Get all the answers from the experts on artificial lawn
Fake grass… synthetic grass… astroturf… no matter what you call it, choosing to install artificial lawn is a life changing decision.
At Australian Outdoor Living, we’re familiar with all the questions you might have.
To ensure you’re a little more informed when making all-important landscaping choices, we compiled our top artificial lawn FAQs and sat down to chat with our expert team to get all of your questions answered.
Where can artificial lawn be installed?
All you need is a surface with a porous base for water drainage or a cement or paved area which has been cleaned and prepped.
Here are just a few ideas you can explore further:
- You can layer synthetic grass over concrete in dozens of original ways. Read here to see how.
- You can use artificial lawn in a whole host of different, outside-the-box ways. Find more inspiration here.
Can I install artificial lawn myself?
In short – yes.
However, as you are making a permanent change to the home we recommend homeowners and investors arrange to have all work carried out professionally by trusted tradesmen.
This will ensure you get the perfect results you were hoping for.
Does It stand up to the test of rough child’s play?
Our artificial turf has an advantage over real lawn as the latex infill acts as padding.
Plus you won’t have to contend with the kids trudging muddy or sandy footprints into the house.
That said, if rough play does disturb the infill, it can be easily restored by brushing the lawn with a stiff bristle yard broom.
Is artificial lawn pet-friendly?
Our complete range of artificial lawn is built to withstand all the elements…and your furry friends.
As it looks and feels like real grass it’s soft for your pets to lay and play on.
No matter which synthetic grass you pick, our lawn is resilient and will not fade from harsh urine acid.
You can simply hose off the urine and pick up after your pets as you normally would.

How is artificial lawn maintained?
Our range of artificial lawn requires minimal maintenance which means you get back time so you can do the things you love.
To keep it looking top notch, simply rake it using a lightweight plastic fan style rake or a strong bristled broom to help remove leaves or debris in your lawn.
After that, a quick squirt with a garden hose will help keep the lawn bristles looking clean and new.
As with all of our products, our friendly consultants will provide you with proper instructions and training on how to best maintain your lawn.

Who will I be dealing with at Australian Outdoor Living?
You will mostly deal with the Australian Outdoor Living Production Manager for artificial grass.
They will be familiar with your requirements and the details of your installation and are only a call or email away should you have any questions.
The Production Manager will be in contact with you to arrange a convenient time for a check measure.
This is when our installers come out and double check measurements taken down by the original consultant to ensure everything is perfect for the day of your installation.
We will then call to set an installation date which works for you.
Our Production Manager will work around your availability as best as possible to ensure the installation process is a breeze.
