No not at all as it requires no water, no pesticides, no fertilisers or the use of energy or fuel to maintain it. With the way the climate is changing having the perfect lawn without the use of water is a great benefit. Also with the fibres still being so lush and dense insects can happily live in between them without coming into contact with mower blades. All our products are environmentally safe and have been tested to DIN 18035-7 for heavy metal content and for odour, dissolved organic carbon and toxicity.
Yes, maintenance is required, but it’s minimal. Unlike some of our competitors we install all our grasses with sand infill, the actual amount depending on the product. The surface requires periodic light brushing to prevent the infill from settling and once a year it may be necessary to top this up to maintain the optimum appearance of the grass. Leaves and any other debris should be removed to prevent any kind of moss build up.
The grass is absolutely safe for children and has a soft feel to the surface. What is more, they will not get covered in mud whatever the time of year!
For added protection from falls a shock pad can be installed below the grass around climbing frames and play equipment to give a surface which meets critical fall height requirements.
When we install our artificial lawn we incorporate a geotextile weed membrane below the foundation stone which prevents future weed growth.
Yes the grass has a holed latex backing which we would lay over a stone foundation base allowing the base to be firm and the water to drain away.
In exceptional circumstances where natural drainage is very poor it may be necessary to install some land drainage, however, if this was the case you would be advised and the costs would form part of our quotation.
21st Century grass is perfect for dogs and other pets such as cats or rabbits. Pet waste is easily removed by simply washing down the area and it won’t stain the grass. What’s more, your pet won’t come into the house and leave muddy paw prints across the floor!
