Tips to lay artificial grass for a children's safe play area.

Want to purchase and lay a artificial grass play area yourself ?    Following these tips to prepare the surface and lay the grass will help build a flat, safe and long lasting play surface.
  • Ask your chosen supplier for help choosing the artificial grass that best suits your budget and needs, there are several types of synthetic grass from budget to bowling green. Plus a foam underlay for play areas with a high fall risk.
  • Remove all existing grass, for large areas hiring a industrial turf cutter speeds this up.
  • Make sure all weeds, surface tree roots and large stones are removed.
  • Fill and spread sharp sand evenly over the surface and compact, preferably with a compacting plate.
  • Cover the area with a weed suppressing membrane to prevent weeds.
  • Roll out the artificial grass leaving enough overlap to trim the edges.
  • If you are using more than one piece of  synthetic grass you will need jointing tape and adhesive. Make sure the pile runs in the same direction and butt the pieces together without gaps.
  • When you are happy the grass is correctly laid, flat, trimmed and close butted, spread kiln dried sand over the whole surface and gently brush in, this helps drainage and keeps the pile upright.
