Snooker Loopy about Fake Grass

Our latest fake grass installation was at a home in Basildon, Essex.  To our surprise, this was actually the home of professional snooker player Stuart Bingham.  Currently ranked 16th in the world and winner of the 2010 Australian Open, Stuart doesn’t want to waste time on lawn maintenance.

Born in Essex, Ball-run (Stuart) started playing at Staceys Snooker Club and is a member of Q-Ball Sports Bar in Basildon.  He turned pro in 1996 after winning the English Amateur Championships the year before.  He is perhaps best known for his 10–7, first round defeat of Stephen Hendry at the 2000 world Championships at The Crucible.  This year, 7 time champion Hendry had a 147 break against him.

His garden has spa set in decking and a play area for the children.  This made fake grass the ideal solution for the Bingham family.  No more muddy areas created from using the spa and the kids can enjoy the lawn without damaging it.  Of course, Stuart can now concentrate on his snooker – rather than having the hassle of mowing, edging, watering and feeding the grass to keep it looking good.

Here you’ll see us working on the garden; digging up the existing turf, levelling the ground and laying a geo-textile membrane to prevent weeds.

The end result is highly realistic, perfectly manicured grass which will stay green whatever the season.  The family opted for the popular striped effect grass in a diagonal pattern – the lawn looks like it’s been mown by a professional landscaper.
