Hi,
Looking at the possibility of replacing our (not massive) back lawn with some form of artificial grass.
We have a dog so need to take that into consideration too.
Has anyone had an experience of this- either doing it themselves or a company that will supply and fit a pet-safe product?
Many thanks in advance!

    Whatever you do do not go for the cheapest option !

    If you want something that looks as natural as it can get look at, and handle, as many swatches as possible, if you buy cheap  you'll just get something that screams 1980s astro turf.

    I got a dozen swatches, knew which density, colour, and backing, i wanted - then got a quote from Lazylawn aswell as my usual (local) garden landscape contact.
    Both were similar in price so i chose the local company.
    They prepared and completed it in 3 or 4 days - it's a meticulous job if done well but worth every penny, in 5 years it still looks excellent.

    There are a lot of choices regarding its intended purpose so get as many swatches as possible. 



    EDIT: sorry, didn't realise this was the Northern Ireland subforum, my answer isn't specific.
    First, take responsibility .....
