Leading artificial grass supplier, LazyLawn, has installed its award winning turf for The Vine Residential Services care home for autistic children.
The care home is an amalgamation of three properties joined together, one of which was formerly the home of 1966 World Cup winning captain, Bobby Moore.
60 square metres of Wonder Yarn 36mm were used in the installation at the Captain’s former home, which has recently been commemorated with a blue plaque.
Dawn Quye-Joyce from the Vine Residential Services said: “We were merging three residential gardens together to create a large open space for the children. As many of the children in our care are autistic, we decided to opt for LazyLawn due to the sensory nature of the product in terms of the brightness and softness of the grass. We also wanted something hardwearing that would be a safe, soft area for the children to play.
“Not only were the installers at LazyLawn quick and efficient, but they were incredibly accommodating to our needs and very knowledgeable of their product. The lawn looks great and the children love it!”
Dean Anderson from LazyLawn London East and Essex, said: “It was a pleasure to complete this installation. Not only was this the former home of an England champion, but The Vine Residential Services do fantastic things and it has been great to work with them and provide them with a garden that hopefully the children will thoroughly enjoy!
“Artificial grass is ideal for children with special needs as it is soft to touch and brightly coloured. It also makes a garden accessible all the way through the year, as it doesn’t succumb to bad weather in the way that natural turf does.”
LazyLawn’s flagship, best-selling product Wonder Yarn, scooped the Which? Best Buy award for artificial grass in 2016.
In a study of 12 samples of different artificial lawns held at a trial site in Yorkshire last October, Which? Best Buy gave LazyLawn’s product Wonder Yarn the highest score of 91%.
Artificial grass is popular in schools and children’s homes nationwide as it is a low maintenance and cost effective way of achieving a fantastic looking lawn all year round.
