Q. What is the lifespan of artificial grass?

A. We install only the best artificial grass from reputed manufacturers. Many of these come with an 8-10 year guarantee and the grass is UV protected. In the majority of cases we expect the lifespan of your grass to exceed 12 years. As an installer, we provide a two year guarantee which protects against factors such as subsidence.

Q. Is fake turf bad for the environment?

A. There isn’t a black and white answer to this question. The carbon footprint created from yearly use of lawn mowers and the cuttings also causing a disproportionate amount of emissions is evidence that there are two sides to the argument. Natural grass is also often treated with pesticides and fertilisers which can be harmful to the environment. The nature of artificial grass is that it is a manmade product which has its own carbon footprint.
