Artificial Grass

Many, many people have tried to cultivate a beautiful natural lawn in Cyprus, and many many have been left embarrassed! Why? Because what works 'back home' is not successful in Cyprus due to the extreme hot and dry summer, and the rain storms of winter. With the recent reduction in price of material, home owners are now frequently turning to artificial grass.

Artificial turf is a surface of synthetic fibres made to look like natural grass. It is most often used in arenas for sports that were originally or are normally played on grass. However, it is now being used on residential lawns and commercial applications as well. The main reason is maintenance-artificial turf stands up to heavy use, such as in sports, and requires no irrigation or trimming.As with most construction, the key to a successfull, and longlasting artificial grass installation is preparation.  I will ensure that the previous surface is removed, relevelled to ensure drainage, then add two layers of substrate, levelled and compacted with a vibrating plate, the grass then gets fitted, spiked, and joints glued. This preparation gives your artificial grass installation the right platform to ensure it will remain in position for many years to come.
