INSTANT GREEN LAWN WINS ARTIFICIAL GRASS PRAISE FROM GARDENERS AND LANDSCAPERS Thursday 20 March 2008 PDF Print A NEW range of superb artificial grasses are proving ideal for architects and landscape gardeners working in city surroundings. And gardeners wanting instant results to turn concrete gardens into green areas have latched onto the benefits of synthetic grass that needs very little maintenance. Manufactured by a company that produces artificial playing surfaces for professional rugby and football clubs, the Lifestyle range from Artificial Grass Ltd of Cumbria has been specifically designed for every type of location. Some of the rich green pile carpets can be filled with sand to create the feel and performance of a natural lawn. Others can stand alone – and are smooth enough to be used as putting greens for keen golfers wanting practice in their own surroundings. “We have designed every surface to meet the demands of specific users,” says chief executive George Mullan. “Whether it’s for patios and balconies, lawns and sports practice or walkways and exhibition areas, we have something for everyone. “Architects are finding our Lifestyle range particularly useful for instant solutions to creating green spaces in city landscapes – roof gardens and balconies, for example. “But gardeners with small areas that they don’t want to have to mow continually have found the Lifestyle range fits in with their plans perfectly.” Artificial grass has been produced in Cumbria for many years and in March 2007 the company launched a new website (www.artificial-grass.com) dedicated to serve the UK and European domestic market. “It's been an amazing success story,” says George. “Orders have poured in and media interest in our range of artificial grass products has been tremendous. In September Artificial Grass Ltd made their first appearance at the GLEE gardening and landscaping show at the NEC in Birmingham. “As manufacturers of our own products, it's clear that people are keen to put their confidence in us,” says George. “After all, it's only logical that if you make the product, there must be a wealth of experience and expertise behind the scenes.” The Lifestyle range of artificial grasses are: Lifestyle City: Bright Emerald Green 10mm hardwearing UV-stabilised close tufted polypropylene curled pile.
