Swindon Artificial Lawn

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.

Artificial Grass at a Swindon Special Education School

swindon fake turf school play surface

Acer Paving & Landscaping were pleased to be awarded the contact to install artificial grass in a play area at a special educational school in Swindon, Wiltshire. The area was previously laid to grass under and around play equipment. There were bald muddy patches under the swings and mud was transferred back into the classroom. The school wanted a play surface that was clean, and usable all year round, reducing the maintenance costs and to stop the mud issue.

We began with stripping the old grass using our own, professional turf stripper ready to prepare the base for the artificial grass. The area was then cleared and levelled in preparation for the base.

We always install our artificial grass professionally on a stone base, with a free draining limestone grit bedding layer and weed barrier material. The stone base is crucial on our clay soils, (which make up most of our catchment area). It forms a firm base under the artificial turf, preventing it from sinking under foot traffic and lifting the final grass level up off of the clay soil.

Above you can see the various operations being completed as we work our way down the area. Near to us is the compacted gravel layer, (we use wash graded gravel because we find it drains best). Further back is the limestone grit bedding layer, in the foreground it’s being loosely spread out to a depth of 25mm, further back you can see it has been compacted and accurately levelled.

Once the weed barrier material is laid the artificial grass can be laid over the top.

The artificial grass is being laid here with various edges being folded back whilst the final positioning is made. The artificial grass is then trimmed around the play equipment. Finally the joints are glued, the perimeter secured, (screwed in this case) and the area brushed to lift the pile.

Acer are Approved Installers of Namgrass artificial grass and on this particular project recommended Namgrass Green Meadow artificial grass as its ultra soft, child friendly and hard wearing.

Namgrass Green Meadow is a superb synthetic turf with a realistic brown thatch and soft, multi coloured fibres. It’s covered by the Namgrass 10 year guarantee like all Namgrass products and Acer guarantees it’s workmanship for 5 years, giving you peace of mind that any problems will be promptly sorted, (not that we expect any!).

We have created a brighter more inviting area that the children will benefit from immensely over the coming months and years.

We have also reduced the schools maintenance costs, stopped the mud issue and improved the aesthetics of the play area.

If you have a school play area project within our catchment area, (which covers most of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Worcestershire) and need help or advice on the installation of artificial grass, then please contact Gary at Acer Paving & Landscaping

Synthetic Grass Lawn Swindon

wiltshire fake grass

Swindon based Acer Paving & Landscaping recently finished this synthetic grass lawn in Swindon, Wiltshire. Our client is a Childminder and although they have a small garden they wanted an area that the children could play safely in all weathers. We suggested our best selling Namgrass Green Meadow artificial grass, (the same fake grass we use in most of our school play area installations).

Artificial grass as a play surface offers a brighter, more inviting clean and usable area all year round for the children to play on. There’s no need to worry about mud and mess and no more mowing can’t be a bad thing as well!

If you’re interested in the possibilities of using artificial grass on your property, give Acer Paving & Landscaping a call and we’ll advise the best fake grass type for your needs.

Artificial Grass Lawn Fairford, Gloucestershire

fake turf gloucestershire

Swindon based Acer Paving & Landscaping recently installed an artificial grass lawn in Fairford, Gloucestershire. The area had previously been paved several years ago and needed a complete overhaul as it had become an uneven and untidy surface.

We leveled the area and installed Floweb underlay. This is necessary when laying artificial grass over existing paving as Floweb keeps the backing of the artificial grass 10mm clear of the surface, allowing rainwater to flow freely to  drainage outlets.

The next step was to install Namgrass Green Meadow artificial grass over the floweb surface. Namgrass artificial grass transforms the surface into a clean, safe, lush green, year round low maintenance solution.
