Where can I install Artificial Grass?
Your artificial grass can be laid on hard surfaces and can be easily installed to replace your existing lawn. Hard surfaces that are common for laying artificial grass can include roof terraces, play areas, outside offices, around caravans, pathways, driveways, balconies and commercial areas; all provided that drainage is good. When replacing an existing lawn with your artificial grass, please make sure the ground is prepared suitably beforehand.
Can Artificial Grass be installed on Decking?
Artificial grass can be fitted over a wide range of surfaces. See our DIY installation page for further details. When fitting over decking, a soft foam underlay is best to use prior to fitting.
How do I clean Artificial Grass?
Cleaning your artificial grass from Fylde Grass is as simple as a quick rinse. We recommend using our specially formulated Artificial Grass cleaner which is perfect for safe removal of stubborn stains and refresh your Fake Lawn’s appearance.
Is Artificial Grass pet friendly?
Yes, Fylde Grass artificial lawns are ideal for dogs and cats to play on. All of our products are guaranteed to free of harmful toxins and is stain resistant straight from installation!
With a quick hose and some mild detergent every now and then, you can keep your Fake Lawn looking as good as new!
What is 'Pile Direction'?
With the majority of fake grass products you should always consider which way you want to lay the grass when received. The artificial lawn will look slightly lighter from one direction and darker from another, so it’s important to decide which way your lawn will face before it is fitted. When you receive your artificial grass from Grass Direct, it’s always best to roll it out slightly in all directions to see which you prefer.
Different rolls of Artificial Grass can differ slightly in colour variation. If you are ordering two or more pieces of Artificial Grass that will be joined together please inform us upon placing your order so we can make every effort to ensure cuts are taken from the same roll where possible. (This is not a guaranteed service and we cannot be held responsible for slight colour variation which occurs as a result of cuts being taken from different rolls.) We do advise you to order the same widths for all pieces in this situation as this will limit the colour variation.
Be sure when placing & joining two or more pieces together, that the pile direction runs in the same direction. Always check before fully fitting two pieces together by taking a step back and checking the pile runs in the same direction. Never try to fit your grass at different angles as this will highlight the join and may cause colour variation between the pieces.
Is Artificial Grass safe for children?
All of our artificial grasses are safe for children to play on just as if it were your normal garden area.
Our Luxury Grasses are particularly good for young children as they’re extremely dense and comfortable. Don’t blame us if you find them napping on it on warm day!
We would advise that for artificial grasses laid in public or commercial areas that cater for children; such as play centres, play warehouses etc, correct shockpad / underlay must be installed to accommodate the correct fall heights.
How do I maintain my new Fylde Grass lawn?
Fylde Grass Artificial Grass is a doddle to maintain. Nothing more than a quick brush to remove debris such as leaves, twigs and seeds; and your artificial grass will continue to look fantastic all year round. Not only that, but brushing also helps to keep that natural looking Grass pile without the hassle of mowing, weeding and watering.
Are weeds a problem with Artificial Grass?
To protect against weeds, we recommend that you apply weed killer to the area prior to fitting our geotextile weed membrane. This combination should provide you with the perfect defence against weeds.
Do you offer a fitting service?
To help keep our prices as low as possible, we currently offer a cutting and delivery only service. We would advise contacting a landscaper in your local area.
If you’re feeling brave and would like to have a go yourself, our useful DIY Installation guide will talk you through the process. It’s not as difficult as you might think!
If you are looking for a landscaper we would recommend you using BALI www.bali.org.uk (British Association of Landscape Industries) or www.yell.com to find your local recognised landscaper.
Is composite decking slippery when wet?
No! But…composite decking itself is very much anti-slip due to it’s granular composition and resistance to rotting and algae. However, if debris, dead leaves and similar are left on the surface there is still a potential slip risk present.
Will my composite decking fade?
A little! Although our composite decking uses UV stabilisation additives during manufacturing, they will lighten slightly within the first few weeks / months whilst any residual dyes wash out due to weathering before they settle into their final colour. This process is known as “extractive bleeding”
Are your composite decking boards fire proof?
Composite products have a higher combustion temperature than timber which means they are less likely to catch fire. However, they aren’t guaranteed to be absolutely fire proof.
How many boards will I need for my project?
If you give us a call on 01253 486144 or email us at email@example.com we can work it out for you.
However, you can use this simple calculation to give you a rough idea:
For 3.6m – Multiply the m2 of the area by 2 (i.e. 20m2 would need approximately 40 boards)
For 2.9m – Multiply the m2 of the area by 2.3 (i.e. 20m2 would need approximately 46 boards)
