Artificial Lawns

Is this grass for real?

Created by Anna Kapuvari

As part of our garden design and build projects, we often incorporate a new lawn area as one might expect. Traditionally this has involved either installing new turf where there was none previously, or replacing existing turf. However we are increasingly installing artificial lawns for our clients in London instead of real ones. Technological advances in the quality and variety of artifical turf are making these lawns a popular alternative to the real thing, and they offer a number of advantages. London garden designer James Walsh sees a number of advantages:

– low maintenance

– easy installation – some can be laid straight onto concrete

– good for shaded areas, roof terraces and balconies

– they look beautifully green all year round

– no muddy mess in the wet and winter months, and no resulting mess in the house

– minimise dirty linen and grass stains when the kids are playing outside

Artifical lawns do require brushing and hosing down to remove dirt and leaves that build up, but this is is much quicker and easier than the regular mowing required in the growing months. Additionally, if installed well, with proper natural- looking edging, then they look even more authentic.

Here is one we installed recently…..


We particularly recommend Easigrass – Easigrass – the above lawn is their Mayfair range – other ranges vary in length and quality and we can supply samples upon request.
