FAQs

Can I lay artificial grass on soil?

You can lay artificial grass on a wide variety of surfaces, however, it’s not advisable to lay artificial turf directly on the soil, as this won’t provide the proper means for your new turf to drain when it is inevitably rained on.

What do you lay artificial grass on?

The surface that your artificial grass is laid on should be properly prepared before any turf is laid down. Preparations should start with compacting the surface with a suitable machine, such as a roller or vibrating plate. The ground should then be sprayed with weed killer before a weed membrane is installed to prevent growth damaging the turf from beneath.

How many years will artificial grass last?

Artificial grass can last between 5 and 20 years, depending on how much it’s used and if it’s laid properly. Once it’s been fitted it will require very little maintenance in order to keep looking good for this time.

Is artificial grass good for dogs?

Artificial turf is perfectly suitable for homes with dogs. Fake grass poses no threat to dogs, and they can also use it to pee and poop on. Whilst urine will sink through the porous backing of the turf, you will need to make sure that any poop is picked up and washed off with a hose – much like you would do on an organic lawn.

Can you lay artificial grass on uneven ground?

Artificial grass should not be laid on uneven ground, as this will lead to imperfections and an unnaturally lumpy look in the finished product. The ground where you lay your artificial turf should be properly prepared beforehand – including compacting the surface and laying down weedkiller.

How do you clean artificial grass?

Whilst artificial grass is low maintenance, there are still ways you can keep it clean to ensure that it always looks its best. You can brush your artificial lawn using a plastic rake or a brush. Blow off any debris with a leaf blower, then hose down the area to ensure that any dirt that has found its way onto the turf works its way into the porous backing of your turf.

How do you secure the edges of artificial grass?

The edges of your artificial grass should be secured using galvanised steel U-pins. Other methods, such as adhesives, will not result in an aesthetically pleasing finish. U-pins will ensure that your artificial turf stays firmly fixed in place for the entirety of its life

Can you lay artificial grass on clay soil?

You can lay artificial grass on clay soil, however, it’s important to ensure that the ground is properly prepared beforehand. Clay-based soils don’t drain well, so a stone layer subbase should be installed first that will help rain wick away, rather than settle on the turf.

Is artificial grass slippery when wet?

Artificial grass can become slippery when wet, but no more so than real grass. Unlike real grass, fake turf drains quickly and should also dry faster too. This makes it a much more practical option for families with children who want to get outside and play as much as possible.

What are the pros and cons of artificial grass?

The pros of using artificial grass are that it will stay looking neat and tidy all year round, regardless of the season or weather. It’s much more convenient than real grass too, and won’t require any feeding, mowing, or watering either.

Most importantly, artificial turfs can also work out to be cheaper than real turf to install and maintain in the long run. The drawbacks of using artificial grass are concerned with the environmental impact of its production methods, its initial cost, and its lifespan.

Do you have to remove grass before laying artificial grass?

It’s important that all grass is removed before you any artificial grass is laid down; this will ensure that your new fake turf is given the evenest surface to lie on. Laying artificial turf directly on top of real grass will lead to weeds or more grass growing beneath the surface, leading to lumps and bumps in your new turf.

How do I figure out how much artificial grass I need?

Figuring out how much artificial grass is needed for your installation requires a similar skill to measuring for carpets. Whilst you may be able to do this yourself, we recommend that you hire a professional to measure your garden, so that you can be certain of having enough turf to cover your space.

Do weeds grow in artificial turf?

Whilst artificial turf is certainly more resistant to weeds than real grass, it’s still possible for weeds to work their way through edges or small holes in the backing. This is why it’s really important to lay down weedkiller, followed by a weed membrane, in order to further reduce the possibility of weeds sprouting through.
