Frequently Asked Questions

Is Lux Lawns artificial grass safe for children?
Yes. All our artificial lawn grasses are completely safe for children, they are super soft to the touch, non-slip and low friction which is why we install them in schools and nurseries as safety play surfaces. Loved by kids and parents alike our lawns give you all the fun of the outdoors with none of the grass stains or muddy mess.

Is Lux Lawns artificial turf safe for pets?
Yes. Pets love our artificial grass. Dogs can run and roll-around without turning your garden into a mudbath! The grass won’t be discoloured by urine and dog-mess can be easily lifted making it a practical alternative to natural grass. All our installs come complete with a sand infill that protects the pile from clawing pets.

Why does a Lux Lawn look so real?
Experience. We have over 15 years experience of artificial grass fitting and our professional installation teams have completed thousands of garden lawn transformations. We only use the latest, high quality products which combine multi-tones and layers with the highest tufting density possible to give you the most realistic lawn grasses available.

What about maintenance?
Our artificial lawns require very little upkeep compared to their natural counterparts - part of the reason why they’re so popular. No mowing, watering, weeding or feeding required. Just brush off any debris/leaves when necessary. To prevent weeds or moss forming on top of the surface, we advise you use a long lasting weed killer solution twice yearly.

Will weeds grow through the artificial lawn?

Why sand-infill?
The many benefits of sand-infilling are such that nearly all our artificial grass installations come complete with one. Importantly, the sheer weight of the sand stabilises the entire system allowing the grass to compliment the natural contours of your garden promoting a very natural appearance. Sand infilling also helps in the following areas: provides “foundations” at the base of the pile helping the grass to maintain it’s structure, prevents damage from pets, removes static shock risk, reduces likelihood of theft, reduces fire risk.
