Can I have a BBQ on my artificial grass lawn? 2017-06-07T17:05:47+00:00

While all our artificial grass product range has been meticulously tested to ensure it complies with the necessary fire testing regulations in the UK, we would recommend placing your BBQ on a solid, steady surface such as decking or paving slabs. This is mainly due to the fact that stray coals and embers could scorch and/or mark your new artificial grass lawn.

Can artificial grass be used indoors? 2017-01-30T19:44:02+00:00

Yes, artificial grass can be installed pretty much everywhere and can be used for a variety of purposes.

Artificial grass is becoming increasingly popular in offices as it can brighten up dull spaces and inspire creativity.

Hiring artificial grass is an ideal solution for temporary exhibitions, events, garden parties or wedding receptions.

How can I look after my artificial grass? 2017-06-07T16:20:51+00:00

You can clean the grass with most household cleaning products; just make sure they don’t contain bleach as this could discolour the grass.

Alternatively, you can purchase artificial grass cleaner from us. Contact us for more information.

Do you sell artificial grass underlay? 2017-06-07T17:10:53+00:00

Yes, we currently stock two kinds of underlay which are perfect for ensuring your artificial grass lawn isn’t spoiled by pesky weeds poking through.

We also stock an artificial grass shock pad underlay which can be installed when using our grass products in and around playgrounds and climbing frames. The shock pad underlay provides a soft landing and is perfect for schools and playgrounds.

Can I install artificial grass on walls? 2017-06-07T17:15:48+00:00

Yes. All of our synthetic grass products are woven into a solid backing material which can be pinned to vertical surfaces, as well as horizontal ones, allowing you to create a unique effect in your outdoor spaces. Some of our artificial grass types are more suited to vertical installation, please contact us for more info.

We also stock a range of artificial grass furniture, including artificial grass sofas, chairs and cubes.

Can artificial grass be installed on slopes? 2017-01-30T19:40:53+00:00

Yes, artificial grass can be installed on slopes.

If your garden is not flat or is an unusual shape, we would recommend arranging a free site survey so that our experts can look at the space and give you personal recommendations and advice about your artificial grass installation.

Can weeds grow through the artificial grass? 2017-01-30T19:40:15+00:00

No. We install the artificial grass with a weed membrane so that weeds can’t grow through the grass.

How does drainage work with artificial grass? 2017-01-30T19:29:39+00:00

So long as the grass has been installed correctly then there will be no issues with drainage.

Drainage in artificial grass lawns is arguably better than with real grass lawns.

We install the artificial grass with a good base of limestone and granite and the backing of our artificial grass is permeable with holes in the membrane.

Can you recommend a grass that can withstand heavy footfall? 2017-01-30T19:26:18+00:00

Our spring back (Wow factor) artificial grass is ideal for areas that experience heavy footfall.

It is expertly manufactured so that each blade of grass has a c-shaped yarn. This technology allows the grass to spring back up after it has been trodden underfoot.

This makes the grass extremely hard-wearing and ideal for play areas!

Is the grass child friendly? 2017-01-30T19:25:21+00:00

Yes, our artificial grass has no lead content which means it is non-toxic and safe for children.

Our grass feels soft and we can install a thick underlay to add extra cushioning to the grass. We can also provide a thick 20mm crash pad underlay. This underlay would be perfect if the grass surrounds a climbing frame or play area to ensure children will have a softer landing if they fall.

We have experience installing artificial grass in schools and playgrounds.

What if my pet has done its business on my artificial grass? 2017-01-30T19:19:19+00:00

Don’t worry! It’s very easy to clean up after your pet.

The permeable nature of the membrane ensures excess is absorbed by the underlay, and you can easily clean off excess using any cleaning products which do not contain bleach.

We sell artificial grass cleaner or you can use your own cleaning products (as long as they don’t contain bleach).

If in doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Is your artificial grass pet friendly? 2017-01-30T19:17:03+00:00

Yes, our artificial grass is mud free, lead free and non-toxic making it safe for your pets at home.

The backing of the artificial grass is permeable with holes in the membrane and pet urine won’t change the colour of the grass, leaving your grass looking great all year round.

The grass has a very high stitch-per-inch ratio, making it extremely hard-wearing. Its density means dogs won’t be able to dig holes in the lawn. You can also choose artificial grass that has a spring back feature, where each blade of grass is curved in a c-shape yarn. This type of grass cannot be flattened underfoot making it ideal for lawns that experience heavy footfall from pets.

 

If pets will use the grass, we would recommend choosing a shorter pile high grass due to its hard-wearing nature.

Is the grass UV protected? 2017-01-30T19:14:01+00:00

Yes! UV protection is manufactured into every blade of grass so it won’t change colour in the sun, unlike many cheaply manufactured artificial grasses you will unfortunately find on the market today.

Can I install artificial grass myself? 2017-01-30T19:12:15+00:00

Yes, if you know what you are doing, you can simply order the grass from us and install it yourself.

If you need advice on how to install the grass yourself, get in touch and we can advise you. You can also take a look at our Artificial Grass Installation page.

Alternatively, save yourself the time and effort and ask our experts to install it for you. Our commercial installations come with a 7 year warranty and residential installations carry a 10 year warranty!

Do your commercial installations come with a warranty? 2017-01-30T18:52:19+00:00

Yes, we provide a 7 year warranty with all of our commercial installations.

Does your artificial grass come with a warranty? 2017-01-30T18:35:45+00:00

Yes, our artificial grass comes with a 10 year warranty when installed by our artificial grass installation team at a residential address.

Can I remove the artificial grass once it’s been installed? 2017-06-08T14:52:13+00:00

It is possible to unpin your artificial grass lawn, roll it up and take it with you should you wish to when you move house. The artificial grass can easily be re-pinned over the top of a solid base at your new property.

If you need regular access underneath your artificial grass lawn you should speak to our installations team when obtaining your quote. It is very likely that our team can create seamless joins in your new artificial lawn, to ensure regular access to things like manholes isn’t problematic. For example, check out this project page to learn more.
