Let’s talk pile height and artificial grass. We want to explain what it is, and then why it’s important. That way, if and when you decide to go ahead with having artificial grass in your property then you’ll have knowledge of what it is and how to discuss your needs more comprehensively. Choosing the right pile height can help you to get the most out of your artificial grass lawn so it’s not wasted and fully utilised for its intended purpose.

So, let’s get started on this then – what is pile height?

Pile height is the length of the fibres on artificial turf. If it was a natural lawn these would be the individual grass blades above the surface of the soil. It’s measured so we can tell you exactly how high it is, this way you have an educated guess at how high it will be once it’s fitted on to the surface of your garden. It also gives you an idea of how suitable it will be for your needs. Different pile heights serve different needs and here at The Turf Warehouse, we supply several different ones so our clients have a wide range of choices.

Why do we talk about pile height and why supply different ones?

We do this because if you’re looking to purchase artificial grass you’ll need to make sure you have the right kind of surface that suits what you’re going to be using it for, whether that’s football, golf or for sitting around of an evening with friends.

Aesthetics

The height of your grass can impact on how it looks, you might be thinking of a longer pile for your lawn, and if you don’t walk on it often and it’s just purely for reasons of aesthetics e.g. it could be for surrounding a water feature or to sit around the base of a tree, then that’s fine. However, a high pile height could be detrimental to an attractive looking lawn if it gets walked on regularly and flattens out.

Shorter pile heights can be easier to manage and make your garden look more uniform and attractive. It’s also quite handy for sports – again the height of the pile will be determined by your needs.

Fit for purpose

Because what we’re talking about here is whether the pile height you’ve chosen is suitable for its purpose. Sports will be the determining factor. It’s a case of applying the pile height which is best suited for what your intended use is, so football will need a different pile height to that required for bowling or golf.

Artificial grass can last for many, many years

All artificial grass regardless of pile height is both functional and durable. It can last for decades if taken care of, and taking care of it is little more than brushing and washing gently with detergent every now and again. So, in general, but there are no hard and fast rules here, longer fibres are great for areas that are for display only and not for walking on, and shorter fibres are great for families and sitting out on.

The Turf Warehouse – High Quality Artificial Grass

Remember that we sell different types of artificial grass with different pile heights. We also have an expert team of professionals who can help you choose the right pile height for your needs. If you need it installed as well, we can do that for you too. No-fuss, and we clear up once we’re finished. Contact us today.

Are you thinking about having artificial grass installed but you’re not sure? We’re here to put those doubts to rest by debunking some myths surrounding artificial grass, and we hope that what you read here will encourage you to think about artificial grass as a viable alternative to a grass lawn.  

Artificial grass is too expensive.

Have you been put off by artificial grass up until now because of the potential expense? Well, let us debunk that myth for you. Artificial grass is reasonably priced, and even though there is an initial investment you will get back what you put in because you’ll save in so many other ways –  no watering, no electricity or fuel for lawn mowers, no chemicals for weeds and insects. That’s savings in money you could spend elsewhere and time you could use spending time with your family. 

It looks fake.

Artificial grass is much more sophisticated and has improved immeasurably over the years. Installing it is quick and easy and the quality of artificial grass has improved immeasurably over the years. You’ll barely be able to tell the difference and neither will anyone else. 

It doesn’t last very long.

Yes it does, it lasts for up to 15 years, and in that time you save money and time in maintenance, freeing up your spare time to do other things as we’ve already mentioned. Just brush it occasionally and wipe it down sometimes, removing debris that blows into the garden and that’s it. 

Artificial grass needs a lot of care and attention.

No, as we’ve seen it’s almost maintenance free, and all you need to do is brush it occasionally and pull out any rogue weeds that may have grown through. There’s no mowing, no hosing in summer, there’s no need for herbicides, pesticides, fungicides either. It’s just so easy to care for, freeing up your time for other things. 

Artificial grass – now you know the truth.

We hope that now you’ve read our post it helps you to make an informed decision. Artificial grass is a vast improvement on a real grass lawn in many ways. It looks fantastic all year round, and not just in summer, and it needs very little maintenance. It’s cost effective and the initial outlay isn’t anywhere near as much as you’d think. Contact us today with The Turf Warehouse and let’s get that artificial grass lawn down so you can enjoy time spent doing other things.

Artificial grass is quickly becoming everybody’s ideal grass lawn, but why? If you’ve noticed an upsurge in popularity in this versatile outdoor surface, then we can tell you why. This post is all about why artificial grass is so popular – we know that our customers love it because they tell us so. They use artificial grass to replace tired old lawns and soon find that both pets, children and adult adjust to it in next to no time. 

