Here’s six stunning projects that are sure to make you fall in love with Trulawn too!

Love the Look: Shady solutions

Shade is one of the main reasons you might choose to replace your lawn with artificial grass. Unfortunately a nice south facing garden is no guarantee of a sunny spot! Tall trees and neighbouring houses can have a big impact on how much sun your garden gets and how good your lawn looks and feels. Problems associated with shade: Grass does not get enough light to grow Causes the ground to remain cold and soggy after rain Weak grass wears thin easily creating muddy patches Moss takes over the area Types of shade Full sun: An area that has more than 6 […]

Love the Look: Artificial Grass and Garden Rooms

Gardens are not just seen as an outdoor area anymore, but as an extension of your total living space. An increasing number of people are choosing to build garden rooms or buildings in their gardens, to maximise this space, creating private sanctuaries, offices, studios or living areas to use and enjoy. Artificial grass can work well with a garden room or building for practical and aesthetic reasons. Pros of artificial grass and garden rooms… Clean and contemporary Will not tread a muddy path between buildings Time saving (no cutting, no watering, no fertiliser) Can be cut to any size or […]

Love the Look: Vertical Gardening

Living walls and vertical gardening are fast becoming the choice feature for contemporary gardens. Where space is limited, a living wall can provide a welcome dose of colour and scent, or if you don’t have the time for a lot of gardening, then it can be a more manageable way to incorporate plants into your outdoor space. Some gardens simply aren’t suitable for creating a place full of flora, whether due to soil content, light or water issues, and it can be costly to overhaul the whole garden to make it so. Not to mention the subsequent maintenance costs to keep it […]

From Building Site to Beautiful

Trulawn has transformed thousands of lawns over the years. One of the most common requests we get is to replace a lawn that is more mud than grass! New Homes Newly built homes often have gardens that are unfinished. The ground tends to be made up of building dirt rather than soil which will actually allow plants to grow! Compacted Soil If you’ve got a garden that isn’t regularly maintained or a lawn that isn’t routinely aerated then compacted soil can also hinder drainage. This can be made worse if your house has been built on land with a high clay content. Concrete Jungle […]

Love the Look: Artificial Grass and Decking 2

Decking is still incredibly popular in gardens; it’s an easy way to make the garden more manageable, can be used as part of chic design and provides a great community space. These are also some of the main reasons people get artificial grass! And they go great together. We’ve got some great examples of the two together, but first… Pros of Artificial Grass and Decking No trouble mowing in between tricky angles and up against edges. Basically you can have your decking whatever shape you want, and the same for fake grass! Low maintenance garden all year round. They both take very little effort to keep […]

They compliment each other wonderfully and are great if you want a garden that can be used for playing, entertaining or just a place to sit back and relax without too much hassle!

Love the Look: Artificial Grass in High Places

If you don’t have a traditional garden, you might think you can’t have grass. Well that’s not quite the case thanks to the fake stuff!  It looks as real as natural grass, but of course won’t need watering or die because it’s made of plastic.
