The Do’s and Don’ts of Artificial Grass
One of the many great things about installing artificial grass is its convenience and low maintenance appeal. Gone are the days of wasting Saturday afternoons attempting to maintain your fickle natural lawn. Now, you can spend hours doing what you love! From relaxing with family and friends to throwing a barbeque or binge-watching your favourite Netflix series, you can now enjoy all this and more with artificial turf installed.
It’s a whole new world with artificial grass, but there are a few do’s and don’ts that you should keep in mind.
Don’t Place Hot Things On It
Artificial grass is designed to withstand the natural elements, whether hot or cold. Unfortunately, this doesn’t extend to the intense heat of your barbeque or grill. While we know you love showing off your lush artificial lawn to friends and family with a well-deserved summertime barbeque, we advise placing it on a flame-retardant surface to avoid damaging your artificial grass. Hot embers from barbeques, grills and cigarettes may not cause your lawn to catch fire, but it does have the potential to damage your synthetic grass fibres. It’s best to play it safe by keeping your distance.
Do Get It For Your Kids & Pets
Your kids and pets will love artificial grass! Not only does it provide a fun and comfy playing surface for your four-legged friend and your little one, but you also need zero harmful chemicals to maintain your lawn, which gives you extra peace of mind when your loved ones are playing outside. A tough and durable surface to withstand your dog’s digging and a hypoallergenic surface for little ones who suffer from pollen allergies – what more could you ask for? Here are a few more reasons your pets and kids will love it!
Don’t Ignore Regular Maintenance
Low maintenance does not mean no maintenance. While artificial grass is a great investment for homeowners looking to spend less time doing yard work, it does require a certain level of maintenance to ensure it remains in good condition for years to come. Turf’s durable nature makes it perfect for areas with heavy foot traffic, but it will eventually become bent or flat through continuous use. But don’t stress! You can use a bristle brush or plastic rake, brushing the fibres in an upright position to get it looking great again.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a beautiful lawn without lifting a finger. Thankfully, Easigrass™ provides a maintenance package that leaves it in the hands of the experts. From debris removal to grass re-fluffing, enjoying the beauty and convenience of our award-winning products has never been easier!
Do Get It If You Have Allergies
Around 1 in 5 people in the UK suffer from allergies, and 95% of hay fever symptoms are thanks to grass pollen. While the common remedy to itchy eyes and a blocked nose is to take medication and remain indoors, this isn’t always a realistic option, especially during summer. Artificial grass is a great alternative for hay fever sufferers looking to reduce their symptoms while enjoying the beauty of the outdoors, as it’s made with hypoallergenic materials. It’s also a breeze to clean, allowing you to rinse dust and other debris with a simple spray of the hose.
Do Spend More Time Outdoors
Artificial grass can enhance your outdoor living experience and encourage you to spend more time outside. Regardless of the weather conditions, synthetic turf remains green and inviting. You can enjoy the beauty of your outdoor area throughout the year without worrying about your lawn’s appearance or cleaning up little footprints or pawprints.
Don’t Install It Yourself
While installing artificial grass yourself is an option, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. They understand the nuances of the installation process, such as proper site preparation, sub-base compaction, and seam and edge treatments. They also have the necessary experience to troubleshoot on the job and can complete an installation quickly and efficiently, saving you time and money. Warranties are also a big advantage to having your artificial grass professionally installed. For example, we are confident about the quality of our award-winning products and provide a warranty for our various synthetic grass products.
Do Get Your Artificial Grass Professionally Installed
Professional installation ensures that your investment in artificial grass is expertly handled, resulting in a stunning, long-lasting, and trouble-free landscape. By choosing professional installation, you’re not only saving valuable time but also ensuring a beautiful, low-maintenance, and durable outdoor space that you can enjoy for years.
