Swindon based artificial grass installer Acer Paving & Landscaping has been busy creating a fake grass lawn in Swindon, Wiltshire. Our client has small children and wanted a maintenance free, safe place for the children to play.
We began by stripping the old turf with our professional turf stripper. This can be done by hand but takes much longer!
We then install a gravel base, this is important on our clay soils, both to improve drainage and provide a firm support to the artificial turf.
Once the gravel base is leveled and compacted it is topped with a free draining limestone grit bedding layer. The bedding layer allows the correct levels to be achieved to form the perfect lawn.
The limestone grit bedding layer is leveled before a weed barrier material is laid over the top.
Once the area is covered with the weed barrier it can be secured around the edges so there is no creasing or movement when the artificial grass is laid. Now we have a good solid base on which to lay the superb Namgrass Green Meadow artificial grass.
The artificial grass is laid out in position, the joints are checked to make sure they meet. The artificial grass is then folded back on each side of the join before laying jointing tape along the length of the join and then applying glue.
The artificial grass is then carefully laid out back over the glue and tape taking care to ensure the joint is still in the correct position.
The position of the edges are then checked again before being trimmed and secured.
Finally to finish the artificial grass is the given a brush to fluff up the blades of grass.
Acer Paving & Landscaping have now transformed another Swindon garden much to the delight of our client and their children. They now have a safe, clean and welcoming area to play all year round.
