Yes, if you have a lot of traffic running over the top of the artificial grass, it will crush and bend just like real grass, but if you want it upright, all you have to do is brush it against the pile to raise it back up again.
Yes, we offer many different types of artificial grass. Whether you use your garden for sport, a children’s play area, or simply to relax and unwind, theres an Easigrass product to suit you.
Easigrass is committed to minimising negative impact upon the environment. Products are made from recycled matter and our Easibug and Twizzy team vehicles are all eco-respectful. For dry areas where water is at a premium, Easigrass helps communities conserve precious water sources.
Our artificial grass is fully adaptable to both use inside and out, both dry areas such as a living room or office and also within a damp bathroom environment.
In periods of strong sustained sunlight the artificial grass, being a dark green man made product , will get hot. On the occasions when this may be encountered it’s just a simple case of wearing some soft shoes rather than bear feet. If lying on it you may well want to place a blanket on top first . For a quick cool you can give it a spray with cold water, although this will quickly evaporate.
Toddlers will find it uncomfortable when too hot so they will need to be kept on top of a blanket. The same heat can be experienced on a sunny beach when sand temperatures can rise rapidly when exposed to periods of strong sunlight. The grass is fully UV protected so it will not fade.
Easigrass is perforated so any excess water simply seeps through into the soil underneath.
Our artificial grass is made from Polyurethane and Polyethylene.
Take measurements across the longest and widest points of your area. You will then need to round these measurements up to the nearest metre. Then multiply the width by the length and this will give you your square meterage requirement.
A 50 square metre garden can be laid in a single day.
We recommend that our artificial grass is installed by our professionally trained installation teams, which will ensure the highest quality.
Artificial grass will require professional cleaning, brushing and sweeping at least once a year. Other than that, all you need to do is keep it clear and rinse off any dirt or stains.
Easigrass stipulates that each and every installation needs to take place nearby to flora and fauna: a tree, shrubs, plants or pots. Specific products can be recommended upon request.
Easigrass is the safest and most rigorously tested artificial grass available to buy in South Africa today. Wet or dry, and at school or at home, Easigrass independently tested to EN:1177.2008 British Standards for impact attenuating playground surfacing, as well as tested in accordance with the HIC (Head Injury Criterion). - need SA info here?
If any pets mess up your artificial lawn, simply clear it up and wash it through with clean water in order to prevent any smells or stains occurring during dry periods.
With regular maintenance, Easigrass can last between 15 and 20 years.
A static charge coming from the grass is a very rare thing to encounter as it is a result of area conditions. It is not something we can see or detect prior to installation.
You may have felt it before when rubbing your feet along a piece of newly laid internal carpet then touching something earthed with your finger and hearing a little click and feeling a small shock sensation.
It is also something not to be too concerned about as in the majority of cases it will eventually go. It is never a problem in the winter months with rain fall ensuring everything is well earthed.
But gardens that have been installed in a static prone area can easily be treated with a mixture of fabric conditioner and water spread over the area in a standard water can with a perforated spout this increases the surface tension of the grass not allowing the static charge to effect anything.
