It is estimated that, if properly maintained, it will be between 10 and 15 years. However, this question can never be answered if we do not take into account some factors that will determine its lifetime.
Factors affecting the life of artificial turf
- We must take into account the area and the climate where it is going to be installed.
- The quality that the grass must have: the thicker and with more microns, its durability will be better and for much longer.
- The finish that the grass must have: it is important as it can break or fall off quickly.
- The maintenance: although it saves time, it should be done when indicated, so that the life of the artificial grass will be longer and will remain in good condition.
Life of artificial grass for domestic use
Artificial grass lasts approximately 15 to 20 years, depending on the use and always taking into account the quality of it.
Also, the maintenance that is carried out is important. In fact, the idea is that the appearance of the lawn should look completely green and freshly mowed.
Duration of sports turf
Artificial grass for sports use has a lifespan of approximately 10 years, as the intensity of wear and tear will normally be greater than that of domestic turf.
Unlike domestic turf, artificial turf for sport requires special maintenance to prolong its life, and this requires machinery and qualified personnel.
