Why Choose Smiling Rock’s Artificial Grass?
Artificial turf is a surface of synthetic fibres made to emulate the look & feel of natural grass. Over the years, the adoption of artificial grass has drastically increased due to a variety of reasons. Ranging from its effectiveness in cost to its environmental benefits, below are the top reasons for switching to artificial turf:
✔ Aesthetic appeal
With a range of approximately 8 types of artificial lawn, we at Smiling Rock aspire to provide our customers with synthetic turf so real, it is difficult to tell the difference when compared with REAL lawn.
✔ Environmentally friendly, safe for children & pets
Aside from attaining an aesthetic look, we focus heavily on product quality. Unlike natural lawn that may require fertilisers and weed killing chemicals, which contributes to pollutants in the ecosystem, we offer our customers certified proof concerning our lead and chemical free artificial grass. Thus making Smiling Rock’s artificial turf safe for pets, children and the environment. With proper care, our artificial grass has a service life of up to 25 years. Families with kids and dogs can now run around and play on the lawn any time of the day without having to worry about muddy feet or paws!
✔ Cool technology & UV protection
Our artificial lawn has a variety of applications ranging from residential landscape gardens, playgrounds, road verges, to schools and pet areas etc. Furthermore, all of Smiling Rock’s synthetic turf are non-fading with a 7-year UV protection. Each grass type possesses both straight and curly yarns that prevent it from getting hotter in summer, while the brown ‘bits’ contributes to its realism. Among the biggest concerns for artificial turf is the heat during summer because it is made out of plastic. That’s why Smiling Rock’s turf come with SMART COOL TECHNOLOGY, that allows the turf to naturally cool itself by evaporating heat. For extra caution, you can lightly hose down your artificial lawn prior to stepping out.
✔ Water conservation & cost effectiveness
Natural grass requires constant watering, which can be very expensive and time consuming. Did you know that just 1 square metre of real lawn takes an average of 1,500L of watering a year? That’s 45,000L of water EVERY year just for a standard home (approx. 30sqm lawn)! Say good-bye to forking out large sums of money for water bills, lawn mowers, fertilizers and/or cost to hire a gardener to look after your lawn for you. With Smiling Rock’s artificial Lawn installed, you can save on water bills and invest in time for you and your family.
