Its durability, low maintenance requirements, and aesthetic appeal make it suitable for a wide range of uses.

Is artificial grass better than natural grass?

While it always depends on the purpose and your personal preference, artificial grass is definitely a great alternative to natural grass. Natural grass offers a lush, organic look, but artificial grass requires minimal maintenance, conserves water, stays green year-round, and is resistant to pests and harsh weather conditions. 

Is artificial grass safe?

Artificial grass does not require mowing, fertilisers, or pesticides, reducing chemical runoff and air pollution.

Can I use artificial grass around swimming pools?

Absolutely, artificial grass is a fantastic choice for use around swimming pools. Its non-slip surface provides a safe and comfortable area for laying by the pool, while its durability and resistance to chlorine and saltwater make it ideal for pool surrounds. Artificial grass eliminates the need for grass clippings and mud, keeping pool areas clean and inviting.

Is artificial grass dog-friendly?

It sure is! Artificial grass is pet-friendly and provides a safe and hygienic outdoor space for dogs to play and relax. Artificial turf also eliminates muddy patches and prevents the growth of pests and allergens, creating a clean and low-maintenance environment for your pets.

Is artificial grass safe for children?

Yes, artificial grass is safe for children to play on. Our premium quality artificial turf is manufactured from non-toxic materials that are free from harmful chemicals and allergens, making it safe for contact with the skin. It also provides a soft and cushioned surface that reduces the risk of injuries from falls, making it great for playgrounds, daycare centres, and backyard play areas.

Is artificial grass cost-effective compared to natural grass?

In the long run, artificial grass can be a cost-effective alternative when compared to natural grass. The initial installation cost of artificial turf may be higher than laying natural grass, but artificial grass requires minimal ongoing maintenance and eliminates the need for water, fertilisers, pesticides, and lawn care equipment. 

Over time, the savings on water bills, lawn maintenance services, and landscaping materials can offset the initial investment, making artificial grass a cost-effective landscaping solution for many homeowners and businesses.
