Does Fake Grass Installation Need To Be Done By A Professional Tradesman?
To save on costs many people decide to undergo the project themselves. Although it can be quite daunting, it is simpler than you think. Here are a few pointers to help you on your way.
Remove your existing Garden Lawn
You can either do this with a spade or hire a turf cutter to remove easier.
Build a tanalised timber frame.
Once you have your area cleared you now need to build a timber frame using minimum 2” x 1” baton. All you do is line the batons around the edge where you want it and drive timber stakes into the ground on the inside of the edge baton. Fix the edge to your desired height using galvanised screws and then cut the top off the stakes level with your edge using a saw.
Lay your Base.
Put a minimum 3-inch layer of hardcore and compact using a wacker plate. Try to make it nice and smooth. This really needs to be just below the top of the edge baton. Once you have compacted down, a layer of sharp sand is put over this. Again you compact and smooth off to create the final finished base. It’s not really something that needs to be overly thick; it’s just to take the lumps out of the hardcore and prevent feeling it underfoot. 2-4 cm is perfect.
Remember your Geo-textile Membrane.
A weed barrier is laid directly on top of the sand and overlapped to ensure that your new fake grass is protected from weeds. It’s a minimal cost and 100% needed. Secure this with small galvanised nails to the edge batons.
Installation of your new Artificial Lawn.
Your new artificial lawn is now ready for installation. The best look is when the pile direction is laid coming towards you. So if it’s the back of your house, then where you most look at it from. If it’s the front of your house, then from the road as this will look better. It’s always best to stand back and look before you make any cuts from either end. Once laid and cut into place simply use small galvanised nails or screws and secure into the batons every 30-40cm. Once laid give it a good stiff brush up and that’s it. Sit back and enjoy you new fake grass for many years to come.
Are You An Astroturf Supplier?
Astroturf is a trademarked company that make artificial grass, most notably for sporting facilities. It is not a type of artificial grass although many people do confuse the two phrases and think that astro turf and artificial turf are the same thing, much like other branded words have become synonymous with the products they supply.
The artificial turf we sell is not that of the Astroturf brand. The fake grass we sell is manufactured in Europe.
