What Is Artificial Grass?

Artificial Grass or Leisure Grass is natural looking plastic replacement for turf. This easy and low maintenance surface is becoming increasingly common in domestic properties due to the low maintenance and year-round properties.

With the increase in popularity of artificial grass in the UK, we often get asked what this is and where it is normally installed.

00:00 Hi, guys. It’s Dan here. And today we’re going to be answering the question, what is artificial grass?

00:04 So artificial grass, otherwise known as synthetic turf, is a low-maintenance, all-year-round solution to natural grass and it can be used 12 months throughout the year. This can be required in different specifications, such as in a garden or some clients would like a full-size pitch installed.
