Urban Upgrade in Merivale


Urban Upgrade in Merivale

For Cindy and Marc Mendonca of Merivale, the decision to invest in an artificial lawn for their townhouse was not taken lightly. They had wanted to create a garden space that served many purposes, all-year-round.

What do you do with a small backyard, a dog and a desire to create an entertaining space?

The challenge

Marc and Cindy’s section is only 10m wide and the existing landscape contributed to a cramped feeling in the yard that made it uninviting.

Add Alfie the labradoodle into the mix, and there were brown spots on the lawn and muddy paw prints being tracked over the deck and inside the house. With a dog as part of the family they knew whatever lawn they chose, it needed to be hard wearing and long-lasting.

Marc and Cindy just weren’t getting the enjoyment out of their outdoor space that they wanted. 

The solution

SmartGrass introduced Cindy to Craig Wilson of Form Garden Architecture to help design a new landscape that made the most out of the small outdoor living space. To create the illusion of more space, the new design included remodelling the garden edging to expand the lawn and make it more inviting. Thanks to the low maintenance, dog-friendliness and durability of SmartGrass, this is a benefit that will last well beyond the summer months.
