More people opt to swap their old lawns and uneven decks with long-lasting and stylish artificial grass. Suitable for gardens in all shapes and sizes, an artificial grass set-up will help transform your outside space and create an area where you can enjoy rain or shine.
Artificial grass has become increasingly popular among many homeowners as a hassle-free and lush-looking option to traditional grass. It also has several practical uses, and it undoubtedly comes at the cost of the way it looks. If you are evaluating whether you should consider installing artificial grass, here are some of the main reasons to help you in your decision-making process.

Artificial grass provides lush in an instant.

The first benefit is that your grass will be greener every month of the year as it can withstand different weather conditions. You will not need to seed, fertilize, and water your grass for a lush, emerald-coloured lawn with artificial grass. Depending on the size of your property, professional installers can install synthetic turf in a matter of days. 

Synthetic turf looks like the real thing without much maintenance.

High-quality artificial grass looks and feels like natural grass without working too much on the maintenance process to keep it lush and vibrant. Synthetic grass looks great, and you don’t have to worry about mowing or watering it to maintain its lush look. You can forget about spraying pesticides or weeds. Instead, you will save money every month on your water bill.
You don’t have to spend your weekends or nights weeding and mowing, trimming, or sprinkling if you work long hours, care for an active family, or frequently go out of your home. Artificial grass is an excellent choice for those who want a beautiful garden that doesn’t require much maintenance.

Artificial grass is sturdy and durable.

One of the most significant benefits of artificial grass is its sturdiness and durability. As long as you choose a high-quality product and enlist the help of a qualified synthetic grass installer, your brand new lawn should last you for years. Artificial grass is made to be resilient and cope well with several problems. Unlike real, natural grass, artificial grass will not wilt in the sun, drowning in the rain, or suffer in droughts. It means that your synthetic lawn will continue to look appealing despite the weather conditions.

Artificial grass is an excellent investment for your home.

Artificial turf makes for an excellent investment that would benefit your home as it enhances its curb appeal and aesthetics. When you think of the money you spent, it makes your hard-earned money worth it in the long run as you save costs with lawn maintenance costs such as regular sod replacement, watering, cutting, fertilizers and sprinkler systems.

Artificial grass can brighten up your outdoor space.

Your artificial grass lawn’s lively green colour will bring a sense of magnificence and vibrancy to your outdoor space. Artificial grass is a great way to brighten up shaded gardens and bijoux courtyards, bringing liveliness wherever it is installed. You can ask your artificial grass supplier for synthetic grass samples to choose the right shade that is suitable for your preferences in your home.

Installing artificial grass can be used to tackle ugly spots.

As many home gardeners know, growing natural grass is not always the best choice because of its maintenance to keep it lush and vibrant. The grass may not grow well if it is too dry or shady, resulting in a patchy lawn or an area outside that is less than impressive.
On the other hand, Artificial grass doesn’t require sunlight, water, or any other type of environment to look great and aesthetically appealing. Artificial grass can be used to improve the appearance of any area in your garden. To ensure that your garden looks great and lasts as long as possible, invest in high-quality artificial grass.

Artificial grass can also be an allergen abatement.

The grass is one of the most common culprits that tend to trigger seasonal allergies. For those who usually suffer from grass allergies that lead to runny noses and coughing with lawn care, artificial grass is an option to consider to lessen such triggers. Synthetic grass helps in minimizing allergens, which leaves you free to breathe easier without worrying about allergic reactions due to grass and lawn care.

Artificial grass is suitable for homes with pets.

You’ll be able to see how a perfectly manicured lawn can quickly become a mess for your animals, can lead to damage to the yard and make it look patchy. It also causes mud to be drawn back into your home.
Artificial grass can be installed in your lawn or yard to give your pets a place they can enjoy without dealing with mud. Artificial grass does not get much damage from dog urine, so that you can say goodbye to yellow patches in your backyard. Besides this, the surface is easy to maintain, so it’s possible to keep it looking great for many years.

Quality artificial grass can also be suitable for kids and outdoor fun.

Artificial grass is also an excellent option for children. Setting up good-quality synthetic grass in your garden can give your children the perfect place where they can have fun and play. Whether you create a miniature football pitch or use the artificial grass as a designated area for lively games, having a mud-free and long-lasting space enables your children to enjoy your garden or yard.

Artificial grass can be used in many applications.

