Synthetic turf New posts

Garden makeover ideas

A lawngarden or yard may be transformed with the help of artificial turf and artificial grass.

Are you thinking of giving your garden a bit of an overhaul ready for the summer months? In this blog, you will find some ideas for your garden whether you are thinking of changing the whole area or just looking to make a few improvements!

You should never lay artificial grass directly on top of existing grass or bare dirt.

Artificial grass is an option for those looking for a low maintenance easy solution for your family garden.  Giving your outdoor space a new lease of life and looking good all year round!  As well as being pet-friendly, it is also UV protected. And as you won’t need a lawnmower or hedge trimmer, it means you might even be able to create more space in your garden by getting rid of your shed!  Find out more in this blog about artificial grass.

Can Artificial Grass be “Patched” into a Natural Lawn?

If you’re searching for a black-and-white answer to whether it’s physically possible to mix and match artificial and real grass, there’s no reason why this can’t be achieved. Synthetic turf provides a versatile solution in which areas of all shapes and sizes can be covered, and it can be installed without an obvious seam between artificial and natural lawns.

Should Artificial Grass be “Patched” into a Natural Lawn?

Whether the mixing and matching of artificial and natural grass can be done is different to the question of whether it should be done. Although synthetic turf is incredibly realistic, it almost certainly won’t match your natural lawn perfectly. This is because natural lawns are directly affected by growing conditions and maintenance measures, meaning it’s nearly impossible to keep every stretch of natural turf looking identical. For this reason, we wouldn’t suggest mixing and matching artificial and real grass, as we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to mask the presence of the synthetic patch.

Can Artificial Grass be Laid Next to Real Turf?

Although we don’t advise you to lay artificial grass within your real turf, laying the two surfaces next to one another might be something you’d like to consider. Sectioning your garden into “zones” is one of the best ways you can maximise your outdoor space, and having two sets of terrains is an ideal way of creating zones. We recommend installing an edge, separating the natural from the artificial grass so that the natural grass can be mowed and maintained with no risk of damaging the artificial grass.

Real Grass vs Artificial Grass for Sport

When it comes to artificial grass vs real grass for football, synthetic turf is the clear winner. Not only are artificial sports areas able to overcome all climate conditions, but they’re also more durable and require less maintenance than real grass.

Similarly, the safety of players is easier to assure on synthetic turf, as there are fewer lumps and bumps to trip over, as well as less mud to slip on. In addition to the minimised risk of injury, artificial grass is also installed with shock pads to absorb the impact of any falls that may occur.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of artificial grass from a sports perspective is its versatility; from football to tennis, almost anything can be played on these surfaces.

Cost of Artificial Grass vs Real Grass

It can’t be denied that the installation costs of artificial grass are higher than that of natural grass; however, the maintenance costs incurred by a real lawn can really strain your pocket. Not only do you have to pay out extortionate amounts of money to care for natural turf, but there’s no guarantee that real grass will grow adequately in your garden. Regardless of your garden’s location and your gardening expertise, you can rest assured that an artificial lawn will look great all year round. As a result, synthetic grass is much better value for money.

Pots and Planters for Stunning Front Garden

Using a variety of different-sized pots and planters is a great way to dress your garden, porch, terrace, or patio.  From modern to country styles, you can embellish your space in any way you like as there are so many colours and sizes available online or on the High Street.  If you get a pot made of fibre stone, fibre clay, polystone, or plastic; these can survive the outside elements at any time of year!  Click here for our ideas.


Composite decking is proving to be very popular due to being weather-resistant, durable and available in a large variety of colours.  It is a low-maintenance choice as it is stain resistant, easy to clean and it won’t splinter or rot.

Composite deck boards are made from a mixture of wood fibres and plastic resin, moulded to create a much harder-wearing and longer-lasting decking board.  The result is an incredibly robust finish, capable of daily wear, without the regular maintenance requirement associated with traditional wood decking.  As the product is moulded, the wood polymer composite provides a fantastic slip-resistant surface that offers either a natural-looking wood grain or a grooved plank finish.  Click here for some decking ideas.

Real Grass vs Artificial Grass for Dogs

One of the biggest concerns for pet owners when contemplating whether to install a synthetic lawn is how this will impact their furry friend. Well, you’ll be glad to learn that pets tend to take to artificial grass very quickly, much like if you recarpet a room in the house. What’s more, a synthetic lawn looks and feels almost identical to a natural one; it just won’t have that natural smell, and your pooch won’t be able to dig it up and make mud.

If you have a small dog, you may find that they actually prefer artificial grass, as it won’t become overgrown and leave them feeling overwhelmed. Similarly, you won’t have to pry through overgrown blades to find your dog’s “business” to scoop up.

Last but not least, a synthetic lawn can cope with pets’ habits better than a natural lawn. For instance, pets tend to have a favourite lounging spot. On a natural lawn, grass would struggle to grow in this area, whereas artificial grass will spring back even after being regularly compacted. Not only do pets have a favourite lounging spot, but they also have a favourite toilet area. Natural turf can stunt the growth of the grass; however, on synthetic turf, the area can be regularly scrubbed to maintain your garden’s hygiene.

Do you need to put the stone under artificial grass?

Apply a thin layer of crushed granite stone or any other crushed stone aggregate after levelling out the ground to consolidate.

So happy with our new lawn, From the quote to the finished lawn, these guys are professional throughout. Great time keeping, friendly and know what they are doing. They explained what they was doing all the way through the installation of the artificial grass. Nitii was very patient when we kept asking for additions or changing our minds throughout the project. They really do go the extra mile !!! It looks perfect and the children can’t wait to get outside. It’s been a pleasure working with Saygrass and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them for any job. Thanks Nitii we love it !!!!

Excellent services

From the very first consultation to the final touches, my experience with SayGrass Artificial Grass Company has been nothing short of remarkable. The grass they've installed feels incredibly natural, almost indistinguishable from real grass. It's lush, vibrant, and soft underfoot. My children and pets have taken an instant liking to it, and I've noticed they spend much more time outdoors now. The team was professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely passionate about their work. They listened to my vision, made valuable suggestions, and executed the project flawlessly.

At a little loss for words, spoke with a lovely person call Neeru. The initial conversation was positive, great phone etiquette. Was given an immediate price point as a reference. Upon searching around, they were the cheaper deal by at least 1k! I needed a quick turnaround too, Neeru was able to organise and get everything sorted within a week! Honestly shocked at the incredible speed of service, the people who came to complete the job were cordial, laid floor covers down to protect my floors and even swept up after they were done. Some things are expected, but this whole process has shown me that there are just some bits of class and customer service you can’t put a price on. Will be using them for every bit of Garden work from here on out!

Very professional service all round. The installation team arrived on time and worked non stop. They really paid attention to detail which left an immaculate finish. Normally workmen don't clean after themselves but I was impressed that the team left everything very clean and tidy. Very competitive prices for an excellent service. Have already recommended to friends and family!

I am very pleased with the end outcome, and the soft grass that was chosen looks excellent. I would like to thank Saygrass for transforming the garden and to give them the highest recommendation. Overall, it was a great experience with top service and installation.
