Child Friendly Garden Transformation

Today was another really fabulous transformation process as you can see from the photo’s below – Mr & Mrs Neilsen contacted us for some advice on how to make their back garden useable yet aesthetically pleasing and safe for their now toddling little girl. The photograph below shows how the garden looked before we started….


The garden has a lovely decked area, perfect for enjoying those balmy summers evenings barbecuing with friends – and when they first did their garden and utilised the decorative stones looked quite stunning in stark contrast to the rest of the garden but over time the stones get displaced and dirty and the whole garden starts to look somewhat messy.

Mr Neilsen works offshore for long spells at a time and has very little time to tend his garden. Mrs Neilsen has her hands full looking after their young daughter so has little time to tend the garden either. They wanted a garden which was still of a low maintenance nature yet safe for their daughter to play in. We were asked if we could cover the existing area with our artificial grass – which of course we could and the rest is merely history – the photo below shows the transformation and really makes this garden stand out. Ultra low maintenance, child friendly and aesthetically pleasing – that’s what we would definitely term as a truly Unreal Garden….

Artificial Grass Patio Makeover

As promised the details on what was once an uninspiring, badly drained patio, aka algae farm!!!


We decided to overcome the drainage issue by finding out why it wouldn’t drain in the first place….The reason? Four inches of solid concrete as a base for the patio


We punched through the concrete to create some natural soak aways and then filled in the blanks with some freely draining sharp sand screed…


The wonderfully versatile MultiEdge & EasiFrame was assembled and secured to the patio which helps to contain and separate the Artificial Grass from a beautifully contrasting slate border.


What a difference a little imagination and determination can make – this outdoor space is now a wonderful outdoor room which can be great for entertaining or a little quiet time, and believe us – it’s one helluva sun trap!!!


Could your patio benefit from an Unreal Gardens breath of life? Why not contact us to see what we could do for you?

We’re Getting About A Bit These Days….

Well one of this weeks Garden Transformations saw us venture to Hatfield, Hertfordshire to the rescue of another young family who have recently been investing in the garden to create their own dream Garden.

The Coughlan’s had already spent considerable amounts of money on a rather lovely climbing frame for the children along with some rather fabulous specimen topiary bushes and plants as well as having a beautiful deck patio area built which is perfect for entertaining. Mrs Coughlan knew exactly what she wanted in her garden and has what some would say, the unfortunate desire to settle for nothing but exactly what she wants….

The picture below shows where they had got to with their garden before we were asked for our input….


Although quite a small, urban garden – Mr & Mrs Coughlan had managed to make the space very appealing and usable for all the family and on entering their home you couldn’t help but feel they had achieved what most people are trying to do following the plethora of TV gardening shows of creating an outdoor ‘room’ or taking the indoors, out.

The original playground area was covered with bark chip, which is great for a while but soon becomes very messy and unpleasant with the material scattering and becoming very dirty not to mention needing continually topping up. Mrs Coughlan had searched the Artificial Grass market and had found the grass she wanted which had the right texture and appearance but due to several circumstances beyond her control, couldn’t get the grass she wanted in time to enjoy her garden for the summer. Cue John and the Unreal Gardens crew….

As we are completely independent and not tied to any franchise or singular manufacturer/ importer or distributor of Artificial Grass, we are able to source practically any grass our customers require and usually at the right price due to the volumes we procure. We currently use around 15 varieties of Artificial Grass in our range each differing in some way from another. Just as you would find in a carpet retailer, we have swatches and samples of a wide range of grasses for our customers to come and touch and feel to make an informed choice that the grass we supply is the grass they want…

We managed to source a grass which was a match to Mrs Coughlan’s requirements and scheduled an installation at our earliest convenience and the below image shows the result of what was achieved after a long, long day of hard work and perseverance….


This grass is quite simply stunning and suits any garden large or small for the customer looking to achieve a realistic yet luxurious grass. We also installed our fantastic range of Artificial Grass Aluminium Edging which really sets the garden off and creates a real defining edge to the borders. We truly think this is one stunning garden and Mrs Coughlan promised a video of the garden when it was finished…. Watch this space as they say.

Watch out for our next post on a patio transformation we will carry out later today and let us know if you’d like us to give your patio a new lease of life in the Unreal sense of the word….

Busy, busy, busy….

A real road trip this week has turned out to be – started out with a front garden to transform in New Waltham, Grimsby for a friend of a previous customer of ours. Despite losing one of our installers to a mysterious stomach bug which saw John dropping him at Princess Diana A&E, Grimsby, we managed to strip and transform the front lawn much to our customers delight in the day with just two of us.

Next, we headed out to Hull to make another couples garden a little, shall we say, different….

Mr Jackson called to ask if it was possible to give him a lawn instead of his block paved back garden….without creating a complete mess!!!! – ‘Course we can’ says John, ‘We aren’t called Unreal Gardens for ‘nowt yer know’

A week or so later we were in Hedon which is a village just out of Hull city centre completely transforming a dull back yard.

Mr Jackson had already built a decked area outside his patio, and we then came to his aid and fitted grass and a slate border to add the finishing touches and what a difference it made – we’ll post pictures to tomorrow as we’ve another transformation to do before we can download all the pictures….

After Hull we were due to land in South Kirkby, another village near Rotherham to the rescue of Mrs Eades who has a Passion for breeding Maltese dogs. Much as she loves showing her dogs, Mrs Eades couldn’t really enjoy a garden as dogs inherently ruin real grass. Mrs Eades decided on our Finesse range of grass and managed to convince her husband to have the front garden done at the same time which was great for us. Another stunning transformation if we say so ourselves, again pictures to follow tomorrow…

With South Kirkby done we checked in at The Rock Hotel, Halifax ready for the final leg of this weeks tour de grass…

Check back tomorrow for more updates on how we progress…..
