One of the company's most unique projects has seen EFS Europe install over 750m2 of artificial grass in London's famous Grosvenor House Hotel. The product was laid within the Park Lane establishment to facilitate the hosting of an indoor summer garden party the marked the end of an £8 million renovation of the hotel's public spaces.

As one of London's most prestigious five-star hotels, the Grosvenor House needed to ensure that its plush interior remained unscathed during the installation process. EFS Europe's team therefore diligently carried in all the product by hand in small quantities, before it was laid and cut by hand to ensure a tight, clean finish. The 25m x 2m rolls were joined using a premium level Lock-Lift carpet tape to ensure stability and to leave minimal residue once removed.

In addition to the main ballroom floor, an access staircase and a mezzanine area were also covered, giving a complete garden feel to the entire event space. Once installed, the artificial grass was further complimented with a full bandstand, dummy water fountains, picket fencing, and artificial trees.

EFS Europe used a brand new range of artificial grass called 'Gaddesby', which features a 33mm pile length and a tri-coloured finish for a natural look.

The event celebrated the best of a traditional British summer, recreating the look and feel of famous events including Royal Ascot, Wimbledon, Henley, and The Chelsea Flower Show. Guests included X-Files actress Gillian Anderson and Les Miserables star Samantha Barks.

Speaking about the project, EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:

"The new Gaddesby range was perfect for this particular project. The 33mm pile length gave the quality of presentation that the Grosvenor events team was seeking to achieve, but with the ability to withstand the high footfall once the room was full of guests. The overall finish was remarkable, and was complimented by some fantastic lighting and décor."
