Frequently Asked Questions
Is Hi-Tech Turf damaging to the environment?
No not at all as it requires no water, no pesticides, no fertilisers or the use of energy or fuel to maintain it. With the way the climate is changing having the perfect lawn without the use of water is a great benefit. Also with the fibres still being so lush and dense insects can still happily live in between them without coming into contact with mower blades.
Does Hi-Tech Turf require any maintenance?
For the products that require an in-fill to hold up the fibres a light brushing is required from time to time to stop the in-fill from settling. The products with no in-fill will require minimal maintenance to remove leaves or debris to prevent any kind of moss build up. Moss can also be prevented with a treatment once or twice a year. A light, regular brush will also prevent any weed seed settling on top of the surface.
Can weeds penetrate the grass?
All our installations begin with a thick weed control membrane, this layer acts as a barrier to prevent weeds growing up through the surface. Over hanging trees or birds can sometimes lead to weed seed being dropped on the surface. If this happens the weeds can be easily pulled up before they have time to root and a weed control spray applied to the area. Regular maintenance with a stiff brush will also prevent this from occurring
Is Hi-Tech Turf suitable for poorly drained areas?
Yes the grass has a holed latex backing which we would lay over a stone hard core base allowing the base to be firm and the water to drain away.
