Please Note;

1.1 Product qualities. If the services include the supply of artificial grass, you should take note of the following qualities of artificial grasses which will form part of the description of the goods and / or services:

(a) Creases. The structure, storage and / or transit of the artificial grass may cause natural creases in the product. Creases will ordinarily flatten within 3 months of the supply and / or installation of the artificial grass. We will use all reasonable efforts in order to reduce visible creases such as unrolling and exposing the artificial grass to warm sunlight before installation, gently pulling the edge of the artificial grass to encourage the creases to smooth or exposing the latex backing of the artificial grass to sunlight and gently stretching by hand. Creases should not be considered as a defect of the product or services unless the appearance of such creases are severe.

(b) Lines. A visible straight line may appear in the artificial grass which may have been caused by the devices used during the manufacturing and / or alignment process or during the cutting process. We will use all reasonable efforts in order to remove lines such as exposing the artificial grass to warm sunlight and gently manipulating the fibres by hand or with a power brush to remove the line. Lines should not be considered as a defect of the product or services unless the appearance of such lines are severe.

(c) Joints / seams. We will use all reasonable efforts to make all joints or seams in the artificial grass as invisible as possible when installing the product. However, you should note that on occasion, joints or seams may be visible due to the nature / molecular structure of the product and this cannot always be avoided in the installation process. Joints / seams should not be considered as a defect of the product or services unless the appearance of such joints / seams are severe.

(d) Slight colour differential. Although we have made every effort to ensure that the artificial grass supplied will be consistent in colour, it is possible that artificial grass from separate batches will have a slight colour differential due to the manufacturing process. A slight colour differential in the batches of artificial grass supplied and / or installed should not be considered a product or services defect unless such colour differential is severe.

(e) Reflective surfaces. Our artificial grass is manufactured using polyethylene and polypropylene and therefore reflective or magnifying surfaces such as glass, clear plastic or otherwise could cause scorching of the grass. It is your responsibility to prevent any such damage occurring to the artificial grass and we will not be liable for any scorching which occurs. We are able to provide a repair service for scorched artificial grass, for a fee, if you require.

(f) High traffic zones. Any areas of the artificial grass which are subject to high traffic may flatten over time due to pressure on the grass blades, causing these to compress. This can alter the appearance of these sections of the grass compared to those which have not been subject to compression. This is natural wear and tear and we will not be liable for any flattening which occurs due to compression over time.

(g) Pile. The grass blades may flatten if heavy objects (such as furniture) are placed on to the artificial grass. This is natural wear and tear and we will not be liable for any flattening which occurs due to compression over time. If flattening occurs, we recommend brushing against the pile to lift the grass blades.

(h) Play equipment. You must inform us during our Site Visit if any part of the installation area is to be used for children’s play equipment such as swings, slides, football nets or trampolines, so that we can strengthen the sub-base layer or offer an alternative product to account for increased impaction. We also recommend that any play equipment is rotated around the lawn to ensure that any flattening of the grass is minimised.

(i) Drainage. You must notify us of any areas of existing water pooling on the lawn or any other drainage issues at the property at the time of our site visit / quotation. We do not guarantee that the installation of artificial grass will alleviate any pooling or drainage issues at your property.

(j) Weeds. Weeds may develop around the perimeter edges of the artificial grass as there will be a small gap between the weed-block material and the edging. This is a natural occurrence and we accept no responsibility for such weed growth. Weeds and moss may also grow through the artificial grass if it is not maintained correctly by you.

How Do You Clean an Artificial Lawn Used by Pets?

Don’t panic if pets “do their business” on it, our fake grass is permeable and easy to clean. What’s more the artificial grass fibers will remain completely undamaged, the pet urine will naturally drain through the grasses drainage holes. However we recommended hosing the area down with water especially in warmer weather and using a disinfectant from time to time.
