Frequently Asked Questions


How do outdoor conditions affect artificial grass?

  • Sun - artificial turf is made from fibres that have a very high UV protection, which means that it won’t fade.
  • Rain – a very small amount of water may drain through synthetic lawns, but generally the water will run off or evaporate. This means that kids and pets playing on artificial turf after rain don’t return covered in mud!
  • Pets – pet urine will not bleach artificial turf and the consistency of the synthetic lawn tends to discourage dogs from digging, allowing damage-free play.

What colours are available?

EPDM and TPV are available in 16 different colours, with bright inclusions like pink and green apple, as well as in speckled combinations. This colour range gives you real freedom in designing rubber playground surfaces.

CSBR is available in 16 more muted colours as well as a range of speckled combinations.

Our Synthetic Grass is manufactured in hues that match natural grass colours. This means that the only way neighbours will be able to tell you have artificial turf is when your lawn stays green over a hot, dry summer.
