Artificial Grass Indoors?

You can have artificial grass indoors – how different would that be? No, it’s not a typo and neither have we spent too much time in the sun! Your office, play area, school library reading area or even your home orangery/conservatory covered in our top-quality turf (artificial turf, that is) would certainly be a bit of a conversation starter – or conversation stopper, even! Why install fake grass indoors? You could enjoy the feel of the outdoors whatever the weather outside, mixed with a combination of both real indoor plants and fake ones, the only limit would be your imagination, and we love a challenge! Relax in a ‘garden’ that needs very little maintenance, is always heated to your preferred temperature, and you won’t have to dodge the showers! And, in most cases, installing our faux turf indoors is less complicated than one of the standard outdoor installations that Ecograss would undertake normally. This is because most indoor floors are level and will most likely only require clearing debris and making sure that the installation area is clean installing the shock pad (if required) to create a safer, softer experience. This would be advisable in the case of a play area or library reading area we would then lay your choice (we can help you choose a suitable product) of  faux grass, making sure that it’s a perfect fit lastly, we would inspect edges and joins, making sure that they were secure and able to withstand the rigours of the use expected of them. Which artificial turf should I lay indoors? Which type of artificial turf you lay in your indoor space depends on where/what the indoor space is, physical limitations (like doors, and passages), and what you intend to use that area for. Shorter fibre lengths will almost certainly…

Artificial grass and the environment

Artificial Grass and the Environment

Thanks to people like Greta Thunberg, our focus is being turned to the environment and how we, as humans, can affect it for good and bad. Artificial Grass and the environment, good or bad? It’s a good question because these days, we’re all a little more concerned about what we do, eat, and buy, usually in terms of our health and well-being. Like most things, artificial turf has its good points and its bad points – it would be naive to think otherwise – but does one outweigh the other? The downsides of faux turf? The first and most obvious is that, of course, there’s an awful lot of plastic goes into artificial grass, and there was a time when none of the component parts could be recycled. However, there’s been a lot of work done to reverse this, and for the most part, the work has borne fruit, although availability is limited. The parts are separated, and (for example) the plastic is ‘pelletised’ and made into other products. The other option you might consider is repurposing the fake grass that you no longer want. This is especially good because although the looks might have faded, the functionality of the ‘grass’ might still be good. Examples of repurposing artificial grass include: – dog or cat runs – cricket practice areas – play areas – other people’s gardens Last but not least, the use of artificial turf doesn’t support natural life or vegetation. You can obviously offset this by planting in other areas of your garden – using hanging baskets in areas where space is tight, for example. The ecosystem needs to be maintained as much as you possibly can, and Ecograss is happy to advise on matters like this when you ask us to look at installing an artificial grass…

Cleaning your artificial grass

Cleaning Your Artificial Grass

Cleaning Your Artificial Grass isn’t particularly difficult. Here are some pointers to help you. When Ecograss installs your artificial grass in your garden, playground or even your outdoor working space, it is intended to last. Of course, nothing lasts forever, and how long it will last is dependent on things like footfall (traffic), but there are things you can do to extend the life and looks of your faux grass. Debris on Faux Grass Dirt and debris can block your drainage system as well as make your garden/play/outdoor working space untidy – and nobody wants that! So, on a fairly regular basis, maybe weekly, pick up any loose debris, leaves or dirt – use a soft brush or rake if it’s easier for you. However, be gentle with the rake because if you’re too enthusiastic, you could cause permanent damage. Litter pickers (or grabbers) are great for this and can be bought fairly cheaply from Amazon, Wilkinsons or your local garden centre (these links are for your convenience and are examples – no endorsement is given or implied.) – your back will thank you! You can also buy artificial grass cleaner or use a mix of 50% water and 50% vinegar. Cheap as chips but not necessarily good for the ambience of your garden as the smell that’s left can be quite overpowering. If you can’t sit in your garden and admire your artificial grass, it defeats the objective of having the grass in the first place, but horses for the course, if you don’t mind the (temporarily) pungent odour, it’s effective and will cost pennies. Cleaning Spills & Stains on Artificial Grass Spillages should be cleaned as soon as possible. ALWAYS blot the spill or stain with a damp rag or kitchen roll – if you rub it, you…

