What is artificial grass?
Artificial grass is a surface of synthetic fibres, constructed to look like natural grass. It is most often used in sports arenas / pitches that are normally played on normal grass but in recent times more and more people have started using artificial grass for gardens, patios, terraces and even golf putting greens, due to its low maintenance and ability to withstand heavy use without the need for periodic cutting.
How much does artificial grass cost?
Here at PermaLawn we offer a wide range of artificial grass solutions and so our prices vary depending on the type of grass you chose to have. Currently our prices range from £8.95 per m2 up to £21.91 per m2.
How much artificial grass can I buy?
Here at PermaLawn we haven't set a limit on the amount of artificial grass you can buy, but please bear in mind our rolls finish at 22.5m in length and 4m in width. We can supply cuts up to these sizes but there is nothing stopping you purchasing multiple rolls, so if you need 5, 5 is how many we'll supply!

Why should I chose artificial grass over keeping my natural lawn?
This is a question that the PermaLawn team are often asked and it is a very valid question. Our artificial grass solutions are very high quality and come complete with a 7 year warranty (most natural lawns only have 1 year). On top of this our artificial lawns are very low maintenance and look great, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
How do I find the area of my project?
This is very simple, simply times the length of your project by its width. So if your garden is 10m long and 10m wide you'll need to order 100 m2 of artificial grass. If your garden is an awkward shape or if you wish to have non-square you will need to take the widest measurements. You will then be able to request your installer to cut the artificial grass to the exact size/shape you require.
What is 'pile height'?
The pile height is length of the yarns used in your new artificial grass. Depending on the use and style of your artificial grass this length will vary. Here at PermaLawn our pile heights varying from 13mm for our St Andrews all the way to our 45mm Kensington.
What yarn styles do you have?

How long with my artificial grass last before it needs to be replaced?
This is another question the PermaLawn team are often asked and it is again a very good, if not expansive, question.
It is hard to put an exact time scale on how long your new artificial grass will last. We guarantee your new lawn for 7 years but it should last well beyond this but how much depends on a variety of conditions including usage and weather.
