Bob Hawke keeps grass green on his roof
Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke recently installed a no-water, no-mow synthetic lawn and putting green on the roof of his five-storey house in Northbridge.

Mr Hawke decided to optimise his roof space for pleasure and relaxation by practicing golf at home whilst overlooking Middle Harbour. He opted for a 60 square metre Pro-tech putting green and 60 square metre Eco Logical lawn.

“Since I've had the Pro-tech putting green on the roof, it's been marvellous fun and it's certainly improved my putting,” Mr Hawke said.

The high quality synthetic putting greens have also been installed for champion golfers including Peter O’Malley, Nick O’Hern and Wayne Grady. The synthetic greens play as true as a championship green, yet require no maintenance or watering.

The Eco Logical synthetic lawn system is based on a unique European concept, brought to Australia by Pro-tech Corp, which uses the process of ‘fibrillation’ to split the fibres and give the lawn a grass-like look and feel.

As part of the lawn system, Pro-tech has developed a water capturing system which people can choose to install beneath the Eco Logical lawn. It makes the collection of fresh rain water easy with the help of a sub-turf membrane or water run-off matt which collects the water and stores it in a subterranean water tank. The modular tank, which can sit beneath or adjacent to the lawn, can then have its water pumped to a garden tap.
