FAQs Artificial Grass Information Advice & Help

Luxury Grass Installations has been established for many years and has built up a reliable and trustworthy reputation in Nottinghamshire.

We have been at the forefront of the installation and supply of synthetic grass to the domestic and commercial markets throughout Britain and Europe, and have installed for many prestigious events and private customers including; Amanda Holden, Cannes Film Festival, Canary Wharf and Rolls Royce. Each project was completed using quality products which offered fantastic value for money, and were professionally installed with minimum disruption.

We have a friendly and experienced sales and customer service team to advise and assist you on choosing the correct product, and we are developing a UK network of installers to ensure your project or garden is installed to the highest possible standard. Our licensed installers take time to make sure the ground preparation is correct, which gives you peace of mind and protects your investment.

Any product in the garden lawn collectionis perfect for dog owners. Lazy Supreme, Wonder Yarn and Lazy Signature have been particularly popular and have been installed in many gardens with dogs and the customer comments have been very positive. The high-density tufting and sand-filling protects the pile from dog claws.

To deal with dog mess, remove the bulk of the mess and use our Poopcleanz product. This ensures the smells are washed away. For Dog Wee use our Peecleanz product.

Yes. Our range of grasses are lovely and soft and loved by kids and pets. The kids can continue to play ball games and dogs can roll and run around without turning your garden into a mudbath!

We invest heavily in product development to achieve a range of fake grass that looks and feels so natural that people cannot tell it is artificial. We have received hundreds of letters and reviews from satisfied customers that have had our products installed, explaining that their neighbours, friends, and relatives that have visited have not even realised they have a synthetic lawn!

We recommend using warm soapy water and a stiff brush to clean shorter-pile grasses. Jet washes and hoses can also be used with care. To remove leaves on longer-pile grasses either use a blower, light rake, or brush.

To prevent weeds or moss forming, we advise you use a weed killer solution twice yearly on the whole of the lawn area.

For dog mess, remove the bulk of the mess and again use a soapy water solution and brush the area if required or use our Poopcleanz product. This ensures the smells are washed away. For Dog Wee use Peecleanz.

We accept most major credit cards (excluding AMEX), cheques and bank transfers on all supply-only orders. For professional installation, a deposit is required to secure your booking with the balance payable on completion of the works. The installation is usually paid for by bank transfer or credit card, but please discuss the best option for you with your licensed installer. We also offer consumer finance packages in selected areas of the UK to enable you to simply spread the cost of payment.

It is estimated that your LazyLawn will last up to 15 years through normal use. Our artificial grass range is fully UV stabilised. All professionally installed lawns come with a genuine guarantee. The length of the guarantee depends on the turf chosen and the project. Typically, there is a 10-year UV guarantee, a 7-year product failure guarantee and a 2-year installation warranty, which is upheld by your installation company and not the LazyLawn brand. The company completing your project can provide you with a specification sheet outlining all the product details, plus a warranty.

It is best to use a sand-filled grass like Lazy Supreme, as it has a good fire rating (tested to BS 4790). We would always recommend placing the BBQ on top of slabs or bricks and avoid getting any hot surfaces too close to the turf. Our products are made of plastic and will be damaged if exposed to very high temperatures.

Our trained installers can usually install a regular-sized lawn (approx 40-60 sqm) in just one day. Bigger gardens that require significant groundwork and preparation will take 2-3 days. Your professional installer will be able to inform you of the time scale during the quotation process.

Yes, they can be over a 10-year period. If you were to add up 10 years of watering, feeding, cost of two mowers and (in many cases) the cost of re-turfing, a lUXURY can be a cheaper alternative. Also consider the time saved at the weekend and reduced waste in your garden bin!

One of the main reasons to buy artificial grass is to save yourself from muddy messes. Trulawn always lay an aggregate sub-base when installing to ensure easy and free draining.

After the existing lawn is removed to a depth of between 60mm and 80mm, a stabilisation geo-textile is laid to prevent any materials migrating into the ground. A sub-base consisting of type 1 limestone is then installed to a depth of between 40mm and 60mm. Limestone is a porous type of aggregate, which allows for reliable drainage. Then a layer of sharp sand is installed to a depth of between 15mm and 25mm. Both of these layers are compacted individually and smoothed off at an even and consistent level ensuring a stable draining base for years to come.

Artificial grass can be installed all year round. In fact, artificial grass is actually best installed in the autumn and winter months as the ground isn’t as hard as in the summer. The durable nature of artificial lawns means that they can be enjoyed whatever the time of year, without the risk of damage or excessive mud, and with a quick drying time following rain.

Wintry conditions such as snow and frost don’t cause problems, but as with any outdoor surface, care should be taken if ice has formed. If however there is heavy rain then we would advise our installers to look at an alternative date to give you the best installation.
