2.5 Every reasonable care has been taken to ensure that the descriptions are accurate, however specifications may change. The limitations of colour reproduction and the individual colour settings of your screen may cause colour variation.
2.6 Sizes / Cut Lengths. We reserve the right to over supply each cut length but up to 1m. However we will follow the guidance of BS 3655 (roll materials tolerance of +/- 0.25%) with regard to shortage claims.
2.7 Creases – Due to the molecular structure of the material artificial grass does crease when rolled. Creases will fall out within three months of the installation or supply. The grass is not classed as faulty if delivered or installed with creases. The grass will de-crease quite noticeably on a daily basis, especially in warmer weather conditions.
2.8 Seams – Seams are occasionally visible due to the molecular structure of the material. This is unfortunately inevitable and can be influenced by a number of factors. The manufacturers’ warranty does not cover seam visibility.
2.9 Product Guarantee – All grasses we supply have a manufacturer’s guarantee. The grass is designed to match the effects of real grass. Continued usage in a particular area will cause it to crush. In these instances, we recommend regular brushing.
3.0 Product Colours – Rolls from stock could have slight colour differences.
Samples from stock could have slight colour differences.
We send out ordered grass from the same batch to ensure there are no colour differentials. Please be aware if you would like to add more grass to a particular area at a later date there may be a slight colouration difference. We suggest you make the decision now and order all the grass from the same batch. Easigrass E Commerce cannot be liable for any differences in colour for the same product if ordered separately.
