Artificial Grass Enhances Jersey Shore Restaurant’s Outdoor Dining

Project Details

Sector: Commercial

Location: Sea Isle City, NJ

Critical Products: Artificial Grass

About the project

In 2020, O’Donnell’s Pour House expanded its outdoor dining area to include a large artificial grass “green.” Known as Paddy’s Green, the new green space complements the restaurant’s current side patio and indoor restaurant.

Paddy’s Green was developed in the Spring of 2020 when social distancing guidelines were in full effect at the Jersey Shore. The restaurant owner wanted to expand its outdoor space without sacrificing aesthetics; it was important that Paddy’s Green would be relaxed but refined. It was also critical that the space would be easy to maintain and able to sustain the wear and tear from summer crowds.

Artificial Grass Creates Premier Outdoor Dining Space

The restaurant owner selected ShawGrass’s Artificial Turf in Bermuda Green-Olive. This premier synthetic turf has a track record of success for commercial properties including restaurants and entertainment venues. The two-tone thatch and blade combination make this artificial grass closely resemble “real turf.”

After the site was cleared and graded, a local contractor installed a layer of geotextile fabric. The geotextile fabric was followed by a layer of DGA (crushed concrete) and then fine gravel. A local turf installer graded the site again to control drainage.

A total of 5,820 Square Feet of Bermuda Green-Olive was installed at the outdoor extension. Sand was the fill material for this project.
