With the John Lewis Christmas advert making an appearance on our screens and December fast approaching, we can officially begin to prepare for the festive period ahead. We thought we would share with you a few of our favourite ways to decorate your home with artificial grass this Christmas!
1. Christmas Tree Mats
You can’t beat the smell of a real tree, but we all know, like a natural lawn, a real tree requires a little extra care and attention. Make the tidy-up a little easier for yourself with a Christmas Tree Mat. Not only does it look good but you can protect your flooring or carpets from any scratches from the Christmas tree base or dropping needles. Plus when Christmas is over, just roll it up and put it away for next year.
2. Artificial Grass Table Runner
If you read our blogs you will know that we are a fan of this one but trust us it will really make your Christmas table come alive and it supplies a great backdrop to photograph your festive lunch spectacle! If it took you that long to cook, it deserves an Instagram worthy background! Be sure to tag us it you do @grassify_london
3. Christmas Wreath
This is a quick and easy one you can make yourself, you can maybe even use an offcut from your Christmas Tree Mat! Add a few flowers, faux berries or a ribbon to really make it sparkle and ensure your front door stands out this Christmas.
4. Artificial Grass Animals
Now this one is a little more difficult, there are lots of guides online for creating your own grass reindeers, or you could take the easy option and buy one readymade. While it may be a little investment, the beauty of an artificial grass animal is you can use it for years to come.
5. White Garden
Why not transform your front porch or backyard with a sheet of white ‘snow’ or in this case white artificial grass! Add a Christmas Tree, some lights and you have your very own Winter Wonderland!
So if you fancy getting creative with some of these quirky ideas give us a call at GRASSify for the best prices on offcuts ideal for adding that decorative touch.
10 reasons why you need artificial grass in Marbella
Regardless if you are not a fan of gardening or if you are a home décor enthusiast and a gardening fanatic who use innovative ways, there’s a new word to add to your gardening dictionary i.e. artificial grass. In Marbella, Artificial grass is now becoming more of a necessity!
An evergreen kind of situation will soon take over your house if you prefer artificial grass over real grass, which takes forever to look as you expect, especially in Marbella!
Many Marbella residents have made the switch and stopped investing their time, effort and money in real grass. Instead they now use artificial grass which is inexpensive and a unique aesthetic experience of its own kind. Plus, it stays green…. All year round!
Here are 10 reasons why you too should make space for it in your beautiful home instead of planning to make a perfect garden that might never materialize!
It requires very little maintenance. It will save you the considerate amount of time you spent mowing your lawn in the past. Now you can spend that time enjoying your garden instead and take in that everlasting sunshine in the South of Spain.
Artificial grass requires very little water for its maintenance. It saves water that usually goes down the drain after being used on real grass, especially in the summer! In fact, the only water you will ever use is to clean the grass once in a while. The Spanish water resources will LOVE you for making the switch, and so will your wallet!
Artificial grass in Spain will soon become a phenomenon when people will realize that they don’t have to spend money on expensive fertilizers like herbicides and pesticides or other inset killing medicines. It also lessens the threat to people’s health and keeps your beloved pets safe.
By avoiding the use of chemicals to grow real grass, you will add to the protection of environmental pollution. That too, not for one day but for a lifetime.
Take artificial grass as a one-time It is durable, long-lasting and does not require the effort of replanting.
It dries quickly so you will not have to go through the hassles to shield it from the rain. In case of real grass, rains can be a nightmare, as we all know and have experienced the trauma of slipping due to wet mud.
Playing on the ground was never that easy. First, it won’t damage the ground and second, there is no need to consider post climatic scenarios. With real grass, you don’t have that luxury.
A very low amount of cash is spent to replace the artificial grass in comparison to real grass that costs you exertion, patience, and money!
The natural-looking artificial grass can also be recycled and reused again for a much-reduced price.
It is also great for your pets because the material used is soft, easy to walk on, and lessens the risk of any injury.
Real grass needs sunlight but artificial grass does not have to be placed under sunrays to look good and stays fresh regardless of environmental factors.
