Have you ever dreamt of having a putting green in your own back yard? Maybe you have, but the thought of having to maintain the grass to a perfect standard is pretty off putting. Just keeping a normal lawn under control in our climate can be a time consuming job. And it doesn't leave you much time to work on your golf!
One of our Trade Partners, Tom Finlay of Garden Art has recently completed an installation of one of our new products; Kombo Grass™.
You will quickly see that what was formerly a dull, and unused area of the yard, has now been transformed into a lush, tidy and (importantly), zero maintenance putting green. Kombo Grass™ is a third generation artificial grass. Unlike other types of artificial turf, it does not require a sand or rubber infill on the surface of the grass, making it more cost effective to lay. It also requires less maintenance over time because sand infilled artificial grasses tend to eventually grow weeds, and rain/ wind sweep the sand to the lowest point in the yard, where it sets like cement, and becomes extremely hot to walk on.
Artificial turf is ideal for shady lawns or spots where real grass can’t grow, such as roof gardens, balconies, and around swimming pools. You can see that the installation above would have been a "dead zone" for grass. And with the ever increasing importance of water conservation, and the rising cost of water, installing artificial grass provides savings in both water and money. For the health and environmentally conscious, synthetic turf has no need for fertiliser or herbicides, making it completely safe for your family and pets.
Tom is very well practised in custom designs for areas of all sizes. From small pockets in domestic gardens, right through to acreage style properties. Tom collaborates with his clients to design completely unique and custom waterfalls and features, dry creek beds, stonework, steps and paths, retaining walls, pool surrounds, paving and assists with plant selection as well.
Being a Trade Centre, most of our product is available in bulk. But we also know that there are many people who like to be able to ‘grab a bag’ of their favourite product to get smaller gardening jobs done.
Although we are heading into winter right now, our mild climate means that it is actually a very good time to install turf. In fact, there are some real advantages to laying turf as we head into our cooler months.
With Winter officially just a couple of weeks away, lots of our customers are thinking about fire pits. Such an Australian way to get together and enjoy spending time with family and friends (or just your own thoughts). Our good friends at iLandscape have got a range of fabulous Yagoona fire pits in stock, and we can help you out with the gravel, deco gravel, blocks, pavers or pebble to complete the landscaping around your fire pit.
