The old adage states: “The grass is always greener on the other side” – but in the case of artificial lawn, local is most definitely lekker with DuraTurf artificial lawn being produced right here in South Africa.

Belgotex Floorcoverings invested in the order of R20-million in tufting machinery at its Pietermaritzburg factory to ensure that synthetic lawns are readily available locally, but specifically engineered to withstand our harsh UV and weather conditions.

Eleven different ranges made from a unique combination of high-quality monofilament polyethylene and polypropylene yarns are available for landscaping, time-pressed homeowners and corporate or hospitality venues looking to transform dull and boring areas.

“Our climate lends itself to an outdoors lifestyle and people are extending their living spaces into what we affectionately call the “green room” such as patios, decks or entertainment areas,” commented Helen de Villiers, marketing manager at Belgotex Floorcoverings.

DuraTurf adds a touch of green to verandahs and patios, parking lots, traffic islands and forecourts for trendy outdoor areas. Its UV-resistant, durable green fibres look just like real grass with none of the mowing, weeding or watering concerns and provide a comfortable, low-maintenance surface that blurs the line between indoors and out.

Apart from the fact that it saves water and energy, the local manufacturing also gives DuraTurf a low carbon footprint. The absence of fertilizers and harmful pesticides also means less chemical pollution of the soil for a “greener” solution all year round.
