How To Install Artificial Grass

Maughan Construction?Tell You How To Install Artificial Grass

Installing artificial grass is something that takes a lot of precision and skill. But if you fancy trying to take it on yourself then here is our guide how to install artificial grass. It is important to follow each step carefully in order to ensure that your grass is installed not only correctly but effectively too. If you were to hire a professional to do it this would then save both time and money as they know exactly what they’re doing. Plus with years of experience in the trade then this ensures that the job is done to a high degree of quality. Unlike a lot of the self installed artificial grass lawns we have seen.

Firstly if you want to know how to install artificial grass. First of all, you can’t just walk outside and start laying down the artificial grass you need to plan out the area. Make sure that there is nothing that can be damaged in the area when deciding where to place your grass. Make sure that the grass that you want to lay down is to a depth of around 2″ using a spade or other tool measurement. Then secondly you’ll want to create an edging system for the ground to establish the perimeter of the lawn. This is important as this will determine that you keep within the edges when installing the grass and then you can measure the grass according to the area which you want the lawn to be installed.

You can then lay the base layer of the lawn. The best way to do this is to use around 6mm of sand or granite dust. We would recommend using a tool to spread the foundations across the application area which allows you to make surface area smooth. The next stage of the process is to apply some weed membrane to the area of which you install the fake lawn. This will prevent the weed growth whilst allowing water drainage to the area. This is vital to the maintenance of the lawn so that it looks in pristine condition with no weeds growing around it.

Now comes the part that you’ve been waiting for. Make sure that you unroll the artificial turf over the area with huge care to not move the weed membrane. Once you have put it into position. Then be sure to trim the excess artificial grass that you may have in your area which you want the lawn to be laid in. Make sure that when you trim the grass down your blade or tool is sharp enough to cut it down as it will degrade quickly so you want to make sure you have the right tool for the job.

To finish, apply some sand to the lawn. This can be done using a brush or leaf blower. We recommend 6-8 kg of sand per square metre of artificial grass. We recommend brushing the pile before, during and after for the best results. This sand dressing should be done on a dry day and the same day as the installation. This ensures the best quality finish for your brand new garden.

Ted and his team did a fantastic job on my mum's drive . They arrived early in the morning and got stuck in straight away . They completed the job in 2 days as predicted including a few extras for free . Ted takes pride in their work and likes everything to be perfect . A competitive price using the best materials from a local firm . A great work ethic provided an excellent job well done . I would highly recommend Maughan Construction.
We have just had our driveway transformed by Ted and his team. We have been blow away by there work. They were on time, hard working, delivered everything they said they would (even did extra). Ted has been open and honest throughout the process and explained what he would be doing step by step. Top quality work, you can see why they are the highest rated company in the area. We will be having them back for work in the back garden.

Well what can I say about Ted and his team...These guys are just brilliant. Transformed our old decaying red tarmac driveway into a tidy block paved drive with great kerb appeal.I cannot believe how quick and efficiently these guys operate. They are like a well oiled machine and the finished product is just great.Ted's business sense is spot on... he isn't happy unless the customer is fully satisfied with the job. These guys turn up when they say and work like trojans till the job is complete, leaving the site clean and tidy.I cannot praise this company enough. Look at his reviews!. He's getting something right!If you want your drive doing then get these guys in.. You won't be disappointed. I'll have these guys back if I want anymore work doing without hesitation..Thanks again to you Ted and your team.Keep up the good work!

I am a sceptical person by nature but these lads are first class workmen, I can't speak highly enough of their quality of work,exceptional teamwork and Ted is a character who put my mind at rest about the whole job. For any building work I can't rate them highly enough. Its refreshing to know there are trustworthy people still out there. Would recommend them to anyone.
