With bonfire night just around the corner, you may wonder if you can enjoy it now that you have artificial grass. You’ll need to be careful with fire, rockets, sparklers, and anything else Pyro. This doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to have a great bonfire night party in your new garden.

Let’s have a look at some of the ways you can go about enjoying bonfire night with an artificial lawn. Don’t worry, we know how to throw a good party at CAG, so follow this guide and you will have the bonfire night of dreams without needing a new lawn afterwards!

What to be cautious of


There are many things on a night heavily linked with fire. We shouldn’t have to tell you that fire and plastic won’t end well. Nevertheless, you can still have a great night!


The best thing to do for a big fire would be to go to an organised event. This is the safest way not only for the grass but for your friends and family too. Having fire too close to artificial grass could be catastrophic to your bank account.

Furthermore, if you have to have a fire. Keep it well away from your synthetic turf. In our opinion at least a few meters is ideal. A large gust of wind or an intoxicated guest could end your beautiful artificial lawn.

Sparklers are fun and don’t tend to be an issue for artificial turf, but a dropped sparkler could result in a ruined lawn. No one should be on the grass with a sparkler, even if they are competent, they could still drop it, which would result in a huge cost to you.

Similar to fires, sparklers let off sparks and embers too. You don’t want these landing on your grass, as this leaves the potential for a burn mark on your lawn.


As I’m sure you know, fireworks come with a lot of danger. If it’s a rocket, the trail of fire to propel it up would not sit well on your artificial grass. In addition, The free-standing shot fireworks that can be placed anywhere, get hot, so placing these on your grass will melt your turf.

To conclude, you must be more cautious and on the ball than usual. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time. You will be fine if you keep fire away from your artificial grass. You can still enjoy a great bonfire night, but you may need to re-plan how you go about it.
