Standard Sub base system

hand dig of existing lawn

Excavation

We remove around 75mm of the existing base and place into skips for removal from property,  then build the plastic lumber frame to the required level. This frame is our standard as it will last a lifetime without rotting. Where there is a surrounding existing edge ie patio/fence/wall edging will not be required.

Sub base

Our standard sub base is very high in specification compared to our competitors, Firstly we install the first layer of weed membrane, And then install a 50/60mm MOT Type 1 base compacted using a wacker plate, We then install a 15/20mm Grano dust layer to create a flat smooth finish, again this is compacted using a wacker plate. Then the second layer of weed control is installed prior to installation of artificial grass.

Wetpour sub base

As our many years experience come from within the sports surface industry we have decided to offer the wetpour rubber shockpad base to domestic customers. This is usually found under the majority of artificial sports pitches to break the fall and reduce injury to players. It consists of rubber granules and a moisture cure resin bound together, then laid insitu to a depth of 15mm over the top of the MOT Type 1. This will create a soft spongy feeling under foot, perfect for children. This is an expensive option that will only be quoted for if requested. We do not know another domestic installer that can offer this service in house, We are specialists in this industry!!

Eco commitment

In our commitment to the enviroment we have decided not to offer our customers the wooden edging system. This is because the wood rots within 6 years and is wasted. It also doesn`t last anywhere near the expected lifetime of artificial grass with some lifespans upto 30 years, so is it really fit for purpose? But with the issues with climate change and oceans in focus we have decided to only offer recycled plastic edgings, these will last well over the lifetime of artificial grass . The costs are higher than the wooden alternative but once installed they will last the test of time without any maintenance.
