For the third year in a row, Evergreens has covered the large seating steps in King’s Cross Granary Square with artificial grass.
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 should not be damaged or have anything stuck to them, had to be vandal-resistant, and had to be weather-resistant to high winds or heavy rain.
One option was to totally cover the steps with ply and then bond the synthetic grass to it, but we soon realised that this was not only uneconomic, but also too time-consuming, as the project had to be completed overnight. 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 removed, leaving no trace as promised.
For this project, we were first approached with an enquiry to supply 2200 sqm of Blue Meadow Twist to be shipped by airfreight the following day direct from Heathrow to Singapore.
Once the customer received their order, we were contacted again with the simple question…. Can you install this for us before the ship leaves in 7 days? Not wanting to turn down the challenge, we sent five of our best specialists overnight to Singapore where they could get the installation underway. We worked in conditions ranging from fierce sunshine to monsoon rain and completed the fitting in just four days whilst the ship was in dry-dock in the North of Singapore.
Our unique fixing system allows the artificial surface to be permanently attached to the painted ship deck, but allows for easy removal when the ship comes back for a re-fit in the future. In contrast to conventional fixing systems, this method removes the need of messy water blasting to remove the adhesive from the deck.
We are specialists in commercial artificial lawn areas for pub beer gardens, communal estate lawns, and exclusive roof garden clubs.
We provide a number of large pub chains, fitness clubs, and fast food restaurants with a supply, installation, and maintenance service across the UK and Europe with our dealer network.
Our projects range from installing on new builds where we can assist with technical drawings and information during the planning stage, to installing in working pubs or restaurants where an area is becoming muddy, worn out, and requiring a lot of maintenance.
We are Safe Contractor and Chas members, and all of our commercial flooring installers hold CSCS cards as a minimum, with many holding various plant licences, asbestos awareness certificates, and IPAF / PASMA cards.
Why not transform that unused space on the roof, courtyard or even dark corner in the office into a staff chillout area? Companies have seen a number of benefits through introducing a chillout area, including staff staying on-site during lunch breaks, a space for staff to unwind during the day, and a fun space where people can meet for business or leisure.
Chillout areas can be installed indoors or outdoors. Transform the office into a green garden, or convert a roof space into a fun clean area to contrast old concrete courtyards.
Our products range from simple green to bright pink grass, to surfaces which incorporate games such as tennis, running tracks or football.
Over the years, we have transformed a number of worn muddy grass areas 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 winter making it the perfect time to get the park ready for the busy summer season. This includes replacing muddy grass areas around play equipment and lawn areas around park hotels or chalets.
We can replace play area surfaces with bright, exciting, and safe surfaces. We can use custom inlay to create a themed floor which can include road designs, park logos or generic children’s games like hopscotch.
We also have a specialist golf division which can construct everything from the most complex crazy golf games to the most luxurious golf putting greens which include contours, bunkers, and multiple challenging holes.
Outdoor Ikea Displays

Our range of synthetic grasses and materials come in a large variety of colours and textures ideal for commercial flooring indoor and out. With our unique cutting service, we are able to customize any piece of grass with brand logos or patterns to provide eye-catching flooring that stands out from the crowd.
For this commercial flooring project, our Northern Ireland office provided Ikea with a clean garden area to display their range of outdoor furniture. Areas inside the store were also fitted out to make their garden range stand out in the busy warehouse area.
For temporary displays such as product roadshows, artificial grass can be backed and fitted with anti-trip bevel edges to provide a simple roll out solution, which requires no taping down so can be reused on multiple occasions.
