How Do I Maintain Artificial Grass?
Very little maintenance is required for synthetic grass installed at your property. All that is required is to sweep off any leaves or gently use a leaf blower.

To lift the grass fibres just use a broom to sweep in the opposite direction to your view point.

What Happens to the Grass When it Rains or Snows?
The water drains through the grass and so does the snow when it melts.
How Can I Get Rid of Pet Odour From the Grass?

We guarantee that our turf is free from heavy metals and toxic chemicals. At Turf Green, we wouldn’t supply a product that we weren’t personally happy to use for our own families and much loved pets.

How Does Turf Green’s Synthetic Lawn Compare With Others?
Do you Install to Manufacturer’s Specifications?
Yes. Unfortunately, some artificial grass installers cut corners with their installation in order to reduce costs, skimping on the density of base, pinning or brushing in the sand in-fill on top of the pile. Unfortunately this means the manufacturer’s warranty is voided and reduces the longevity of the product. At Turf Green, we don’t cut corners with our installation of synthetic grass. Each of our artificial grass installations meet our manufacturers guidelines, which means you receive years of hassle free enjoyment of your synthetic lawn.
How is the Artificial Grass Installed?
We have specialist installers who can do it for you or we can provide the information required if you would like to do it yourself.
