Portfolio: Artificial grass
On 11 October 2018 we (Donovan & Leon) became the first official Belgotex Grass® franchise in Centurion, Pretoria, Gauteng. We have been installing Belgotex® Duraturf™ (as it was then called) synthetic lawn since 2010, which makes us one of its oldest suppliers and installers. Do also visit our dedicated Facebook page.

We install a variety of Belgotex® artificial grass ranges for different situations, from professional and amateur sports fields, putting greens, children’s playgrounds, private and public gardens, to pool and jacuzzi surrounds. We can even turn a small balcony or a boring, tiled patio into a wonderful soft relaxing area.
So imagine a lush green lawn that ...
- You never again need to mow, water or fertilize
- ‘Grows’ anywhere – and in all seasons
- Is pet friendly, drains well, easily cleaned
- Is manufactured in South Africa
Thinking straight about synthetic lawn
Recently we have noticed a plethora of fly-by-night contractors and cheap imported products flooding the market. We are suddenly met with competitors that have no scruples, and the guarantee period counts for nothing as they will not be in business by the time the guarantee period ends.
We are suddenly being questioned about how we can charge so much for an installation, as there are people charging as low as R99/m², installed! For those people who have not done their homework and can’t do the maths, please note it is impossible to install a decent quality synthetic lawn even close to R99. This is not because we are trying to make excessive profit on our contracts, it is simply because the materials required to do a proper installation that will stand the test of time cost way more than that.
We also have other expenses that a one-man “bakkie brigade” doesn’t have. UIF, PAYE, Workmen’s Compensation, insurance on our workmanship, our vehicles, goods-in-transit, to name a few. Ask yourself, what happens if the person installing your grass has an accident with the product on their vehicle? The product you’ve paid for already... Our staff also get a higher wage than most, as their workmanship is of high quality.
We are not aiming at clients who enquire on local social pages such as “I know a Guy” – we do not want to compete with these same contractors that will not be around if something goes wrong. In fact, we have begun being the company that people turn to when disastrous artificial lawn installations have to be fixed up – unfortunately at a cost. Not all products were intended for our local conditions. We have removed disasters imported from the Far East that were installed cheaply less than two years previously.
We value competition, but we also value clients and the public who do not want to fall for these budget synthetic lawn installations, and we will be here in years to come to ensure that our service guarantee is in place. Choose a company that has been around longer than the guarantee period on the product to ensure that you are dealing with a reputable synthetic lawn installer.
