Why spread sand on artificial grass?Decorative artificial grass has long blades ranging in height from 25mm to 30mm. Such blades of grass need support in order to stand up straight. In products without a thatch (synthetic moss or rootzone), this is achieved with the help of a layer of sand approx. 2cm deep.
Benefit of Utilising Artificial Grass
Using sand fill has a number of benefits. These benefits apply to all types of artificial grass, The artificial Grass Company has to offer..
One of the sand’s primary functions is to weigh down the artificial grass therefore we recommend using 10kg per sqm as a minimum, this adds both body and strength to the artificial grass. The extra weight means that the grass stays in place in the centre. The sand provides stability and protects the artificial grass. As a result, no wrinkles or folds develop through use.
The sand also surrounds the long blades of artificial grass and ensures that they remain erect. An additional benefit of filling with sand is that it helps make the grass more fire resistant, for example in case the barbecue is knocked over onto the grass.
