Why should you decorate your pool with artificial grass ?

Aesthetics, comfort, very low maintenance... False grass offers many advantages. Firstly, decorating your pool with synthetic grass is easy : most of our customers choose to install it themselves. All you need to do is choose the right accessories for your hard or soft ground. To cover your pool with grass on soft ground, you'll need a geotextile and fastening clips. On hard ground, the geotextile won't be needed, and you can use fixing patches, double-sided tape or resin to secure it in place. Secondly, once laid, you can use your synthetic grass straight away ! You won't have to wait for the grass to grow to enjoy it. Finally, if your pool is at your vacation destination and you'd like to be able to remove your artificial grass in winter, that's perfectly possible.

Chlorine can sometimes damage natural lawns, and trampling can be problematic. This problem will no longer arise with an artificial grass, freeing you from the chores of gardening. It will suffice to straighten the strands of your grass around your pool more or less regularly depending on the range chosen.
