Artificial grass supplier LazyLawn wins patent

The technology behind LazyLawn’s product Wonder Yarn has been awarded a patent in the UK.
Wonder Yarn features a ‘W’ shaped yarn. The shape of the yarn is desigend to force the blades of grass to stand upright.
Marketing director Andy Driver said: "We are delighted to receive the exclusive rights to use this patented technology to produce our Wonder Yarn turf.
"We have spent a great deal of time working closely with our manufacturer to develop a product that looks and feels authentic, and having successfully created the most realistic artificial lawn on the market, we want to ensure others cannot copy this pioneering design.
"Wonder Yarn has been our top selling product for the last three years and its growing popularity is all down to its high quality and unique design.
"The turf’s ability to bounce back gives it added durability and realism, which is enhanced by the green and beige colour mix of the individual strands; these are made from soft, yet durable polyethylene, and are fully UV stabilised to prevent fading."
LazyLawn, which is the main brand of Evergreens UK, saw a 25 per cent increase in sales in 2013.
JD Wetherspoons, Centre Parcs and Selfridges have used the turf. LazyLawn was also the first artificial grass brand to appear at the Chelsea Flower Show and has installed the Big Brother garden for eight consecutive years.
