LOL. Thought they were real plants. Astro turf is a brilliant Idea. Let me know if you come across anywhere you can buy a square meter. will look for some myself and will let you know if I'm successful. I'm all for using other peoples (good) ideas. ~fn-hdbng

Found it straight away. Never thought about it or realised it was that easily available to buy in smaller amounts.

If I ordered 4m of it (min order) maybe it could be shared out?

I will take a spin to my local Lidl now, if they don't have any then I'll order 4M online. You would be welcome to half which would be about £12 but don't feel obligated as I would need to buy that much (min order size) anyway. Update you soon on.

Just went to lidl and got 2 square meters for £6.99. Thanks Rom. ~fn-hdbng
Typical that Tim. I pinch your idea and your local store had sold out.
There was one left in our local store after I bought mine. I could take a look tomorrow maybe to see if it's not sold (it wasn't easy to spot) and if it's not I could post to you?
I want you to have some as I got the idea from you.
Let me know if you want me to have a look for you, shouldn't cost much for postage.

Just to clarify: It is more of a green outdoor mat than artificial grass. It says 'Artificial Grass Mat' on the label but is definitely not grass like in texture.
