How long does synthetic grass last?
How long artificial grass lasts depends on the quality of it’s manufacture. If you’re talking about the cheap roll of artificial grass that you can buy from most DIY stores, you might get a few years out of it at most. And that’s ignoring the fact that signs of wear and flattening will begin to show after only a few months.
Many consumers actually opt for this cheap alternative thinking that it will save them money, but this is a false economy.
The lifespan is significantly shorter than higher-end artificial surfaces, and it’ll need replacing sooner. Furthermore, these products look and feel cheap, and can ruin the overall aesthetic of your garden.
Premium artificial grass can last at least 20 years
That is at least 20 years of never having to cut the grass! It’s 20 years of never having to worry about grass maintenance, and it’s perhaps even 20 years of having the best garden on the street.
How to choose artificial grass that will last
Check the Guarantee
When researching artificial grass, pay special attention to the wording of the guarantee – what exactly does it cover? Often you’ll see a “ten-year guarantee” being advertised as standard, but on closer inspection, you’ll see that this warranty only applies the turf’s “colour fastness” or its “UV stability”.
What this means is that only the grass’ ability to stay green is covered in the warranty – we think that should be the absolute minimum, which is why our guarantees cover the grass, as well as the base and installation!
Why does our turf last so long?
Wonderlawn artificial grass lasts longer for a number of reasons, but it comes down to two main factors: first, we use the highest-quality materials available, and second, our installation process is unrivalled. This isn’t a lawn which can simply be rolled on top of an existing surface, this is a lawn which requires a team of professionally trained installers and specialist machinery.
We’re not using contractors, we train our own franchisees to our high installation standards. This allows us to be sure our grass is installed correctly and to offer a 10 year guarantee on it.
