Q. Will my lawn catch fire?
So all the Artificial Grass ranges installed by Consumer Grass are made from a high-quality synthetic material that is fire retardant – that said you should never expose your artificial grass to a naked flame; we have technical information documents which we will be happy to share with you. However like most products made from synthetic material although the grass will not burn, it will melt when exposed to high temperatures.
Some sand-filled artificial grass can be rated as fireproof thanks to the sand acting as an extinguisher. We do strongly recommend that you avoid placing hot, flaming objects directly onto your lawn to prevent damage.
Q. Can i put my BBQ on the Artificial Grass?
It is highly recommended that all Barbecues, Pizza Ovens and fire pits are situated on a level hard standing base, such as paving slabs or a patio – this is help reduce the risk of damage to your artificial grass, but also makes it easier to ensure the safety of small children. It is common that your grass will get covered in crumbs and spillages, thankful your artificial grass is easy to clean (link to earlier article on cleaning your artificial grass).
Q. Can my artificial grass be repaired if it gets burned or melted?
To be honest – not really, there are not many cost-effective ways to repair your artificial grass, you may need to replace the damaged area with new grass. We will always try to identify potential risks when we install to minimise chances of this happening.
