Artificial grass is low maintenance and a great alternative to natural turf. Mrs Sears opted for artificial grass as she wanted the look of a freshly mown lawn all year round with out the need of mowing or maintaining her lawn to keep it in good shape. On Mrs Sears job we removed her old turf and followed this by adding a layer of hardcore which we tightly compacted down to ensure this was nice and level to lay the artificial grass on top of. Before laying the artificial grass we placed a weed membrane over the hardcore followed by a layer of sand to prevent weeds from penetrating through the artificial grass. The sand laid prior to the artificial grass not only allows us ensure the artificial grass is nice and level when we lay it, it also provides a nice cushion and gives the artificial grass a softer feeling.
