DO YOU USE GRANITE DUST OR SHARP SAND FOR ARTIFICIAL GRASS?
For Quality purposes we only use granite dust.
Artificial grass has perforations in the latex backing that allow water to drain through the artificial grass.
Up to 60 litres of water per square metre, per minute, can drain through artificial grass.
With this much water capable of coming through your artificial grass, what happens over time is that the sharp sand will wash away.
Bad news for your artificial grass, as the turf will become uneven and you will see noticeable ridges and dips in your lawn.
The second reason is that sharp sand moves around underfoot.
If your lawn will be receiving a high level of footfall, including from pets, then this will again result in dips and ruts in your turf where sharp sand has been used.
A further problem with sharp sand is that it encourages ants.
Ants will, over time, begin excavating through sharp sand and potentially building nests. This disruption to the laying course will likely cause an uneven artificial lawn.
Many people wrongly assume that the sharp sand will hold firm in the same way it does for block paving, but this is not the case.
IS ARTIFICIAL GRASS CHILD AND PET FRIENDLY?
