How long will it last?
The products life varies on the quality of each product, as well as the country in which it is installed. The average lawn products last around 5-10 years, if installed to our recommendation – many have lasted way in excess of this period.
While very cheap leisure grass , do have a shorter life expectancy.
Does water drain through?
Yes 100% provided that the base is free draining. Products have perforation holes that conform to the minimum requirements for sports pitches.
How much maintenance does it involve?
Minimal. Keep clear of leaves, seeds and dirt by sweeping with a stiff brush regularly. For further information contact us.
Does the grass have a directional pile?
All tufted and needle-punched products are slightly directional as are all textile products. Please take this into consideration when placing your order.
Will the artificial grass fade?
All our artificial grass products are fully UV and colour stabilised. Depending on the product, they should last 5-10years through normal use, during which time there will be some slight fading, which will be barely noticeable.
Will weeds grow on the artificial grass?
Weeds will not grow through the grass but seeds may settle in the pile if the Artificial Grass is not maintained/brushed.
With a lot of use will the grass matt or flatten?
No. Not for many years as long as installation instructions, maintenance guidance and correct usage are applied.
What is it like to walk on?
All our artificial grasses vary in their feel, characteristics and appearance. Most provide a very natural texture that is similar to natural grass.
Will anything stain the grass?
No, within reason. Artificial Grasses are either polypropylene or polyethylene, which are forms of plastic. Stubborn marks will not therefore filtrate into the fibre but can be wiped clean with the use of hot water and household detergent (washing up liquid). We do not recommend any contact with bleach.
Can you park a car or vehicle on artificial turf?
Yes. If installed over a solid sub base certain products are ideal for this application, although petrol and diesel spillages may weaken/damage such surfaces.
How realistic is it?
Very. Landscaping grass products are extremely realistic, so much so that many people commonly mistake them for real grass.
What is the guarantee?
All our artificial grasses are guaranteed for at least 5 years. Most products have a guarantee based on their UV stability. However you will certainly get a life in excess of this period, as we have found out over our 12 years in business.
Do you supply sports grass?
Yes. We rarely get involved in the installation of full sized sports pitches as the main content of the contract is engineering based. However, Suntex factory supplies surfaces for soccer, hockey, tennis, multi-purpose practice pitches, golf and cricket facilities. If we don't install, we will put you in touch with one of our accredited sports contractors.
Would you recommend the use of artificial grass indoors?
Yes. Suntex offers a wide range of permanent and portable indoor products.
Can weeds penetrate the grass?
No. Not unless they are extremely stubborn. The sun cannot see through the surface so this discourages growth.
What maintenance is involved?
This varies on product, installation and application. Full details are available from Suntex if required.
