Artificial Grass is a Winner – Whatever the Weather!

Artificial Grass is a Winner – Whatever the Weather! Artificial grass is a hardy beast, but you may have concerns about the changeable and unpredictable nature of the weather here in the UK. It might surprise you to learn that an artificial lawn is generally much easier to manage regardless of the weather conditions or temperature. Artificial grass is hay fever friendly in the summer months and UV stabilised. In contrast, an artificial lawn will tolerate far more extreme weather conditions than the natural alternative when the inevitable cold weather and storms arrive. Artificial grass is an all-around winner!  Whether the weather is wet or dry, Ecograss will help! We will alleviate the worst of your weather worries.  If My Garden is Susceptible to Flooding, Will an Artificial Lawn Help? On average, one square meter of an artificial lawn will drain around 50 litres of water per minute. Even in the UK’s heaviest rain – this is more than substantial. Your location will determine the options available, and we will go through everything with you during the planning and installation phase. Rainwater simply syphons away when we install an artificial lawn. All Ecograss artificial lawns are installed with drainage in mind with a sub-layer of porous sand/limestone or both. We fit artificial grass by first levelling the base and we also remove any debris. This results in a sustainable and beautiful artificial lawn that lasts for years to come. A more extensive drainage system may be required in more extreme circumstances, but these situations are uncommon. We will always ensure the best outcome with minimum fuss and outlay. How Will My Artificial Lawn Fair in Snow and Icy Conditions? If your artificial lawn becomes frozen, like any grass or surface, it may become slippery so take care! Remove as much…

How to Maintain Your Artificial Lawn-Ecograss

Artificial lawns are very low maintenance; however, as with everything, there are things about how to maintain your artificial lawn.  Keep the lawn clean Although they won’t harm the lawn, leaves, and twigs will inevitably fall onto the grass. If neglected, this may lead to unwanted weed growth. It is best to remove these with a stiff broom, plastic rake, blower – or even a hoover! Yes, you read that right, a hoover! Brush the pile Every month or two, we recommend a good brush up of the pile to keep the fibers upright. Sunlight/heat do lift the pile naturally; however, in areas with a lot of foot traffic, it’s always best to brush the fibres back up to help prevent flattening. Weedkiller Some stubborn weeds may find their way through the artificial lawn, and some airborne seeds can settle on the surface. We recommend removing any weeds that surface and spraying weed killer once or twice a year to help prevent any weeds from popping up through the drainage holes around the edges of the lawn. Also, to help avoid any moss growth. Make sure to use a water-based weed killer, and it’s highly recommended you do a patch test on an off-cut first. Pet owners Pet owners love our lawns as they are easily maintained! You should make sure that all mess is removed from the surface, and if needed, you can hose the area down or use warm water to rinse away any residue. A mild detergent, such as diluted Zoflora, can be used to keep the lawn smelling nice and fresh. You can also purchase pet odor removers (for more information on which ones we suggest, contact us here). Things to avoid It is important to remember that any naked flame such as a BBQ, bonfire/fireworks,…

Is artificial grass suitable for pets?

Are you thinking of getting artificial grass but don’t know whether artificial grass is suitable for pets?There are many reasons why having an artificial lawn when you have some four-legged friends in your household, as it’s generally safer than natural lawns, making it a pet-friendly favorite. Here is the answer to your question Is artificial grass suitable for pets? Artificial grass is safer than a natural lawn Pets and artificial grass work well together. There are no weeds that they can chew, no mushrooms or toadstools that they can forage out and eat, and it’s safe for them to walk on without the risk of getting anything stuck in their paws. Artificial grass is washable We don’t mean you can throw it in the washing machine, of course! But you can hose it down, especially if your dog uses the lawn as its toilet. The artificial grass doesn’t stain like natural grass due to the dog’s urine, so you won’t get any horrible brown patches on your lawn. Artificial grass is highly durable If you have a puppy or remember your dog being a puppy, you will know they tend to pull up the grass or dig their way to another part of the country. Artificial grass is highly durable and, therefore, will withstand those puppy digging stages. If rabbits are your pet of choice, you might be worried about their vegetarian diet and your grass becoming a victim, we recommend keeping an eye out but you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Our artificial grass can withstand any pet test. If you have any further questions about our artificial grass, our team will be happy to answer them and find the perfect artificial grass for your garden or outdoor area.
