Why is synthetic grass an asset for selling your home ?

When you want to renovate your home with a view to selling it, you often think of renovating the interiors.

Beautiful, green, clean and maintenance-free exteriors will undoubtedly make many buyers want to purchase your property. Buyers will be able to imagine themselves in a beautiful, well-maintained home, with an impeccable garden all year round. Artificial turf is child- and pet-friendly, and really easy to maintain.

How can you calculate the cost of your artificial grass as part of your home renovation budget ?

Calculating your artificial grass budget as part of your renovation budget is simple. All you need to do is take into account the total surface area of your project (garden, balcony, terrace, etc.), make a freehand plan of any cuts and calculate the number of m2 required to complete your project.

Then, depending on your surface area, you'll need to choose your false grass and the right accessories to go with it. You'll find all our accessories to suit your floor here. And don't forget, our teams are always on hand to answer any questions you may have ! 

Renovating a house often requires a sizeable budget, but at Exelgreen we offer a wide range of synthetic grass at all prices ! What's more, investing in false grass before selling your home will enable you to recoup your investment, as it will increase the value of your home. It's also likely to sell more easily, so think about it !

Whether you own or rent, renovating your property with artificial grass is a good idea.

Renovating exteriors with artificial grass isn't just an option when reselling a house. Many second-home owners also call on us. Imagine how much time you'll save if your home is rented out seasonally ! You won't have to worry about having to go out and mow the lawn before the holidaymakers arrive, and the artificial grass will stay perfectly manicured whatever the weather. You can even invest in an electric brush for easy maintenance, just once or twice a year in the off-peak season, and that's it !

Your tenants' children will be able to enjoy the false grass in complete peace of mind, and your holidaymakers will be able to relax without risk. Artificial grass requires no watering, fertilizers or pesticides, can be used straight away once installed, and can be laid by yourself, so why should you hesitate ?

How do you choose the artificial grass which will add value to your property ?

When it comes to choose the artificial grass that will add value to your property, you have several choices. For a town house, and to combine comfort, softness, shape memory and durability, we recommend strand heights between 30 and 40 mm. These heights require little maintenance and are the ones our customers prefer.          

For a country house, if your lawn is installed purely for ornamental purposes, blade heights between 40 and 50 mm will be ideal for an incredibly dense, full garden. The taller your artificial grass, the more voluminous it will look. It will also be extremely comfortable, but will require just one extra brushing a year. These lawns are particularly appreciated for their density.

Finally, if your home is a vacation rental with a high frequency of trampling, heights between 25 and 30 mm will be perfectly suited. Indeed, if you're not on site and your home is likely to receive many holidaymakers, a shorter blade will be more resilient than a longer one. Don't hesitate to leave a stiff broom or vacuum cleaner at your disposal, so that your guests can easily clean it.

Next, you'll need to choose the color : do you prefer a lighter or darker artificial grass ? How realistic do you want it to be ? Which UV guarantee is best suited to your project ?
