Why Installing an Artificial Turf Instead of Real Might be a Good Idea?

Natural turf is an excellent choice for any garden, but there may be some cases where artificial grass might be a better idea for you.

Artificial turf is the perfect solution if you’re a busy homeowner, and you only need a low-maintenance grass. If you do enjoy the feel of a good and full lawn, you don’t have to accept real turf as your only option.

AstroTurf also provides a fresh green look, similar to real grass. Depending on your budget, artificial grass can also be a suitable option for your designated space. It is highly recommended for families with children and pets because it is easy to maintain.

Here is how the artificial grass installation service is performed:

  • Area clearance - Firstly the area will be carefully cleared of plants, weeds, rocks, stones and any other debris;
  • Levelling and establishing a base - The area will get levelled, and a base prepared to be established, according to the desired size. Our landscape gardeners may further need to remove or add soil and sand to formulate the base and compact it;
  • Laying anti-weed sheets - Once the base has been prepared and the area size established, our professionals will install anti-weed sheets on top of it. This will ensure weed growth prevention. Anti-weed membranes will also provide the quality and lifespan of your astroturf;
  • Endurance - To achieve long term stability, the artificial grass layers will also build a frame of joists and sharp sand. This will help secure the sheets in the best possible way and make sure your fake turf is here to stay.
