Case study: Private home, Cambridge

Though many of our projects focus on large scale refurbs in schools, sports clubs and public spaces, our expert team also works on a number of smaller projects, transforming private homes and gardens across the country. From providing kids with a safe, secure and stylish play area to adding a splash of colour to your outside space, artificial grass can transform your garden and give your home the wow factor you’re looking for.

To show just how much of an impact a stretch of artificial grass could have in your garden, we’re taking a closer look at one of our most recent projects. A private home in Cambridge city centre. The exterior of this property was completely transformed by the addition of a brand new artificial lawn.

The Importance of Outside Space

With many homeowners focussing their attentions on renovating the interior of their properties, outside space is often overlooked. However, your garden is incredibly important, both as a feature to enhance the outside of your property and as a place you and your family can enjoy. As @thisismoney says “A well looked after garden will give your home a welcoming and modern feel”. This can add a significant amount to the value of your home, giving you a return of up to 88% on the money you invest in your exterior renovation.

The Brief

The owners of this stunning house in the heart of Cambridge city centre wanted to completely transform their outside space. The area was to be re-landscaped, with the new space featuring fountains, ornamental sculptures, paved walkways and intricately laid flowerbeds. The centrepiece of the design was to be a circular lawned area. Bright, bold and elegant, this round bed would form the most eye-catching element of the space.

The Work

In order to make the installation of this circular lawn as convenient for the client as possible, we worked through a variety of British summertime conditions and around other contractors. As we wanted to achieve an exceptional look and realistic results, we used our highest quality artificial grass and finished the 8m wide circle off with solid oak sleepers.

The Result

Even if we do say so ourselves, the finished lawn looks truly spectacular. Bold, colourful and vibrant, the circular space brings the garden to life and makes a real feature out of this home’s outside space. In the client’s own words: “from identifying what we wanted, to talking us through options and demonstrating samples and then installation of this beautiful feature, Rob Norton and his team exceeded our very high expectations at every stage. This was real value for money. Our garden has been transformed by the integrations of natural planting and excellent advice and installation of astroturf by Artificial Grass Cambridge. The overall effect is stunning and we are simply delighted.” – Dr Jim Hever
