Stuart,

Use the two web sites and request samples on-line. Suggest requesting "large samples" as this would give you a better visual effect.

Hi Guys, I'd never really considered artificial grass and to be honest hadn't heard of anyone using it in outdoor garden settings so I'm interested in your experiences, particularly who your typical customers are. Has anyone been commissioned to lay artificial grass for a school playing field? Thanks!

WOuldn't say I have a typical client. My range from 50 - 90 M2 and they all have their own reasons for wanting ag.

Latest two are to cover a decking aroound his swimming pool and the other which is a nearly new build but clay soil and wanting a more all year round play surface for their young child.

I would always push for the real thing but if the client doesn't want the hassle or the aree is a particular problem for turf then AG is idea.

Hi,

We have been installing Artificial grass for a number of years, It is a great alternative to normal turf especially in damp areas and shady areas where the grass is never at its best.
We have had clients from all backgrounds from childminders who have kids running riot in the gardens to professionals who havnt the time to cut there grass but like a clean cut lawn,all of which the grass is designed for.
The great thing is ther is minimum maintenance
no cutting
edging
watering
feeding
as long as the leaves are picked up there is very little to do!
I have installed a lot of different types of artificial grass and have decided which one we prefer.

On the basis that the grass costs approx. £20/m2, to install an area 60/m2 would cost what?? We have just taken up the Namgrass dealership & are experienced landscapers, but would like advice on costs from people used to installation. Any other info would be gratefully received.

£20.00 / sq. m seems very low compared with synthetic sports turf, (£1,200.00 for a 60 sq. m area) but then they are constructed on a drained dynamic stone & membrane foundation.

Does anyone know the carbon tax (+ aggregate tax levy, etc) associated with for installing synthetic grass / lawns?

Are there any issues with maintenance? With artificial sport surfaces cost are approx. £8,000 for a deep clean that includes a cleaning solution to kill off any virus such as MRSA, kill mosses & algae then lifts the sand / crumb back fill removing any debris and then returns the cleaned infill into the sward?

I am currently evaluating a biological maintenance system that will maintain cleanliness and prevent moss / algae formation. So far the 2 year trials are looking very good. by not having to use the usual disinfectants there are no toxic residues.

The name of the product will be called Vescor and will be available from mid February this year.

Hi to all in the group.

I have around 8 years experience in artificial turf, working in all aspects from manufacturing of the product to installing, selling, managing small to large projects working with recognised names such as Sony and UEFA.

I would be happy to advise or assist anyone with any enquiries from sourcing turf to installation and best practise.

Speak soon.
