Artificial Grass – Fake Away Those Muddy Footprints!

Our footprints are as unique as those on our hands and fingertips; criss-crossed with a network of lines personal only to you, they are as good as a retina-print. From a staple plot device in countless mystery stories to the very marks supposedly left by Santa Claus himself, footprints are a powerful visual symbol but where you definitely DON’T want to see them is on clean floors in the workplace! With the wet weather recently, grassy areas have often turned into expanses of mud, some of which is bound to travel on shoes into buildings. How can you make sure this doesn’t happen?

The outward appearance of any business or organisation must be impeccably maintained; there is a simple, obvious and direct connection made in our minds between a shabby exterior and shoddy working practices. One of the ways to make sure it appears clean, welcoming and attractive is to maintain plenty of green areas including lawns though this can lead to the problems with mud you so desperately want to avoid. Not only do you save the inconvenience of extra cleaning, you save on the cost as well. The solution is - Artificial Grass.

Here we answer some of the top FAQs about installing, maintaining and using the realistic, hardwearing product in a safe and efficient manner.

Can artificial grass be successfully installed during winter?

Yes, it certainly can. It is actually often easier to carry out the installation due to the fact that the ground underneath is not so hard, dry and unworkable as it can be during the warmer months.

What if it snows?

Walking on artificial grass after snowfall is no less safe than walking on its natural counterpart in the same circumstance. Very low temperatures may cause snow to freeze solid and pose a safety risk.

How is the artificial grass maintained?

The product is designed for year-round use and its maintenance requirements differ little in the winter. Large items of debris, including litter and branches etc, should be manually removed while leaves and general dirt should be brushed out or blown clear using a leaf-blower.

Can artificial grass be damaged by winter weather?

As with all of the products we use in our diverse range of grounds maintenance services, we source our artificial grass from the most reputable suppliers. As such, the eternally-green lawn will not be damaged by even prolonged contact with ice and snow.
