BBQ on Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is made from high-quality synthetic material. This material is fire resistant and will not catch fire. But precautions must be taken to ensure everything goes smoothly. We always recommend you never expose your synthetic grass to a naked flame. 

Exposing or placing any material, for example, grills, patio heaters, barbeque, etc, on your fake grass can result in the melting of turf. Sometimes fake grass can melt in severe temperatures but it is less likely to happen. 

If you have sand-filled artificial grass installed, then you don’t need to worry because sand acts as a fire extinguisher and will help to prevent any kind of damage to your fake lawn.

Position of Barbeque on Artificial Grass 

Placing your barbeque grill at a certain level is always recommended. You should be careful about the area under the barbeque grill and the area around it. 

Using an elevated barbeque grill will help to transfer the heat coming out of the grill. In case, if the grill is set up on the grass, the heat coming out of the grill will more likely to burn the grass underneath and can cause a disaster at once. So the position of your barbeque grill is very important.
