Measuring

When measuring the quantity of artificial grass required it is essential to incorporate an overlap of at least 100mm over each edge for coverage of the timber perimeter.

Survey

Undertake a ground survey to ascertain whether or not the terrain is subject to poor drainage, thereby retaining surface water.
In such cases, in order to ensure a satisfactory base for artificial grass, measures should be taken to install appropriate and adequate below surface, drainage. We would advise the crushed aggregate followed by a sand infill method as in step 4.
