Can I Install Artificial Grass On Top Of My Existing Lawn?
Jan 20, 2018

If you want to install an artificial lawn then you require a plain surface for its perfect installation. According to Artificial Grass Installers, there are a few things to bear in mind when planning about laying artificial grass on to a permanent surface which I am telling you here.

First of all, make sure the surface is clean and free of debris. So, remove all existing grass and other plants. It is absolutely well worth doing to guarantee a level finish and long life to the artificial lawn.

If installing the lawn over soil, dig up the top 3 or 4 inches.

Artificial grass should be permeable to water so you require a proper drainage system for your artificial grass. So, install drain system for your artificial lawn.

Install a waterproof border along the perimeter if one is not already present, in order to keep the lawn from slumping or separating over time.

If you are concerned about weeds growing through your artificial grass, lay out a geo textile barrier at the bottom of the excavated area.

Unroll the artificial turf somewhere to the side, as it may take a couple hours to recover its shape after being transported in rolls. Wait until the base dries, then make sure it is smooth and firm before you continue. After applying this whole process, lay out your artificial turf.
