It’s very important that the concrete is completely dry when you do this, to ensure the adhesive bonds properly. Artificial grass – your chosen artificial grass, in either 2m or 4m widths, depending on the size of your new lawn. If you’re used to walking on the hard ground under natural grass, it can seem like a strange sensation at the beginning. Soon enough, however, it’ll feel amazing every time you set foot on your new artificial lawn. Do you want extra protection against trips and slips? Don’t attempt to glue the joints down directly to the foam, as each piece will move independently when you walk over the new lawn and this will make the joints visible. In such cases, we recommend removing the concrete and starting fresh with a standard installation from the soil. While this might seem like a lot of work, it is worthwhile to get it right from the very start. 2. Poor Drainage

Although you may hear of ‘non-sand infill’ artificial grasses, there are several advantages of using a sand infill. A 5kg tub will cover approximately 12m, spread at a width of 300mm. A 10kg tub will therefore cover approximately 24m. If large pieces of play equipment will be placed on the lawn and there is a significant risk of head injuries from falls from play equipment then we would recommend considering a 20mm artificial grass foam underlay.

Unlike some comparable products, NeoGrass underlay has excellent drainage characteristics due to the specially engineered drainage channels. The high-quality polyolefin does not trap water or nasty odours. With an average lawn usually measuring somewhere around 50m 2, this can equate to around 5m 3 of excavations to remove and dispose of, and equally around 5m 3 of aggregates to wheelbarrow into the garden. Old, worn looking concrete can easily be transformed into lush green grass that’s perfect for entertaining your friends and family, and for the kids to play on all year round – and, of course, it’s also pet friendly. Avoid laying artificial grass on bases that do not allow drainage or that offer inadequate draining. Concrete yards, tarred surfaces, and paving stone slabs are not the best bases. These materials would have to be removed before laying a well-draining aggregate layer. Alternatively, you’d need to drill drainage holes in these hard surfaces before laying your artificial grass.

In this guide, we are going to be discussing how to install artificial grass on concrete and paving. If your concrete is stable and relatively flat then, in most cases, it will be fine to proceed with the installation. There’s a whole host of benefits with artificial grass, too – it’s very low maintenance, there’s no mud and mess, and it’s perfect for kids and pets.Begin by blasting it with your garden hose, and scrubbing it rigorously with a stiff brush. Or better yet, use a power washer. The reasons for a good drainage system should now be abundantly clear. But how can you make sure that you’ll have good drainage when you lay your artificial grass? Here are some things to keep in mind: As we mentioned above, synthetic grass already has a soft surface. However, a foam underlay adds an extra layer of protection. So, if I drilled holes for drainage and filled with pea shingle, and water didn’t hold, then the slab base could serve as the sub-base, and going forward, put a frame down (i’m a little confused about the 20mm lip you referred to)?, weed membrane, and then 25 mm compacted limestone dust over to ensure an even surface for the grass to go on? At this point is the compacted dust solid enough to be able to drill into to secure my fence supports?

This will not only cause damage to your grass, but the underlay will also absorb and hold nasty smells, such as dog urine.

When people decide to switch from natural to artificial lawn, there is quite a bit of groundwork to be done.

One of the most important aspects of a good drainage system is the sub-base. Before installing artificial grass, you need to lay down a layer of aggregate that water can easily filter through like sharp sand. This sub-base also provides a firm, even foundation to support the foot traffic over your artificial grass. Poor drainage can result in your surrounding flowerbeds being flooded, meaning your plants may drown.Can be installed loose laid, stapled, nailed, or pegged to all prepared bases of wood, sand, or soil. However, your existing concrete may not be perfectly flat, and you may have noticed that puddles appear in certain areas. You’ll save money on turf cutter rental costs, skip hire costs and, of course, on the cost of the sub-base material itself.