How Artificial Grass Helped During the Pandemic

There can be no greater illustration of the human ability to adapt to change than during the pandemic – and artificial grass helped. Truly ‘shock & awe’, we got used to remote working, masks, Zoom meetings and NOT spending time indoors. Outdoors became the new outdoors, especially where permitted gatherings were allowed for work or pleasure. There were unsung heroes everywhere helping to make life more bearable but there was one that nobody really expected – or thought of, for that matter – our good friend, artificial grass. As companies, leisure businesses and the like reopened and got used to where who and how many people could gather, outside became, well, almost everything. To make their outside environment more palatable for customers, employees or delegates, artificial grass became the de facto covering for concrete yards, car parks or any other area that was utilised to increase space and provide a more aesthetically pleasing environment for social gatherings, meetings, conferences etc. In some quarters, synthetic grass, as laid by Ecograss, can cause some people to become a little bit, shall we say, sniffy. ‘It’s not real grass, it’ll look awful in a few months’ they’ll cry! The fact of the matter is that in a lot of cases, the faux grass will outlive its natural sibling and any usual warranty – if it’s installed by experts and basic care principles are followed. That translates into cost savings, year on year on year. And, it will keep its looks, come rain, shine, snow, hail, and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at it. You won’t really be able to say the same with certainty about its natural counterpart. Mud, bare patches, slips are all pitfalls of the natural version. In the current financial climate (the cost-of-living crisis here in the UK), any…

Artificial grass Vs Harsh Winter Weather

Can artificial grass withstand the winter weather?

With recent weather events, including severe and prolonged gusts of wind and deluges of biblical proportions, you’d be forgiven for wondering if your lovely artificial grass will withstand the winter weather and make it through the impending winter months unscathed, ready for use in the spring and summer of 2023. The good news is that, of course, you have nothing to worry about if you chose to have your artificial grass installed by the experts at Ecograss. The husband-and-wife team behind Ecograss have been supplying and installing artificial grass since 2009 when they started their journey in beautiful Cyprus. Relocating back to the UK in 2012, they filled a gap in the market, completing thousands of artificial installations for both domestic and commercial customers – in all weathers from Nottingham to Leicester and beyond. So, they know something about artificial grass and how it can easily survive climates from Cyprus to Coventry! There’s a story of artificial grass surviving a hurricane in Miami, Florida when everything else was flattened and damaged beyond repair, we kid you not. Admittedly, the installers did bear in mind that Miami is often struck by fierce tropical storms – we’re unlikely to be subjected to such forces in the UK – and prepared the ground (if you’ll pardon the pun) accordingly. If you’d like to read the blog post about the Florida hurricane and the artificial grass installation, here’s the link to the blog post (just so you know, this opens a link to an external website which is not the responsibility of Ecograss) Ecograss also factor in any environmental factors (such as gradients, proximity to other hazards etc) when they’re planning your artificial grass and garden installation. Aside from location, potential hazards and weather-related events, it might be that there’s a special need because…

Pest-Free: Artificial grass is also much less likely to attract pests like mosquitoes, ants, and termites than natural grass.

Artificial Grass In Autumn And Winter

Winter Care Guide:Maintaining Your Artificial Grass During the Cold Months As winter approaches, it's essential to ensure that your artificial grass remains in optimal condition despite the harsh weather conditions. Proper care and maintenance during this time will help preserve the longevity and aesthetic appeal of your artificial turf. In this blog post, we will provide you with valuable tips on how to look after your artificial grass during the winter months. Regular Brushing Even though natural grass tends to slow down its growth during winter, artificial grass requires regular brushing to keep it looking fresh and vibrant. Winter precipitation, such as rain or snow, can cause debris to accumulate on the surface. Use a stiff brush or a leaf blower to remove leaves, twigs, and any other debris that may have settled on your artificial turf. Frequent brushing not only keeps your lawn clean but also helps maintain the upright position of the grass blades. Proper Drainage One of the significant advantages of artificial grass is its excellent drainage system. However, during winter, when rain and melting snow are more prevalent, it's crucial to ensure that your artificial turf's drainage remains unobstructed. Regularly clear any leaves or other debris that may accumulate in the drainage holes or around the edges of your lawn. This will prevent water from pooling and potentially damaging the base of your artificial grass. Dealing with Snow If you live in an area where snowfall is common, you may need to take some additional steps to care for your artificial grass during the winter months. Avoid Shoveling: Using a shovel to remove snow from your artificial turf can be damaging. Instead, allow the snow to melt naturally or use a plastic shovel with a smooth edge to gently push the snow off the surface. Prevent…

