Leisure Grass Installation

Artificial grass is becoming more popular for peoples gardens, patios, playgrounds and park surfaces in the UK, this will be due to the weather that we have. Artificial grass requires very little maintenance and it will stay looking green and great all year round – no cutting, no watering, no weeding, and no mud! This means that you will spend more time relaxing and enjoying your garden, rather than carrying out maintenance.

Installing Synthetic Leisure Turf

Leisure grass installation is a quick and simple process with our professionals, no hassle or mess and you will have a high-quality outdoor surface installed in no time. If you are thinking of having a leisure grass installation at your home or nursery playground, then we suggest that you do your research and background checks.

These background checks should include checking when they were established and how long for, previous installations and references. This is because the installation of synthetic turf is a skill and you need to use specialist contractors who have a range of experience and who you know will give you the garden which you want.

Installing synthetic leisure turf can be varied to meet your design specification and artificial grass technology has improved. This allows the fake garden turf to be better in the winter and bad weather conditions. It also looks and feels more natural and will not be discoloured by the UV sunlight, which was a previous synthetic turf problem.

There is a variety of fake grass available in different styles, colours, shades and each can be custom to meet your personal specification and this allows you to have a unique surface.

One of the benefits of installing synthetic leisure turf as well as the other main ones are that it is useable in all types of weather. The reason that it is suitable for use in all types of weather is because of its sub-base. The common sub-base for fake grass starts with extracting the existing muddy surface. We will then insert a geotextile membrane over the whole area before edging the surface.

When this is finished a compacted layer of MOT type 1 aggregate stone is poured before the screed of sand is placed with the artificial surface on top. These groundworks provide a porous synthetic grass surface, which is able to drain appropriately and water can flow through into the substrata instead of causing a muddy area and puddle to form on the garden surface.

If you are going to buy fake turf, it is important to buy it from a top seller, who has a good reputation. This is because cheaper surfaces might cost you more in the long run, they could fade and not look very nice. If you want an artificial garden surface installed, we are specialists who can do it for you. We can complete the installation in 2-3 days but this is varied on the size, access and specification of your surface.