You can opt to install artificial grass on your lawn, rooftop, patio, or an at-home putting green. Artificial grass also helps create a special low-maintenance pet area for your property. Besides this, other applications for artificial grass include golf courses, commercial landscaping, playgrounds, and sports fields.

Expert tips for natural-looking artificial grass

Why you should double check your Artificial Turf measurements

When measuring up for artificial grass installation it’s crucial to know exactly how much artificial turf you are going to need for your project. Just imagine being short a few square metres on your project or you have massively over-ordered your artificial turf. Double check your measurements and also ensure you order slightly more artificial turf than you think in case there is miscalculation or errors.

How do you prepare the ground for synthetic grass?

Preparing the base so that it is rubble-free, smooth and flat is essential to the success of your DIY turf-laying project. Skip a step and you risk unwanted lumps and bumps. 

Remove any existing turf and soil including any stones, pebbles and debris. We suggest you dig to around 7.5cm deep.


  1. To prevent any regrowth from weeds and unwanted plants, place a plastic membrane over the entire cleared area. 
  2. Apply a thin layer of crushed stone over the top of the plastic membrane.
  3. Use planks of wood to create a new layer over the top of the crushed stone. 
  4. If you are laying your artificial grass over the top of concrete or paving stones, it’s essential to check that it is level. If not, you will need to use a spirit level and create extra height with additional concrete or other materials. You will also need to make sure that there is adequate drainage close by to handle excess rain and water.
  5. We recommend that you use a foam underlay on the top of the concrete to create a more comfortable feel underfoot. Easy Turf suggests using 5mm of foam underlay on top of concrete and pavers to give some softness.
  6. Use a compactor where necessary to ensure a level and robust finish to your foundations.
How to roll out and peg your synthetic grass

Once you have the foundations in place, it is time to peg out your turf, a crucial step before you permanently fix it into position. Follow these steps to ensure the best results.

Slowly unroll your synthetic turf over the carefully prepared foundations.
Use your nails and/or pegs and place at even intervals along the turf but about 30-40cm from the edge to hold it in place (the space between the nail and the edge of the grass will be held down by the adhesive tape used in step D).
If you are using artificial grass on concrete, paving stone or hard floor, use industrial-strength synthetic turf glue instead of nails. As before, leave a gap of approximately 30-40cm to the edge of the grass to allow for the use of tape.
Add the next strip of artificial grass and use the same principles, either nailing/pegging or glueing in place and leaving the space to allow for taping.
As you lay the consecutive strips, be careful to ensure that the pile of the grass is running in the same direction (if the fibres are pointing in alternate ways you will have an uneven stripe in your grass). If in doubt, use your hand to feel which way the threads are pointing.
Once you have covered all your area with synthetic turf you are ready for the next step. Use your industrial strength tape to connect adjoining grass strips. Apply tape along the entire length of one piece of grass and then ‘connect’ the section next to it by laying that on top of the remaining tape. Flatten and ensure that it is a tight fit without any gaps or unstuck areas.

What is the purpose of sand on artificial grass?
  • The sand helps the ‘roots’ of the synthetic grass to stay upright, regardless of use; this avoids the grass appearing to flatten on high traffic areas. 
  • As the sand helps the grass to remain upright it does create a variation on the angle that they point which resembles the blades of real grass. 
  • Sand helps to prevent a flattening of the blades in high traffic areas.
  • Using the correct type of sand (only use artificial turf white sand) allows for excellent drainage without washing away the sand or soaking up excess water. 
  • The sand remains within the turf and doesn’t rub off on clothing or on kids and pets who choose to roll on the grass.

Can I Lay Fake Grass On Dirt

It’s not advisable to lay fake grass on topsoil or any sort of soil. This will leave you with an uneven finish for your freshly installed artificial grass, and also have weeds slowly grow in over time.

How To Lay Artificial Grass On Sand

Why use silicon sand with your artificial grass?

Once you’ve laid your artificial grass you have two options in your next steps. You can either leave the grass as is or add sand to make it appear more natural.

Adding sand to the grass can help it appear more natural as it helps keep the grass upright. To add the proper amount of sand ee recommend that you allow for approximately 10-15kg per sqm for coverage. Using a rake or a broom, sprinkle the sand on top of the grass and walk it in to make sure that it falls deep down into the pile and settles at the base. Then, water the lawn to help the sand settle down within the grass.