In many ways, artificial grass is a good addition to your house. Plus you can still practice your green fingers by keeping some decorative plants which won’t be destroyed by overgrowing lawns! Artificial grass will give an exquisite look to your front and backyard. Everyone intends to make their life easy. People make smart choices to hack time and add more value to their life. Artificial grass is the right choice, especially in Marbella, and a deal that won’t cut you any losses!
We are big artificial grass lovers (for obvious reasons) but we don’t expect you to be convinced just by us telling you! That’s why we found you 10 Famous places that love artificial grass so you don’t have to just take it from us… take it from them!
1. Disney Resorts
Both Disneyland in Paris as well as Disney World in Florida realised the potential of artificial grass a long time ago! Why? Well imagine having to pay out for additional gardeners to cut the lawns in these massive establishments every day, not to mention the kids running around on the grass every day. It would be a nightmare trying to keep the grass looking green and lush on a daily basis. It does not take a mathematician to figure out how much money they have saved since installing artificial grass in their parks.
2. The Big Brother House
The big brother house has had artificial grass in the garden since the very beginning. Not just for aesthetic reasons – after all real grass would quickly rip up and damaged during the weekly competitions, but also because if they used real grass they would need to send in professional landscapers every week to clean things up! That would spoil the whole “being locked up with no contact with the outside world” theme of the show. So they wisely decided on artificial grass for the popular shows backyard.
3. The Albertsons Stadium
This stadium, previously known as the Bronco Stadium, is located in the USA, Idaho to be precise. The artificial grass used for this stadium is not your regular green artificial turf, in fact, it is blue! Of course the main reason to use artificial grass in this stadium is because of the beating it gets every time a match is played, but also, because artificial grass will hold the paint so much better than real grass! The grass occasionally gets replaced for maintenance reasons, but we are sure the stadium have saved a huge maintenance bill since changing to artificial grass.
4. Coronation Street
Here’s one we bet you didn’t know of before! yes, the lovely lawns of the Platts, Websters and Anna Windass are absolutely fake! Now how’s that for a bit of Pub Ammo! The reason the show installs artificial grass is because it would be impossible for them to look after the lawns AND make a quality show at the same time! Plus, the grass needs to stay looking good throughout the series, and not every show is shot at the same time, so to keep the consistency, they use artificial grass and no-one’s the wiser… well apart from those reading this blog today of course!
5. O2 Star Sixes
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of months, you will have seen us promoting the O2 Star Sixes quite quite a bit! That’s because we were asked to install artificial grass for this prestigious event back in June and we did so with pride! The event, which was planned in the O2 London Arena last for a couple of days and the GRASSify team were there for the duration of it. Installing the artificial grass within 24 hours and then taking it down again in record time. Only a professional company like GRASSify would be able to handle that kind of pressure!
6. The Playboy Mansion
There’s an obvious reason why the playboy mansion has an artificial lawn… because who would have time to look after a lawn when they are surrounded by so many beautiful women! Not even a professional landscaper could keep their eye on the job at hand, it would be mahem!! Seriously though, the 87-year old tycoon choose artificial grass because he used to host so many lavish (and we are sure pretty wild) garden parties, and real grass simply could not cope, no matter how much money he threw at it. Now his grass looks natural and fresh all the time and he can focus on the better things in life for sure!
7. The Chelsea Flower Show
Really???— yes really, the Chelsea Flower show has been using artificial grass for their famous gardening shows since 2010. Not the entire show was covered in it though, it was mainly the exhibit of designer Tom Smiths who added “he was prepared to put his reputation on the line using artificial greenery” and he was not wrong! Many followed after that! Tom added “It is a great product and shows how far artificial grass has come in the recent years”.
We always say how pet-friendly artificial grass is, and now you can hear it from the experts! At the world famous dog show they have also seen the benefits of artificial grass. Not only becuase it looks good for TV but also because it is so easy to clean! You can only imagine the mess the animals leave behind after a show, and how great it is just to pick up a hose and clean up in record time! Not only does it benefit them with regards to cleaning, it also keeps looking pristine after each and every show and that is very important for the people of crufts! It’s all about looking good after all!
