Astro turf question

Recommended Posts

A number of my customers are beginning to ask for astro turf and we lay it.


The surface underneath needs to be prepared well. We take off the top surface, using a digger if we can, then compact the solid ground underneath. We would then put in the grass perimeter - generally wood with stakes. We then fill in with compacted aggregate, then sand.


Finally the grass - this needs seaming and pinning.


Its rather like preparing the ground for laying a drive. I prefer real grass but can see why more customers are wanting us to take up the grass and lay the artificial type.

Many thanks for your reply. I am just in the initial stages of thinking about it, weighing up cost & low maintenance against having to drag myself into the garden every couple of weeks to maintain it (I have a lovely garden, but I hate gardening)!

Depending on cost, I would probably be looking to get it done in the next few months.

Hi we are thinking of having artificial lawn and have received some samples which look good and aren't a bad price but the fitting was a bit steep. Does anyone know anyone that installs this but for a reasonable price?
