Our unique thatching fibre which is carefully tufted into the base, together with a rubber infill dispersed throughout the artificial grass gives our synthetic grass a springy, natural feel which will last for years.
Our grass looks good, is suitable for pets, is lead free and will not irritate allergies. Home owners can also choose from 5 different varieties.
Australian Outdoor Living's reliable range of artificial grass are 100% Australian Made and are endorsed by the Australian Made campaign, meaning our product has been researched, designed and manufactured in Australia for our specific conditions.
Our artificial lawn is designed with a unique thatching fibre tufted into the base and when installed, we include a specially developed rubber infill which is defibrillated through the whole sub-surface area so that it replicates the springy and supportive characteristics of real natural grass or lawn. This ensures it keeps its shape and tolerates heavy traffic areas while remaining soft and lush underfoot.
However, an issue many Australians overlook when selecting Artificial Grass, is its durability to handle our harsh Australian UV.
We only recommend and install artificial lawn endorsed by the Australian Made Campaign and this is very, very important…
100% Australian Made for a Reason (or 7!)
Being Australian manufactured and endorsed means that it is researched and produced with the harsh Australian climate in mind, and it means Australian jobs were created to manufacture it too.
Australian Outdoor Living is the only Company whose entire artificial lawn product range is certified and endorsed and they are 100% exclusive to us in WA, SA."
Did you know our Sun has arguably the harshest UV in the world; harsher than America, Europe, Asia and China, where most artificial lawn/grass products come from. UV is the single greatest threat to artificial lawn, and if yours is not properly protected, you risk the bristles disintegrating and you risk the lawn/grass changing colour and fading over time. What looks like real lawn today, in a couple of years it may look like something completely different? It’s for this reason that your artificial lawn/grass must last the test of time, so we back our range with a 10 year limited product guarantee, and has a life expectancy of up to 20+ years.
Australian Outdoor Living offer a free design, measure and quoting service, and we have design consultants available to come to you anywhere at anytime.
Step 1 - Dig Out
The area to be dug out to approximately 100mm (dependent on soil and lawn type) in preparation for special base material. This process may be completed by hand, or may require the expertise of a “Dingo” Operator.
In order to maintain your guarantee, and maximise the life expectancy of your lawn, we recommend one of our professional installer to lay and complete your project. However, with a little elbow grease, you can certainly save substantial money by carrying out some of the basic preparation and dig work yourself. Ask your design consultant for instructions.
Step 2 - Levelling
Area is to be completely levelled in preparation for base materials
Step 3 - Spread and Levelling of Base
New base works to be spread across entire area, levelled, screeded and dampen in preparation for compacting.
Step 4 - Compacting
All base materials are to be machine compacted or “whacker Packed” to ensure foundation integrity. All edging is hand packed for additional support and strength.
Step 5 - Roll, trim & Join
All turf is then rolled out across the entire area, being careful to ensure the direction of the lawn is facing the same direction. Each sheet is strategically positioned to minimise join points, and trimmed to size. Each join is reinforced with a unique rubber strap to ensure no movement. We also pin the lawn if the need arises.
Step 6 - Defibrillation
Australian Outdoor Living has developed a unique machine defibrillation process to ensure the lawn pile is raised and consistent throughout the entire area. Critical to making your lawn look perfectly manicured.
Step 7 - Edging
All edges are hand scribed and edged to get that natural look to existing edging
Step 8 - Infill
Approximately 7 kg/m2 of fine sand and 3 kg/m2 of recycle granulated rubber is spread evenly across the entire lawn. It is brushed by hand to ensure an even lay and once again defribrillated by machine to finish. The infill will naturally spread with weather and traffic. This process ensures the lawn keeps its stamina and enables the grass blades to tolerate heavy traffic while remaining lush and soft underfoot.
Step 9 - Clean & Sweep
Our professional installers provide a final once over inspection, sweep the area for loose sand and granulated rubber, ensuring nothing but a perfectly manicured lawn is left behind.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?
Normal everyday traffic can cause the lawn pile to ‘flatten’. This can be brushed back up simply using a stiff bristled outdoor broom against the pile direction.
