The existing grass area is removed to an approximate depth of 25-30mm. Sharp sand is then imported and consolidated evenly over the area. This is then carefully levelled ready for the artificial grass to be installed. This type of base construction is most suited to areas with minimal use, where aesthetics are the main consideration.
The natural grass is removed to an approximate depth 60-80mm. A type one stone is then imported and consolidated to form a solid, level base. A final level is achieved with a fine layer of either sharp sand or fine stone. This type of base is most suited to areas of high use such as games areas, wheel chair use, play areas, pathways, courtyards and communal areas.
Shock pads are a useful addition to any area of fake grass. The use of a shock pad gives a softer, cushioned feel underfoot. In children’s play areas with climbing equipment, the shock pad will enable the correct critical fall height to be achieved. The artificialgrassit.com technical advisers can advise you on a suitable shock pad for your specific needs.
