Trafalgar Square Pitch Install

It's not every day you have an enthusiastic audience during work, but that's exactly what happened yesterday when Blades were called to install a temporary artificial grass pitch for the Champion's League festivities in London's Trafalgar Square. The build-up to the Finals began this morning with C [...]

Video – The Royal Barge Revisited

We revisited the Royal Barge project this week when we finally got around to posting the timelapse video kindly sent to by Ben Scott.

Press – Pro Landscaper Magazine Feature

One of the exciting school projects we worked on last year was recently featured in Pro Landscaper magazine's June issue, with our work making the front cover.

Blades and “Pastoral” at Soho Theatre

  A few months ago we received an interesting request to supply artificial grass for a new production at the Soho Theatre in London. When we're not knee deep in mud and grass we're quite partial to soaking up some culture so we were only too pleased to help. The production is Pastoral, a "dark [...]

Artificial Grass London Spotlight

Artificial grass has become a really popular and practical solution for space-restricted city dwellers in recent years. Transforming precious outside areas, such roof terraces often comes complete with awkward and challenging access, and London has certainly given us more than its fair share of hea [...]

Emerging designers from top London and European design schools were teamed up with high street r [...]

The Grass Isn’t Always Green – School Play Areas

  A few weeks ago we mentioned some exciting school projects we've been busy with over summer. Well, the photos are in, and we're delighted with the results of two fantastic sensory and school play areas. The first project at Singlegate Primary was to extend the existing outdoor area, which in [...]

Blades Artificial Grass – Olympic Projects

The Olympic Games were always going to be an uplifting occasion for our country, but I don't think we were quite prepared for how much of an impact they would have. We've been brimming with pride over our athletes' achievements and in admiration of the commitment of the thousands of people and orga [...]

Blades Roll Out Red Carpet for Queen’s Jubilee

At last, we're finally able and immensely proud to tell you what we have been working on during recent months. Blades were selected to provide a backdrop of red artificial grass for the Royal Barge that will carry the Queen during the Thames Diamond Jubilee River Pageant. This artist's impression g [...]

Blades Support Sussex Wildlife Trust

Our business may be artificial but our natural world is extremely important to us, so a few months ago we began to look for a local project to support, one that we felt would restore some balance. This week we're proud to say that Blades are now fully fledged members of the Sussex Wildlife Trust. B [...]

Blades Join Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce

The first of our new year goals is now complete; we joined the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce. They're no stranger to artificial grass either. Last summer Dawn Banks designed an inspirational balcony space for the Chamber's offices in Hove and used a beautifully bold pink artificial grass. A [...]

Society of Garden Designers Exhibitors

It's been a couple of weeks since we exhibited at the Society of Garden Designers Autumn Conference at Imperial College. We were pleased with our stand - especially having never exhibited before - keen to demostrate that artificial doesn't have to mean 'fake'. We found a brilliant company called Gr [...]
