In other areas of the UK it has been installed in children’s play areas, this covers the area in grass that may look realistic but is kind to those children with hay fever. It provides a soft ground without the need for digging or planting.

Recently Wimbledon advertised “grass” seats for hire. These are seats made entirely from artificial grass and show the flexibility and creativity that artificial grass can bring about. Whether it’s sitting on it, having it indoors or even using it for mini golf.

A variety of styles and colours

Many falsely believe that artificial grass just comes in green, that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are not just a variety of colours available, everything from pale green to purple but there are also a wide range of styles. You can order thick long grass or small well cut grass. It can look as natural or as fake as you’d like it to look, it can be mixed with different shades to make it look diverse or it can be one colour throughout.

Artificial Grass Installation

The installation of artificial grass still requires an even surface and works with an aqua flow system, so that you don’t get flooding when it rains. The aqua flow system works underneath the artificial grass itself draining the water back into the soil below and ensuring it’s not only environmentally friendly but does not cause problems within your garden.
