What grass was used in the Big Brother House?

LazyLawn has had a long association with this iconic TV show. Our products were first featured in Big Brother in 2006 (in the secret garden) and on the main lawn in Celebrity Big Brother 2007. Grass Park Junior was also used on the patio area and around the hot tub in Celebrity Big Brother 2007. In 2008-2010 our Lazy Supreme product was used. In the years following, our award-winning patented Wonder Yarn product has been used. This is now our top-selling grass in the UK for landscaping projects.

Which artificial grass is best for dog owners?

Any product in the garden lawn collectionis perfect for dog owners. Lazy Supreme, Wonder Yarn and Lazy Signature have been particularly popular and have been installed in many gardens with dogs and the customer comments have been very positive. The high-density tufting and sand-filling protects the pile from dog claws.

To deal with dog mess, remove the bulk of the mess and use our Poopcleanz product. This ensures the smells are washed away. For Dog Wee use our Peecleanz product.

How does LazyLawn look so real?

We invest heavily in product development to achieve a range of fake grass that looks and feels so natural that people cannot tell it is artificial. We have received hundreds of letters and reviews from satisfied customers that have had our products installed, explaining that their neighbours, friends, and relatives that have visited have not even realised they have a synthetic lawn!

What little maintenance is required of the LazyLawn?

We recommend using warm soapy water and a stiff brush to clean shorter-pile grasses. Jet washes and hoses can also be used with care. To remove leaves on longer-pile grasses either use a blower, light rake, or brush.

To prevent weeds or moss forming, we advise you use a weed killer solution twice yearly on the whole of the lawn area.

For dog mess, remove the bulk of the mess and again use a soapy water solution and brush the area if required or use our Poopcleanz product. This ensures the smells are washed away. For Dog Wee use Peecleanz.

How can I pay for my order?

We accept most major credit cards (excluding AMEX), cheques and bank transfers on all supply-only orders. For professional installation, a deposit is required to secure your booking with the balance payable on completion of the works. The installation is usually paid for by bank transfer or credit card, but please discuss the best option for you with your licensed installer. We also offer consumer finance packages in selected areas of the UK to enable you to simply spread the cost of payment.

How long will my LazyLawn last?

It is estimated that your LazyLawn will last up to 15 years through normal use. Our artificial grass range is fully UV stabilised. All professionally installed lawns come with a genuine guarantee. The length of the guarantee depends on the turf chosen and the project. Typically, there is a 10-year UV guarantee, a 7-year product failure guarantee and a 2-year installation warranty, which is upheld by your installation company and not the LazyLawn brand. The company completing your project can provide you with a specification sheet outlining all the product details, plus a warranty.

Can I have a BBQ on my LazyLawn?

It is best to use a sand-filled grass like Lazy Supreme, as it has a good fire rating (tested to BS 4790). We would always recommend placing the BBQ on top of slabs or bricks and avoid getting any hot surfaces too close to the turf. Our products are made of plastic and will be damaged if exposed to very high temperatures.

Wonder Yarn 26mmis the perfect choice. The dense pile of this product makes it ideal for this application with the added benefit of looking highly natural.

Is LazyLawn cheaper than a real lawn?

Yes, they can be over a 10-year period. If you were to add up 10 years of watering, feeding, cost of two mowers and (in many cases) the cost of re-turfing, a LazyLawn can be a cheaper alternative. Also consider the time saved at the weekend and reduced waste in your garden bin! Read more here: LazyLawn costs less than real lawn.

Which artificial grass has the stripes in?

Our original Lazy Grass product was famous for its unique stripes. However, this product has now been discontinued as newer technically advanced products have been introduced such as Lazy Supreme and Wonder Yarn as these products offer greater durability and more advantages. If you would like stripes in your lawn using a newer product, then the products can be installed in sections facing opposite directions as shown in the image below, where we think you'll agree, the result is stunning!
