One of the most frequent questions we get asked at Perfectly Green is ‘how long does the grass last for?’. We supply artificial grass in a number of different locations and facilities including sports centres, nurseries and kennels, where durability is extremely important.

Artificial grass from Perfectly Green is durable and if maintained in accordance with instructions will last for up to 15-20 years, so you can enjoy the benefits for years to come. The whole range of Perfectly Green artificial grass is guaranteed to be UV stable for 8-10 years. To keep your fake lawn looking in tip top condition you do need to look after it, although the maintenance needs of plastic grass are minimal.

Here are a few tips that you can use to make sure your artificial grass lasts as long as possible:

    • Clean up any spills – try to remove any mess when it is a fresh spill, rather than when it has had time to harden.
    • Remove pollutants – some chemicals can damage the artificial grass, so remove any potentially harmful chemicals away as soon as you notice them.
    • Keep it clean – though artificial grass requires relatively little maintenance, regular use of a leaf blower, power brush or garden vac is strongly recommended. 
    • Be careful with sharp objects – though Perfectly Green artificial grass is highly resilient, care should be taken with sharp object which may damage the grass.


Ultimately, the length of time that your long-life synthetic turf will last depends on how you use it. High traffic areas or spaces that are used for sports will look worn more quickly, whereas a garden lawn with low level usage will last much longer. This isn’t to say that artificial grass represents less of a positive investment for areas of high traffic. Artificial grass is much more hardwearing than natural grass, and will remain in great condition for a long time after conventional turf would appear worn or damaged. Additionally, the individual blades are sewn onto the permeable latex backing so you won’t get bald or muddy patches that can appear on a real lawn.
