Transforming your garden with synthetic grass is a fantastic way to enjoy a lush, green lawn all year round without the constant upkeep.

This guide will take you through the step-by-step process of laying fake grass on soil, ensuring your outdoor space is both beautiful and functional.

What You’ll Need

Before you start, make sure you have the right materials and tools:

  • Artificial Grass: Choose the best quality from our range to suit your garden.

  • Weed Membrane: Essential for preventing weeds and aiding drainage.

  • Fine Crushed Rock or Sand Sub-base: For a stable foundation that facilitates drainage.

  • Adhesive & Joining Tape: For securing seams.

  • Landscaping Pins or Turf Pegs: For anchoring the grass.

  • General Tools: Shovel, tape measure, utility knife, broom, and brush.

Step-by-Step Installation

  1. Prepare the Area: Clear the site of any vegetation, debris, or stones. This includes removing existing grass and ensuring the soil is level.

  2. Lay the Sub-base: Spread a layer of crushed rock or sand and compact it to create a smooth, stable base.

  3. Install Weed Membrane: Roll out the weed membrane over the sub-base to prevent weed growth and ensure good drainage.

  4. Roll Out the Turf: Carefully unroll your artificial grass and lay it over the prepared area. Cut and adjust as necessary to fit the space.

  5. Secure the Turf: Use the adhesive and joining tape to fix the seams between the turf strips. Secure the perimeter with landscaping pins.

  6. Add Infill (optional): Depending on your turf type, add a layer of silica sand or rubber granules to help the grass blades stand up and enhance stability.

  7. Brush the Turf: Use a stiff brush to lift the grass blades, giving your new lawn a natural and inviting appearance.

Enjoying Your New Synthetic Lawn

Once installed, your new synthetic lawn will be ready to enjoy immediately. It requires minimal maintenance—just occasional brushing and rinsing—to keep it looking its best.

Whether for playing, entertaining, or simply relaxing, your new lawn will enhance your outdoor living space beautifully.
