Grass Is Always Green in Cyprus


At this time of year many people's thoughts turn to warmer places, perhaps recalling a great summer holiday in the sun or even looking ahead to summer 2014. The Mediterranean is a popular holiday destination for many people in Britain so we thought we would take a look at that area and its connection to artificial grass.

Cyprus - climate for Saittas
Amongst the destinations to choose from is Cyprus. With its subtropical climate, mild winters and warm to hot summers it holds great appeal. It does rain but generally that is in the winter. The main problem for the island is that summers can be arid and dry with frequent droughts - not a climate to grow and keep lovely green lawns. So if you have a holiday home or run a holiday complex on the island, what are the options for avoiding yellow, patchy grass and cracked, hard earth?

Option 1 - concrete and tile the areas immediately around the building. A low maintenance option but not really that welcoming for most people.

Option 2 - You can xeriscape your garden. Essentially you concentrate on drought resistant plants. This can be a good solution but maintenance is required and water is of course needed for the plants.

Option 3 - You can install artificial grass. Forget those worries about summer droughts and the need for maintenance. Also, the latest artificial grass carpet products are strongly resistant to UV light so will not fade or turn brittle.

Earlier this year our Lifestyle Luxe grass was installed at holiday accommodation on the island to provide a luxurious, green lawn as a compliment to the large swimming pool and its surrounding paving.



As you can see from these 2 different views, the artificial lawn holds great visual appeal and, for the accommodation owners, affords greater peace of mind when it comes to the drought season.
