3 common myths about fake grass lawns that are simply not true

3 common myths about fake grass lawns in Dubai that are simply not true

As we’re now a part of the social networking generation, an era of smart phones, tablets, and portable devices able to connect to the internet in seconds, it seems as if everybody is now an expert on numerous subjects and they now have a means of expressing this fact via a number of different platforms. The problem is that much of this so-called “expert advice” is simply not true and is therefore counterproductive as people will read it online and take it as gospel. Even the fake grass industry has suffered as a result of misinformation and misconception and people basically saying things about the industry and the products they produce that are simply not true. In reality, fake grass is incredibly beneficial for homes, businesses, animals, people, and even the environment, yet there are still common myths associated with the industry that do seem to deter some potential clients. Here we’ll be clearing things up once and for all as we look at 3 common fake grass myths that are simply not true.


Harmful Toxins

Fake grass contains lead and other harmful toxins – Wrong! This particular myth dates way back the 1960’s, where cheap fake bright green “grass” was common in businesses all over the world, particularly the food and market trades. This fake grass felt extremely uncomfortable and was even pretty painful if the truth be told. It was instantly recognisable as cheap and fake, but more worryingly was the fact that this product did actually contain toxic lead and other harmful materials. These days however, things are very, very different compared with the 1960’s as fake grass now looks and feels just like real grass and it is now made from 100% safe and eco-friendly materials that pose no threat or danger to humans, animals, or the environment in the slightest.

Not Authentic Looking

Fake grass doesn’t look like real grass – Again, this is just not true. At first glance,fake grass looks identical to real grass and even with incredibly close inspection it will still fool some people into believing it’s the real thing. The materials, the technology, the equipment, and the expertise levels required to produce fake grass lawns have all advanced phenomenally over the last few years and truthfully artificial grass looks almost identical to real grass.

Poor For Drainage

Artificial turf drains poorly – Another myth about artificial grass that is simply not true is the fact that many believe that it drains poorly and that when it does rain, the water will just sit on the surface and turn into a giant puddle. In reality however, many fake grass companies have now developed synthetic grass that can drain water away faster and more efficiently than natural grass. It isn’t uncommon for fake lawns to drain at a rate of around 30 inches per hour. Because of this, rain water and pet urine will both drain away and as these products also contain natural odour blocking materials (that are 100% safe) bad smells are quickly  eliminated.

4 reasons why Synthetic Grass Dubai is perfect for your villa

4 reasons why synthetic grass Dubai is perfect for your villa 

Over the last few years, synthetic turf Dubai has become more and more popular in homes, businesses, hotels, and villas all over the world, particularly in notoriously hot locations where real grass struggles to grow. Dubai for example, is incredibly hot, pretty much all year long, even in the cooler winter months and because of that, grass, trees, and general greenery really tends to struggle. The answer to this problem however, is synthetic turf Dubai. Here, fake grass in Dubai has really taken off and is becoming a common sight in homes and villas all over the region. If you yourself are the proud owner of a Dubai villa, and would like something other than dull stone or wood in your gardens, synthetic turf Dubai could be exactly what you’re looking at. Here’s a look at just 4 reasons why artificial grass is perfect for your Dubai villa.

It stays green all year long – As mentioned, the temperature in Dubai is extremely hot, with clear blue skies and scorching hot sunshine very much the norm on an everyday basis. Whilst that probably sounds pretty pleasant to most of you, it can be pretty troublesome for anybody looking to grow plants and grass. Whereas the grass should ideally be a lush green colour, more often than not, natural grass in Dubai is instead a dull yellow/brown which is not very attractive to look at. Synthetic turf Dubai however, stays green all year long because it’s synthetic and it doesn’t require water and nutrients to thrive. Once it is fitted it will stay the same brilliant shade of green for years to come, making it a much more appealing option than real grass.

It’s  cost effective – If people do insist on having real grass in their gardens in Dubai, in order to do so they must first get used to the idea that their water bill is going to be sky high. Due to the scorching temperatures, grass needs to be watered every single day in Dubai, and it will need it in vast amounts. This in turn can cost a small fortune in water, and that’s before you factor in the water required for everyday living such as bathing, washing up etc. As mentioned previously, synthetic turf grass requires no nutrients, no fertilisers, and no water, and it still remains as green as ever, making it extremely cost effective.

No real maintenance required –Synthetic turf always remains the same length as it does not grow. It doesn’t break down and turn into mud underfoot. Plus it isn’t disrupted by insects, or dug up by animals that wish to use it as their own personal toilet. Basically once it’s laid you can sit back and relax and do nothing, other than maybe pick up the odd few leaves that may have fallen from neighbouring trees and bushes every few weeks

It’s incredibly lifelike – People are often put off by words such as synthetic or artificial or fake as they think the products in question will look unrealistic compared with how they’re supposed to look. Synthetic grass Dubai however, is incredibly lifelike and truthfully without having a close up look at the grass itself, you really can’t tell the difference between real grass and artificial grass.

4 Reasons Artificial Grass in Dubai Is child-friendly

Most of the time when your hear the term ‘artificial’, the first thing you think of is the use of chemicals to produce the artificial material. This is perhaps one of the reasons why a lot of parents choose to forego the use of artificial grass UAE in their apartments and villas. The thing is, not all artificial products cause harm, in fact most don’t but this is not commonly known. They are artificial in a way that even though they may not actually be real, they serve as alternative solution to the traditionally used options, the prime example of this is artificial grass.

This is the same thing with the use of artificial turf. Even though, in reality, it is fake grass it is environment-friendly, especially when it comes to safety and maintenance. If you are worried about your child’s safety, artificial grass Dubai is your best option.

Here are 4 reasons why artificial grass is kid-friendlier than the real thing:

1. No need for pesticides and fertiliser

If you are using real grass, you may have to use fertilisers in order to help your grass grow or even just to keep is alive. You may even use pesticides in order to get rid of insects which may harm your grass and bite your children. However, these fertilisers contain chemicals that are dangerous not just to the environment, but also to your kids. That is not a problem when using artificial grass Dubai.

2. Cushioned surface

With fake grass Dubai, you don’t have to worry about a dangerous slip or fall. Cushioning increases safety. This is the very reason why sports leagues also use synthetic grass on their playing fields. Natural grass in the UAE and can become extremely hard due to the sun’s ability to bake the ground. When using artificial grass you can either use a shock pad which give extra padding to the grass system or even without the shock pad the grass is thick and spongy all year around.

3. No mud

With artificial grass Dubai a silica sand infill provides stability to the grass whilst also encouraging water drainage. This means no mud. Whilst mud isn’t directly dangerous when it rains in Dubai it really rains. This creates puddles and muddy patches which are easy to slip over in. With artificial grass this isn’t a concern. You’ll also be loading the washing machine a lot less too!!

4. No grass stains

Grass stains are such a headache. They just won’t come out. On the other hand, artificial grass uses materials that which do not leave stains on your clothes. Therefore, even if your child chooses to crawl all over the easigrass artificial grass, their clothes will be spick and span.

With all the reasons presented above, it is reasonable to conclude that artificial grass Dubai isa great option when compared to natural grass.
