Easi-Mow: The World’s First Artificial Grass Trimmer

April Fools 2019

Easi-mow, the world’s first artificial grass trimmer

Keep your award-winning Easigrass lawn in immaculate condition with the world’s first artificial grass trimmer, Easi-Mow. It is estimated artificial grass lawns expanded on average 10mm in last summer’s record-breaking heat wave – and with temperatures expected to reach record numbers in 2019 – Easigrass has announced the launch of the world’s first synthetic grass trimmer.

Designed to keep your blades upright and the perfect size and shape, the Easi-Mow is on sale to UK Easigrass customers from 1 April 2019. Easily stored and weather resistant, the Easi-Mow battery operated machine is programmed to detect any expansion in grass blades and use precision cutting blades to keep it trim.

Easi-Mow have been developed to ensure the most accurate cut available of any machines, however, is not suitable for natural grass lawns. It is recommended customers cut their artificial grass lawn with Easi-Mow twice a year.

“We had a large number of calls from artificial grass customers in the last year who have reported an unprecedented growth spurt in their lawns, particularly in the warmer southern counties,” explained Easigrass managing director, Anthony Gallagher. “The heatwave last summer, combined with the subsequent heavy rainfall this winter, has caused an expansion in the turf fibres greater than we have ever seen – some lawns by more than 10mm. Usually any expansion in the grass cannot be seen by the naked eye. Obviously with the prospect of a warming climate, we had to design a machine that would ensure grass fibres maintained their look, texture and stability. We’re really excited about the launch of the Easi-Mow – another award-winning design from the Easigrass team.”

Please note conventional lawn mowers will cause serious damage to synthetic grass lawns.

Winter land: choose year-round garden perfection with Easigrass artificial grass

winter garden problems

Autumn passes and winter begins. The nights are drawing in, the leaves have fallen from the trees and gardens across the UK turn into messy, muddy, slippery, barely useable spaces until spring. Dark, cold, damp months present an ongoing struggle for parents and pet owners to keep their home free of muddy garden footprints and paws, while garden-lovers battle the elements to keep grass well drained, aerated and weeds and moss at bay. Extreme weather patterns will probably mean frost and snow will be on the way too to discolour and weaken those natural grass blades even further.

It all sounds pretty gloomy. But winter doesn’t have to be a no-go for your garden lawn. In fact, pre-spring months offer the perfect time to consider an outdoor space re-design, such as opting for a year-round Easi-to-maintain solution. All those winter garden blues can be instantly banished and transformed into permanently lush greens when you opt for a quality, durable year-round artificial grass lawn surface from the Easigrass multi award-winning grass range.

Easigrass MD award for outstanding contribution to charity

wppf winner 2018 anthony gallagher

Easigrass managing director, Anthony Gallagher, has been presented with a World Peace and Prosperity Foundation (WPPF) Award in recognition of his contributions to charities that help to improve the lives of disadvantaged people and societies. Anthony said he was honoured and delighted to collect the award at the 2018 WPPF reception and dinner held at The House of Lords, London on 7 November.

The annual award ceremony was first launched in 2012 to recognise distinguished persons and contributors, nationally and internationally, who “give exceptional services” in bettering the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged people. WPPF founders, Prince Mohsin Ali Khan and Councillor Frances Stainton, said Anthony was “unanimously” selected by the board as an award winner, particularly noting his recent work to support the creation of an outdoor space for the Salvation Army Community Centre in Hoxton, London.

Anthony has always strived to support good and worthy causes where Easigrass products can really help to make a positive difference in the lives of vulnerable people. As a long-term supporter and admirer of the charity fundraising and work by The Worshipful Company of Horners, Anthony is a main contributor to a new project supported by the association’s Master, Gordon Warwick Haines MBE.

The Worshipful Company of Horners Master’s Charity Appeal was launched in early 2018 to raise funds and products to renovate the roof space of the Salvation Army Community Centre in Hoxton, London. The aim is to completely transform the large roof space into a multi-use safe space with access lifts for vulnerable people, including elderly, those suffering from early onset dementia and others struggling with a range of physical and psychological needs.

Anthony has committed to provide the grass design and installation service at cost price. This includes surfaces for sports, such as football, tennis and basketball; wheelchair friendly and safe sensory garden space for those with special mental and physical needs; as well a reading and relaxation area.

Anthony and his Easigrass team offer many years of experience in transforming rooftop spaces, as well as the top-of the range product technology to ensure the new roof-top well-being space will help to provide positive support to Hoxton’s community.

Anthony said: “I’m absolutely delighted and honoured to receive an award for our contribution to charities and special causes. What could be better? We always have to help others who are less fortunate than ourselves when we can. Easigrass would like to donate on an annual basis to the Salvation Army via the Worshipful Company of the Horners for their great work in communities throughout the UK that are handled by their amazing staff.”

Ibiza Rocks Hotel Spain

Easigrass Ibiza Rocks The Party

Easigrass brought a touch of grass to the party at Ibiza Rocks Hotel, one of the Balearic Islands’ most famous poolside live music venues. More than 700m2 of Easi-Knightsbridge grass was installed around the pool, throughout the VIP lounge and balcony areas of the iconic hotel music venue, which attracts some of the world’s most popular music acts to its stage.

The Easigrass Ibiza team had to complete renovations in outdoor areas in three stages, to fit round the work being carried out throughout the hotel as part of extensive refurbishment project. The final grass area install was completed in June 2018, in time for the grand opening of the Ibiza Rock Hotel popular summer pool party season.

“Initially it was only going to be the VIP area and the upstairs arena, but as they liked it so much, they decided to increase the area poolside,”

said Andy Edwards of Easigrass Ibiza. “The first area we did was the VIP pool area, followed by the upstairs balcony arena a few weeks later, then finally the large area directly in front of the pool. The grass used was Knightsbridge, as it’s a great looking grass and fairly robust and at a very economical price.”

Easigrass Ibiza started in 2013, and has since completed more than 300 installations on the island, from high-end villas, football pitches, bars, restaurants, clubs and children’s playgrounds, to family gardens. Across the world, Easigrass specialises in bespoke design and service, from large commercial projects to small garden areas.

Artificial grass is extremely versatile in terms of application and can be used to transform any indoor or outdoor space in any climate. The Easigrass UV-stabilised range of grass can be fitted on any concrete, tarmac or decking surface.
