I am super pleased. Lance has come out and cleaned and maintained all the grass and it now looks as amazing as when he laid it . He is even going to give me a package to keep it super hygienically clean which is something I really need being a childminder. Very happy . The grass is the best thing I have ever had put down it looks amazing More...

5 October 2018

having suffered our garden being wet and muddy and our grandchildren being unable to play outside for most of the year, we decided to bite the bullet and to give the garden a significant makeover. We contacted a number of companies who came and gave us quotes all of which we considered excessive, then we contacted Lance at gorilla grass, who came out quickly and gave us a fair price, and also advice on how to improve the layout of our garden, he also seemed the most knowledgeable of all the companies we had quotes from. The team arrived on time, worked very efficiently and the end result was excellent, and a year on it is still the best decision we have ever made, and can highly recommend Lance and his team to do a great job at a fair price More...

Very happy with the service supplied by Gorilla Grass. The back garden has been transformed with the artificial turf and my sons love spending time out there in all weathers - it's like having another room in the house. The quote was very competitive and was very professionally laid and the grass is of an exceptional standard. Would definitely recommend Gorilla Grass to anyone and we have already done so with many of our neighbours. More...

Absolutely outstanding quality grass and work. It looks perfect. It was quickly installed and with excellent customer service. It has transformed our garden. It is March and the children are running around outside in their socks and there is no mess or dirt in the house. It has brought the garden into play all year around. The dog also loves his new garden and it is easy to keep clean. Absolutely love our new grass. One of the best decisions we have made. I would highly recommend. Thanks Lance and Team.

I needed some fake grass to complete my garden project. I looked around a number of companies in the local area. All to be given prices which I considered to be a bit extreme. I was right, I got the same great product (if not better) installed for almost half the price. My dog was unsure of it at first but he soon got used to it. Great speed on delivery and reasonable prices on installing it also. Very pleased all round. Thank you Gorilla Grass! More...

Been meaning to do this but gorilla grass did our back lawn a few weeks ago and it is amazing! It has transformed our garden from a horrible bog to a beautiful lawn that the kids and dog love! It looks great and is amazingly functional! They were the most competitively priced but the grass is still great quality, already saving up for the front lawn! More...

We had our front lawn done with Gorilla Grass last year and have just had our back garden done too. As always, exceptional service and craftsmanship from the boys and more importantly the grass is of high quality too. I'm not an easy person to please as I'm so fussy, so the above says it all really. If you look online for cheaper grass you'll get it but it will be cheap grass from China. Remember folks.....you get what you pay for. If anyone wants to visit with Lance to view his work feel free! A massive thank you to Lance and Josh. Top bloke is Lance� More...

Q&A

If you decide to convert a garage into a separate house or room you will, then be required to submit planning permission possibly, no matter what work is involved. We advise that you ... Areas where there may be a planning condition, Article 4 Direction or other restriction that limits permitted development rights.
Building Regulations: Flooring | Garage conversion | Planning Portal

Step 1: Carry out an assessment of your garage and decide how you can utilise the space. If it’s currently used to store large items, you may have to consider dedicating a section of your garage towards the storage of these items or relocate them to an outbuilding such as a lock-secured garden shed.

Research recommended contractors nearby and gather several quotes for the work. Note, if there is any electrical, gas or plumbing work to be carried out, ensure that the contractor is registered with the correct governing body and they are able to certify their work.

Step 2: All planning and building regulations and requirements will need to be considered. You may need planning permission from your local authority if the work involves converting your garage into a habitable space. If you have any doubt about gaining planning permission or meeting building regulation requirements, always ask your local authority, who will direct you.

Where possible, ask for written confirmation of any advice provided by your local authority so that you can ensure that you have the correct permissions to carry out your conversion.

Step 3: Obtain a written contract from your contractor/builder/garage conversion company which clearly states everyone’s responsibilities and what you need to pay on completion of the project.

Step 4: Once the contract is in place and you have all permission approved you can start by clearing out the garage space. If you’re expanding an existing room such as a kitchen, then now would be the ideal time to knock-through the wall. Once the debris has been cleared, you can commence with any electrical works and pipe work installations for gas and plumbing.

Hint: if the space will be used as a guest room or a playroom, you may want to consider under-floor heating.

Step 5: It’s highly likely that a garage conversion will involve the installation of at least one new external cavity wall and this stage of the conversion would be an ideal time to do so. Diligence must be taken to ensure that the wall is of sound build and is able to repel moisture from the ground (damp proofing) and also resist the outside elements.

Any new windows and doors can also be installed at this stage followed by any radiators and kitchen or bathroom units.

Step 6: Now that the majority of the building works have completed, you can begin to decorate your new space. To avoid any stains or damage to your new flooring, it may be best to get painting before the floor or carpet is laid.

Step 7: Once you’ve decorated your newly converted garage, you and your family can begin to reap the benefits of the additional space in your home!

Lance-scapes is a family run business that has been trading for over 25 years. The company was founded and set up by Lance Moran in South Wales. Lance trained in City & Guilds advanced craft in brickwork giving him a good footing in the building industry in both the boom and bust days of the 1980s. After venturing out of his apprenticeship, with the famous George Wimpey at the tender age of 21, Lance decided to take on his first project with the 150k Lloyds TSB building at Cleppa Park, as well as the new WDA office at Pentrebach Merthyr. By the age of 24 Lance was a fully qualified contractor for Charter Housing and Newport Borough Councils carrying out maintenance works etc, including refurbishing the Civic Centre offices.



Lance-scapes reputation and experience over the last 25 years has seen the company expand across the South Wales region as well as the South West of England. The company pride themselves on excellent product and customer service. All projects are carried out by Lance-scapes team of fully qualified professionals.



The company are one of the first in the UK to import artificial residential grass to homes in South Wales. Artificial grass can be set anywhere, which means even the most barren land can be converted into a fresh green oasis. This artificial grass is safe for both children and pets. It has several advantages over natural grass, over and above being maintenance free. These advantages are:



No need for any watering or pruning. Your artificial grass is as beautiful on the first day as it is months down the line.
There won’t be any mess created during the raining season, so no mud strewn all over your home after taking a stroll outside.
It doesn’t need to be replaced for a long time.
You don’t have to worry about insects, pests, mold, mosquitoes breeding, moisture and fungal growth leading to allergies, etc., as artificial grass will not allow moisture to set in. So the health of everyone in your family is perfectly safe at all times!


If you have an outdoor space that is lying barren, or even a balcony space that you would like to infuse with a patch of greenery, artificial grass would be just perfect for you. Contact the team at Lance-scapes today and let them help you discuss options for your outdoor space.

Are personal assurances are always their but full warranties are available ,we always give you a full quote in writing all our grass product have warranties as well ,Although the gorilla artificial grass products are what we think are the best and most reliable,Most building work is normally done through local authority in house inspectors to give you piece of mind,on extensions etc so no problem their

What do we love most about our job ,making something from nothing i suppose and watch it develop as quickly as possible ,we gain a lot of satisfaction from what we achieve and always strive to do it better,i think we have a great source of experience to offer our customer base and we strive to retain nearly all of our customers which is a credit to ourselves over the last 30 years,so we are still enjoying our work still.

The madness in me some would say ,but more the want of a better life and to live life and not just exist and live to work but to work to live if that makes any sense, but obviously the need to get my own way and do things in the correct manner and achieve goals within the industry, in order to get a great reaction from a happy client which enables me to get that fuzzy feeling.

Very experienced and very easy to work with and flexible is my middle name lol.
