Ready for Summer

PST Lawns supply and install high quality artificial grass all over Ireland. Our artificial grass is the perfect option for home gardens, kids play areas, home putting greens, créches and more.

Artificial grass is the ideal alternative to a real grass lawn, soft, resilient, incredibly hardwearing and weatherproof, no matter what our good old Irish weather throws at us. It also requires very little maintenance. All you need to do occasionally is use a yard brush or stiff bristled brush to sweep the surface to remove any debris and keep the grass fibres standing upright. This will ensure your lawn stays looking great all year round and increases the lifespan of the surface.

Tips for looking after your artificial grass.

We have a number of superior grass products to choose from, all with varying pile heights (Valu EVERlast, TRU Grass, FRESH Cut and LUSH Green) as well as TEE Green golf grass and multi coloured MULTI Use artificial grass.

If you’re thinking of a garden makeover we would love to hear from you. Talk to our team today.

Irish Sailing Foundation – Artificial Grass Outdoor Gym

The new Performance HQ is located on the grounds of the Commissioners of Irish Lights in Dun Laoghaire. Funded by the Irish Sailing Foundation, Its aim is to improve both educational and training opportunities for the Irish sailing teams in advance of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The outside area consists of three converted shipping containers, to be used for briefings and athlete education etc. The area between the containers was earmarked for a gym/training area using our low-pile height artificial gym grass plus shock pad.

PST Lawns’ artificial gym turf is extremely versatile and an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor training surfaces. It’s incredibly tough and hard wearing, yet creates a soft, smooth surface that is ideal for intense training, circuits, pulling, dragging and heavy weights  etc. The additional shock pad layer underneath the carpet provides extra cushioning and shock absorption, exactly what you need from a multi-use training area.

Delighted with the feedback we received from the Irish Sailing Foundation’s Head of Development, Kathryn Grace:

“PST Lawns were the most professional – and competitively priced – premium quality artificial lawn supplier we could have found for the completion of the Irish Sailing Performance HQ. Ruari was a pleasure to deal with every step of the way, even though I was possible the most maddeningly fussy client they’ve ever dealt with! Father and son team Eddie and Jordan were the most patient and good humoured people I’ve met in long while and we are all delighted with the finished result which was delivered on time, to budget and above spec.”

Artificial Grass Installation Types- Full, part or supply only

Full Installation

In this scenario we would usually need to remove topsoil from the area before installing a stone base. This stone base aids with drainage and also allows us to ensure a smooth, level area to lay our artificial grass. Once the artificial grass is in place we apply a silica sand infill which weighs down the artificial grass while helping the fibres to stand upright for longer.

Part Installation

Many of our customers choose to do some of the prep work themselves before we apply the finishing touches. Some choose to remove the topsoil and leave the PST Lawns team install the stone base, while others have the stone base in place. Completing part of the installation yourself can help to reduce the final cost while having the reassurance that the artificial grass installation has been completed by experienced installers. Get in touch with us for more detailed information on our ideal build up.

More and more people are looking to install artificial grass in their gardens so that they can enjoy it all year round. Having artificial grass installed in your garden means that you and your kids can make use of the garden, no matter the weather. And you won’t have to clean any muddy footprints in the house! Here are some reasons why you should consider installing artificial grass in your garden:

It’s Durable

PST Lawns’ artificial grass products are designed to last. Wear and tear can turn natural grass areas into an unsightly mud patch. Our artificial grass products are manufactured to the highest standards to ensure they last for years and years. We also use a silica sand infill to ensure maximum longevity for our products.

It’s Clean

With artificial grass there will be no more muddy clothes or footprints being dragged into the house. Because our products are permeable, any rain water will simply drain away. Any leaves or debris can simply be swept away, and any mess from pets can be picked up and disposed of!

It’s Safe

Our products are CE approved and ROHS compliant, meaning there are no harmful chemicals used during manufacturing. For added safety, we can also install Shock Pad underlay to provide additional cushioning. Shock Pad is extremely popular in gardens or areas that will be used by kids.

It’s Realistic

We have carefully chosen artificial grass products that look, and feel like the real thing. You will get the benefit of a natural looking lawn that requires very little maintenance, so you can get rid of that lawnmower! PST Lawns’ artificial grass products are also UV resistant so you don’t need to worry about your grass colour fading over time.

It’s Versatile

PST Lawns can also install our artificial grass onto decking, patios, concrete and even rooftops! Dull areas can be transformed instantly with our products, giving you a vibrant area to enjoy. We can also supply materials only for those of you that wish to complete the installation yourself.

