Garden Plaza is a mixed lifestyle, residential and commercial development in Kuala Lumpur’s high tech district Cyberjaya (Malaysia). The property developer wanted to create a green outdoor area that invites the 3,000 residents to relax and rejuvenate after a long day of work or school. In cooperation with the Urban Design Group (UDG), Royal Grass® dealer Eco Outdoor Sdn Bhd transformed the place into a green haven.
UDG designed 300 one by one meter squares for the driveway wall. It was decided to cover the squares with artificial grass. UDG consulted Kuala Lumpur based Royal Grass® partner Eco Outdoor for this. The experts of Eco Outdoor suggested polystyrene for the cubes, because the grass can be easily mounted on it and it’s a durable material. For the grass Royal Grass® Silk20 was selected, a short bladed, fresh looking artificial turf used for rooftop coverings and design elements. While Silk20 still mimics the natural look Royal Grass® is famous for, its short blades make sure that the grass always looks neat and clean.
Grass that can handle a lot of traffic
Challenged by the vertical installation and the concept of green living, the architects decided to cover the central plaza with artificial grass as well. They built three pyramids covered by grass. The architects expected people to lay down and walk on the pyramids. Therefore, it was necessary to use a type of grass that can handle a lot of traffic while showing no signs of deterioration. Eco Outdoor suggested to use Royal Grass® Silk25 for the pyramids, as it does not wear off when used as a walking or playing area.
UDG and Eco Outdoor have helped the client to solve a complicated issue. Integrating Royal Grass® artificial grass in a modern designed outdoor area has resulted in a green place that pleases the eye while inviting residents to relax and play at the same time.
