Bungalow Front Garden Goes Artificial with Easi-Knightsbridge

 

 

Mr and Mrs E are retired and want to cut the maintenance out on their lawn. They also have a young dog which loves to run around on the grass area resulting in it struggling to grow. They contacted Artificial Grass North East and asked us to visit them to provide a quotation to have the work done. On visiting the garden they chose our Knightsbridge range from the samples provided. This was mainly due to its shorter pile height at 32mm and the colour variation between the green of the blades and the darker dead infill that gives it a realistic look.

 

Fantastic job the lawn looks smashing. Thanks Guys

Mrs E - North Shields

 

The installers arrived to fit the new lawn but have to remove the old lawn first. Using turf cutters they remove the top surface down to a max level of 80mm. Once removed they are left with a blank canvas for them to install our proven aggregate base. The base is made up of 2 man layers. Firstly we use a crushed stone (dolomite) and compact this down using a whacker plate. This creates a hard base for us to lay the next layer of ballast which is mix of sand and grit that we screed to create a perfectly flat surface. Following that the geotextile (weed barrier) is laid and pinned in place ready for the new fake lawn to be laid. 

The team lay the grass out where it will be finally laid and weight it down with bags of kiln dried sand so that it does not move during cutting and joining. Once cut and the joins are in place they then spread the kiln dried sand evenly over the surface before mechanically brushing it into the base of the lawn. After a light hose down to wash any residue sand off the new lawn is finished and looks amazing.