What is Shock Pad?

Artificial grass for gardens - PST Lawns fake grass experts

PST Lawns’ Shock Pad is a 10mm thick foam pad that is installed underneath our artificial grass. Shock Pad provides excellent impact protection and cushioning and we would recommend that it is installed in any play area for children. Schools and creches often install artificial grass to give their children an outdoor play area that can be used in all weather conditions. The addition of a Shock Pad underlay will give teachers and childcare assistants reassurance that the children are protected when they stumble, fall or jump on the ground.

Can Shock Pad be installed in gardens?

Of course it can! If your garden is used as a play area, Shock Pad can give you piece of mind that any impact from falls or bumps is minimised. Very often we install our Shock Pad near trampolines, swing sets or play equipment. Coupled with our artificial grass, your garden will be a safe, clean and hard wearing place for everyone to enjoy!
 

What about concrete, paving or decking?

No problem! PST Lawns’ installation team can install Shock Pad onto almost any surface. Installing artificial grass onto concrete, gravel, paving or decking is a popular option for many people. Having a layer of Shock Pad underlay will ensure that your new lawn feels soft and safe underfoot.

Shock Pad is also a great option for gyms and sports clubs looking for an indoor functional training area for members and players. Get in touch with us for a quote today!

Artificial Grass Installation Over Gravel

Brighten Up Your Garden With Artificial Grass

Gravel is often installed when people are looking for a low maintenance, hard wearing garden. It is certainly hard wearing but can prove difficult to maintain, especially if weeds or grass begin to grow up through it. And it can look boring and monotonous after a while.

PST Lawns artificial grass can be installed directly over gravel in most cases, transforming gardens into a vibrant and inviting space. Providing there is good drainage, we can compact and level the existing gravel, top up with a layer of sand and lay our artificial grass directly on top!

In most situations we would also install our Shock Pad underneath the artificial grass carpet to provide additional cushioning underfoot. Shock Pad is a great option for families with young children who will be playing on their new lawn no matter the weather.

How Much Does Installation Cost?

Installing over gravel can also be a cheaper option than a full installation. Get in touch with us today for a free quote!

Artificial Grass, Astro Turf, Synthetic Turf, Fake Grass-it’s all the same right?

EVERgreen artificial grass for gardens

Artificial Grass for Landscaping

The artificial grass used for residential and corporate landscaping is specifically designed to look and feel like real grass without the need for constant care and maintenance. Usually these artificial grasses have a pile height of 30-35mm and only require sand infill to give a more stable base underfoot. PST Lawns’ TRU Grass, FRESH Cut and EVERGreen are ideal for residential gardens and corporate spaces.

 

Artificial Grass for Sports Pitches

All Weather Sports Pitches

GAA, soccer and rugby pitches require artificial grass that has a much higher pile height, usually 50-60mm. Both sand and rubber infill are then used to allow the artificial grass carpet to perform like a natural grass playing pitch. PST Sport are a leading installer of all weather pitches across Ireland and the UK.

 

 

TEE Green artificial grass for putting greens

Home Putting Greens

Putting greens require an artificial grass carpet with a pile height of 16-18mm. The shorter pile height gives a consistent, true ball roll. TEE Green is a high quality artificial grass carpet installed by PST Lawns in home putting greens all over Ireland and is available with stimp ratings of 8 (slow), 10 (medium) or 12 (fast). Contact us for a quote today.

 

 

multi use artificial grass

Multi Use Games Areas

MUGAs are a popular option for schools as it allows for a number of different sports to be played, including basketball, hockey, football and tennis. A 24mm pile height gives the ideal surface for multi use and a sand infill provides stability and durability underfoot. PST Lawns MULTI Use artificial grass also has split fibre technology which further increases the durability of our installations.

Can artificial grass be installed on decking or paving?

Artificial Grass Over Paving

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance

Although they seem like a maintenance free option, decking and paving stones require a lot of care and attention. By installing artificial grass you will eliminate the need for intense weeding, cleaning and brushing. Giving you more time to relax and enjoy your garden!

Create a non-slip surface

PST Lawns’ artificial grass can transform decking or paving that may be treacherous in wet weather into a non-slip area that is safe for everyone. Garden steps that may have been tricky to negotiate in the rain will no longer be a cause for concern. Our artificial grass products are extremely durable meaning they are perfect for high traffic areas.

Safe for kids

We can also install our Shock Pad when covering concrete paving or decking areas to provide a softer, and safer, area for kids to play. Shock Pad is laid directly under our grass carpet and provides additional shock absorption which reduces the risk of injury.
