Debunking Myths About Artificial Grass

For all the obvious benefits of artificial grass, we often still come across some myths about this fantastic product. Whether it’s down to outdated ideas about the product or just because someone heard something from their uncle’s friend’s sister, there are always myths out there that are perpetuated, mainly via the internet.

This month at Easigrass Surrey, we wanted to cover some of the most common myths about artificial grass and debunk them for you so that you can decide on whether it’s the right move for your garden.


Myth: Artificial grass isn’t good for dogs

The origin of this myth may well be down to how artificial grass used to be made and a lack of quality in the industry at that time, but nowadays it couldn’t be further from the truth.

We all know how important the outdoors is for a dog of any size, so having robust artificial grass that is safe for dogs means they can play all day long and you’ll never need to deal with muddy paws again. Plus, with a special odour-eating infill in our Easigrass products for pets, there won’t be any lingering smells – you just clean up their poop and hose the lawn down every so often to keep it fresh.


Myth: Artificial grass doesn’t look realistic

Again, this myth might be based on outdated perceptions. Once upon a time, artificial grass may have been poor in quality, but the Easigrass range has been developed to be as realistic and natural looking as possible. And those efforts have paid off, because it’s an award-winning product, with different options to suit different gardens.

Of course, if someone were to get on their hands and knees and inspect the lawn up close, it might then be a little more obvious, but otherwise it simply looks like a well-maintained and healthy lawn.


Myth: Artificial grass doesn’t drain well

Rainwater is, of course, a big concern for a lot of people, as no one wants a flooded lawn. However, the Easigrass range is installed with special membranes and is designed to allow for proper drainage of any rain through all the different layers. Not all artificial grass is made equal, which is why it’s important to find a product that does drain well.


Myth: Artificial grass is bad for the environment

It’s easy to see why this myth still gets traction, because replacing natural turf with something man-made is always going to seem like a loss for the environment. However, when you factor in that an artificial lawn doesn’t need mowing or watering, you’re already making savings on energy, lowering your carbon footprint. 

Plus, just because you opt for artificial grass, it doesn’t mean you can’t surround it with natural flower beds, bushes and trees for the animals and insects — it’s all about finding the right balance for you. 


Myth: Artificial grass is too expensive

Thanks to the high-quality look and feel of artificial grass, people often assume that they can’t afford such luxury. However, while it may be more expensive than natural turf upfront, you get your value for money over time.

Because you don’t need a lawnmower, fertiliser or water, you only pay the initial price for artificial grass. For natural turf, you’re paying for it over the years and there is no guarantee it will stay looking as fresh as when it was first laid if you begin to neglect those aspects.


Myth: Artificial grass gets too hot

For Easigrass products, this is a myth because of the triple yarn used, but for low-quality artificial grass, it may be a harsh truth. This is because some artificial grass is made without the consideration for how it will feel underfoot and it’s part of the process less reputable manufacturers skip to cut costs. 

We don’t get an abundance of direct, constant sunlight here in the UK, but even for those few days or weeks in summer where it is hot, you’ll still be able to comfortably walk on an Easigrass lawn. We do recommend hosing your artificial lawn a little in extreme heat if you want to make sure it remains cool enough for children and pets.


Myth: Artificial grass isn’t safe for children

We’re not quite sure where this myth comes from, but once again it may be down to outdated notions of what artificial grass is made from and how it’s installed. The fact that Easigrass artificial grass products are used for school playgrounds and sports fields should be enough to dispel this myth, but let us break it down for you.

Thanks to the soft design of the grass and the ability to combine it with a soft underlayer for added protection, Easigrass products are ideal for children of all ages. The added bonus is that kids can play on the grass without ever getting muddy, so you don’t have to worry when it’s time to play.


Here at Easigrass Surrey, we supply a wide range of artificial grass products to suit your needs. Whether you need something suitable for pets, for children or for sports, there’s never been a better time to switch to the fuss and maintenance-free lifestyle that artificial grass provides.

  • A wonderful company who supply high quality grass. I bought ‘Belgravia’. It is an absolute delight. In fact ... I’ve purchased from them twice now. I wouldn’t look anywhere else. Joe is particularly helpful and made the entire process stress free. He gives sincere advice, is very attentive and helpful.

Lucy was amazing from start to finish and kept us updated, even when we were away on holiday! Our garden is totally transformed and our dog loves the pet grass too. Highly recommended!

  • The Easigrass team installed our grass in the back garden and it looks fantastic. We were given a free no obli ... gation quote but once compared with other companies the quality of the product won hands down. No pestering phone calls no pressure to take the quote. Once agreed date booked, they arrived promptly with a phone call to let us know they were on the way.Work began without any fuss, estimated time was 2 days, yet everything completed to perfection in one visit. All areas hosed down and clean before leaving. I definitely recommend Easigrass quality product and quality service. Thank you Easigrass, shared photos with neighbours who came to visit and we're sure they will be in touch soon 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻10 out of 10

  • Will and the team installed the Easigrass in the back garden and we can't fault any aspect. from initial enqui ... ry to installation they were superb to deal with and professional throughout. Very friendly team, arrived and finished on time and even took the time to hose down the patio on completion. I would not hesitate to recommend them - the finished job is exactly what we had hoped for.

  • I contacted Easigrass Birmingham as I had just had both my front and back lawns done by another company who cl ... early had no idea about how to lay artificial turf. I Spoke with Sanj who came out the next day, to assess the mess the other company had left. Within a week he managed to get me booked in, and I am now looking out at the perfect lawn, I can't believe how good it looks. His 3 lads have done such a good job, all mess cleared away. I would definately recommend Easigrass Birmingham. Its a YES from me

  • Abdul and Osama from the Fulham, London SW6 area came to clean and restore our Easigrass laid eight years ago ... on a three -storey roof terrace. They did a fabulous job, were really careful taking their equipment through the house, and have made the Easigrass look like new. I would thoroughly recommend the company and all their team - in particular the lovely brothers.

  • Fantastic service from start to finish! Quote was not the cheapest but competitive. Delivery and collection of ... supplies and waste was swift. Niti and team turned up on time along with all the supplies and equipment. They took care to protect my newly fitted kitchen and floors before starting on the garden. Installation was very professionally carried out and to a very high standard. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thanks so much Easigrass!

  • Called Easigrass 5pm Monday for grass for an exhibition stand. I had no clue what grass we wanted just needed ... it to look good. I spoke to the owner (I believe) who was extremely helpful, sorted me a quote recommended the grass and collected 9am next day, the guys even helped loading the grass. I spoke to 2 other artificial grass companies closer to our office none offered the advice and professionalism Easigrass did. Will definitely be back. Great Service.

  • Easigrass are exceptional in every aspect; as they removed an old, poorly laid artificial lawn (not by Easigra ... ss!), the sub-par foundation, and by replacing with a dog-friendly product it has rejuvenated our garden. The fitting team are passionate, very hard working and proud to called Easigrass employees. No faults at all with this company.

  • I was always sceptical about having artificial grass, but decided to go for it as tired of fighting with maint ... aining a real lawn all year round, and having mud in and out of the house. I'm so glad I did, as it looks fantastic and is of great quality. I went for the Belgravia which was in my eyes, the most realistic looking with 3 shades of colour. It feels great too. The whole experience was seemless, from the initial contact through WhatsApp (thanks Mason), getting the quote (thanks Abid) to the actual installation. The guys that turned up were absolutely brilliant - worked solidly pretty much non stop, were extremely efficient and tidied up everything as they went along, right to the end. Thank you guys - fantastic job! I highly recommend using Easigrass for a perfect looking lawn. Thank you.