9. The Wembley Stadium
Another stadium that took the right decision to install an artificial turf on their pitch. It was installed for the first time back in 2010 for the football Community Shield game between Chelsea and Manchester, and since then the pitch has been played on for numerous international games including the football final at the London 2012 Olympics. The hardwearing qualities of artificial grass gave the Wembley Arena’s owners the confidence to invest, and it looks like they definitely made the right decision, Where before they had the constant battle to keep their real grass looking good and up to par for their players, now they have one headache less and can focus on the game instead!
10. The Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden
Now we realised we cheated a little with this one as the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden is in fact located in Disney World and we already mentioned that one, but we thought it was worth another mention as they are JUST. SO. CUTE! Each year, this garden hosts the Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival, and Pixie Garden realised that artificial grass give the best and most desirable results. There’s heavy foot traffic during the festival which real grass would never be able to withstand, and the tiny gardens simply look much more magical no matter what gets thrown at it! So you must agree, giving the Pixie Garden a special mention was well worth it… now go to Google and image search “Pixie Gardens”… we promise you won’t be disappointed!
So there you have it, 10 famous places that love artificial grass! So now you don’t have to take it from us anymore, if it is good enough for Hugh Hefner…. (see what we did there?)
Now you don’t have to own a massive mansion, a football pitch or stadium to enjoy all the benefits of artificial grass, installing it in your private lawn (like those in coronation street!) would do the trick just as well, and you too can enjoy all the benefits, including saving a lot of time and money, plus having a lawn that looks good…. always!
Tired of muddy paws in your house and brown patches in the garden? Let artificial grass make your life a little easier…
Easy to clean…
When your dog needs to go, he needs to go… Artificial grass makes cleaning up any mess quick and easy. With no soil for waste to mix with, accidents simply sit on top of the lawn ready for you to clean up in one simple scoop.
Steer clear of chemicals…
Artificial grass requires no pesticides so you can rest assured your dog will not be exposed to nasty chemicals, and as weeds and pests such as fleas do not thrive on artificial grass there is no need for fertilizers, making your garden a pet safe zone.
Say goodbye to muddy paws…
We all know the rain likes to pay us a fair few visits in the UK. But when the rain falls we know muddy paws in the house will follow… Not with artificial grass!
No more holes…
Artificial grass is designed to be durable to withstand foot-traffic, paw-traffic and most importantly a dog’s tendency to dig.
Artificial grass is hypoallergenic, so dogs with allergies, especially those that are sensitive to grass, can still enjoy sunny days in the garden without the concern of any nasty reactions. It’s not only humans who suffer during the summer months!
Artificial grass is soft and cushiony, which reduces stress on dog joints and paws.
Just as there are many types of Artificial Grass, there’s a lot of ways to use artificial grass creating awesome spaces and artefacts (we like to call them ARTificial grass… see what we did there??). Many of our clients ask what can be done with the “left over” grass after we have installed the artificial lawn in their gardens, others would like to see if they can do something good with the offcuts. So we decided to list the 25 unique ways to use artificial grass, so you can get creative with your artificial grass leftovers!
1. Reupholster your garden furniture
First of the 25 ways to use artificial grass is furniture. Not only will this artificial grass upholstery look fantastic, it is comfy too! Nice and soft seats, and with very little maintenance required, PLUS it will instantly match your outdoor decor! 🙂

2. Make a new rug for your living room
Rugs can be expensive! Moreover, they are high maintenance! How many times have you spilled something on your rug, wine, pizza, ice cream (sounds like you had a great night in!). If only you had an artificial grass rug. You could simply take it outside, hose it off and continue your Netflix sesh without a worry! Now you could’t do that with your old traditional rug could you! Plus, it would be so original! It would be a great icebreaker for sure!
