Finally, although it is not something that will affect the installation of your artificial lawn, many people neglect to remove or create shade over reflective surfaces once they’ve finished their installation. During hot or bright weather, sunlight reflected from mirrored surfaces or double-glazed windows can cause damage or even burn your artificial grass.
Make sure you consider this prior to starting your installation and ensure all reflective surfaces are shaded or covered before you begin - you don’t want to risk your artificial turf melting before you’ve even finished installing it!
