Has anyone had artifical grass installed on a garden bigger than 40 square metres?

Dare I ask, how 'artifical' did it look?

Who did you use?

Would you recommend? And do you have a dog?

Thanks in advance

I steer well clear of that Spice

My neighbours on both sides of my house have it. Bad for the wildlife, but good for their dogs to poo on :{

I have artificial grass on my back garden. Not sure of the size but pretty big. I did it because my 2 dogs kept digging up the lawn. Can't recommend it highly enough - no mud trailing in from the dogs, can wash it off, never needs mowing, always green. Bought mine from ebay a few years ago now.

Bad for the wildlife

Two of my neighbours have it. Looks like crap, not remotely like grass. It is green I suppose, that's it's only good point. It's not even wearing well after a year.

What the birds like is worms dig up the grass so they can get to them

My neighbours have it no more mowing the grass they say, Then comes autumn and they are hovering the grass can you imagine how funny this looks. oOoOoO

My friend has a large garden and paid about £3k for the grass and £4k to get it laid and then another £4k to get more people to do it properly. Looks ok but far from natural

My son had it fitted so my grandkids could play football etc all year round. Looked great, they've got 2 dogs and they were fine on it. At the moment though it looks like a green rippled pond, moles have been trying to burrow up underneath it. He's had to have it lifted while they try and get rid of them, then have it refitted, very costly process.

Have it at our local school, it's been very hard wearing, but they did pay for an expensive version several years ago. Only used in the area that they wanted the children to have access to when the ordinary grass was too wet. Still needs a fair amount of sweeping as constantly covered in leaves etc in Autumn. It doesn't look natural close up , but isn't bad from a distance. Have seen some terrible versions of fake grass being sold though ( ideal home exhibition had a stall this year and I saw some very "bald" looking samples .

I've got an artificial lawn in a faint shadow stripe and it looks fantastic.
Every visitor I've had comments on how good it looks.
I"ve got two dogs and it's easier to clean up after them and they no longer come in from the back garden with muddy paws.
Couldn't recommend it more highly .
Worth paying more for a decent quality one though as I've seen cheap ones and they look ****.

Thank you all for your feedback.
We are looking to change to artificial as we have issues with moss and ants and need the lawns returffing.
With our dog weeing on new turf, could result in it being damaged almost immediately, but this wouldn't be an issue with artifical. Which I think our little girl will also enjoy playing on. Our concerns with artifical are:
1. What it looks like on a big space as only seen small samples
2. The smell of wee in the summer
3. And do you need to wash down after every wee.
Then there is the dilemna of the turf to choose and who to fit as there seems to be a very big difference and a difference of opinoin with who you speak to.

@apocalupsenow, would you mind PM me a pic of your garden and letting me know what length pile and make you choose please?

If we haven't had any rain just hose it down every few days or even once a week should be ok.
I've never smelt anything anyway.
I'll sort out a pic for you later.

We have it in our back garden. It was laid 2 years ago and still looks new. We bought from Great Grass and got Touch of Luxury which is long and very cushioned as well as being different colours to look more like grass. We had it laid by a local guy. It was his first try at fake grass but he did lots of research and spent time in the prep. We have young children and dogs. Children can play outdoor all year round with no mud. Dogs can wee and poo on it but ours don't tend to much, they prefer the shingle under a tree. Just rinse wee with water if you want. We pick up poo then wash with soap and water due to children playing on it. We do brush it every month to keep it looking clean and new. We can't recommend fake grass enough. The only thing I don't like is that sometimes I get static shocks when on it.
