What kind of base do you use?

One of the main reasons to buy artificial grass is to save yourself from muddy messes.


We always lay an aggregate sub-base when installing to ensure easy and free draining.

After the existing lawn is removed to a depth of between 60mm and 80mm, a sub-base consisting of type 1 limestone is then installed to a depth of between 60mm and 70mm along with sharp sand to a depth of approx.20mm.


Limestone is a porous type of aggregate, which allows for reliable drainage. This is then compacted and smoothed off at an even and consistent level ensuring a stable draining base for years to come.
