Give your garden the WOW factor with PST Lawns

Published

on

Artificial grass is becoming more and more popular with homeowners all over Ireland as a low maintenance alternative to a natural grass lawn. Gardens are not just seen as an outdoor area anymore, but as an extension of your total living space. It’s like having another room in the house!

Kieran Donaghy here from PST Lawns, Ireland’s leading supplier of premium artificial grass. For over 12 years we've been supplying top quality artificial grass to homeowners and landscapers nationwide.

We have a brand-new warehouse in Monavalley, Tralee fully stocked with a wide range of the highest quality artificial grass products designed specifically for landscaping. Grass types range from 25mm to 40mm pile height to create an instant low maintenance lawn. Here are a few frequently asked questions I get asked...

Is artificial grass safe for children?

Absolutely, kids love it! Our grass provides a clean and safe area for your kids to play all year round. For extra peace of mind, you can install shock pad foam underlay underneath to provide additional shock absorbency and give kids that extra little bit of protection.

Is artificial grass easy to install?

The great thing about our artificial grass is that it can be laid over pretty much any surface and it’s very easy to install. Installing the artificial grass yourself is a great way of saving money, and if you have basic DIY skills it’s very straightforward.

We’ll send you our step-by-step installation guide to take you through every part of the process and our team are always on hand to offer any advice. PST Lawns stock everything you’ll need to install the artificial grass including glue and seam tape, shock pad foam underlay and high-grade silica sand.

Can it be put down on concrete?

No problem, it can easily be laid over concrete and completely transform the look of your outside space.

Is it safe for my dog?

It’s perfect for pets, and with the added bonus of NO muddy paws! When cleaning up after your pet it’s just like any other grass area, large particles will have to be scooped up, but any other particles will wash away in the rain.

How wide are the rolls?

Our artificial grass comes in either 2m or 4m rolls with each roll length being 25mm. Grass is cut to order to your exact measurements, and you can collect directly from our warehouse, or we can arrange delivery, whatever suits you best.

How do you stick it down?

A layer of sand brushed on top will weigh the grass down and keep it in place. The sand infill also helps the grass fibres stand upright for longer, extending the lifespan of your new lawn. When installing onto concrete or tarmac you can also glue the grass down as well as to edging etc.

Is it easy to keep clean?

Regular brushing will keep your artificial grass looking its best, removing any leaves and debris and keeps the fibres standing upright.

What is the lead time?

Usually five to 10 working days, depending on where you live in the country.

How long does it last?

With proper maintenance our artificial grass products will last 15 to 20 years.

The family of a much-loved Killarney woman who passed away from cancer almost a year ago plan to run a marathon past her favourite local landmarks in her memory.

Linda Eviston died on October 10 last after a long battle with cancer.

Her husband Patrick and son Erik, with the support of her daughter Alannah, will run a 42.2km course, on the day before her anniversary to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.

The route will be based on landmarks that were an important part of Linda’s life. Starting from the family home in Dromkerry, before heading for the town centre and passing the Eviston House Hotel, Linda’s grandmother’s home at Park Road, Linda’s childhood home and national school in Glenflesk, Loreto where Linda attended secondary school, back to Killarney and finishing at Linda’s pride and joy – Brook Lodge Hotel.

“It is tough but we wanted to do something in Linda’s memory and help other people who might find themselves in similar circumstances,” Pat told the Killarney Advertiser. “We originally hoped to do the Dublin City Marathon but that got cancelled. This route is much better, but much tougher as it’s more hilly.”

All proceeds will be donated to the Irish Cancer Society and donations can be made via: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/inhonouroflinda.

It really was girl power at its finest – as 170 women of all ages braved the elements on Sunday to bare all for charity at the weekend.

Shore Acre in Camp was the location which was only revealed to the participants for Kerry’s first ever ‘Dip in the Nip’. And amongst the all female grouping were some Killarney ladies who joined in the empowering adventure for what was described as “a special and unforgettable morning” all in aid of Recovery Haven Kerry.

According to Marisa Reidy from Recovery Haven, the women were of all ages and all walks of life who came together for so many personal reasons.

“Some were still on their own cancer journey, some were celebrating coming out the other side and of course, many were there to honour friends and loved ones who they had lost to cancer, but we were all equal on the day – flaws and all,” Marisa, who also took part in the event, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was a truly uplifting and exhilarating experience and we are so, so grateful to each and every lady who joined us for a morning we will never forget. One woman described it as ‘companionship among strangers’ and that really sums it up perfectly. It was emotional, there were some tears, but lots of laughter and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. When the ladies hit the water, they all formed a circle and held hands in a gesture that was totally unplanned – it just happened organically and it was quite overwhelming.”

She added that a very special mention has to be made to Michaela and John Edwards and their team from Wild Water Adventures for their support and expertise in ensuring no stone was left unturned in making it a fabulous, safe event.

“It was an all-female team from beginning to end, from our own volunteers, stewards, registration, Gardai, teas and coffees, lifeguards, sea rescue – girl power at its finest! Now all that’s left to do is start planning for 2022!”

Donations are still being taken via the link on the Recovery Haven Kerry Facebook page.

“So far we are close on €9,000 which is just fabulous.”
