Do I need to install an underlay for artificial grass?
You don’t need an underlay beneath your artificial turf – but it can have a huge impact on the way your lawn looks, feels and wears. For example, artificial grass underlay helps to speed up the installation process. It can be applied over the top of almost any surface (i.e. concrete or wood) and creates a base for your new lawn to be laid out. In addition to this, a good quality underlay will provide a bouncier and softer surface when installed underneath fake grass. This makes it perfect for walking, running, or just sitting and playing with the kids. Something else worth noting about artificial grass underlay is that it is a hard-wearing alternative to the real thing. It can prolong the lifespan of your turf – helping you to save money in the long run.
Is artificial grass expensive?
Artificial grass typically costs more than real turf. However, this can vary depending on the size and shape of your garden, the product’s pile height and weight, and who installs it. The larger your garden is, the more artificial grass you will need – and this will be reflected in the cost. A longer pile height will give you a fuller, lush green lawn whereas a product with a shorter pile height will provide your garden with a neater effect. Often, artificial grass with a shorter pile height will be cheapest as less plastic is used. To keep your costs down, you may consider installing fake grass yourself. However, if you don’t have the necessary skills and expertise, you could make a mistake. This will cost you more to rectify than hiring a professional in the first place.

How long does artificial turf last?
Artificial grass will last between 7 and 15 years, depending on the amount of foot traffic it receives. For example, if it’s located in an area in your garden that will be rarely walked on, it will last longer than an area that’s used frequently. A great way to make your artificial grass last longer is to opt for a higher-quality product. By making sure that it’s installed properly, you won’t need to worry about poor drainage or weed growth. Although fake grass doesn’t need as much maintenance as real grass, it still needs to be looked after. And making sure that pet waste is removed immediately will eliminate the risk of discolouration and damage.

How much artificial grass do I need?
Artificial grass is measured in m². To calculate how much you need, think carefully about the shape of the area you want to cover. If your garden is square or rectangular, figure out the length and width of your lawn in metres and multiply them. For circular gardens, start by measuring the width of the oval area and then measure the length of it. Multiply both of these dimensions together to find out how much artificial grass you need. Alternatively, if your garden is on an angle, measure the widest part in metres. Once you’ve done that, measure the longest part and multiply these measurements. After laying and cutting the turf to shape, you will end up with some wastage. However, it’s better to have a little excess than not enough.