3. Matching cushions
Ok, so you have your rug, and your chair, now you need some matching cushions to finish it all off! Again… so simple to make from your artificial grass cut offs and such a decorative feature both inside and outside of the home! You would need to fill them up with an actual cushion though so they are nice and soft, but any old pillow will do! Or perhaps you have some old underlay or shock padding left too, then fill em up with that to get the desired results!
4. Awesome table runner
A fresh and green table runner is something everyone needs right? Mine always get so dirty though after a lovely dinner with friends (my friends are kinda messy, I must admit!) but with this lovely table runner, all I need to do it run it under the tap and it is as good as new again!

For the past few decades artificial grass has significantly began to replace natural lawn across the globe in everywhere from Olympic stadiums to professional arenas. GRASSify recently completed a job at The O2 in London for the Star Sixes, the first ever competitive world football tournament for iconic former international players. (Click HERE for photos and to see the GRASSify team in action!)
One of the sports worlds’ biggest supporters of artificial grass is the NFL (National Football League). In February 2017 The Super Bowl (NFL’s annual championship) took place at the NRG Stadium in Houston which uses artificial grass and next year’s event is also set to take place on an artificial grass pitch at The U.S Bank Stadium in Minnesota. This isn’t a surprise as now over half of the NFL stadiums opt for artificial grass rather than natural… so why is this?
365 Days of Play..
Artificial grass is always playable, whatever the weather conditions. In locations that experience heavy rainfall natural grass can be
highly difficult to maintain with the grass becoming waterlogged and out-of-use. On the opposite end of the spectrum, it can also be beneficial in regions where natural grass is prone to burning or struggles to grow due to the lack of rain.
With major sporting competitions rough play is the norm and the increased durability of the surface of artificial grass proves to be very advantageous as with a natural grass pitch a period of recovery is required after a game before it can be used again.
The fibres used to create artificial grass are designed to identically replicate each other so no areas are weaker or of a difference texture. This avoids changes in the speed of the ball during play or the ability for players to find footing, offering the groundskeeper or groundsman more control.
Artificial grass only needs a tiny percentage of the water required than its natural counterpart, which is a strong ecological and financial incentive. In addition as there is no mowing or weed removal required on an artificial pitch pesticides are not needed which eliminates the issues of chemicals leaking into nearby waters.
Whilst in the past playing on an artificial pitch wasn’t always a players first choice with the developments in artificial grass over the past decade it is now considered as good, if not better than real grass… and if its good enough for the NFL!
Following our recent work at The O2 in London, (CLICK HERE to read more about GRASSify at the Star Sixes) where we transformed the iconic venue into a state-of-the-art football pitch (described by Paul Merson as the best artificial grass pitch he has ever played on!) the team at GRASSify have felt inspired…
Artificial grass doesn’t have to only be used as an alternative to a natural grass lawn; you can use GRASSify’s grass for garden or home decoration or even to create a sports playground in your own home. Here are some of our favourite non-traditional artificial grass ideas:
Bring green indoors…
Brighten up your bedroom or living room with an artificial grass wall or paneling,
You can also use it to replace rugs and mats, or for more innovative landscaping designs that complement your home decor. The green hue is a great accent against other materials such as wood and stone and the natural vibe creates a warm and inviting space with a contemporary feel.
Play in the grass….
We all know young kids love to play in the garden, although sometimes it’s too hot in the summer months and the winter season often boasts endless rainy days therefore an alternative indoor play area is a fantastic solution. Lay an artificial grass carpet or rug in your playroom and reap the benefits. The shock absorbency it provides is especially useful in preventing injuries plus its easy to clean, odourless and offers a strong base for children’s beds, slides and other large toys.
Transform your office…
Artificial grass flooring for indoor offices is hugely popular as the natural elements create a calming ambiance, ideal for brainstorming sessions and letting the creativity flow. Why not add some water fountains or water features to complement the zen-like atmosphere.
