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 took on the job which I'm sure no one else would have - cleaning a wasted space (3 grab waggons of waste plus a truck load), installing new fencing, a retaining wall and extending a driveway. Conciencous throughout and meticulous to detail, what seemed a simple job turned into a real difficult one. We are extremely happy with the outcome.

Fantastic job done, couldn’t recommend strongly enough, we had other companies give quotes but didn’t come across as reliable unlike Ted Maughan and his team of hard workers. Very friendly and informative at every stage of the process, they were quick and very professional. When the Drive was finished they cleaned & tidied up, if you want a great job done with a Friendly & reliable professional team have Maughan do it.

New patio, paths & Bin storeTed and his lads did a fantastic job! Arrived on time, the drive was protected before the skip was put down. The material deliveries were on time. The job was completed in two days as promised. The lads were decent and respectful. Everything was kept and left clean and tidy. They even completed a couple of additional tasks for us. A lot of work completed in two days but to a high standard. Would recommend!

Felt we could trust Ted from the get go, he explained everything properly, arrived early, and was on top of things all the way through. Polite crew, refused drinks-preferring to get on with the work. Never stopped, but didn’t rush anything either. Job was finished earlier than expected-and then put our garden furniture out, and all the big pots in situ. Looks beautiful now-can’t believe it’s our garden! Cleared everything up after themselves-fantastic crew, fantastic job! Delighted!! Thanks Lads.

This was a great experience from the moment we spoke to Ted to the time he and his team finished. Ted came out and discussed our plan and made several suggestions that we took on board. He quoted at the same time and the work was started very quickly and after a day and a half completed. A great job and team who did everything that we wanted. Thanks Ted if we could give you 6 out of 5 we would! A small job a part of our plans for our house and garden. The garden is going to be landscaped once the extension is finished

Ted did an amazing job on our driveway, steps and front. From the minute he came to quote us (turning up at the arranged time and giving us a quote straight away), he has been honest and helpful, giving us different options to suit our price range and what we needed.Ted and his team arranged the time and date to do the work, arrived on time and did the work so quickly and to the highest standard. As we were at work while the work was being done, Ted communicated with us throughout the process sending us photos and calling to confirm after we'd finished working that we were satisfied with the progress. The job Ted and his team had to do was huge and they were finished after a day and a half of work. After the job, our outside was left spotless. Ted then came that evening to check we were satisfied with everything and to talk us through the maintenence we could do to keep the drive looking good.As well as this, Ted did my mum and dad's front and steps around 2 years ago. They had the same, positive experience as we did and their front looks as good as when it was first put down, showing that Ted and his team do a job that lasts the test of time.Thanks so much to Ted and his team!
