Artificial Grass Buying Guide

As with most home and garden products, there is a wide choice of products suppliers to consider when buying artificial grass.

It’s all about finding that balance between value for money and quality and we believe that we provide both in good measure!

Follow our steps to make sure you get the best service from start to finish.

Step 1 – Find a quality product

The product you choose can define your entire experience, making or breaking your quest for a beautiful back garden. Namgrass offer an incredible product, but the real value we offer is tailor-made professional installation via our curated network of installers.

  • See if they offer free samples – order samples of grass types that seem like they’d might fit your garden. You can order free samples from us.

We highly recommend that you grab a few free samples and put them in situ – this way you can get a real feel for how your garden could change. Do you like a short, freshly mown pile height or a longer, more natural grass?

  • Find a product that provides a guarantee or warranty. Why is this important? Because it shows that the company is assuring that you will receive a great product.

Look for a great warranty and aftercare programme. Artificial grass companies typically offer a 5 year guarantee for their products. We offer a minimum 10 year guarantee because the quality of our products is unrivalled by our competitors. This means you don’t need to worry about longevity.

  • Things to keep an eye out for:
    • Good artificial grasses have UV Protection technology so it doesn’t fade.
    • Realistic grasses have great texture – keep an eye out for multiple types of fibre for a more natural look.
    • Drainage is really important – without it, your garden could turn into a swimming pool.
    • How hardwearing is the grass? It needs to endure energetic kids and pets running about!
    • Your warranty means that you don’t have to worry about the product’s longevity.

Step 2 – Find a quality supplier/installer

Whether you’re confident enough to lay your own artificial grass or want to sit back and let the experts take care of it, you’re going to want to find out about:

  • What edge you’re going to put in place
  • What kind of padding your new lawn will have, and whether this will suit your needs
  • How long it’s going to take, and when it can be done. The installation process is pretty weather-independent
  • Maintenance
    • Most of our products can be maintained and kept looking perky with a simple brush or hoover.
    • If you’re going to take care of maintenance yourself, you might want to check our guide to maintaining artificial grass.

Step 3 – Enjoy your new low-effort garden!