Artificial grass lawns have come a long way since the 60s

Artificial grass is popular for lots of different reasons, but the main one is that it is so versatile. No more is it the cheap plastic version that falls apart in a short period of time. Artificial grass has moved on a lot since then, it’s far more sophisticated and far more authentic, it’s likely that no one will notice you even have it. It’s harder and harder to distinguish it from real grass, so you’ve got a lawn without all the hard work but with all the elegance of a plush green lawn all year round. 

What is the hard work though?

Well, a natural lawn requires a lot of maintenance as you probably already know. There’s the cutting of the lawn using power or fuel, then there’s the pesticides, herbicides and fungicides to keep it free from moss, pests and weeds that may harm the environment and then there’s the watering during the hot summer months. That’s more towards the utility bills. 

If you suffer from hay-fever, and that’s not just you but the children and the pets, then you’ve got a problem on your hands, because after all that hard work keeping it neat and tidy, but you can’t even spend any time in it. 

Fake grass install will change how you use your garden – in a good way.

With artificial grass, all the family can enjoy it. You’ll also be saving money because you won’t need to mow your lawn, water it or use harmful chemicals. The only care and attention an artificial lawn requires is regular brushing and a quick clean with some soapy water, and that’s it. There’ll be no muddy footprints, no grass stains and no grass and mud being dragged into the kitchen and through to the rest of the house.

Artificial grass lawn – for those beautiful days out in the garden, all year round.

All your pets can use the grass for play and if they use the toilet, then any solids can be removed quickly and disposed of hygienically, and any liquids are drained away safely through to the surface below. Any debris that blows in during autumn and winter can be simply picked up and placed in the bin. 

The Turf Warehouse – for the best in artificial grasses.

If you think you’d like a fake grass install in your garden, then why not get in touch with us here at The Turf Warehouse. We have a wide range of artificial grass you can choose from and we can even help you choose one that’s suitable for your garden and then you’re all set. Installation doesn’t take long and once it’s down that’s it. You can start using it after a couple of days once it’s settled.

Today we’re talking about artificial grass drainage. By talking about it we create a better understanding, which will therefore lead to more informed buying when it comes to artificial grass installation, and artificial grass is well worth the investment.

Artificial grass will come with a built-in drainage system.

However, sometimes it may need extra help such as a granite/stone-based layer or a sand base. This is usually laid beneath a weed membrane to keep weeds out. If we install it for you, once we’ve dug your lawn up and removed it, we will naturally place these two surfaces beneath the grass, so once it’s been laid, you have a safe waterlog and weed free artificial grass lawn.

Waterlogging isn’t a great look for your lawn.

Your natural lawn is more likely to become waterlogged because it simply doesn’t have these layers underneath it, nor the protective factors built into an artificial lawn we’re going to mention in a minute. In poor weather then, it’s likely to become waterlogged, and also muddy and sodden with muddy bald patches where the grass has worn away. By having artificial grass installed you eliminate this issue because it comes with the underlayers we’ve described, and it has its own special drainage system too! 

A clever little drainage system built into your artificial grass lawn.

Artificial grass also comes with tiny holes in it and so acts as a clever little drainage system in itself, that’s aside from the weed membrane and sand layer. It means that it’s permeable and water will drain away to the layers beneath, sometimes into the soil below if you don’t have a granite or sand layer. In some cases, it’s not necessary to have a sand or ground stone or granite layer beneath because the soil underneath the artificial grass doesn’t need it. You will need to get your lawn checked by a professional to decide this is the case. You’ll also find that when your artificial grass lawn gets liquids spilled on it, whether that’s from the sky above, or from much loved pets, it will drain away through the tiny holes to the soil or drainage layer beneath. You’ll also find that artificial grass won’t become muddy and patchy like a natural lawn and will retain its lush green appearance throughout the year, regardless of the weather.

No matter how complex or unusual your lawn is, artificial grass will always fit in nicely.

Whatever your garden is like, whether it has water features, pathways, unique flower arrangements, an artificial lawn will always compliment it. No soggy waterlogged ground, but lush, green spring/summer artificial grass in the most beautiful shade of green all year round. 

The Turf Warehouse – for quality artificial grasses that transform your garden into something really special.

So, are you now convinced that artificial grass is for you now you know how amazing the drainage system is? We hope so, we have a versatile selection of grasses to choose from, and one of them is bound to suit your garden needs, so why not get in touch and let us help you choose which one is right for you?

