We hear many different questions about artificial grass, and so we have compiled some of the most frequent for you. If you have any questions or need more information please give us a call, we would love to hear from you…
?DOES SYNTHETIC GRASS DAMAGE THE ENVIRONMENT?
Installing synthetic grass is actually a big positive for the environment. We offer a unique surface which incorporates the equivalent of 15 plastic bottles per sqm as part of the yarn construction.
In addition, having a synthetic lawn means no environmentally damaging fertilisers, no lawn mowers using energy and no wasting of water using sprinklers. Synthetic grass really is as green as it looks!
?HOW EASY IS IT TO INSTALL?
On more straightforward installations, DIY is certainly possible. However, to achieve the perfect end result the correct base preparation and the installation of the grass is as important as choosing the right surface. Artificial turf needs to be laid onto a solid, level base and you will require specialist machinery and tools such as turf cutters, compactors, etc. Our professional team are able to provide an expert, fully guaranteed installation service, so why not let us do the hard work for you?
? IS ARTIFICIAL GRASS A GOOD SURFACE FOR PETS?
An artificial lawn can be the perfect solution for pets. No more brown patches of dead grass and any droppings are easy to remove or wash away. Pets will enjoy artificial grass just like normal grass with the added advantage for you that they won't dig up the lawn.
?DOES THE COLOUR FADE OVER TIME?
Your artificial lawn will retain its beautiful colour for many years, even in regular direct sunlight. Our lawn fibres are UV stabilised to comply with the latest quality standards to ensure they are highly fade-resistant
?CAN IT BE LAID ON AREAS WITH SLOPES OR GRADIANTS?
Artificial grass can be laid almost anywhere, from garden areas to flat roof spaces and paved areas. The grass can be laid onto sloped areas and gradients but will require fixing at the edges to prevent movement and slipping.
?CAN WEEDS OR MOSS GROW THROUGH THE ARITIFICIAL LAWN?
When we install your artificial lawn we use the highest quality 'GeoTextile' weed membrane. This prevents future weed growth developing, ensuring your lawn remains maintenance free and looks great all year round.
?IS YOUR ARTIFICIAL GRASS FIRE-RESISTANT?
All our lawn surfaces contain efficient fire-retardants to prevent any hot spots from spreading. Naturally, we don't recommend placing a barbecue tray directly onto the artificial grass, but you can stand your BBQ on slabs on top of your lawn.
?HOW LONG WILL MY ARTIFICIAL LAWN LAST?
Our artificial lawns will provide you with up to 20 years of easy-care use depending on how much wear they get. Uppergrass surfaces are designed not to flatten or fade. Your lawn will retain its elegant appearance year after year.
?HOW NATURAL DOES THE GRASS LOOK?
Gone are the days of 'greengrocer' grass that looks very fake. Product technology has come on leaps and bounds, with specially profiled fibres and a combination of colours and textures which ensures our synthetic grass looks extremely life like.
