A high-quality UV-stabilised artificial grass product should last up to 15 years through normal use, but this will depend on the turf product and what it will be used for.
Artificial lawn products should come with a guarantee. Typically, a 10-year UV guarantee, 7-year product failure guarantee and 2-year installation guarantee.
The company completing your artificial grass project should provide you with a specification outlining product details and warranty.
Caring for and maintaining your lawn can further its life expectancy. Simply remove leaves and debris and hose down any dirt with soapy water and a stiff brush to keep it looking attractive for many years to come.
Certainly, an artificial lawn lasts years longer than a real lawn. Artificial grass is much more robust than real grass and does not fall victim to animals, weather, drought, waterlogging, worm casts, or wear and tear like real turf.
Unlike a real lawn, artificial grass does not need to be constantly re-turfed or replaced every couple of months or years, and is much more durable and longer lasting than its limited, short-term alternative.
