Southwick Back Garden Goes Pet Friendly with Fake Lawn by Easigrass 

Mr and Mrs L came to our showroom looking for help with their lawn in the back garden. They have a young collie dog for their autistic son and the grass is struggling to grow due to them playing on the lawn and they wanted a safe area that was low maintenance and could withstand the young dog running around on it. We went out to visit them a few days later so we could give a quote on the grass they selected in the show room. They had chosen our Kensington range due to its thick soft pile and its full consistent colour. 


Easigrass done a great job. Exactly what we asked for

We arranged an install date to suit the family. Our installers arrived and set about a normal install. They removed the existing turf by using turf cutters and barrowing it out of the garden leaving a blank canvas. Once removed the team set about installing a timber frame to retain the area that the grass was to be laid. Following this we then installed our first layer of aggregate to create a solid base to work from. The crushed stone which is yellow in colour is compacted down using whacker plates to ensure there will be no sinkage in the years to come. 

The next layer which is red in colour is ballast which is a mixture of sand and grit and is used to create a perfectly flat top layer for the lawn to laid onto. Again this is compacted down but once this is completed we screed the surface ensuring that the whole area is level. We then add the weed membranes before laying the grass. This will prevent any weeds that manage to grown through the base from growing through the lawn.

Finally the lawn is laid in place and the team cover the area with kiln dried sand to weight the lawn in place whilst final cuts are made. the lawn is then pinned to the timber frame and the sand is mechanically brushed in to the base of the fake lawn. This artificial grass installation in Southwick is then lightly hosed down to wash the remaining sand into the base leaving the new lawn looking excellent. Once the borders are sorted out the garden will be a great low maintenance space for the whole family including the dog.
