Its environmental properties and the minimal need for care has led artificial grass to becoming increasingly popular. However, in this new and as yet unregulated market, there are some suppliers offering artificial grass at very low prices. In these cases, substandard materials and cheap production methods are usually being used. This is why we are offering some tips on how to choose the right artificial grass.
What you should look out for when choosing artificial grass…
The quality of the blade of grass is particularly important for the durability and convincing colour of your artificial grass. The fabric that the blades of grass are woven into and the composition of the backing will also have an enormous effect on the final result. Ask your supplier about the products used. Then you can check whether the artificial grass has been manufactured using materials from proven reliable and traceable suppliers. Ask about the technical specifications, guarantees and test certificates, so that you can compare products. Most artificial grass looks good, but appearances can often be deceptive!
Would you like your grass to still be a luscious green and look healthy and freshly mowed after years of use?
