For the third year in a row Evergreens have covered the large seating steps in artificial grass in the newly renovated Granary Square which is located just behind Kings Cross Station and Googles new office.
The project’s brief was to cover the steps for a 2-3 month period but due to its popularity now stays for over 8 months. It was vital that the granite steps could not be damaged or have anything stuck to them but had to be vandal resistant and not effected by weather including high winds or heavy rain.
One option was to totally cover the steps with ply and then bond the artificial grass to it but we soon realised this was not only uneconomic, but also too time-consuming, as the project had to be completed overnight. So a new method was devised which would have a small impact on the install costs but provide a very fast and simple, way to fix the grass without touching the steps.
At end of each summer the artificial grass is finally removed leaving no trace as promised.
For this commercial flooring project we were first approached with an enquiry to supply 2200 sqm of our Blue Meadow Twist artificial grass which was available on stock and shipped by airfreight the following day direct from Heathrow to Singapore.
Once the customer received the artificial grass we were contacted again with the simple question…. Can you install this for us? ….and installed before the ship leave dry dock in 7 days. Not wanting to turn down the challenge we sent five of our best installers overnight to Singapore where they could get the installation underway.
The installation was done whilst the ship was in dry-dock in the North of Singapore and working in conditions ranging from fierce sunshine to monsoon rain the job was complete in four days working whenever the weather allowed.
Our unique fixing system allows for a permanent 100% fixing to the painted ship deck, but allows for easy removal when the ship comes back for a re-fit some years in the future. This system removes the need of messy water/media blasting to remove the adhesive from the deck as with conventional fixing systems.
Pub beer gardens are becoming more and more popular especially after the introduction of the smoking ban. Evergreens are specialists in the area of commercial artificial lawn areas from pub beer gardens, communal estate lawns to exclusive roof garden clubs in various city’s across the UK.

Why not transform that unused space on the roof, courtyard or even dark corner in the office into a staff chill out area. With the introduction of a chill out area companies have seen a number of benefits which include staff staying onsite during lunch brakes, a space for staff to unwind during the day and inject a fun atmosphere where people can meet for business or leisure.
Chill out areas can be installed indoors or out from roof space being converted into a fun clean area to old concrete courtyards or even transform the complete office space into a garden themed environment.
We have a range of products that range from simple green to bright pink grass or as in this project here to include games including tennis, running tracks or football for example.
Over the years we have transformed a number of worn muddy grass area in the UK’s premier theme and holiday parks, from Alton Towers to Legoland and Butlins to Centre Parcs. Many of the UK’s theme parks close during the winter season and this is the time to get the park ready for a busy season. This includes replacing muddy grass areas around play equipment to lawn areas around park hotels or chalets.
With our experience in this area we can provide a full including replacing play area surfaces with bright exciting artificial grass which can confirm to critical fall heights in playground environments, along with providing our custom inlay service enabling a themed floor which can include road designs, park logos or generic children’s games like hopscotch.

Our range of artificial grasses are ideally suited for commercial flooring indoor or out, available in a large range of colours and textures. With our unique cutting service we are able to customize any piece of grass with brand logos, or patterns to provide an eye catching flooring that stands out from the crowd.
For this commercial flooring project our Northern Island office installed the outdoor areas to provide Ikea a clean garden area to display their range of outdoor furniture. Once complete further areas inside the store were added to make the garden range of products for sale stand out in the busy collection warehouse area.
For temporary displays the artificial grass can be backed then have anti trip bevel edges fitted to provide a simple roll out solution which required no taping down in most cases and can be re-used on multiple occasions ideal for a product roadshow.
