9 Questions to Ask when Choosing an Artificial Grass Supplier

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Can I see a sample?

Never buy grass from a photograph, always see a sample.  Quality ranges from fake looking green-grocer-mat, to state-of-the-art turf that feels exactly like the real thing.

Where can I view your work?

It’s always better to see the grass laid, rather than looking at a small square sent through the post.  It will give you a much better idea of what your lawn will look like.  Plus, you can evaluate the quality of installation.

What does the price include?

Most companies will give you a price per square meter, but what exactly does that include?  VAT, shipping, installation, materials, labour?

How long is the product guaranteed for?

This will vary depending on the quality.  When you’re comparing quotes bear this in mind.  Something that costs a little more, but should last twice a long is a much better deal.

How should I maintain the grass to keep it in good condition?

Find out exactly what maintenance is required, what to do and what not to do.

Can I see the warranty terms and conditions?

Find out exactly what’s covered.  This is important, especially if you’re considering self-fit – any mistakes you make could void your warranty.

How will you install the grass?

Make sure the company use proper installation methods.  For example, we use a crushed hard core base for good drainage in every installation, others may not.

Who will carry out the work?

Make sure a qualified, experienced fitter will install the grass.  Problems can occur during installation and so you need to make sure someone with expertise is present to manage the project.

What insurance do you carry?

Make sure the fitter’s have adequate insurance in case of accidents or injury.

How to find the best artificial grass prices

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

Groundworks for installing artificial grassHere’s how a budget conscious consumer typically shops for artificial grass:

1.  Find the best artificial grass supplier in terms of price and quality online, after scouring discount retailer websites or using ebay.  Measure up and order the estimated amount in square meters.

2.  Take a trip to B&Q to buy all the extra equipment needed for the install, glue, tape, sharp knives and sand to weigh the grass down and keep it in position.

3.  In the case of large areas, that are seriously uneven, some will find a contractor to do the groundwork.  Others buy the materials such as sand to form a level surface from a local specialist and do it themselves.  Both can be extremely costly.

Things to keep in mind

The cheapest artificial grass can be bought from around £9 a square meter.  While this may seem brilliant, as with everything else, you only get what you pay for.  Apart from the fact it might looks like it’s come from a green grocer display, budget fake grass can cause  lots of problems later on.

Firstly it’s not as hard wearing, poor weaves mean fibres may fall out and you’ll end up with bare patches in high traffic areas.  You also need to consider whether it allows free drainage to avoid giant pools developing in your garden.

Many people fail to realise that there will be a lot of extras required and the initial price of £9 per sqm, can end up costing much, much more.

Once you bought all the tools, equipment and materials to do the job, you may as well have had a professional company come in to fit it.  You will save time, hassle and the total cost is unlikely to be much different.  Leisure Tech Lawns install for just £45 per sqm, this includes all groundwork, materials and labour.
