Imitation grass suppliers Dayco, who operate in the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and London area, have found a growing demand for fake turf in the hotel industry. The rise in the use of artificial grass over and above the natural alternative has three main benefits: it’s cleaner, requires very little maintenance and it looks good all year round. In this article Dayco, one of the leading artificial grass installers for homes and businesses, looks at six ways to use fake turf in hotels.
Hotel Grounds – The most common use for artificial grass in the hospitality industry is in hotel grounds. Whether grass is used for sweeping hotel entrances, or to ensure pristine lawns all year round for guests and visitors, it creates an excellent impression and looks superb on hotel brochures and photographs.
Our high quality turf is extremely durable, so it provides the perfect setting for special events such as weddings and conferences, as it will keep its length and lush green colour no matter how much it is used. Wedding parties in particular prefer fake turf above natural turf as the bride – and guests – won’t get their shoes dirty, even on the wettest of days. It also means photographers are free to be even more creative in their wedding shots as they don’t have to avoid wet or muddy ground.
Outdoor Dining – Imitation grass suppliers are in demand from hotels that have outdoor bars or eating areas for similar reasons. As fake grass eliminates the need for mowing, hotel owners can as imaginative as they like in garden design and can create a beautiful outdoor eating space, with shaped lawns, in the grounds, roof gardens, or on hotel restaurant balconies. It opens up the hotel as a stunning venue for corporate events, with an outdoor bar or restaurant providing added appeal. The addition of a few patio heaters means this space can be used for the majority of the year.
If you run a family-friendly hotel, another option is to use artificial grass to create a soft surface children’s play zone close to an outside dining area, so youngsters can play safely while their parents relax and enjoy their surroundings.
VIP suites – Many of the larger hotels have VIP or honeymoon suites with a balcony or roof terrace. However, a balcony with a concrete surface doesn’t look very appealing. Instead, synthetic turf brightens this space with a blast of colour and means your most prestigious guests can step out onto a soft ‘carpeted’ surface. It also makes this area more flexible as guests sunbathe on the ‘grass’ or enjoy breakfast or an evening meal in an elegant setting – on a balcony or roof terrace turfed with fake grass.
Swimming Pools and Spas – Artificial grass also benefits hotels with swimming pools and/or spas for two reasons. Hotel owners often complain that natural grass gets water-logged or fades around pools and hot tubs, which ruins the look of this space. Instead, fake turf is the perfect choice as it is self-draining, so it prevents wet slippery areas forming around the pool, and is UV resistant so it will keep its colour.
Indoor Spaces – Owners of large hotels are increasingly using fake turf in their foyers to create a jaw-dropping first impression to guests, and to ensure their hotel stands out above the rest in promotional material. Some hotels are built around an indoor courtyard area with a fountain in the centre to evoke feelings of tranquillity – the dining and bar areas are centred around the fountain to give guests the impression they are dining outdoors. Having an attractive courtyard space with fake grass are gives the hotel a distinct ‘city vibe’ and provides guests with striking views.
