NewGrass Fills Need for Green “Smallscape” Landscaping

Monday, April 20th, 2009

If you thought you had to have the traditional single-family home to enjoy green space around where you live, it’s time to think again.

NewGrass®, the premier artificial grass brand for an array of typical landscaping applications, is also becoming the perfect answer to landscaping for townhomes, terraces, balconies and rooftops makeovers, says NewGrass president Greg Goehner.

“NewGrass® is proving it truly does offer the best available products for any urban landscape project,” Goehner says. “You can have a natural looking and water-saving piece of green even if you live in condo or a townhome, or if your only outdoor piece of real estate is your balcony.”

NewGrass® is 100% eco-friendly. Its blades are 100% polyethylene and lead-safe, and its backing is bio-based. It’s the artificial grass solution when being water-wise and eco-friendly are as important as having more green lawn to enjoy year-round.

With the increase in interest for NewGrass in small urban landscapes on hard surfaces, such as patios, terraces and balconies, NewGrass® has teamed with AirField Systems to offer customers AirDrain – the best choice for installing artificial turf grass on hard surfaces.

“We’ve looked for a long time for the right product to make NewGrass® drain better and look better over the long term on concrete or any other hard surface, and AirDrain is that solution,” Goehner says.

AirDrain is an innovative, ecologically sound solution for porous paving, drainage and erosion control on surfaces such as concrete. It’s a super-strong, highly versatile, lightweight and easily installed drainage system made from an environmentally friendly combination of polypropylene and polyethylene.

Another key reason NewGrass® can turn a balcony or terrace into a small green oasis is because it water drains through it at a rate of 30 inches per hour. Even wet, NewGrass® is safe for standard commercial and residential construction weight-bearing loads construction.
