There are many reasons why you might hire artificial grass – you could be hosting a wedding, arranging a party or looking to decorate your stall at a trade show. It has the widest range of uses imaginable and that makes it a very popular choice for many.


It comes with so many benefits that it is no surprise that it is now chosen above many other options. It is flexible in the way that it can be used and it is also versatile but it has a number of properties that really make a difference such as its durability and ability to deal with heavy use. However, it has to remain safe and that is one of the most important aspects these days because everything we do revolves around safety.


Therefore, it is important that you consider the company that you choose to supply and install the grass. This is down to the fact that they will have a duty to ensure the safety of yourself and the public and that means that the grass has to adhere to fire regulations. As proof of this, an artificial grass hire company will have to have a fire safety certification.


If they fail to have a fire safety certification then they are effectively breaking the law. Therefore, you should never, ever use a company that cannot provide proof that they are in possession of a fire safety certificate because it is simply not worth the risk.

A company that can provide artificial grass for hire will be professional, approachable and honest. As a customer, this will mean that you can trust them and the service that they provide because installing artificial grass is a not just a case of laying the grass out and walking away. They have to consider safety from a number of perspectives – in particular fire.

A fire safety certificate will prove that they have the correct knowledge and understanding about the products they use and how it can remain safe in the event of a fire. While artificial grass is not completely fire proof, it can melt and smoulder should it come in contact with a flame but the way in which the grass is designed will determine the outcome. To add to this, an artificial grass company that has a fire safety certificate will also consider the underlay that is used because this could also pose a risk. This means that all the correct materials are used in order to maintain safety at every level. To add to this, they will also use the best working practices to help deliver a service that is thorough and consistent.

Fire is not something that you can mess with and it can pose an enormous risk. However, choosing the right company to install your artificial grass will ensure that safety remains a high priority. This will mean that the installation, the product and the working practices all meet the specific requirements.

Your garden requires a certain amount of upkeep throughout the year in order to keep it looking good. This includes cutting overgrown trees or bushes, mowing lawns, cutting hedging and dealing with weeds. A garden requires so much time throughout the year that often, moles can become a real problem.


As small and cuddly as moles look, they can seriously damage a grass lawn, in fact, they can tear it apart and that can seriously damage the look of a garden. After spending time on your lawn, having a little rodent dig it up is almost unbearable. However, artificial grass provides a solution because of the material it is made of in comparison to real turf.

Instantly, a mole will find it difficult to penetrate artificial grass although they can still cause some damage and so, it is important that you prevent them from damaging your artificial grass as much as you possibly can. If you know that you have moles before installing artificial grass, you can use pest control to try to remove them but that is not always successful as they can return. Therefore, it is important that the correct work is carried out so that moles do not stand a chance against the artificial grass installation.


For any artificial grass installation to be successful, it will need to be installed correctly from start to finish. This includes the substrate, weed control and the grass itself. The substrate is especially crucial because this is the first level of the installation that the mole will come across. If they find that the substrate forms a level of resistance, then the chances are, they will head to your next-door neighbour’s lawn and will pop up there.


The substrate that often proves to be tricky for moles is cement-stabilised sand as it will prove to be dense enough for them to be unable to penetrate. We have used a galvanised mesh on several occasions If this is successful then you can wave goodbye to your mole problem but the other elements of the installation also come into play. Of course, weeds can be a problem and so, a thick weed membrane will not only stop weeds but it will also make it difficult for moles. If they miraculously manage to get through all of those barriers, they will eventually come up against the artificial grass and that is where they really will cause problems because they will not be able penetrate that.

If they do get through to the artificial grass, they will simply make the surface look uneven as they try to break through but that is about as far as it will go. In the main, artificial grass on its own is enough to deter moles but they can still cause damage. However, adding extra levels of prevention and barriers will only make life more difficult for them. Ensuring that your lawn is protected in every way will ensure that your artificial grass lawn remains looking smooth and even.

When large schemes are launched, it is important that they are launched in a way that leaves a good impression and makes a large impact. This stands very true for the OFO Bike launch in London.


