The best surface for artificial grass? Your first answer would likely be ‘soil’, because a synthetic lawn is often used to replace a natural one. Do you want to cover another substrate with a soft and cosy texture without the hassle of maintenance? Synthetic grass has a wide range of applications because it can be easily laid on numerous ‘soilless’ bases as well. The versatility of artificial grass comes to the surface.
Soil, concrete, wood, brick, plastic; you name it, we can lay artificial grass on it – as long as you have a level area with good drainage. Here’s an overview of some suitable surfaces and their main features to take into account before proceeding to the installation.
Artificial grass can be installed on a variety of surfaces, including:
1. Soil: Artificial grass can be installed directly onto the soil, provided that the soil is level and well-draining. However, it is important to prepare the soil properly by removing any rocks, debris, or organic matter that may interfere with the drainage of the artificial turf.
2. Concrete: Concrete is a common surface for installing artificial grass, particularly for commercial properties or areas with heavy foot traffic. It is important to ensure that the concrete is level and free of cracks or other damage.
3. Wood: Wood is also a potential substrate for synthetic lawn. Consider the time you’d gain if you didn’t have to spend your time scrubbing, sanding, painting and varnishing! It’s important to clean and seal the wood substrate to promote drainage before the grass installation. Our innovative polyurethane (PU) backing is an excellent solution to prevent mould.
Artificial grass is versatile: It’s clear: artificial grass “thrives” on almost any type of surface. The surface itself won’t cause any trouble if you opt for a synthetic lawn. However, carefully consider which type of artificial grass fits your needs and the specific points of attention of the substrate before installing it. In any case, we recommend consulting one of our professional installers to ensure long-lasting enjoyment of your evergreen lawn.
