Application

Artificial turf is ideal for places in which growing grass is tricky or undesirable. Apply to any size of back or front garden, however irregular your area. Plastic turf is also pet friendly as it’s easy to clean and hard for your pet to dig up. Many customers choose plastic grass for their dog runs.

Plastic grass is a brilliant way to transform your terrace, patio or roof garden with a beautiful lawn that looks freshly cut and naturally green, whatever the season. Create a lush, urban garden in the most unlikely of places!

Characteristics of artificial turf

The fabric of artificial grass is synthetic. It is made up of multiple strands of thin, yet hardwearing, plastic sewn through a latex backing. This backing is pre-punched to help water drain through the surface into the ground below. It’s these perforations that prevent the build-up of surface water on the turf in order to minimise puddles.

We offer a range of artificial grass all with different looks and feels. As you move up our range, the density of the grass increases, providing extra comfort and cushioning under foot.

Common questions about artificial grass

What does it feel like?

As you would expect, plastic grass does not feel like natural grass, however, it is rather pleasant. The grass tufts vary in density and softness depending on what type you install. Our entry-level artificial grass is certainly fine to walk on in bare feet.

Synthetic turf is a great surface for children to play on. It gives them a relatively soft surface to land on. During the summer there is less chance of skinning knees on dry soil patches.

Can I have artificial grass if I have pets?

Pets like fake grass just as much as they like real grass. Artificial turf is difficult for pets to damage by play or by fouling. One of the benefits of artificial turf is its porous backing, allowing pet urine to drain through to the soil below. Faeces will need picking up as usual, but, you can give the area a little wash using some eco-friendly detergent, if you wish. Artificial grass is stain resistant so you won’t have brown patches on your lawn!

Installing the artificial turf

Before you lay synthetic grass you need to prepare the surface. When replacing a natural lawn, the first step is to remove the existing turf to a depth of between 2 to 3 inches. If you have poor draining soil, a 3 inch base is required, whereas free draining soil only requires a 2 inch base.

Once the turf is removed, a geotextile weed membrane is put down over the soil, then the membrane is covered by Type 1, or MOT (crushed stone). The weed membrane laid prior, stops the stones from sinking into the soil and weeds from pushing through. Once the Type 1 is evenly spread and compacted, it’s blinded off with a thin layer of sharp sand. The sharp sand is then compacted and smoothed to create a perfectly level surface, before a second layer of weed membrane is pinned into position with galvanised nails.

Next, the artificial turf is laid out in the space and left to settle and flatten for an hour or two. Once flat, the grass is cut to shape. Where two lengths of grass are used, they can be joined using joining tape and glue. The final step is simply to trim the edges and nail the grass into place with more 6 inch nails.
