Artificial Grass Pro's
Pristine lawn: A pristine lawn all year round.
Low Maintenance: No need to mow, weed or water the grass.
No mud: Pets, children and adults can enjoy a mud free garden (and home) regardless of the weather.
Seasonal Proof: Able to handle all types of weather
Artificial Grass Con's
Surface heat: Artificial turf holds more heat than natural grass, so it can feel warm to the touch. Some types of infill can also raise the surface temperature.
Artificial grass does not flame up, but it can melt if something such as a hot charcoal falls on it or under intense reflected sunlight from a window. However, fake grass can be repaired.
Odor build up: Like natural grass, if you don’t clean up messes on artificial turf, they will fester. Certain types of infill are prone to holding odors, too.
Surface heat: Turf is considerably cooler than most other common surfaces.
Environment: Turf is overall more beneficial for the environment
The effect of a well mown lawn can help the overall look of the garden. Having a real lawn surface will complement the plant and insect life, as well as helping the overall ecological make up of your back yard!
Maintenance: You will need to dedicate more time to your lawn especially in the summer. weeding, watering and mowing are some jobs you will need to partake in to keep your grass pristine.
High Traffic: This means after a lot of use of a particular area your grass may need extra care.
Choosing The Best Artificial Grass For You.
If you decide that Artificial Grass is for you then theirs a few more things you might need to consider.
For Pets and Children: we recommend a shorter to medium pile height. The shorter the pile the more it will help with cleaning and upholding hygiene. With short to medium pile heights it will also withstand hours of garden activities and keep the natural look.
For A Beautiful Finish: we would recommend a medium to long pile height.
The look of your Artificial Grass is just as important but to some can be more important then the function, things you need to consider:
Pile Height: Artificial grass comes in a variety of pile heights, depending on it’s intended use. Longer grasses, around 30mm mark, will give a lush, luxurious look, whereas shorter, 16-27mm grass will look neater, and is more suitable for kids or pets.
Colour: Artificial Grass comes in lots of different shades and colour's you need to decide if a light or dark colour will suit your garden better.
I can’t speak too highly of the team at Marshall’s. We recently had extensive garden work done by them, which included laying lawn, patios and pathways. Their assistance with the design and planning, as well as the standard of work itself was excellent.
Tim and his team worked so hard through awful weather to produce a really amazing garden for us. Major landscaping including re-laying patio slabs, planting and laying artificial turf. So happy with the results in time for the heatwave. Thanks guys!
Can’t recommend these guys highly enough. They did the best job on our artificial grass, replaced broken flags and worked hard to get it completed on time whilst ensuring it was done to the highest standard. We’ve spent everyday in the garden since it’s been done and we are really pleased with the results.
