Seriously thinking of getting an artificial Lawn , our site remains a building site , we have no lawn left just thick hardy weeds that even when cut are painful and uneven to walk on . So i thought until our site is finished { some hope } at least the Villa would look half decent and be more comfortable to walk on , and we will not have to worry about whether it is being watered or not . Any experiences good and bad would be appreciated and info on a company around the Bogaz / Iskele area would be good

Many thanks , Simbas

Don't be afraid that you will end up with the old naff looking fake lawn syndrome, nowadays you can get stuff that looks so real you'd be had pushed to tell the difference... only horrid brown patches on the real stuff give it way!



Add to that the benefits - no watering - no weeding - no cutting and you are bound to see the that it's very un-green to attempt real grass here.

And I want to Butt in as well.

Anyone know where said Astroturf can be procured and an approximate cost indication would be appreciated?

Girne area but I assume supplier will deliver and install.

Hi Cheggs,



Is this for your new tennis court? Seriously, we are interested as well, so if you find a supplier with a good price let us know.

TBW

I was actually looking at what the cost would be verses stone cover/membrane/weeding/watering/maintenance and all the associated costs of a natural ground cover as some developments have quite large areas that do need attending with of course the costs associated.

Maybe a bit pricey up front but deduct the maintenance costs and over a future period may end up more cost effective.

Has anyone done this and have cost models available?

Thanks eastenders.

Actually that reminds me.

I will email you at work about another subject but maybe you could point old Chegwin in the right direction as to where he could purchase such ground covery?

Have had a small area of astro turf for 5 years which has done well. If edges are shuttered to prevent fraying it should remain impervious to ultra violet rays, rain etc for years. Used for playing Boule (when we can afford the Pimms to go with the game !) but mainly for plastic skittle games when grandchildren bored with the pool. It was expensive to buy from Lefkosa but hopefully by now more retail outlets and lower pricing. I have noticed that when used in restaurants etc where there is much foot traffic it can look tatty when worn but should be great in areas of garden with pathways for regular movement. If it might help you weigh up the costs involved and the likely life span of the product you are welcome to view it.

Thanks DD.

I believe there are various qualities available and I have seen it on large rolls in the past but for the life of me canít remember where. Same old thing. When you donít want it itís everywhere but when you need something it becomes invisible!

So, if there are any others who have experiences with faux grass I would welcome their comments and information for possible outlets.

Chegwin, i bought some last year from Tolgas in Lapta ( think thats the right name ) it is on the left as you go from Girne and the rolls are outside his bar so you cant miss them. If i recall the price was £20 per square yard, expensive yes but worth every penny. I put mine down myself but i think they will fit it for you for an extra cost.

At the risk of teaching grannies to suck eggs it occurs to me that the longevity and value of the turf will be determined by the amount of effort put into preparation of the ground. If simply laid on rough ground the sharp rocks etc will leave "high points" which under normal wear and tear can turn to punctures. Similarly, if soft sand is used, as the ground takes in water, the soft sand will collate into little "hillocks" leaving a lawn with a scattered mole hill effect. Suggest that batons to edges and joins be preceded by much effort to remove all sharp stones and there be only a thin layer of the black, hard type, sand, or similar, across the site. Hope you end up with all that you seek and Barry Hearn will want to rent it for an Outdoor Snooker Championship !

I can see a wallet attack coming on but I suppose only a short term pain.

My Son was told when looking at Astra Turf is to pay out for the better one, otherwise he will be sorry, also suggested to Vacuum it once a month sounds silly but that's what he was told
