Artificial grass is a relatively new concept to garden design. An affordable, low maintenance alternative to real grass, our vibrant range of sustainable artificial grasses will keep your outdoor spaces looking fresh and green, no matter what the season. If you’re thinking of buying artificial grass for your home or business, this handy guide should make things easier for you by answering any questions you may have.
What is artificial grass?
Artificial Grass is an affordable, low maintenance and sustainable solution to garden design. Combining the natural appearance and underfoot sensation of natural grass, with the convenience of an artificial alternative that requires very little upkeep and will give you a lush looking lawn all year round. No more weekend lawn-mowing or watering!
What is artificial grass made from and how is it made?
Our ranges of artificial grass are made from a mix of polypropylene and polyester to give it a realistic colour. It is protected from ultraviolet rays meaning there’s no need to worry about your grass fading with sunlight – your lawn will still look vibrant for many years. Made in a similar way to tufted carpets, artificial grass has a strong latex backing which gives it strength and stability, whatever the weather.
How durable is artificial grass?
Overall, artificial grass is very robust and our ranges all come with a UV warranty of at least 5 years, some 7, giving you peace of mind that your garden will have a luscious green lawn for years to come. It is also pet friendly and of course mole resistant. Its sustainability with no need to use fertilizers and no carbon emissions make it great for the environment too.
How do I maintain my artificial lawn?
You can forget spending Sunday mornings tending to and mowing your lawn. Artificial grass takes very little maintenance - no mowing, watering or feeding means more of your time is your own. The upkeep couldn’t be simpler; just a regular going over with a leaf blower for best results – or stiff broom or plastic rake if a blower is not available - to remove leaves and debris, and it’s as good as new.
If there are instances where it needs freshening up, hosing down is recommended. Diluted disinfectant will eradicate pet urine odours or mess.
Please note that outdoor mirrors or mirrored walls are not recommended for use near artificial grass, due to the risk of the surface being burnt by reflected sunlight.
Where can I use artificial grass?
With its easy fitting and low maintenance, artificial grass is becoming increasingly popular for use in many outdoor areas, not just the obvious lawns. It can be also be used for:
• Caravan/mobile home sites
• Roof gardens
• Al fresco dining
In fact it can be used to enhance any outdoor area, where you may have grass, creating a beautiful lush finish that will last and last. Our artificial grass is not suitable for indoor use.
