Synthetic Turf vs Lawn
Get Your Neighbours Green With Envy!
Synthetic grass is extremely durable & designed to replicate the look & feel of real grass, with low maintenance & will compliment any garden, around the pool or outdoor area. Save time & money not having to water, mow & look after real grass. It is child & pet safe making it the perfect alternative.
No Dead Patches
No Chemicals or Pesticides
Maintenance & Installation
All you need to do is a once over, once a month using nothing more than a plastic rake to keep the blades looking perfect. However it is recommended that your lawn is professionally groomed by your installer approximately every 3-6 months to keep it looking & feeling superb. Installing synthetic grass is no hassle it can be laid onto any surface, concrete, dirt or existing grass.
The grass on it's own should be enough to weigh down. The fibres have been curled & spring set to prevent "matting" they also consist of UV protection called "Polyethylene". Which is the softest fibre component in the industry. Some infill is required a combination of sand or rubber infill is used which also assists in weighing down the grass. Although most people prefer the feel of the soft rubber, sand is cheaper. Synthetic grass can be applied to either residential, commercial, schools or sport fields.
What about water drainage you ask?
Easy! The perforated holes are engineered to accommodate the normal drainage requirements of rainstorm & snowstorm. The water simply drains through the holes into the earth. During heavy rains some water will run off the top of the surface, just as real grass or dirt would. This actually is an advantage over real grass, since the infill will allow for vertical drainage.
Even cleaning up your pet mess is simple. Just like real grass, scoop it up, then hose down with a garden hose. The urine will flow through the holes like rainwater. Whether it be kids running around or playing a bit of backyard cricket it can be incorporated into your landscaping, synthetic grass enhances all aspects of your home.
SO MAKE THIS SUMMER A GREEN ONE!
