Artificial turf has been a popular choice for customers recently. Installed correctly with a good quality product, it will provide a maintenance free and realistic lawn for many years.
Current artificial turf is available in a range of grades and colours. A good quality mid range turf with a good pile thickness (38-42mm) and a blend of around 4-5 different colours is the most popular product we install. Generally ranging in price between £18-£20 a square metre. Cheaper turf will not have the blend of different colours and look very unnatural and the pile is shorter and prone to flattening.
Installation normally requires digging down and a hardcore base installed, levelled and compacted. A weed barrier membrane then installed and a layer of sharp sand laid, levelled and compacted. The turf is then secured to either a timber or concrete border around the new area, this needs installing if it does not already exist. Rolls of turf are generally 4 metres wide so any area wider then this will also require joining together.
