When investing in artificial grass, there are a wide variety of options and brands and it’s important to know that astro turf grass products aren’t all made equal. So how do you know if you are choosing the right one? At Enduroturf, we recommend that you ensure you’re getting the best quality product at a competitive price and that the product will stand the test of time with a good warranty to back it up.
With the many benefits of artificial grass – like no more mowing, weeding, or upkeep – it’s easy to see why this option is becoming increasingly popular. But how do you choose the right brand and type of artificial grass for your needs, and how long can you expect it to last?
Choosing the Right Brand and Type
Quality is one of the most important factors in determining the lifespan of your artificial lawn. That’s why it’s important to choose a reputable brand and avoid cheaper alternatives found in big box stores. At Enduroturf, we use only locally sourced materials and Australian-made yarn designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate, ensuring the highest quality product for our customers.
But quality isn’t the only factor to consider. Your needs and intended use of the artificial grass will also play a role in determining its longevity. For example, a grass designed for pets, kids, or a sporting oval will have different requirements than a grass designed for a restaurant courtyard. At Enduroturf, we offer custom grass solutions tailored to meet your specific needs, so you can be sure you’re getting a product that’s fit for purpose.
Wear and Tear
While quality and purpose are important, the wear and tear of pedestrian traffic can also affect the longevity of your artificial grass. However, at Enduroturf, our grass was designed for high durability, so it can withstand heavy use over the years. In comparison, many cheaper alternatives will wear out quickly.
Caring for Your Artificial Grass
While artificial grass requires less maintenance than traditional lawns, it does need some basic care to ensure its durability. This includes removing any accumulated debris, like leaves or pet waste, and cleaning any light staining with a 5% solution of mild household detergent and warm water. For heavy staining, you can follow up with a sponge mop using a 3% solution of household ammonia and hot water. Regular maintenance simply involves brushing your grass occasionally with a stiff brush and giving it a hose down. Applying infill regularly can also provide added durability, drainage, and performance.
Warranty and Expectations
At Enduroturf, our artificial grass products have warranties of up to 15 years. By following our recommended maintenance tips, you can keep your grass looking fresh and new for years to come.
