Does artificial grass get hot in the sun?
However, you may be wondering just how well artificial grass will perform in the summer months. Will it be comfortable to use or will it be a little too hot?
In this article, we’ll explore this question and offer simple solutions so you can enjoy your artificial grass come rain or shine.
Does artificial grass get hot?
In days gone by, artificial grass was certainly known to heat to high temperatures when compared to natural grass.
Luckily, advances in technology mean that modern-day artificial grass, such as the products we provide here at Easigrass, does not rise to unsafe temperatures. We even provide a specific infill product which is designed to cool grass down to enjoyable, natural levels.
Hopefully this has eased your mind a little, knowing that your new artificial grass lawn will be comfortable all year round. If you still want some tips on how to get your grass down to even cooler temperatures during the summer months, then read on.
4 easy ways to cool down artificial grass
- Choose a reputable installer: Make sure you select a company that understands the ins and outs of grass heat control. Here at Easigrass, we can provide a range of materials and infill options that are designed to reduce surface temperature in hot weather – and we’re always happy to help you choose a grass that works for your home or business.
- Heat-reducing infills: The infill you select will have a significant effect on the temperature of your grass. The Easigrass team is here to explore your options, including non-rubber infills and lighter-coloured infills, along with our specialist heat-reducing infill, EasiZeo infill. Developed from 100% organic volcanic ash minerals, EasiZeo cools individual fibres, which significantly lowers temperatures down to natural levels.
- Use a garden hose or sprinkler: Sounds simple, but a hose or sprinkler can work wonders to lower the temperature of the surface, and is also a bit of fun on a hot day.
- Make your own shade: Awnings, canopies, outdoor umbrellas or large plants can all reward your lawn with a bit of beauty – and a bit of shade. And not only will this keep your grass cool, it will also shade other elements of your garden and carve out clear areas for you to sit back and relax in. So it might be worth getting inventive and rethinking your exterior design to incorporate more shade.