The Impact of Artificial Grass on the Environment

Artificial grass has seen considerable progress since its inception. And many people have decided to incorporate it into their gardens for its many great benefits. Flexibility is one of the main advantages of these artificial grass. Ideal for gardens and sports fields, synthetic grass can also be used in many other places like balconies, terraces, interiors, stairs, playgrounds, etc. Yet many people are still reluctant to make this change. The debate on natural or synthetic grass remains open. But perhaps the most important question is: is the use of artificial grass safe for the environment? Is it an ecological choice? Water consumption Artificial grass, compared to other surfaces of your garden, rarely needs water for its maintenance. Other than to remove dust and dirt(especially if have pets) and to refresh it. This result in considerable savings, up to 70% or more, compared to natural grass, even more, if you live in drought areas. Compared to other surfaces such as tiles or concrete, the savings could not be as great, but they would still exist because the cooling of the lawn in summer is much faster than in the case of these materials, which retain more heat. We all know how important it is to conserve and use resources wisely. Artificial grass, therefore, has a point in its favour. Recycling Those who oppose this artificial grass also argue that it is not recyclable. The lifespan of these synthetic grass can be up to 25 years, but some fear that if it is not recyclable at the end of its useful life, it will end up in landfills generating more waste. However, this is not entirely true. Synthetic turfs are not all the same. Indeed, many lawns are made with recyclable materials. Reducing carbon emissions Many argue that synthetic grass does not…

How To Keep Artificial Grass Looking New

More and more people are choosing artificial grass for their spaces which includes terraces, lawns, or interior areas. This green carpet that resembles natural grass has the advantage that it requires minimal maintenance. However, over time it can get dirty and accumulate residue. For this reason, in this article, we will let you know what care you should take with artificial grass and some tips to keep it in good condition.   1. Periodic Maintenance Brushing: To keep the artificial grass clean, it is advisable to sweep it from time to time with a hard broom in the style used by street sweepers. It should brush against the direction of the fibres. If the installation is on silica sand, remember to maintain a uniform base if you perceive cracks or need to make repairs, distribute the sand again. Watering: Another great recommendation is to water it once a month or every two months to keep it clean and lower the temperature. In the case of natural grass, moisture is deposited in the sand and maintains the freshness of natural grass, although it is not recommended to water synthetic grass when temperatures are very low because frost can wear down the latex base. Sand base: It is also important to reposition the sand base, with which the wind and traffic can accumulate at specific points. You have to redistribute it evenly, fill in the gaps, and replace it if the quantity decreases. This is important as the silica sand keeps the grass upright, settles the installation into the ground, and reduces static charge. Weeds and fungi: For cases where it is placed on a natural surface, it is recommended to apply a herbicide. And avoid excess moisture that can lead to the appearance of fungi. In case this happens, control than…

How To Choose Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is cost-effective, time-saving, and water-saving solution… However, because there are so many items to choose from, it can be difficult to know which is the best. You need not be concerned. We’ll show you things to think about while you’re out shopping.  Also, keep in mind that you may always contact a product specialist for assistance. Our recommendation is to purchase the highest quality grass you can afford and to always conduct your research on providers to ensure that you are receiving the greatest value for your money. All of your queries about artificial grass will be answered in this helpful guide. Let’s get this party started, shall we? Pile Height Choosing a pile height is usually a question of personal preference. Anything between 25-30mm is an excellent choice for individuals who appreciate the look of freshly cut grass. We recommend something between 30-38mm for a natural-looking lawn.  If the fibers are any longer, they will lie flat under their own weight rather than standing straight. Shorter heaps are debated as to whether they are more durable. In our testing, we discovered that shorter pile heights outperform longer pile heights in the long run for grasses made of polypropylene or polyethylene.  Color Choice color, like pile height, is simply a matter of personal preference. There is no such thing as right and wrong.  When it comes to fake grass, you’ll notice a wide spectrum of colors, which is due to the many different hues f green present in actual grass. Many manufacturers provide free samples, which you should take advantage of before making a purchasing decision because you can’t rely on internet images to get a genuine indication of the color of your chosen artificial grass.  When selecting colors, keep in mind that the samples should be placed where…

Benefits of Installing Artificial Grass

So, you’d want a lush green lawn? It’s possible that the green yard you’ve ever have is artificial one. This isn’t your grandfather’s Astroturf: today’s “synthetic” grass has gone a long way.

Artificial Grass is a Winner – Whatever the Weather!

It might surprise you to learn that an artificial lawn is generally much easier to manage regardless of the weather conditions or temperature.
