How does the artificial grass compare to a real grass lawn?

Do grasses require sand in them?
Most of our grasses are deisgned to be simply rolled out and fixed. We do recommend sand infill as it adds the weight to keep any areas of the grass without fixings in place and we do this as standard on all of our installations.
The sand adds extra security to the pile helping it to stay upright. We can add an oduour neutralising infill should you have pets to prevent any unwanted odours in the hotter months
What about the size and shape of my garden?
The grass comes in 4m rolls, 2m roll widths and 5m roll widths on certain grasses by whatever length you require up to 25m.
It is your responsibilty to measure the length and width of the garden to calculate what roll width and length you require.
