Frequently Asked Questions:

Why should I choose Forever Green Lawns over other artificial grass providers?

Here at Forever Green Lawns  we believe that our standard of service and the quality of our installations is second to none, due to our vast experience, knowledgeable & friendly staff.

Does the size and shape of my garden make a difference?

Artificial grass from Forever Green comes in 1 metre, 2 metre, 3 metre & 4 metre width rolls and can come up to 25 metres in length. All you need to do is measure your garden and calculate the width and length required, we can work out the rest for you.

What maintenance will Artificial Turf need?

The only maintenance required is the removal of debris & the occasional brushing; this can be done using a leaf blower, plastic leaf rake or a stiff broom.

Where can Artificial Grass be used?

Virtually anywhere! Front & back lawns, patios, roof gardens, terraces, balconies, children’s play areas, around swimming pools & hot tubs, conservatories, over decking, exhibitions & shows, the scope is unlimited.

Will weeds grow through the Artificial Turf?

No. Our installation process ensures that weeds will not grow through the grass due to the heavy duty Non-woven Geo-Textile membranes we lay during the fitting.

Does Rainwater lay on the surface of the grass?

No. The rainwater drains through the grass via pre-punched holes in the latex backing that are made during the manufacturing process, as long as the product is installed with a Type 1 (Limestone) crushed stone sub base this should not occur.

Can I fit & install myself?

Fitting artificial turf is easy as long as you take your time. We can provide you with detailed assistance over the phone, or you can follow our step-by-step installation guide for installation details. Find out how to install artificial grass here.

Can Artificial Grass be installed onto just a sharp sand sub-base?

Here at Forever Green Lawns  we would always recommend to anyone, that installing over a substantial sub base which consists of: Type 1 aggregate, a blinding layer of sharp sand, and then a heavy duty Geo-textile weed membrane would the best option. A firm sub-base is essential and the most important part of the installation process. Following this process will ensure that the grass will last for many years. However in some areas where drainage is excellent or very little foot traffic or use is envisaged, then it could be laid without the use of type 1 aggregate.

Is it okay for pets and their mess?

All of Forever Green Lawns artificial grass products are pet friendly. As with any normal lawn, any large pieces dog or animal faeces should be scooped up, the remaining small particles (if any) can be washed or hosed down as per normal. Cleaning fluids or products can be used (only use cold or lukewarm water) as they do not stain it, mark it, or discolour the products in any way.

How does the weather affect the artificial grass?

All of  Forever Green Lawns  products have a full 10 year UV stability warranty against discolouration. So come, rain, hail, frost, snow & sunshine, your artificial grass should always look perfect & you will always have a Forever Green Lawn.

What about BBQ’s and cigarettes?

History of Artificial grass: How & where it first originated.

The very first artificial grass was a long way from the realistic looking grass products we have in our back gardens today and was called ‘AstroTurf’™. Along with many other modern day can’t live without inventions such as, Aerosol Spray cans or Aspirin, AstroTurf™ originates from the USA.

AstroTurf™ was co-invented in 1965 by Donald L. Elbert, James M. and Robert T. Wright. It was patented in 1967 and originally sold under the name “ChemGrass”. It was renamed AstroTurf™ by Company employee John A. Wortmann after its first well-publicized use at the Houston Astrodome stadium Texas in 1966.

The original concept and main advantages of AstroTurf™ over natural grass was that it required little maintenance and would be ideal for indoor stadiums that did not require sunlight. For those reasons AstroTurf ™ was used in indoor and also outdoor stadiums across the whole of the USA.

In recent years fake grass has improved greatly from being a rather course, unconvincing and unforgiving product, into a high quality, tactile and realistic looking alternative to a grass lawn. These enormous improvements in quality and appearance, has led to its ever growing popularity within the domestic market.

As we live a more hectic lifestyle, and with longer working hours these days, more importance is being put on what little leisure time we have to spare, coupled with turning our gardens into safe havens for our children to play in, many more people are weighing up the advantages of having an artificial lawn installed.

With the benefits of no more mowing, no more watering, no more brown patches, no more bald spots, and no more mud being trod through the house by either dirty kids or dogs, in comparison to its high maintenance counterpart, grass, the advantages of a fake lawn speak for themselves.

AstroTurf™ is a registered trademark; Forever Green Lawns are not associated with AstroTurf™. We do not offer AstroTurf™. We sell artificial grass products.
