Artificial Grass for Residential Gardens

This makes it the perfect choice for someone looking for a lower-maintenance garden without compromising on the aesthetic of their outdoor space.

Artificial Lawn for Dogs and Pets
Any dog owner will tell you that their pet is a creature of habit – and when it comes to your garden, this can often leave lasting and unsightly damage when it comes to their favourite spots. With the best artificial grass for dogs, though, you can say goodbye to unappealing grass and instead, have a garden to be proud of all year round. Not just for the dogs, artificial grass is great for use with catteries and catios, providing your feline friend with a soft under-paw surface to enjoy those warm days in the sun.
The Most Durable Artificial Lawn for Dog Owners
The ideal artificial turf for pets will have a shorter pile. The shorter pile makes it easier to clean up any messes and it is much more durable in terms of outside play and increased footfall from your excitable furry friends. Clean up is just a quick spray down with your garden hose or if deeper cleaning is required, scrubbing with some soapy water will remove all potential stains.
Many of our customers also opt for our Landscape Lawn if they are looking for something dog-friendly without compromising on realism. Its short 30mm pile length and hard-wearing fibres mean that it is perfect for pets, easy to clean and looks real!

Artificial Grass for Sports and Active Gardens
Whether you are looking for the best artificial grass for playing sports in the garden or for heavier usage, there are a number of different lawns available to utilise. Sports surfaces require a much more durable lawn due to heavy footfall which can lead to more wear and tear in certain areas – such as on a football pitch. Further to this, some sports require a more specialised surface for performance purposes, such as putting greens.
With a long-lasting durable and hard-wearing artificial lawn, you will no longer need to worry about ankle-twisting divots and thinning patches from pets, children and their friends charging up and down the garden in excitement. Less maintenance means more time for you to join in the fun, less concern about the garden getting heavy use in the warmer months and a garden that looks good all year round, regardless of the weather.

Lawns for Roof Gardens and Terraces
Having a great looking garden is no longer reserved for those in the suburbs – the addition of artificial turf can transform a roof terrace with ease for those living in more urbanised areas. That being said, a roof garden is a wonderful addition of extra outdoor space for anyone with space.
The Most Luxurious Artificial Lawn for Your Roof Garden
In many ways, artificial grass is ideal for use on a roof or terrace, as it is lightweight and drains with ease – which is very important in smaller spaces with a potential weight limit.
When looking for the right lawn for your terrace or roof garden, you need to consider a shorter length grass.
The Environmental Impact
Being environmentally conscious is a big topic at the moment. In order to be a more sustainable, greener company, businesses should encourage more considerate internal workings and practices, including, but not limited to, reducing waste and paper usage. Another way to help a business become more planet-friendly is to turn to artificial grass for indoor and outdoor rest areas.
Not only perfect for use in the garden, artificial grass is an excellent choice for roof terraces, balconies, schools, or even for sprucing up your exhibition stand, ensuring you look the part while also reducing your impact on the world around you.
When using artificial lawn in your business, you can gain these great benefits:
- Greatly reduced electricity and water use when compared to a natural, seeded lawn – no need to constantly water and mow
- Does not require regular pesticide or chemical top-ups to keep pest-free
- Offers an excellent, cost-effective method of introducing green spaces where previously it was not possible or practical to add an outdoor area
