How and when was Solent Garden Services founded?
We are Solent Garden Services Ltd, a family-run business established in 1973.
Originally, we were predominantly focused on garden maintenance but have evolved over the years to cover all aspects of garden design, build and maintenance.
I [Rob Woodhouse] grew up around the business but got my first real sense of the work involved when I was 15 years old, completing my school work experience within the family business. I came on board working for the company full time at the age of 21. At this point, it was just me and one other guy working on regular maintenance however landscaping and garden design was always the direction I wanted to take the business.

Why did you choose Namgrass as your supplier?
My focus is always using quality products so when we started installing artificial lawns, we were looking for only the best products to install which is where Namgrass came in.
I was really impressed with the quality and diversity within the range of Namgrass products, plus it’s a company which is local to us, so it was a no-brainer for me!
What's your favourite Namgrass product to work with?
How many artificial grass installs have you completed?
We’ve been installing Namgrass lawns for around 7 years now so let’s just say we’ve completed a lot! Namgrass is the only brand of artificial lawns I’ve ever used as it’s always been a reliable product and brand.
Where do you complete most of your artificial grass installs within the UK?
We mostly cover Hampshire but we have traveled to London for a few special installs in the past.
Have you installed some challenging artificial grass jobs?
We have just wrapped up our biggest install to date. A whopping 360sqm of Eden! That was a real challenge with over 70 tonnes of aggregate brought in for the subbase and base.
