Quality of Installation
Artificial grass is supplied on a roll and can be stored for some time before installing. Due to this, it is not always possible to get a perfect looking lawn straight away. The product is not deemed to be faulty if creases are present or the pile is flat initially. These will come out over a period of time once installed as the product acclimatises.
Artificial grass is manufactured in batches which means very slight variations of the same product can occur between different batches. ‘Artificial grass for less’ will not accept liability for minor variations in product. We will always ensure that when multiple rolls are being installed, they are from the same batch.
‘Artificial Grass for Less’ will always strive to make all joins invisible. However, on rare occasions, due to the molecular structure of the product joins can be visible. This is unfortunately inevitable on occasions especially during the period straight after completion. Often, visible joins can become invisible once the artificial grass has had time to bed in and the fibres knit together.