We’re almost halfway through January 2020 already, and we’ve survived and left Christmas behind. You may be spending several minutes of your day staring forlornly into the garden wondering why in hell did you leave your garden to the devices of winter and all it brings. You may also be wondering about where you’ll start when it comes to your garden, the bushes, the trees, the lawn, or the flower beds perhaps?

If you have artificial grass installed, you can kiss the lawn goodbye for a start.

That’ll just leave you with the hedges, trees and flower beds. An artificial lawn only requires the occasional clean and brush up and removal of any debris that’s flown in on the wind, and that’s it. There’s no mowing and no chemicals to add to keep the bugs, weeds and moss away. 

Allergen Free.

In the summer it’s even better because if you suffer with allergies, you can go outside and spend time in the summer in a way you never could before. You’ll be safe in the knowledge that your new grass isn’t going to be giving you any hay-fever anytime soon. That also applies to pets and children, so you can all go outside and spend time in the sun. 

Do you have a family that enjoys spending time outdoors?

Then perhaps you’re a little fed up with the amount of grass and mud that gets dragged in on the reg from the garden outside. That’s more cleaning up you have to do as well as everything else and with artificial grass that’s it, over and done with. Just a nice lush green lawn all year long. 

Dogs love artificial grass, they won’t be put off by the change of surface and neither will cats, if you have any.

Artificial grass for dogs and pets has grown increasingly more popular over the last few years. Your four-legged friend will love the surface and if they do go outside and use it as a toilet, then have no fear, solids are easy to pick up and dispose of and liquids will drain nicely through the surface to the permeable membrane beneath.

Artificial grass is extremely durable and will last for many years.

It’s also low maintenance and once it’s installed that’s it, it’ll give you years of pleasure. You’ll be able to go out in it whenever you want and never have to worry about allergies, the pets, the children or even yourself. It’s just a gorgeously pleasant surface to relax and unwind on. 

The Turf Warehouse – for quality artificial grass installation.

Convinced you’d like to make 2020 the year you change over to a fake grass install? Well, look no further than The Turf Warehouse. We have a wide range of quality piles from which to choose and we can even help you choose the right one for your needs. We can also come and install it for you if you wish, you can install it yourself, but perhaps you really don’t feel like putting yourself through all that hard work and would prefer leaving it to a professional. That’s great, we love to install our artificial grasses, and help our clients make the most of it by making sure it’s a great fit.
Get in touch today and we can discuss your needs and what type of artificial grass is right for you.

So, winter’s here and for many, their artificial turf will have got them through the worst of it this time come February. What about the rest of you? If you haven’t decided yet what side of the fence, you’re on when it comes to fake grass perhaps this post will help. Winter can bring all kinds of problems during the winter months, but with an artificial turf lawn, you’ve won the battle.

No more grass stains, muddy patches and dirty kitchen floors.

In winter the grass can get muddy and wet, and that means grass, grass stains, mud and all sorts dragged into the house. With synthetic grass you won’t get this anymore, it’ll just be pristine lush green grass every single day. Children will want to play out in it, and actually be able to and dogs and cats can come in and go out as they please without you having to rub them down when they’ve entered so they don’t get all that wet grass on the furniture. You’ll find that artificial grass is extremely accessible in the winter so you don’t have to stay away from it in the same way as you would with a natural grass lawn and its lumps, bumps and muddy frozen bits. 

Run a sports venue?

Perhaps you’re in charge of a keen and enthusiastic football team but sometimes you can’t play because the weather has ruined the condition of the grass and a game isn’t possible. Then you have to cancel, but if you had artificial turf this simply would be necessary because you’d have a pitch that’s always in immaculate condition, result? No cancelled games and no inconvenience. 

Little to no maintenance in comparison to real grass.

The amount of maintenance involved with a fake grass lawn is minimal in comparison to natural grass. All you have to do is rake it gently with plastic rake or a broom with plastic bristles, this is so the blades aren’t permanently damaged with the use of metal implements. That and the occasional wash with soap and water in spring and summer and removing debris you find on a regular basis, so you keep the lawn clear.

The Turf Warehouse – for quality artificial turf that gives you longevity, accessibility with no more mowing.

So, if you don’t currently have fake grass have, we now convinced you of its obvious benefits in winter? We hope you have, but if you have any questions about what we’ve discussed today, give us a call and we’ll do all we can to help.

