Recent Chapel House Artificial Grass Installation
Recent Projects: Chapel House Rear Garden Gets Artificial Grass Facelift
Installation is started by removing the old turf and soil down to the required depth for our subbase. This has to be done properly so as not to have issues later with subsidence or weeds growing up through the artificial grass.
So we start with a geotextile weed barrier, which is followed by a layer of crushed stone dolomite which is compacted into place. The team then screed a layer of granite dust into place and then also compacted it down with our whacker plate.
Now we have a firm subbase which will not subside or allow anything to grow through it. The subbase is ready for the artificial grass.
This is the Ideal artificial grass for a natural look and soft feel underfoot. The grass is rolled out and held down with sandbags while the installers cut and shape the grass. It is a direct replacement for the old grass and is cut right up to the surrounding fences and paving and looks fantastic.
A layer of silica or kiln dried sand is then evenly spread and mechanically brushed into the pile of grass to give it weight. The new lawn is given a gentle hosing, as are the surrounding paths and paving, to leave the garden looking clean and ready for our customers to inspect. The removal of the borders has created a bigger lawn area while keeping some plants and bushes to give the garden colour.
