  • Curling blades or crushing blades, this is a natural occurrence due to traffic and natural wear and tear
  • Failure to protect, repair and maintain the product.
  • Artificial Super Grass product range is pet friendly however we cannot offer warranty from Damage due to pets, e.g. Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs.
  • Burns, Cuts, Accidents, Vandalism, Abuse, Negligence or Neglect.
  • Barbeques, Cigarettes or any Flame/Fire.

  • Force Majeure or any other conditions beyond the reasonable control of Artificial Super Grass.

All Artificial Super Grass products are subject to normal wear and tear. In addition to the above mentioned factors, wear and tear depends upon, without any limitations. Artificial Super Grass does not offer warranty against normal wear and tear. Rotary washing lines can be fitted but it is recommended to install the ground spike into a specially formed concrete pad prior to grass installation, this way weed membrane will not be compromised. Artificial Super Grass will not be held responsible if the customer fits their own rotary washing line after installation has taken place, ground may move if the sub base is disturbed after installation, please discuss this option prior to installation taking place. The final decision whether any product is to be replaced will lie with our supplier, this decision will not lie in the hands of Artificial Super Grass. ASG will endeavour to provide a flat base; this will not necessarily mean “to be level”. Nearly every artificial lawn laid will have some kind of gradient which is natural, should the customer request a level finish this will alter the overall costs involved. A level surface should be requested prior to any quotation received and accounted for having a gradient in lawns is on occasions a much needed feature due to drainage. A flat gradient is totally different to a level gradient; flat gradients suit 95% of lawns laid by Artificial Super Grass. “Level” gradients require removal of more existing soil, therefore the cost of the overall installation process will increase, this will be made aware to the customer upon the initial quotation. 

Maintenance

All Artificial Super Grass products are designed to be extremely low maintenance but no items we sell are “maintenance free” products. 

ü Use a water based detergent for cleaning your new lawn, a knap sack or pressure bottle sprayer is recommended. This spray method is also recommended for pet spills, sick, urine or faeces remains after picking up the bulk of the mess.

ü Brush the grass regularly with a stiff brush; this will keep the grass looking great all year round.

ü Weeds will not occur through your weed barrier but birds may drop seeds in to the grass pile resulting in weeds sprouting, pull the weed immediately to avoid seed dispersal.

ü Remove any leaves or debris immediately by hand to avoid any soil penetrating the pile or moss forming on the surface. A leaf blower can also be used.


Force Majeure 

Artificial Super Grass shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results in events or circumstances outside of its reasonable control or if the seller is being prevented, hindered, delayed, cancelled, or rendered uneconomic by reason of circumstance or events beyond Artificial Super Grass control (force majeure) including but not limited to acts of god, force majeure, strikes, trades disputes or other industrial action, lock outs, war, riots, accidents, civil commotion, government orders, direction or legislation by fire, adverse weather conditions, breakdown of plant machinery or shortage of raw materials from a natural source of supply, difficulty in increased expense in obtaining workman labour, Artificial Super Grass will therefore be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations. 

Colour

Artificial Super Grass supply grasses which come from the same batch upon manufacture, although all grasses with the same, name, colour, batch number and manufacture date should be the same, ASG need to make customers aware that if they are requiring a colour to match a certain old batch and new batch there may be a slight colour difference. It is the customer’s responsibility to order all lawns which will be near one another at the same time and Artificial Super Grass accept no responsibility and will not be held liable for slight colour differences. Colours and shades may also vary from which are advertised on the website due to limitations of browser software and colour resolution monitors. 

Seams

Artificial Super Grass takes pride to make all seams invisible. Sometimes however seams are visible due to the manufacturing process of the product. This sometimes is beyond our control and can be influenced by many factors. Our warranty does not cover seam visibility and ASG will not be held liable for any visible seams upon installation or after installation has taken place. If you feel seams could be a major issue with how you feel, our advice is to purchase artificial grass with a taller, thicker pile. This however will not cure a seam problem 100%, as stated previous Artificial Super Grass take great pride when artificial grass seams are not visible, rest assured, here at ASG we will do everything in our fitting skills power for the seam to be invisible. 

Creases

When artificial grass is manufactured it is rolled and stored immediately, by the time the artificial grass is eventually delivered to a customer this grass maybe month old. In this timescale creases may appear and are completely natural, this is not a fault in the grass. It is advised by Artificial Super Grass that upon installation if possible un-roll the grass for a few hours out to let any creases naturally falls out. If creases still appear after the grass has been laid, do not worry, these creases will de-crease naturally over time when the grass is being used, sometimes this could take up to 3 months. Should creases still appear after 3 months, Artificial Super Grass will work with the customer and our supplier to ascertain if a fault exists that warrants a replacement of the affected area, the final decision as to whether the grass should be replaced or not will lie with our supplier. A replacement product will only be made if the fault affects the usability and performance of the artificial grass.

Utility Services and Access

These services should be supplied to ASG free of charge throughout the complete installation process. It is also the customer’s responsibility to make sure suitable vehicle access to and from the installation site. Wheelbarrow access is also a must.
