Countrywide Grounds, the professional UK grounds maintenance contractor, has joined forces with supplier of artificial grass and associated products Perfectly Green, to offer domestic and commercial customers a full range of artificial grasses for the home, gardens and businesses.
The partnership will enable Countrywide, which is part of the Dwyer Group family of brands with over 43 franchises, to provide a complete service to its customers from the preparation of the base through to the installation, maintenance and aftercare of the artificial grass. Franchisees will be able to offer an extensive range of 15 different Perfectly Green grasses, which have been specifically designed to suit schools, nurseries, urban landscapes, playgrounds, homes, gardens and public amenities.
Perfectly Green supplies grasses made from a variety of densities and superior yarn technology, each giving a different look and feel. The grasses come in a range of pile heights to suit all budgets, preferences and comfort, with some ideal for children’s play and multi-use games areas, and others more appropriate for domestic gardens and urban landscaping. All the grass products are UV resistant, durable and supplied on a well-draining latex or polyurethane backing that can be cut to any shape and size.
As well as the range of turfs for landscaping, Perfectly Green has the ‘Playtime’ range of colourful artificial grass shapes and designs, which add learning to a safe and fun environment for children to play on. Installed with any of the Perfectly Green grasses, ‘Playtime’ provides a clean and dry environment for the children all year round, as well as a non-abrasive, soft and cushioned surface, which is highly durable and requires minimal maintenance, with just the occasional brushing required.
Prior to carrying out any projects with customers, all Countrywide franchisees have had to complete the renowned Perfectly Green Academy training programme in order to learn about the extensive product range and associated products.
James Kelly, commercial director of Countrywide, comments: “Artificial grass is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to natural grass as it offers a realistic, quality lawn grass that means less work – no watering, fertilizing, or mowing – and more time to enjoy and relax in a garden that looks good all year round. Knowing which product to choose for your budget and taste can both be difficult and confusing in such a crowded market, so by partnering with Perfectly Green, we can be confident that we are providing high quality and realistic artificial grass for our customers. Their products are versatile and the most natural looking in the marketplace and can be used more or less anywhere, whether it’s for a home or garden, school playground or even a putting green for a golf course. We have a broad range of customers so we can now cater for all locations and create the look of a perfectly maintained lawn all year round.”
Gerard O’Driscoll, sales director of Perfectly Green, added: “We are delighted to join forces with Countrywide as they are a longstanding commercial groundskeeping service with many years of experience and expertise. It’s network of franchisees will provide our business with new opportunities, both geographically and through their customer base, enabling us to reach a wider audience in the domestic and commercial sectors. We have been in the artificial grass market for over a decade and pride ourselves on the standard of service – we know that Countrywide will provide an excellent installation service with their experienced, knowledgeable and helpful franchisees.”
