Artificial Lawns Companies Newcastle Upon Tyne

When it comes to choosing artificial lawns companies in Newcastle upon Tyne. You certainly need to do your research, not all companies are the same and neither are the brands and quality of the grass. After almost 40 years of working in the landscaping industry, we certainly carried out our research before aligning ourselves with an artificial grass brand. We needed to ensure the artificial lawns we were installing were of high quality, natural looks and had great product guarantees. After quite a lot of research, we chose the LazyLawn brand of grass. For your information, LazyLawn is currently the UK's largest artificial grass supplier & installer. Only last year they won the Which? Best Buy award for artificial grass back in June 2018. Famous names such as Alan Titchmarsh and Amanda Holden have chosen to purchase the LazyLawn brand of grass including many national brands such as; Selfridges, JD Wetherspoon and Centre Parcs.

Take for example this recent project we completed in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne

We carried out artificial lawn installation to both the back and front gardens. At the front, we also paved the area using tegular block paving and we installed Wonder Yarn 26mm. At the rear of the property, we paved part of the area using Indian Sandstone paving blocks and Wonder Yarn 36mm for the grass at the rear for its more softer natural looks. (more…)