London is always in the eye of the media and this means that any new initiative will certainly grab the attention of many people. The latest initiative where OFO bikes have been released into London to run alongside the likes of the “Boris Bikes” is one that needs to grab the attention of local residents who can take advantage of these bikes. These bikes have been set up in a slightly different way to the “Boris Bikes” as they do not need to be left at a docking station making them slightly more flexible when it comes to use.


However, they still need to compete with the “Boris Bikes” and other bike initiatives in the city and so, they needed to be launched in a way that really made a point and gave residents something to think about.

There are many ways in which a launch can be done but it really is all about doing something different and this is where artificial grass can really make a difference. The launch needs to have a punch and it needs to prove just how useful these bikes really are. This is where artificial grass can leave a lasting impression because of the way in which it brings everything together.


For the launch of the OFO bikes in London, Arttragrass was asked to install artificial grass. This was a very prestigious job that require professionalism and a knowledge that ensured a good job was carried out. Installing artificial grass requires an experience and understanding that leads to an installation that can be relied upon in every single way. At Arttragrass, we are seen as installation experts and so, the installation for the OFO bikes was carried out with great attention and care and that meant that the launch of the bikes was delivered with quality and finesse.

Artificial grass provides a clean cut appearance and that means that it makes everything look so much better. In this instance, the bikes had to be the centre of attention and the artificial grass certainly helped to achieve that. What artificial grass brings is a real injection of colour and a look that mimics real turf. However, it could be used for as long as required without any concerns of it becoming worn or tired looking and that is always a bonus.


The installation is thorough and involves ensuring that all measurements are met so that the grass is fitted in place perfectly without the need for any major adjustments. This kind of reliability is exactly why Arttragrass was asked to carry out the installation. An installation that is efficient, of high quality and able to withstand heavy use can help to really make an impact when it comes to launching initiative such as the OFO Bikes.

Many people rely on sports pitches and communities in particular will benefit from an artificial pitch.


Home Putting Greens

Golfers who want to perfect their game can spend more time practicing if they put an artificial putting green in their home. The surface can replicate that of a professional course but without the maintenance. The ball will have a true lie and will move in the way it should.

Conservatories are rooms that are bright and beautiful. They offer comfort and a view of the world outside but injecting a bit of colour in the form of an artificial grass rug will certainly make the difference. It is soft underfoot and is versatile while also bringing a piece of the outdoors in.

In the UK, we are bless with many things but our weather is not one of them. It is one of the most unreliable things about living in this country but when it comes to organising an event we know we have to deal with it.


In other hot countries, we often see how outdoor parties are held on sprawling lawns with spectacular views all of which is made possible unlike the london weather. In the UK, when it comes to arranging events we have now had to find alternative ways in which we can beat the weather and still have a great time.

This means that more and more events are being held indoors. It is shame but all is not lost. For those events that require an outdoor feel such as a garden or forest themed event it may seem difficult. After all, how can you replicate the true outdoors inside a building? It is a valid question but one that can be answered easily. That answer is Artificial Grass.


Unlike artificial grass of years gone by, it is now made so well that it is often difficult to tell the difference between real grass and artificial grass. This is great news for event planners who want a garden or forest themed event. As good as grass can be, the option to hire artificial grass will be the best decision you make because it can be designed to fit any shape and size it means that it will work in any venue. From the smallest of rooms to the largest of halls, it really can transform a room so quickly that before you know it, you have a garden inside. You may be arranging a wedding or a lavish forest themed birthday party, whatever your requirements, artificial grass really does make the difference.


It does not matter what time of year the event is held, whether that is winter or summer because artificial grass will look good no matter what. Even if it is laid in the summer and the weather is great outside, you will still appreciate the fact that you have a lawn inside. This is because it will continue to look good during the event and there is no chance of being caught in a shower. It works extremely well with forest themed parties because it brings all of the other props together to create a magical and almost real feeling and that is what makes artificial grass so great.


The best option for anyone who is considering arranging such an event is to hire their artificial grass. This is because it will come pre-measured and can be laid by our expert team in no time at all. Any issues can be dealt with instantly and we can guarantee that it will look great. Once the event has ended, the artificial grass can be removed quickly and taken away.