Let the games begin…
If you love golf and have a large garden, why not treat yourself, husband or kids to the ultimate garden transformation and install a putting green in your backyard. It is a great way to get your children outdoors rather than sat in front of the television or computer (and your husband as well!) This idea works well not only in gardens but also on roof terraces that are often barely used. If golf isn’t their thing, a football pitch or giant board game using coloured artificial grass are also achievable options.
Time to relax with GRASSify…
If you love relaxing on the grass on a warm summer night, artificial grass can be a fabulous upholstery choice for love seats, couches and chairs. It is comfortable to touch and very durable, plus it can be hoovered like a regular fabric, it doesn’t hold dust and debris and doesn’t stain! Simply wipe it down with a wet cloth or hoover gently and enjoy relaxing on the grass whatever the weather!
Add a decorative touch…
If you don’t want to go all out with an artificial grass chair or rug, why not bring a touch of nature inside and opt for artificial grass cushions for your living room or conservatory. Alternatively artificial grass works wonders for wall art which can be personalised with anything from your initials, to your child’s name or perhaps your wedding date or house number. Another simple idea we love are the below grass placemats for a BBQ or garden party!
Whether you want to discuss your garden transformation, a home decor project or order an artificial grass chair! GRASSify are here to help, be sure to follow us on Pinterest for more artificial grass inspirational ideas or read our blog “25 ways to use artificial grass“.

All the greats in one arena, there’s no room for error in the grass installation, so the experts have been called in!
The line-up includes many huge names from the football world, including of course our very own Steven Gerrard, Brazil’s Rivaldo Italy’s Alessandrio del Piero and Germany’s Micheal Ballack to name but a few. The pressure is on to deliver. These legends are used to the finest and most advanced pitches, and we plan to exceed all their expectations…. in just 48 hours!

Not only does this installation have to be just as perfect as all our other installations, it has to withstand a bit of a beating over a short period of time. Furthermore, we want to make sure these legends don’t know better than they are playing on real grass so we have chosen our finest most hardwearing artificial grass range to ensure the boys won’t know the difference!
We start with the warm-up area...
Warm-up both for the players and our GRASSify team! The real work is only just getting started!
Then over to the main field
We worked 24 hours non stop taking shifts to make sure the field was delivered in pristine condition.
The Final result!
48 hours later and miles and miles of artificial grass, joining tape, shockpads and many cans of red bull, the pitch for the Star Sixes looks immaculate and ready to welcome some of the worlds best football players for the Star Sixes Tournament.
And then... it's kick off!
We have to admit, we’re a little proud watching from the sidelines with a beer in one hand and the other in the air cheering on our favorite players. Now all we have to do is wait (and get some sleep!) before we have to take it all down again.

A lawn is a lovely thing and also quite pleasing to the eye. It is the most beautiful part of the home where family members can unwind and just hang out. However, pleasure and beauty can come at a cost. The cost can be effort, time, and most specifically – money. It’s a good thing there’s a synthetic option like artificial grass in London as an alternative to natural grass.
Synthetic or artificial grass was primarily intended for use in football stadiums and other sporting arenas where natural grass maintenance was costly, as well as investment in special equipment and manpower was heavily needed. Over time, the use of artificial grass has spread to residential areas due to the benefits that it can provide to homeowners.
Why Homeowners Prefer Artificial Grass in London
The demand for residential artificial grass is rapidly growing in the market. It is usually driven by the combinations of best manufacturing techniques together with homeowners’ increasing awareness of economic and environmental long term benefits. Initially, artificial grass in London was limited to sports clubs but you can now mostly see them on residential lawns.
10 Long Term Benefits of Using Artificial Grass
Once installed, artificial grass requires very little maintenance since there is no mowing or watering required.
Artificial lawns in London can help households save money in water consumption, as well as in buying a lawn mower and its operation costs.
There’s no need to buy weed killers and expensive fertilizers.
Since homeowners don’t need to use fertilizers or chemicals to protect or grow natural grass, they are not adding toxins to nature which can permanently increase pollution levels to the environment.
You won’t have to invest time in pulling out weeds. Therefore, there’s more extra time for family activities.
