As one of the top artificial grass companies in the South of England, the team here at New Lawn regularly fields all kinds of common questions. Whether you are wondering if you need to water your artificial grass (seriously, people ask!) or just want to know how to keep your investment looking its best, here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions.
- Is artificial grass expensive?
Artificial grass is a very cost effective solution, it is a lot more affordable than you might think. When the initial costs are in the past, you will actually start saving a lot of money. You will no longer need to splash out on seed, fertiliser, and lawn care, not to mention all the time you spend on cutting the lawn!
- What is artificial grass made from?
Artificial grass is usually made from a combination of a few completely safe materials. These are polyethylene, nylon and polypropylene, materials that are often used in food packaging and storage.
- How can I care for my artificial grass?
It is incredibly easy to keep your artificial grass looking its best. In order to care for your lawn, regularly brush it in the direction of the natural pile. Use a leaf blower or brush to remove fallen leaves, and always rotate heavy items to different places in your garden in order to prevent flattening over time. Having a BBQ? Make sure that heat and ashes stay away from your lawn (put the BBQ on a patio) in order to prevent melting.
- Do I need to water my artificial grass?
You do not need to water your artificial turf, but if your dog or cat relieves themselves on its surface it is a good idea to rinse it down on a regular basis!
- Will my artificial grass be ok in the rain?
As we are located in the South of England, this is an incredibly common question! People always want to know if their artificial grass will be able to handle a downpour, or many days of sustained showers. It is absolutely fine, the groundwork we complete will be able to drain the water to ensure it does not sit on top of the grass.
- Will snow and ice ruin my artificial grass?
While we don’t get too much snow in the South of England, it can get very chilly here. A few flurries are not uncommon, and waking up to a sheet of frost and ice is common throughout the winter months. Thankfully, snow and ice will not ruin your artificial grass.
