Artificial grass allows you to have perfectly manicured lawns without the hassle. There’s no need for constant mowing, weeding, or worrying about unsightly patches. Synthetic lawns require very little maintenance allowing your garden to stay beautifully green all year round. Artificial grass can be laid on a variety of surfaces, where natural grass is normally unable to grow. Natural grass is not only time consuming to maintain but can be unpredictable in how and where it goes. With synthetic lawns, as well as, being able to choose the type of grass you best prefer, you have a guarantee of it not dying, eliminating the risk of patches. Here at Artificial Grass Derbyshire, we have premium quality artificial grass for sale, complete with a diverse range so you can find the perfect artificial grass for you.
If you are considering laying a synthetic lawn which will require joining, we would recommend using an artificial grass which has a pile depth greater than 25mm, this will when laid correctly, give you a superb natural looking seamless lawn.
Effective joining will require the correct artificial grass jointing tape and adhesive.
Back in the springtime of 2012 we laid a 24sqm artificial lawn at our Hilton (Derbyshire) show site; we chose a very attractive tri-coloured SmartGrass and as it had a pile depth of over 20mm, we chose to adopt the recommended method of surface dressing the lawn with dried kiln sand, this is supposed to ensure that the pile stays up, ensuring that you continue to have a superb looking lawn. We covered just half of the lawn as we wished to test the theory.
Three years on we can report that indeed the pile has kept its structure (with very occasional light brushing) and the lawn still looks as good as the day it was laid, but on the area which was dressed with dried kiln sand, this has allowed for moss to grow, whilst the area without sand has remained free of any moss or weeds.
Where customers require a lawn with a pile depth greater than 20mm i.e where children or toddlers will be playing (as a longer pile gives a softer feel,) then we recommend an artificial lawn which has a "W" yarn construction, giving a pile with "spring back" action, eliminating the need to top dress with dried kiln sand.
So laid over a correctly prepared sub-base, we can install for you a very realistic lawn that will retain its attractive good looks for years to come and will remain moss & weed free.