Artificial grass in London lasts long so homeowners won’t have to be bothered with the hassle or expense of replanting period that natural grass always require.
Artificial grass also comes with excellent drainage. Therefore, it will quickly dry itself after washing it with water or after a rainfall.
The drainage of the artificial grass also means that there’s no need for you to worry about water deposits that last for days and leaving mud patches when stepped in.
Playing sports on the artificial lawn will not cause any damage to the artificial grass.
Artificial grass looks perfectly maintained at all times in such a way that homeowners will never feel embarrassed by an untidy lawn.
Striped Lawn: Popular Artificial Lawn Design for Residential Use
Striped lawn artificial grass is a perfect design for sports fans home owners. Since it is synonymous with the football playing field, the striped lawn is a perfect artificial lawn in London design for tennis pros or footie mad. Aside from achieving a sporty lawn design, it can also be a durable area for the whole family to play on.
Artificial Grass Installation: How to Achieve Striped Lawn Design
When installing the striped lawn artificial grass design, there’s no need to lay two different kinds of grass. As a matter of fact, the same type of grass is laid and simply divided into stripes through having grass piles facing opposite directions. In that way, the lawn looks striped when being hit by the lights. This simply means that homeowners can have exactly the same quality of grass in their entire lawn but there’s no need for them to mow it in order to maintain the stripes. In order to make your lawn look its best, only trust experienced artificial grass service provider. Contact Grassify today for more information on artificial grass in London.
New residents in Spain and, indeed, visitors on holiday are quite likely to be surprised by the grass lawns here. Stepping out in bare feet onto
a grass-covered garden in England is a soft, if often somewhat damp experience. However, put your bare feet on the Spanish ‘grass’ used in most urbanisations and private villa gardens and you’ll find it can be really rather painful to walk on. Examine it more closely, and you’ll see that it is not grass at all, but a shrub-like growth that covers the surface of the soil, rather like a horizontal creeper. Its tuberous stems are the tough bits that are unkind to the shoeless. There’s a wide variety of this grass, but many find the “grama” variety the most wearing in the hot climate.
Of course, the climate in northern Europe is quite different to that of southern Spain and the lawns in Marbella use this creeping type of grass because it is drought-resistant and needs less water than the ‘cool season’ grass you find in England, for example. Also, UK grass is what the experts refer to as ‘bunch type’, which means that when you get a bald patch, as happens frequently, you need to sow more seeds to repair it. The Spanish creeper variety self-repairs when damage occurs, hence its popularity in Marbella and the entire Costa del Sol.
Introducing artificial grass in Marbella
However, we have great news for Marbella residents; you no longer need to fear the pain of stepping on Spanish grass, or maintaining a lawn, because GRASSify has brought artificial grass to Marbella and the Costa del Sol. This is the highest quality fake grass available and we are confident that when you see it, feel it and put your feet on it, you’ll be delighted and opt for this no-to-low maintenance lawn for your garden.
Presidents of urbanisations, we encourage you to talk to us about the advantages of GRASSify products not just in terms of the appearance of the communal gardens, but the economics of reducing the amount of time your gardeners need to spend on caring for the grass areas. Our new office in Marbella serves the whole Costa del Sol, so please contact us to arrange a no-obligations chat about how we can help.
Commercial artificial grass in Marbella
Private residential gardens and urbanisations are not the only spaces that can benefit from artificial grass in Marbella. We can demonstrate the ways in which property owners can update a balcony, terrace or patio with fake grass to make it more inviting and add that touch of green, which makes a place come alive.
With fake grass from GRASSify, nurseries and schools can create green areas that won’t turn brown in the hot sun and, most importantly, are cleaner and easier to keep clean. An artificial lawn space, or games pitch in a school means that children can happily enjoy outdoor activities all year round.
And speaking of games pitches, GRASSify can lay an artificial pitch for football clubs, padel courts and even golf courses. If you think that covering a course like Las Brisas, Santa Maria or Finca Cortesin in fake grass is a big ask, we’d say, yes, it’s a big area, but we can do it.
