Outdoor Lounge

The fake grass acts as a soft lounge carpet in this modern seating area.  Aesthetically it has broken up the patio and looks neat and crisp against the concrete.  Plus, it will look great without watering, mowing, weeding or awkward edge trimming.

The owners have created an extra room at the bottom of the garden as an extension of their living space.  The artificial grass lawn will stay forever green and is maintenance free.  Maybe this modern home office was previously a shed containing gardening tools, mower and maintenance products.  The fake grass means they’ve freed up the space.

Contemporary Kids

This compact, modern play area includes a playhouse, swing and climbing frame.  It’s a great example of how to create a small space just for the kids within your garden.  The artificial grass means it will always look fresh and new – without muddy, patchy areas under the swing.

English Country Garden

We love this picture because it shows that fake grass can blend in perfectly in a traditional English garden.  You simply cannot tell the difference.  The owners can now concentrate on tending to their plants, flowers and borders in this beautiful, classic suburban garden.

Brilliant Balcony

We covered this large balcony at a property in Ilford.   With the addition of some comfy reclining chairs or a garden sofa set, residents have a green grass garden to enjoy.  It shows how fake grass can extend the use of your living area.  A concrete floor does not feel inviting – soft grass carpet on the other hand does.

Famous Fake Grass

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Fake grass is in fashion, endorsed by many celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Kristen Bell and David Basche.  Preferred by A-Listers for its pet and eco-friendly qualities, it’s used in many well-known locations around the World.  Here’s a few you may have heard of…

Houston Astrodome –Texas was dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World, opened in the 1960s as the World’s first indoor baseball stadium.  Enclosed natural grass withered away and they famously had to paint it green.  Next season saw the advent of astro-turf.

Coronation Street – The UK’s most famous street is not all cobbles – the Websters, the Platts and Anna Windass have fake grass lawns.  Producers now have one less thing to worry about.

Big Brother House – The contemporary BB garden is of course fake, watching the housemates’ mowing the lawn doesn’t make for great TV.

Playboy Mansion – Lawns surrounding the legendary grotto are more attractive and easier to maintain with artificial surfaces.

Disney World – and Disneyland have synthetic grass areas throughout their resorts.

Crufts – The World renowned dog show uses canine friendly fake turf on set.

Emirates Stadium – Home of Arsenal FC after their move from Highbury in July 2006.  A total of 7 Premiership clubs have fake grass pitches including Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and 2012 Champions Manchester City.

Regiment Way Roundabout – Warner’s Farm on the A130 Chelmsford.  Ok – you’ll only know of this one if you live in Essex.  The island enjoyed localised fame when it was transformed with a new artificial surface, installed by Leisure Tech.
