Meet the Installers – Discover Landscape & His Dog
Namgrass has a nationwide network of the UK’s leading artificial grass installers; their precision and attention to detail are what sets them apart from the rest. We thought we would give our customers the opportunity to get to know our artificial grass installers.
Meet Danny from Discover Landscape, a professional artificial grass installer in Teesside. Danny talks us through his daily jobs and how he uses artificial grass to transform his customer’s gardens with a little help from his dog, Dhuma.
How and when was Discover Landscape founded?
I [Danny Storey] started Discover Landscape around 4 years ago. I had a complete re-think on what I wanted to do with my career. I went from sitting on a computer, to retraining as a landscaper, which, as you could imagine, was a big difference! I retrained in landscaping for 4 years to gain the skills needed, which I bring into my job every day when installing artificial grass.

Why did you choose Namgrass as your supplier?
Is this even a question? Without a doubt, their artificial grass is by far the best on the market. There’s no comparison between them and other artificial grass brands, even though it’s artificial, it doesn’t look artificial… if you get me?
We get you Danny & thanks!
What's your favourite Namgrass product to work with?
How many artificial grass installs have you completed?
Hmm, this is a hard one as you lose track of how many artificial grass installations you complete!
Let’s just say, we’ve installed A LOT of artificial grass, but I don’t think it’s about the number, it’s always about the quality of the install that matters.
Where do you complete most of your artificial grass installs within the UK?
I live in the Teesside area in the North East of the UK, so a lot of my landscaping work is based around where I live.
Have you laid many ‘unique’ or awkward artificial grass installations?
I wouldn’t say that any of the artificial grass installs I have done are specifically unique, but I do like it when we are able to incorporate a mix of plants and natural materials into the overall job, as this helps the grass look even more natural!
The only time things can be awkward is when you’re trying to lift the grass around the back of a garden, access isn’t always the best for 4m long rolls of fake grass!
Does Dhuma like to help on-site? What’s his main role within the company?
Well, he helps in his own way!
Once we’ve trimmed off the edges of the artificial grass rolls, he likes to tidy up and run around with it. His favourite on-site task is the running test, he’s a big dog, so it has to be robust for other puppies, and he certainly makes sure it is!
His two main roles would have to be, one, being an excellent guard dog and two, being the sleep supervisor- he loves nothing more than watching us work whilst he lays in the sun!
