If you are wondering how to make your event more unique, look cleaner and more natural all the while staying within budget and without the extra manpower then you should read this blog.
Since we launched our artificial grass hire services at the beginning of this year, our phone has not stopped ringing with people asking us to supply artificial turf for their event. Anything from weddings, ceremonies, anniversaries, corporate events to sporting events, you ordered, we delivered.
But what is so great about artificial grass at events, and why should you add this to your event budget too?
1. It looks amazing
Even though artificial grass hire for events has only become popular in the last year or so, and we supplied and installed artificial grass for thousands of events, it still amazes us what a difference artificial grass makes to the decor of an event.
It can instantly lift a room and make it look fresh and clean. It also helps covering up stained carpets and especially in colder places, it has been known to warm a room up significantly.
2. It is cost effective
Whether you hire a room, area or tent, one thing will be for sure, you are getting old and boring carpet to go with it, or you need to fork out to even lay a floor in the first place!
Not only will artificial grass add to your decoration instantly, you will get a rich and full “carpet” of lush green grass for practically the same price as re-carpeting.
This means you will spend less on other decorations to cover up the horrible ugly floor and your guests will be pleasantly surprised by the natural and fresh decor
3. It is save and comfortable
Imagine walking down the aisle in your perfectly white dress and it getting all dirty and soggy because it rained last night or the grass is just not looked after very well. Not to mention all your invited guests on high heals sinking away in the grass or the sand?
You can stop worrying now because artificial grass for hire for weddings will take all those worries away (now you only have another 999 things to worry about for your big day!)
Artificial turf will not only look great for your wedding, it will make sure your guests can walk comfortably around the outdoor areas, there will be no uncomfortable stumbles down the aisle and afterward you can just roll it up and send it back! No mess to clean!
4. It is eye-catching
You are going to an exhibition, great, so are about 300 other companies… so how do you stand out from the crowd? That’s right! Artificial turf!
Many companies now choose artificial grass to decorate their stand at large exhibitions, not just the floors but the walls too! Making their stand look bigger, brighter and more eye-catching than that of their competition.
Imagine you are a real estate agent selling properties, would it not be nice to have a chat with your clients on a bench on your artificial grass like you were in a garden? It will make them feel comfortable instantly!
5. It is easy
Compared to traditional carpets, artificial grass is so much better for your event. Not only does it look good and add ot your decor, it is super easy to clean… and you don’t even have to do the cleaning!
People might drop some food, drinks or confetti might have been thrown around. In normal circumstance the venue might charge you for the cleaning of that and the carpet hire company might not be too pleased with the end result. But with artificial grass you simply don’t have that problem!
We come to collect, no matter how dirty the grass is, we will simply roll it up and go, for it to be jet washed after each use. Simple, clean and MUCH better for the environment don’t you think!
So now you know why artificial grass for hire for events is so popular, what are you waiting for! Visit our Artificial Grass for Hire page and contact us today to add a bit of that artificial GRASSification to your event too!
Not only is artificial grass a great background for a product shoot and will blend in well especially if your background is set in a forest, it is also very versatile since artificial grass comes in so many colours these days.
Furthermore, some film shoots simply have to take place indoors, and you have to have realistic artificial grass to ensure your fans believe what you are trying to show them!
Here’s some examples of why artificial grass for hire is a great idea for the photo and film industry:
1.It makes the set look real.
Regardless if it is for a photoshoot or a film set, artificial grass will make your set look realistic and lush without even having to leave the studio. Especially if you are shooting with a green screen, the right artificial grass will blend in naturally with the background and have your viewers be none the wiser.
2.Gives a clear message
If you are selling a product that is to be used in the outdoors, you want to show your buyer where they can use your product. That is why artificial grass if often used in the promotion of sports gear, garden tools and outdoor furniture. And you don’t want to be setting up a whole set outside for each furniture set right? That is why it is done indoors with the use of artificial grass.
3.It’s all about the light
Sometimes when shooting a movie or making product images, you need to be there just at the right time to get the perfect lighting… but nobody has time for that nowadays do they? This is why these shoots are often done indoors with artificial lights and… artificial grass! This way the producers and photographers can control the light and take as much time as they need to get the perfect shot!
4.Because it sells
Selling a property isn’t easy these days, and especially if the home you are trying to sell looks a bit worse for wear. It has been proven that images of homes with lush green grass would get 30% more viewings than images that did not have this feature. – Of course you are going to have to explain on the day of the viewing what happened to that lush green lawn that was so temptingly presented in the images, but you might then distract the viewer with the other features of that property and still get a sale!
5.Because it’s fake
Yes you might aswel call a cow a cow… artificial grass is not real, but that makes it all the more interesting to use on sets that show “unreal” things! Especially in cases of horror movies or fantasy films is artificial grass used the most. It makes it easier for the producers to create a set of something that does not exist in reality but still make the viewer believe there might be a chance…
These are some of the ways artificial grass for hire is used on tv sets and photoshoots, and there’s a strong increase of enquiries about this service now as our artificial grass is so realistic, it saves film producers and photographers thousands of pounds to use artificial grass over a shot on location.

