your lawn has trees that shed leaves ensure that an excessive build up of leaves does not occur to prevent any kind of moss forming and if the grass begins to look flatter then a quick brush up will help this. As for weeds, the grass is produced using a very strong latex backing and weeds have no chance of penetrating through this. This also applies to moles and rabbits trying to burrow through the surface. As an additional precaution, we always lay a heavy-duty weed suppressant membrane under the artificial grass to prevent any weed growth through the small drainage holes. Being an outdoor surface there is a chance that airbourne weeds may settle into any organic material settling in the surface of the grass, this iss rare and the best way of preventing such an occurence is to keep the surface clean and tidy, if you do get any small weeds just use a regular weed killer.
Is artificial grass harmful to the environment?
Artificial grass is not harmful to the environment, it requires no watering, needs no pesticides or other chemicals to maintain it. It eliminates the need for power intensive maintenance.
Does it look really plastic?
Increasingly, this is not the case. Modern artificial grass products have a great, natural feel and look. Most of our products use a mixture of colour tones in the fibres to give a less 'manufactured' look giving a realistic finish to the lawn. If you need more
Will it drain properly?
Yes. The grass ahs drainage holes in teh base of the fabric allowing water (and other liquids) to pass through unhindered. If required, in particularly bad surfaces, we can also install drainage systems in your base.
How long will it last?
The grasses are guaranteed for up to 10 years against colour fade. This guarantees no fading but the grass should be usable and functional beyond this period if looked after. Guarantees on the turf are applicable world-wide including much hotter and brighter climates than here so colour fade in the UK shouldn't be a problem.
How can I install it?
We can provide you with a guide to install the gras if you need it just look at our installation page. We can also fully install the product for you, if needed. Be aware some stages of the installation will benefit from extra knowledge and experience, for example cutting, shaping and joining the grass can be difficult and if done incorrectly Is difficult to fix. It can also be extremely heavy, physically demanding and time consuming work and this is why we have a variety of machinery and specialist tools when we install.
