Whether you’re after artificial grass for dogs or luxury artificial grass, homeowners across Surrey have opted for synthetic turf. It’s no surprise that various types of artificial grass have skyrocketed in popularity, as they boast a lush green appearance, low maintenance requirements, and durability. From this, an aesthetically pleasing and practical alternative to natural grass is created. As a result, when it comes to choosing the right artificial grass for your Surrey home, the decision can’t be taken lightly. This means that multiple factors need to be considered to ensure an informed choice is made in which your specific preferences and needs are met.
Which Artificial Grass Is Best?
Unfortunately, there’s no one answer to which is the best artificial grass, as it all depends on your unique requirements. To that end, detailed below are some of the factors of consideration to bear in mind when choosing the right artificial grass for your Surrey home.
Quality and Realism
First and foremost, quality is probably the most important aspect of selecting the right artificial grass. You’re looking to mimic the appearance and texture of natural grass, meaning you need to make quite the investment. The aesthetics of synthetic grass is what places it above alternatives, such as paving and gravel, meaning you need something that looks great.
In order to find realistic-looking artificial grass, you’re going to want to search for products with multiple shades of green, realistic blade shapes, and a natural-looking texture. Fortunately, this is exactly what’s provided by the Artificial Lawn Company range. Our high-quality grasses have a soft and comfortable feel underfoot, making them perfect for playing on, picnicking, lounging on, and more.
Pile Height and Density
We have a comprehensive range of synthetic turf, meaning we can supply anything ranging from 18mm artificial grass to 45mm artificial grass. As with anything else, the best-suited pile height and density will depend on the intended use of your lawn. For instance, if you’re covering a high-traffic area, you’re going to want to opt for a shorter pile height. Alternatively, if your aim is to create a luscious-looking garden space, taller pile heights are the way forward.
As far as density is concerned, this refers to how many blades are in a square metre. This affects the look and feel of the grass, wherein a denser turf allows for a fuller and more luxurious appearance.
Since your artificial grass is likely to be laid outdoors, it will inevitably see a lot of sunlight. If your turf isn’t of the best quality, frequent UV exposure can cause it to fade. Fortunately, when choosing Artificial Lawn Company as your supplier, this isn’t something that you need to worry about. Each of our synthetic grasses boasts excellent UV stability with a 10 year guarantee to boot. Meaning they’re designed to resist fading and maintain their vibrant colour for years on end and guaranteed to last.
Artificial grass is an investment, which means it’s more important than ever to choose a product that stands the test of time. Due to the fact that we only use high-quality materials, our lawns have the capacity to last as many as 15-20 years. So long as you properly care for and maintain your artificial grass, you won’t need to replace it any time soon all with little maintenance.
We all know how delightful the Great British weather can be, which is why it’s essential to find artificial grass that can withstand a considerable amount of rainfall. If your synthetic turf isn’t properly installed or if it isn’t of high quality, this can lead to water pooling on the surface. Not only does this make for an unsafe environment, but it can also be damaging to your new lawn.
Here at Artificial Lawn Company, each of our grasses is equipped with a quality backing material and an effective drainage system. We also ensure that each of these remains functional during our professional installation service, which is why we always recommend that our customers opt for our installation service or follow our compressive guides for bes results.
Of course, artificial grass doesn’t require as much maintenance as natural grass; however, all our products will require some maintenance. That said, some of our grasses will require more maintenance than others, so it’s important to consider how much work you’re willing to put in to keep your lawn looking great.
As previously mentioned, we always recommend that our customers make use of our installation service. This is because our years of experience mean that we’re able to ensure that your lawn looks great and performs well over time with relative ease. Although we provide a handy installation guide, if you want the best results, we promise we’ll be able to deliver them.
