My garden is 7 metres wide and your artificial grass is only available in 2 metres and 4 metres wide, what do I do?
This isn’t a problem. In this situation we would recommend purchasing 2 x rolls of 4 metres wide product which would give you 8 metres width in total. By forming a joint down the middle of your garden, this would ensure you have enough grass to cover the 7 metres needed, allowing plenty of surplus at the edges for trimming in.
How do I join the artificial grass together?
Once a suitable sub-base has been prepared:
Lay your 2 rolls of grass side by side making sure the directional pile on both rolls are pointing in the same direction.
Once you have both rolls in place so there is a 2mm gap between the latex backings on both rolls of artificial turf.
Peel both edges back to reveal the weed barrier membrane.
Roll out the artificial grass joint tape equally down where the joint will be formed and fix with galvanised nails through the sub-base.
Now apply artificial grass adhesive to the tape using a mastic gun and spread using a spatula. (Approximate coverage, 1 tube of adhesive = 4 linear metres of joint tape.)
Gently fold both rolls of grass back down, easing the latex backings towards one another whilst taking care not to trap the pile, loosely fluffing the surface as you go.
Does rainwater puddle on artificial grass?
No, if the installation has been carried out correctly there will not be any visible water puddles.
All of our artificial grass has been specifically designed and manufactured with fantastic drainage properties. Drainage holes are pre-punched into the latex backing upon manufacture and this feature makes your artificial lawn permeable and so has excellent drainage. However, if the current garden is susceptible to flooding, expert advice would be required.
My garden is prone to flooding; can I still install artificial grass?
Yes, artificial grass can be installed but it is essential that the correct sub-base is used.
If you have had previous problems with your garden flooding, we advise expert advice is required prior to installing artificial grass.
