Basics of artificial grass
Laying artificial grass the hardest thing in the world but it does help to have a professional installer so you get things right. Done well artificial grass will create a beautiful space that you, your family, and pets can enjoy for many years to come. Depending on your choice our grass they come with up to 20 years warranty. They are pet friendly and require minimal maintenance to keep them looking great.
Artificial grass will be delivered as a role and its a bit like laying a carpet. We can cut to the nearest meter you need so you have very minimal waste. With some minimal preparation to the surface, it can be unrolled and secured down. It is easy to trim to the shape of your garden. Depending on the size you may need to join two lengths, this is quite normal.
Artificial grass can be laid outdoors or indoors, on hard surfaces like concrete and paving slabs, or soft surfaces like soil. There are drainage holes for water to deal with rain. For hard surfaces you can optionally choose an underlay, to soften where a falls may be of concern, this may be for children or the older generation.
What differences to look for
Most people look to the pile height or how tall the grass is. This is probably more of a guide and not directly that important. The main differences are
- Pile Height (The height of each blade of grass)
- Density (How many blades of grass are squashed in)
- Physical Weight (This is more of a guide to density, the actual weight is not very important)
- Colour (It depends on your preference, darker is more normal)
- Brown thatch (Manufactures put brown curly bits if dead looking grass in, to make it more like the real thing, you don’t want it too perfect)
- Yarn shape (The blades of grass can either be curly or flat, short grasses are usually curly to give a flatter even surface)
- Blade thickness (Do you want fine blades of grass or wide blades)
- Springness (A measure of how spongy it is. As the density goes up it usually gets more springy as there is more blades of grass there)
Every installation is totally different many factors affect the installation price, for example the location, surface, shape, preparation work. We are unable to give you a simple figure, but we can do an example for a fairly straight forward installation and a price range to be expected.
To give you slightly more tailored advice we need you to decide on Location. Will it be on a hard surface like concrete or a soft surface like soil. If the ground is rubble or very uneven it will need making reasonably flat first which may cost you extra. And on hard surfaces if you want underlay.
