Woodvale Estate Public Open Space Gets a Green Planet Grass Makeover

Artificial grass installer from Perth solves three problems for the City of Wanneroo with one synthetic grass installation.

Perth, WA, 8 October 2014 - Recently, Green Planet Grass installed their product in the City of Wanneroo at the Woodvale Estate public open space. Green Planet Grass has installed artificial grass at other locations for the City of Wanneroo and they have been satisfied with the results. Consequently, when they needed to address the public open space at Woodvale Estate, they called Green Planet Grass for a solution.

The Problem

The open space is used as a play area by local residents. It receives a heavy volume of foot traffic. This had turned the open space into a brown, barren area with more weeds than grass. Due to foot traffic and the Perth climate, it was impossible for the City of Wanneroo to maintain grass in the open space. The solution was to replace the natural lawn with a synthetic one from Green Planet Grass.

Special Conditions

Not only did the City of Wanneroo require a surface that could survive the climate in Perth, they also had two other special conditions that required attention. The first request was that the artificial grass look like natural grass so that it would blend into the natural surroundings. The second request was that the surface be protected from theft.

The Solutions

Natural Appearance

For a natural appearance, Green Planet Grass provided Saturn, one of their five different grass varieties. Saturn is made of monofilament yarn and has a light, natural green colour. It is manufactured in variable heights up to 35mm. The irregular heights mimic nature perfectly and give Saturn grass a natural, unmanicured look. In photographs, it is virtually indistinguishable from well-maintained natural grass.

Anti-Theft Edging

Green Planet Grass has an exclusive anti-theft edging that makes it exceedingly difficult to steal. Artificial grass in public areas such as parks is often stolen, either for use or as a form of vandalism. The City of Wanneroo wanted to ensure that their new artificial grass surface wouldn’t fall prey to thieves. Green Planet Grass provided the solution.

The Feedback

Justin Everley, Director of Green Planet Grass, says that the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive:

“The City of Wanneroo is very happy with their Green Planet Grass and so are the residents who use the park. We have done other installations for the city and they know our work, so this came as no surprise to anyone involved. They expect the best from Green Planet Grass and that is exactly what we give them.”

Mr Everley concluded, “We were able to turn a barren space into a beautiful new play area for residents and their children. It now requires less than a tenth of the maintenance it once required and they have a beautiful artificial grass surface that is protected from theft and looks perfect every day of the year, regardless of weather or foot traffic.”
