See the websites of our recommended suppliers for examples of artificial lawn installations. Enjoy productive gardening this summer with more time for your plants and trees and less time cultivating the lawn.
Synthetic Grass Maintenance
Your lawn should require no attention for up to ten years if you have a sand infill synthetic grass. Occasional cleaning may be required but this occurs naturally when it rains. If pets use the artificial lawn then you should consult the pets section which discusses sanitation.
Please see the sports grass section if you are interested in how to keep your grass in good condition for sports use.
Weeds and drainage
Artificial lawn products are designed so water will pass through the base. Flooding should therefore not be a problem but it may be necessary to landscape your garden prior to astro turf installation. Landscaping would be a requirement if the ground is not reasonably flat.
A membrane prevents weeds from interfering with your synthetic grass. The weed membrane is laid during the installation process and is a standard feature of any artificial lawn.