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.
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! 🙂
It is not only you who will enjoy your new outdoor furniture, we are pretty sure your pets will love it too!
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! It’s a win-win!!
5. Cats love artificial grass!
Does your furry friend like to scratch things? Then this item is a great alternative to plants! This artificial scratch pole will make your little tinkles feel right at home, plus, it looks great in your property, both inside and outside, so it will not disturb any feng-shuing you had going on!
6. Add some matching place settings
Wow, we’re going all the way here aren’t we?? And why not I say! Artificial grass should be embraced, should be everywhere and loved by all! … ok, sorry, I got a little too over excited there, but will you just look at these cute place settings! Who wouldn’t want these in their house!
7. Spice up your wardrobe

Clogs not really your thing? Why not try the same but then using your flip-flops! It’s like walking on freshly cut grass all year round from the moment you put them on! Now if this won’t improve your mood, we don’t know what will!
10. Drive around in style!
Now this idea is sure to make heads turn all the way to the bank (or supermarket, or cinema, where was it you were going?). All you need is a bit of heat /water / wind resistant super sticky glue (seriously, make sure it sticks, we don’t need any accidents now) and your leftover artificial grass and you’ll be the talk of the town! (for all the right reasons of course!)
11. Drive around in style! (VO2)
Or, if you’re under 18 and not yet have a car, or you just love driving around on your moped then this one might fit you better! Again, make sure the artificial grass sticks properly, and we’re pretty sure this is not legal in all countries, so let’s just say we’ve warned you! 🙂
12. Drive around in style! (VO3)
Oh, you’re more of a sporty type are you? Good for you! 🙂 Then we have this little green example. You will fit right in when crossing around in the hillsides! But don’t forget where you left your bike! The camouflage is pretty accurate and we don’t want you to loose your bike in the middle of a field!
13. Just go nuts!
So this example is a little extreme, but for those of you that are super fanatic about their artificial grass, you will love this one. Just stick the green stuff everywhere! On your walls, your floors, your furniture, and really create a super green natural environment in your home, or office. You could even get a couple of plush rabbits, sheep and perhaps a cow and you’re done! It’s like living on a farm but without all the hard work! Result!
14. Make a doormat
We like to call this a little “taster” of all the green goodness that’s to come once you enter this door… you might call it a doormat. Whatever you call it, you will love it the same. This doormat will not only brighten up your home, they are so easy to clean! And very cost effective!
15. Something for the fish
Aside from decorating your own home with artificial grass, what about the home of your beloved pet fish?

17. Mobile Phone Case

19. Make her shine!
And while we’re on the subject of jewelry, what about these amazing earrings! They totally match the rings, so now all you need is a dress and the wedding’s complete! (we would strongly advise against an artificial grass wedding dress, but if that’s what rocks your boat, you go girl!)

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“.
Finally the day is here! We have started the installation of Artificial Grass for the world famous Star Sixes in the O2 Arena this July.
Star Sixes is a competitive six-a-side indoor football tournament where former international players are chosen to represent a senior national team for which they played.
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!
Let the Games Begin!
With GRASSify’s most exclusive Artificial Grass Installation
To add to the pressure of installing artificial grass on such a high profile event, we were also presented with the task to finish the installation in as little as 48 hours! Bring out the big guns!
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.
And what will happen to all this luscious artificial grass?? well… stay tuned to find out who we’re donating our grass to!
