The five-star resort, Fairmont Zimbali Lodge, on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast chose to install the natural looking grass Esigrass™ in the shaded areas around the pool to accommodate guests looking to relax in the confort. Easigrass is the world’s leading artificial turf brand with headquarters based in London. The South African branch of Easigrass™ forms a unique brand within Durban-based Van Dyck Carpets’ portfolio, part of PFE International Inc (Group of Companies).

When commenting on the decision to use Easigrass™, the Director of Operations for Fairmont Zimbali Resort, Evan Hamington said; “we decided to use Easigrass™ as they provided a value for money product that not only improved the overall aesthetics of our pool area, but also allowed us to create additional seating areas around the swimming pool”. Fairmount had 170m² of Easigrass™ installed – in only three days – because of its many associated benefits including longevity and minimal maintenance.
