The advancement in Artificial Grass manufacturing procedures creating a smooth
un abrasive texture combined with a more organic natural looking product
has largely contributed to artificial grass becoming a popular choice for creating
lawn and garden surfaces in north london. 

A.H Garden Services have the experience you need to carry out your artificial
grass installation.

Manufacture of the product now relies on  polyolefin monofilaments
(Yarn like plastic threads) which prevent any irritation to skin on contact.

I am a passionate gardening enthusiast and lover of all things natural and
organic.However there is definitely a place for lawns of this nature in todays
modern garden environment.


Artificial Lawn Installation Advantages

Low Maintenance 
Only requires occasional sweeping or blowing to remove debris and can be
washed with detergents. We must stress it is not maintenance free and
will require cleaning as and when required.


Grass Growth Problems
Poor natural light and reduced ventilation as a result of surrounding buildings,
trees and hedges stunt organicgrass growth and commonly cause bare
patches to develop and weeds to colonize. The materials synthetic
composition eliminates all environmental dependencies.


Accessibility
The permeability of a properly selected artificial grass specification in combination with correct sub base construction will subsequently facilitate adequate drainage of all rainfall and other moisture elements to allow you make use of your lawn all year round regardless of the weather.


 

Laying Artificial Grass in 5 Steps
 

1 ( Excavation

First step in laying artificial grass in london is to remove the existing turf, aggregate, pathway or paving areas required.
A mixture of manual labor and mechanical turf cutters ensure we get the job done quickly. All excavated material 
is disposed and recycled accordingly.

2 ( Weed Suppression

Once the excavated surface has been leveled this material is laid across its surface. A strong weed suppressant
material is essential to prevent future invasion of weeds through the artificial grass surface. We use a geotextile
membrane (strongest weed suppressant on the market) and tape all joints with duct tape to ensure no open
edges are present.

3 ( Perimeter Fixings
To ensure the finished surface cannot be lifted at the edges we fit a treated timber beaten to all perimeter edgings below ground surface level. This allows us to fix the grass down onto the battens and ensures no movement can occur whilst preventing waves in the surface

4 ( Sub Base

Selection of the correct sub base materials and their subsequent installation will determine the quality of appearance and durability of your finished artificial lawn. All of our installations use a combination of type 1 crushed stone compacted with a sand screed spread to its surface and compacted again. These combined facilitate adequate drainage and provide the ideal surface finish for installation. 

5 ) Installation
Once steps 1 - 3 have been carried out correctly we are ready to install the grass. We always leave the grass rolls opened out for a minimum of 3 hours prior to laying. This ensures any creases which have developed from the roll have had time to dissipate. The material is laid on on the works surface, cut and fixed to the the timber edgings and taped and jointed using bonding strips and adhesive. On completion we brush some sharp sand through the surface
