Why Pay for Artificial Grass Installation?

Artificial grass installation is a great investment for your outside spaces. When done right, it can be a hard-wearing and maintenance free alternative to real turf.

No mowing, no mud, and a luscious green lawn all-year-round.

Going it alone

In an attempt to save money, some people choose to forego professional artificial grass installation. Instead, they buy the grass online and install it themselves. Unfortunately, this is where things often start to go wrong.

We’ve seen grass with ripples caused by stretching. We’ve been to fix grass that is curling up at the corners. Other problems include weeds poking through and grass with the texture of an old, worn doormat!

With professional artificial grass installation by a reputable company, these issues very rarely exist.

Why artificial grass installation is worth the price

Great quality grass

First up, inferior quality artificial grass tends to flatten and stretch, causing ripples and lifting at the borders. And there’s no magic cure for a bad product. There is always a danger with buying online as it’s impossible to know the quality you’re getting.

But a reputable company tries and tests the products they use, to ensure a good quality lawn when they’re finished.

It’s likely they’ll provide a range of different piles (grass length) and shades of green to suit various budgets. A good installer will ask lots of questions about how you use your garden and recommend the best option to suit your needs.

Proper Preparation

Artificial grass installation is all about the base. It’s much more important than the quality of the grass. In fact, even the most luxurious artificial grass will fail if it’s placed on top of uneven, unprepared soil.

At The Home Improvement Project, our artificial grass installation starts with digging out the current garden to remove old grass, weeds and any large stones.

Then, we create a new firm, flat base to make sure your new grass stays in place.

The last bit of preparation is to cover the base in waterproof material to prevent water logging and to minimise the risk of weed penetration.

Iron Staining Disclaimer: Rust staining or Iron staining is a natural problem that can occur when specific individual stones within the product that have high iron content are exposed to the environment. This problem is often increased if the site is in an exposed or coastal region. It is not unusual for the problem to take a number of years to be exposed and there is no way of identifying if the aggregate is affected prior to application.

It is not possible to screen the iron content out of the product by using magnets as it is part of the chemical makeup of the aggregate. The aggregates affected by this problem are mostly flint or gravel based type products or aggregates that have usually been quarried from glacial or river deposits. Using Calcined flint aggregates will not eliminate this problem if the raw flint used already has high iron content.

Given that iron staining is a natural occurrence no guarantee can be given or liability accepted for areas affected by iron staining. Since 2016 The Home Improvement Project have only selected aggregates from quarries that have proven records of low iron content. Whilst iron staining can cosmetically spoil the appearance of the affected areas it has no detrimental effect on the render itself.