The good news is that your artificial grass doesn’t need the same amount of care as natural grass. There is a minimum amount of care needed, but there are no chemicals required, no mowing and no sprinklers either which means you save on utility bills This is why so many people choose artificial grass, because it’s versatile and minus all that hard work. It’s probably one of the many fantastic reasons why you chose artificial grass.

Routine maintenance.

However, even in winter, you’ll need to carry out some routine maintenance on your artificial grass. It’ll be far more manageable and there’ll be less to do come Spring. Don’t worry it will only require little attention throughout the winter months with some basic, routine tasks. 

What can I do when there’s frost and snow?

It shouldn’t have a massive impact on your artificial grass lawn; however, it might be a good idea not to walk on it because the fibres could snap. Therefore, try to stay off it if you can. Leave snow and frost to drain away as it melts through the grass, it should have a good drainage system built into it, and you will have sorted this out prior to installation. Underneath your grass there should be a good layer of quality material that will help to absorb any liquids that come through.

Plastic implements.

Use a plastic shovel to remove snow and frost if it becomes impacted and there’s lots of it, because that can harm the grass if it freezes and turns into blocks of ice.  Don’t use your hands or you could tear the fibres. You can also try using salt, but this shouldn’t be something you make a habit of.

Leaves and debris.

If you collect this regularly you should avoid a nasty build up. Rake up debris and any leaves off the grass, or use a soft brush, this should help keep your lawn lush looking and green. When you use implements to sweep and take things off the grass surface, make sure you use ones made from plastic and any brooms should have soft bristles. If you care for your lawn on a regular basis in this way it shouldn’t be that much work to do once the lighter days of Spring arrive. 

Tarpaulins.

You can also use a tarpaulin if you’re expecting really bad weather that includes some serious snowfall, but it’s not essential. It may give you peace of mind, and it will give you less hard work once it’s removed as your artificial grass should be relatively snow free. All our artificial grasses are made to last, whatever the weather throws at it, and it comes with a superb drainage system, so the snow and frost just drains right through it.

If you’ve been sitting on the fence about artificial grass then we’re going to be looking at the differences between the two, and hopefully convince you it’s worth installing if you’re unsure. We love both of course, but we know our customers have different preferences, so we’ll focus on both and you can then make an informed decision about artificial grass installation and what you think is best for your garden.

Natural grass both smells and looks great

You’ll find that natural grass is great if you want a lush, heavenly scented grass lawn that looks and feels beautiful during the spring and summer. However, to keep it this way requires a lot of work, tending to its needs with dedication, so it maintains its appearance. This is fine if you have time on your hands to do it, because by keeping it in pristine condition it’ll remain useful, if it’s neglected in anyway it’s soon going to lose it’s charm, be difficult to walk on, and parts of it may eventually need to replaced. 

Regular mowing weed and insect control and watering during summer

Natural grass needs to be mowed regularly, and you’ll need to know when the time is right to mow it, how much you’re taking off the blades, and also treat it with a number of different chemicals if you want to rid yourself of weeds, insects and moss. However, keep in mind that if you do it, it’ll be quite time consuming. There’s a lot you can do with grass and there is nothing more beautiful than well-tended natural turf, but if you lead a busy life, then you may find it almost impossible to keep it in the kind of condition you want. 

What’s great about artificial grass then?

On the other hand, if you do decide to take the plunge with artificial grass a lot of hard work will be eliminated. Modern day artificial grass doesn’t look anything like it used to, and now looks incredibly natural and authentic. Installation isn’t a doddle, but it’s not overly complex either. You’ll need to consider placing a membrane beneath the surface, so any liquids that pass through the grass will drain below. You may also need to carry out some groundwork in making sure its level depending on how straight the surface of your lawn is.

Maintenance is minimal with fake grass

Once you’ve installed your artificial grass you won’t need to do much with it. It’ll need the odd brush to remove debris, and perhaps the odd bit of cleaning with a detergent and some water, but that’s it. It will look green and lush all year round without any hard work and there’ll be no water, mowing or chemicals required or removing weeds by hand. 

You now have the choice of both natural and fake grass

Fake grass takes away any hard work, and if you are increasingly unable to do this due to work commitments, you’re away a lot, or perhaps you’ve suffered an illness or an injury that’s left you with less mobility, then this type of garden surface is ideal. What’s great is that you have the choice of both, depending on what you prefer, and how much time you can dedicate to it.

If you’d like to find out more then get in touch with us here at The Turf Warehouse and we’ll be more than happy to discuss your choices with you.

