Artificial grass has rapidly grown in popularity in recent years as a low-maintenance alternative to natural lawns and with increasingly convincing fake grass carpets to choose from, it is practically indistinguishable from the real thing.
There are many benefits to using artificial grass, particularly for small lawns where regular mowing might be impractical, or even for roof terraces where it might not be possible to gain access with a lawnmower at all.
In any location, fake grass is an affordable alternative to seeding, feeding and weeding a natural lawn and provides a clean, consistent look and feel for your outside space.
Fake grass carpets come in a variety of different weights, allowing you to save on budget or to invest in a more luxurious, cushioned and natural-feeling lawn. The weight typically comes from the lower layers of the fabric, which are woven together to anchor the blades of grass into place, but also to give a cushioned, soil-like feeling underfoot.
Synthetic grass is porous and easy to keep free from standing water, by installing suitable underlay and supporting layers to quickly funnel water away into the ground. Similarly, when laid on hard surfaces, thicker fake lawns can not only provide physical cushioning underfoot, but also help to avoid puddles forming as quickly during a light shower.
Our selection of artificial grass weights take their names from the UK’s major grass court tennis championships, including Queens, Eastbourne and, of course, Wimbledon. They are suitable for use in both commercial and domestic premises – covering the full range of applications from private gardens and lawns, to children’s centres, beer gardens and public spaces where the natural appearance of grass is desirable, but without the maintenance demand.
We can help you to decide which artificial grass is best suited to your location, and advise on related considerations such as drainage – which should not cause any problems. We can also help with measuring up to decide exactly how much artificial grass you need, supply the desired amount of your chosen artificial lawn carpet, and install it to the highest of standards so it stays firmly in place for the future.
