Frequently Asked Questions
Is artificial grass good for dog owners?
Any of the lawn grasses are perfect for dog owners. Many of our products have been installed in many gardens with dogs and the customer comments have been very positive. The sand filling in the lawn grasses protects the pile from dog claws.
Is artificial grass safe for children and pets?
Yes, our lawn grasses are lovely and soft and loved by children and pets. The children can continue to play ball games, bounce on the trampoline, the dog can run around chasing the ball and rolling all over without causing a mud bath!
What maintenance is required for an artificial lawn?
We recommend using warm soapy water and a stiff brush to clean shorter pile grasses. Jet washes and hoses c an also be used. To remove leaves on longer pile grasses either use a blower, a light rake or brush.
To prevent weeds or moss forming, we recommend you use a watered down weed killer solution twice yearly on the whole of the lawn area.
For dog mess, remove the bulk of the mess and again use a soapy water solution and brush the area if required. This ensures the smells are washed away.
How long will my artificial lawn last?
It is estimated that your artificial lawn will last 12-15 years through normal use. Our artificial grasses are fully UV stabilised and will not show signs of fading until approximately 12 years.
Can I have a BBQ on my lawn?
It is best to use a sand filled grass. As a precaution, we would recommend placing the BBQ on top of slabs or bricks.
How long does it take to install an artificial lawn?
We can usually install a regular sized lawn (approx 40-60sqm's) in just one day. Bigger gardens that require significant ground work and preparation will take 2-3 days.
Are artificial lawns cheaper than a natural lawn?
Yes, over a 5-10 year period. If you were to add up 10 years of watering, feeding, cost of two lawn mowers and (in many cases) the cost of re-turfing, an Eternal Lawn is a cheaper alternative. Also consider the time saved at the weekend and reduced waste in your garden bin!
