    Is Exelgreen artificial grass cut to size ?

    Good news : at Exelgreen, you can choose the dimensions of your roll of artificial grass almost to measure. Most of our cut-to-size models are available in fixed widths : 1m, 2m, 3m and 4m. Lengths can be cut to the nearest ten cm, up to 30m ! 

    For smaller projects, we regularly stock pre-cut rolls in fixed widths and lengths, such as 1m x 3m or 2m x 3m.

    How do I draw up a layout plan ?

    To order the right dimensions for your artificial grass, we recommend that you draw up a layout plan. A layout plan will enable you to anticipate all the cut-outs required for your project, the aim being to optimize them according to the direction of installation and to save as much off-cuts as possible.

    But how do you do it ? To get it right, you need to take your entire project into account, including offcuts and cut-outs. At Exelgreen, we recommend avoiding joins and using wider rolls for a more natural result. A small safety margin is also a good practice to ensure total coverage of the surface.

    Don't forget to take into account the direction in which your artificial grass is laid ! Whatever the project, all rolls must be laid in the same direction for a natural, even result.

    Why are roll widths fixed ?

    The widths of our artificial grass rolls are fixed because they depend on the cutting machines used in our factory in Belgium.

    Cut and packaged with care, you'll receive your order within 10 working days, directly to your doorstep. Appointments are made by telephone once the delivery driver has your order in his possession.  You choose the date on which you and the driver will be present.

    How long can I keep my custom-made artificial grass ?

    Made-to-measure artificial grass is a durable covering that can be kept for around fifteen years.  Our artificial grass is guaranteed against UV for 6, 8 or 10 years, depending on the model chosen. This guarantee ensures the longevity and quality of your false grass. 

    What's more, it's easy to maintain your custom-made artificial grass or pre-cut rolls. Simply brush it in the opposite direction to the blades to restore its full volume.

    In the event of a minor accident, clean the area with a little soap and water, rinse, brush and you're done. 

    Investing in artificial grass saves you precious time and energy, and ensures that your lawn looks great all year round !
