Having a green lawn is everyone’s dream. Sometimes this can be hard if you have poor soil quality in your lawn or if your soil is not fertilized. Natural grass gets affected by the dry season and dries up. When faced with all these problems, most people in Brisbane opt for artificial grass for their lawn. Here are tips on getting the best artificial grass Brisbane installation.
Check Their Portfolio
You should ask the installation service to show you their portfolio so you can decide if their installation is worth your money. Their previous jobs should be the best. You can also ask them to give you a list of clients they have done similar jobs with, preferably the ones that have the same size of lawn as yours. This will give you a good idea of the outcome.
Handling artificial grass may seem easy but when done poorly it ends up looking messy. This is why it is best to get an installation service that has been doing the work for years and on different landscapes. This will ensure that they know how to handle any hurdles that may come up along the way. They will also be able to place edges correctly.
The best way to tell want you really want is to get samples. Remember there are several types of artificial grass so you will need to choose that which is suitable for your property. You can even get samples of the same type of grass from different companies to see which sample you prefer and help you to choose the best installation service. It is advisable to choose the grass that has the most natural look and feel.
Know The Full Charges
It is important to ask what is included in the prices for the installation before it is done. Ask them what they charge and how they determine the price to charge the customers. Some may offer free delivery services while others may charge for it. It is much better to know beforehand that be invoiced once the job is done then find out that the cost is higher than what you initially expected.
Ask About Guarantees
It is advisable to choose an installation service that offers guarantees to the clients. This will mean that you will not have to worry about uneven edges or damage to the grass. Some services offer up to two years’ guarantee. This will reduce your costs of repairs after the installation is done.
Check The Infills
This refers to whatever will be placed on the ground before the grass is installed. It could be sand or rubber. Most services advise rubber on account of the sand becoming a mess once it rains. Remember that this is artificial grass so it cannot absorb rainwater like natural grass. That means that there is a high chance that the sand infill will get damaged if there is a heavy downpour.
Ensure A Good Pile Height
You should look for grass that is about 30 to 35mm above ground. This size will ensure that the lawn looks natural. Heights above that will be too heavy. Heavy grass has the risk of looking fake from afar which is what you want to avoid.
Choose The Right Color
What most people wishing to install artificial grass are not aware of is that not all the shades are the same green. You should choose a colour that will not be automatically noticeable as artificial. You can have the installation service come and look at the surrounding lawns so that they see which colour is best for your lawn.
