My circumstances are tricky. Do you really understand my problem?

Answered by one of Senior Installers.

“I got into landscaping because I love it. I got into artificial grass because I saw the problems it could solve. I knew it would work in my own garden and despite my wife’s objections, I installed it and I was right: it did, and my wife loves it too. Consumer Grass have completed 100’s of private gardens and put the grass to hundreds of other uses. ”

Consumer Grass ” We simply say, tell us specifically what your circumstances are and if we cannot help, we’ll say so, but we do love a challenge and I’m sure we’ll come up with an artificial grass solution for you.”
