Supreme Landscapes have extensive experience installing Artificial Grass in Manchester, below is a quick run through the steps involved.
All of the existing turf and vegetable matter has to be removed to a depth of approximately 60 - 70mm. This can be done using a petrol turf cutter to speed up the process. If it is a large area, we would use a mini or micro digger. Once removed this waste has to the be disposed of, which is where a skip comes in use of if over 10 tonnes we would use a grab waggon.
Once clear, a sub-base has to be laid to a depth of approximately 50mm in order to level the area. We predominantly use Type 1 MOT (Ministry of Transport) is a mixture of crushed stone in varying sizes usually 40mm to dust which compacts to make a solid base.
On top of the sub-base we lay approximately 20mm of granite dust, again this is compacted using a petrol compactor plate to ensure the site is as level as possible.
The next step is to lay a heavy duty Geotextile weed membrane which prevents any existing vegetable matter from penetrating the sub-base.
Once the Geotextile has been secured the grass is simply rolled out into position, we tend to leave the grass to acclimatise for 24 hours then trimmed to the perimeter of the garden and pinned down using galvanised nails.
The final step is to lift the fibres of the newly laid grass using a mechanical brush and clear away the remaining debris!
The above steps are just the basics for a simple small lawn. A large lawn for example would require numerous separate rolls of grass joining together using a specific method.