Are you worried that should you change from a natural lawn to fake grass that your pets won’t like it? Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. We’ve seen many of our customers have pet-friendly artificial grass installed in their garden and they’ve seen their pets flourish. That’s because our artificial grass is better and more superior than it was several years ago. It’s non-slip, durable and extremely versatile, and saves you so much in hard work. Trust us when we say that your pets are going to love it. 

Comfort, softness and no bald patches.

Fake grass for pets is all about comfort, because like us they like something soft, warm and comforting to walk, run and play on. Our fake grasses are exactly like that and as a result we’ve seen dogs adapt to it pretty quickly, cats aren’t too fussed either way because as we know, cats are just fine as long as they’re getting their favourite biscuits and fuss when they need it. It’s so similar to a real grass lawn, looking almost identical in touch and feel, the one (among many others) good thing about it and a clear benefit, is that it can’t be dug up or suffer bald patches in winter. 

A surface that’s fun to walk or play on.

It can make so much difference to a dog’s quality of life and artificial grass for dogs offers the kind of surface that’s kind for those short furry legs. The grass is always the same length and you can get shorter piles, so your dog is always walking on the same surface, the grass is never too much for them to navigate. This will encourage him/her to go out more often so you if you can’t manage a walk that day, the garden is going to offer them some much needed exercise and fresh air. 

Shorter piles, easy to clean.

We mentioned shorter piles, and there are some distinctive advantages to having a shorter pile, because it’s easier to clean and it’s far easier to scoop up solids and dispose of them hygienically. Aesthetically, it also looks beautiful, like a freshly mown summer lawn – and that’s all year long. 

Natural grass vs artificial grass.

Sometimes your dog or cat likes to pick a spot and that becomes their favourite place to sit, when there’s natural grass however, that can get slightly bald because the grass can die. With artificial grass you can wash these particular areas with soap and water and brush them gently to bring up the individual pile if it’s flattened slightly through constantly lying on it. If they kick back, or your worried their claws will tear into it, don’t worry, fake grass is tough and has an even tougher backing that’s extremely durable. It won’t get ruined by people or animals enjoying themselves!

The Turf Warehouse – for the best in artificial grasses for dogs and cats.

Fake grass doesn’t need much looking after other than the occasional brushing or soapy wash. For the rest of the time, you can just enjoy it – your pets will thank you for it! Why not give us a call now to discuss your requirements, and a member of our team will be more than happy to talk things through with you.

In this month’s post we’re going over the many myths that come up about fake grass. We’re going to look at 5 of the most common, and you can then weigh up whether or not you want to invest in it if you haven’t already. Artificial turf is so beneficial in terms of freeing up your time so you can do other things and enjoy your garden, and spend less of it maintaining your garden. This can include anything from using chemicals to rid it of weeds, moss and pests, and mowing it on a regular basis to keep it tidy.

Myth 1 – Artificial grass doesn’t look real.

Artificial grass has come a long way since the heady days of football when it was first used as a turf to play on. Back in those days it was known as Astroturf, but it’s come on in leaps and bounds since. It’s now so authentic looking and with different piles so you can have whatever type of fake grass you think is right for your type of property. What you will find is that it looks green and lush all year long.

Myth 2 – It’s really bad for the environment.

No in fact it helps the environment. If you’ve been relying on chemicals to keep those pesky weeds and insects at bay you won’t have to do that anymore with artificial turf. What’s more, you won’t have to use water for hosing in summer or use electricity to mow your lawn, so you’ll save money and energy, thus helping the environment. 

Myth 3 – It’s not safe for children.

Artificial grass for children is safe. We know that plenty of our customers use it in their gardens for their families. If you have a history of allergies, your children are going to love artificial grass because it means they can go out into the garden and play, without you worrying that they’ll be sneezing and coughing. Also, plenty of nurseries use artificial turf and it’s a great success with their children, it means they can go out in it when they want, so no muddy, waterlogged patches to worry about in winter. Also, if they fall over they’ll have a soft cushioned landing. 

Myth 4 – Fake grass lawns are too expensive.

No they’re not! Here at The Turf Warehouse we have a versatile range of different piles of artificial grass, and working together we can find something that’s in line with your budget. It’s become so popular, it’s nowhere near as expensive as it used to be when it first became more widely known.

Myth 5 – It’s not safe for pets.

Nonsense! Artificial grass for pets is a great benefit to your furry friend using it to play on as well as their toilet. As long as you have a permeable backing for your fake grass, any liquids will drain away naturally. Any solids can be lifted and placed in the bin as you would normally on a natural lawn.
