It was about 12 years ago I was with a good friend in Las Vegas of all places, and we had been walking around looking at the sites and ended up walking up the semi circled driveway of a casino. It was semi circled as it curved around a huge lawn. The lawn seriously looked beautiful with all the landscape/planting that had been done and I said to my friend "look at what money can buy - a beautiful lawn like that. Not a weed to be seen, it's probably fertilised every 2nd day."
My friend said "Wow what a lawn... I'm walking on it - I've never seen a lawn so lush."
He jumped over this little fence, took his flip flops off and then to my amazement said "This grass is not real... it's plastic."
I didn't believe him so jumped over and sure enough it was artificial turf.
I had never seen anything so realistic looking and decided this is what I wanted at my own home.
A year or so later I was on a buying trip in China (actually for clothing) at one of the trade fairs and I couldn't believe what I came across, several suppliers of artificial turf just like the Las Vegas one I had seen. I chatted to them all, learnt a little about the production/quality/feel etc and brought my samples back to NZ.
Everyone I showed, family and friends, just couldn't believe the real look and especially the feel of the grass.
Well I did nothing with the samples for around 6 years as I was busy doing other things but always had them in the back of my mind and one Saturday I was about to mow my own lawn at home and looking at my mossy depressing weed infested lawn I said "enough is enough."
I grabbed my samples out, contacted the companies and after several conversations and all that goes with importing a product I purchased enough to lay at my own home and had a good amount left over (due to the minimum shipment requirements).
The left overs sold rather quickly as more and more people saw my lawns (and realised the ease of instalation - it's sure not rocket science - just hard work) and before I knew it I needed to order more for others and well the rest is history as they say.
What makes me laugh is some people I actually have to convince that my lawn is artificial!
If you want to know more about the 'Never Mow' luxury lawn then
request a sample or give me a call Rob 021 864 367 and I would love to be of asssitance to you and have your place looking like that gorgeous lawn I saw that day in Las Vegas.
Hear from you soon.
