Ask RiotACT: Recommendations for artificial grass

By Spiral - 23 September 2016 6

Ask RiotACT

Hi All.

We are intending on getting artificial grass. We have seen some really bad front yards so there are presumably some companies doing very sub-standard work.

Can anyone recommend companies they have had good experiences with?

Thanks.

What’s Your opinion?

There is a good product inspired by Italy available.

It is sold in Canberra as “Concreta”.

Never needs watering or mowing.

The dog poo might be easier to wash off too 🙂

I go along with what chiflean said, “Please don’t do it. There is enough plastic everywhere without slapping more of it in your garden.”
My neighbour had artificial lawn and a dog. Bad combination, as the lawn looked disgusting with obvious dog poo, as unlike real lawn the poo couldn’t break down and disintegrate into the ground and just sat on display as deposited. Even after being picked up there appeared signs of the poo left behind. The rest of her garden was immaculate, so I don’t think this was just from neglect. I imagine all sorts of rubbish would just sit there on the plastic.
I got rid of all my lawn and replaced it with chips. I have planted it out with low mainly native ground covers. There are far better alternatives than plastic lawn. The chips and plants have so far proved to be low maintenance.

I’ve got natural lawn, but if I was going artificial I would go to Canberra CSG at Mitchell. They have a variety of artificial lawns available, some which look particularly realistic.

Not associated with them at all, was just impressed with their samples during a visit.

Please don’t do it. There is enough plastic everywhere without slapping more of it in your garden. There are low water ground covers if you really don’t want real lawn.

I house sat at a place that had Eco-Lush lawns, based in Tuggeranong. They’d had it for a while and it was ageing quite well, and looked more natural than not.
