The Dog Has Ruined Our Lawn . . .

We surveyed 100 dogs across Yorkshire, asking what they considered to be their highest priority, when choosing an owner.  As you might imagine, ‘a never-ending supply of food’ came in first place.  However, ‘a decent garden’ came in a close second.

As a dog owner, the garden is probably a priority for you.  Gone are the days when you could just let your dog out the front door, to roam the streets unsupervised.  When he/she gets a bit stir crazy, or needs to go ‘do its business’, or perhaps just wants a sniff around outside, the best you can hope for, is to let it out into your garden.

In my last blog, I discussed the importance of having a garden that you can use and enjoy all year round.  “Yeah, but you can’t do that when ‘man’s best friend’ digs, scratches, rolls, poops and pees all over it!” . . . Well, actually, you can!

In the blog, ‘One bark at a time’, Fred’s comments on his struggle are all too familiar to many of us:
Inevitably, though, big round patches of brown would appear and pretty soon the green was polka dotted with those flattened, dead areas.
He continues:
Between the neighbours’ overshadowing trees and Stella’s [the dog’s] buckets of pee, not a blade of grass survived and eventually everything turned to mush and then back to primordial backyard mud.
Over recent years, artificial grass has become the ideal solution to all those problems surrounding day-to-day use of the lawn. Struggling to maintain a lawn, whilst keeping pets, has now been resolved.

What about their business?

We install our fake grass with a breathable underlay which means that it is fully drainable. It actually drains better than a natural lawn. Your […]

The Great British Lawn.

In Yorkshire, we have an average rainfall of about 1m each year, yet our gardens are still a crucial part of raising children, keeping pets and relaxing with friends, drinks and burnt sausages…

With the ever-increasing squeeze on our time, we have seen a great increase in the need for low maintenance gardens that still serve the family purpose.  There comes a point when the patchy, yellow grass we stubbornly insist on trying to manage is no longer ‘cutting it’.  Artificial grass has arrived, in all its no-mow glory and with it, restored pride in the Great British Lawn.

Crayola green, scratchy, greengrocer’s grass?

5 years ago I would have imagined artificial grass to resemble a bright green, harsh sports surface – obviously plastic, and pretty cheap-looking.  Look around the artificial grass industry today, and this ‘AstroTurf’ has transformed into a high quality product with an impressive range of shades, textures, thicknesses and even sounds!  Yes, that’s right, the actual sound of the grass under your feet does vary across different products!

Needless to say, there are some pretty poor products still out there, but Neolawn exclusively installs a product called ‘Easigrass’ which, after extensive research into the market and a visit to their factory in Belgium, we believe is the highest quality product on the market.  All Easigrass products are made with the end-user in mind and they have developed a full range of grasses, each woven with multiple shades and yarns, so we can guarantee your lawn won’t look like it was sprayed with ‘Crayola green’ paint (and yes, this does actually happen in the U.S. in times of drought – companies have started spraying people’s lawns to try and regain their green colour!).

Come Rain or […]

Balcony in Leeds City Centre transformed by Neolawn

We had been thinking about adding some artificial grass to our grey, city centre balcony and discovered Neolawn offered an incredibly high quality, realistic product. Installation was expertly completed by Phil Hicks, who installed the lawn perfectly into the space available, even neatly surrounding the posts of the railing at the balcony’s edge.

Installation of ‘pets paradise’

We contacted Neolawn because we keep a number of animals in our fairly large garden, just beyond Pool-in-Wharfedale. We wanted an area of ‘soft landscaping’, which would be suitable and able to cope with the our cats, chickens and dogs (we keep a large number of hens and we breed working cocker spaniels). We opted for Oasis, because we wanted a high quality grass, and liked the colour and tones found in that particular product. We did look at other brands, but found Neolawn’s products to be superior.

Highfield Primary School ‘Magic Garden’ project

In 2012 the school PTA were asked by the Reception class staff to fund the creation of a Magic Garden on an unused part of the school grounds.

What Neolawn created for us was indeed Magic and is now regarded as one of our most lovely and popular spaces in school. Our youngest children play in the garden on a daily basis and enjoy exploring its many areas.

The quality of Neolawn’s work is excellent and the garden has proved very durable and resilient to the many small people who have played in it over the last two years. One particular feature of the garden is an artificial grassy slope which the young children enjoy climbing up and down.

The quality of the material used has been excellent with no rips or slips.

The project was also very successful because Neolawn listened carefully to what we needed the garden to do and created plans that met our objectives in full.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Neolawn’s work as highly professional and of a high quality.
