Artificial Grass and Fireworks: Dos and Don’ts

Post date: October 13, 2023

Artificial grass has gained immense popularity over the years due to its low maintenance, eco-friendly nature, and lush appearance. However, when the festive season rolls around and fireworks light up the night sky, artificial grass owners should be aware of some important dos and don’ts to ensure that their beautiful synthetic lawns remain unharmed. In this blog, we will explore the potential risks of fireworks on artificial grass and provide some alternative ways to enjoy the festivities safely.

1.   Don’t Light Fireworks on Artificial Grass

One of the most crucial don’ts when it comes to artificial grass and fireworks, is to never light fireworks directly on your synthetic lawn. Fireworks can reach scorching temperatures, which can melt or damage the artificial grass fibres leading to discolouration and permanent marks. This can ruin the aesthetic and durability of your lawn.

2.   Don’t Use Sparklers on Artificial Grass

Another important don’t is using sparklers on artificial grass. Sparklers may seem harmless, but they can still pose a fire hazard. The hot sparks that fall to the ground can ignite the artificial grass, causing damage and potentially creating a safety risk. Instead, enjoy sparklers on a non-flammable surface like concrete or a metal tray.

3.   Don’t Light Bonfires on Fake Grass

Just as you should avoid fireworks, lighting bonfires directly on artificial grass is a big no-no. The intense heat generated by a bonfire can lead to melting or damaging your synthetic lawn, creating costly repairs. Instead, choose a designated fire pit or other fireproof area for your bonfire night celebrations.

What Can You Do with an Artificial Lawn on Bonfire Night?

Now that we’ve covered what not to do with artificial grass and fireworks, let’s explore some safe and enjoyable alternatives:

  1. Fireworks on Concrete: If you want to enjoy fireworks at home, consider using a concrete or paved area. This will prevent any damage to your artificial grass and ensure a safe environment for your celebration.
  2. Watch a Display from Your Artificial Grass: While you should avoid setting off fireworks on your artificial grass, you can still gather on your lawn to watch a professional firework display. Lay down blankets or mats to protect your artificial grass from any debris, and enjoy the show from the comfort of your home.
  3. Projections and Simulations: Create a festive atmosphere by projecting firework simulations on a wall or a screen in your outdoor area. This can provide a safe and visually stunning alternative to actual fireworks.
  4. Visit a Public Display: Consider attending a local public firework display. This allows you to enjoy the festivities without worrying about any potential damage to your artificial grass. It’s a fun and safe way to celebrate with your community.

In conclusion, while artificial grass is a fantastic addition to your outdoor space, it’s important to be cautious when it comes to fireworks. Avoid lighting fireworks, using sparklers, or having bonfires directly on your synthetic lawn to prevent damage and safety hazards. Instead, opt for safe alternatives like using concrete, watching professional displays, or enjoying firework projections. Remember, Artificial Grass of Derbyshire can supply both domestic and commercial properties with high-grade artificial lawns, ensuring you have a beautiful and durable outdoor space for many festive seasons to come. Stay safe and enjoy your celebrations responsibly!

These images were kindly supplied by a customer of ours who we supplied with 100 sqm of Prestige 37mm artificial grass. The majority of our projects are fully installed by Artificial Grass Derbyshire but in this case the customer was very confident in their own abilities and have indeed laid a very lovely new artificial lawn.

These guys have done a fantastic job of our artificial lawn. We did consider doing it ourselves as it’s a small area but so glad we went with them. They were very reasonably priced and the finish is to the highest of standards. They even looked at the overall finish of the garden project and put more of the gravel core down to higher the lawn so the overall finished effect is perfect. Not even worth attempting the job ourselves.We went with the willow lawn and it’s very soft and natural looking. Would highly recommend the business and lawn.

Paul Emery - artificial willow lawn looks brilliant. Fitting of lawn was professional and meticulous. Delivery was received at the time advised and fitting completed within time advised. Maintenance advice for the lawn from Chris was most helpful. A positive experience from initial quote to the end result of a perfect looking lawn. Would definitely use Artificial Grass Derbyshire again.
