Laying Artificial Grass

Post date: May 22, 2024

Artificial grass is a viable and versatile alternative to natural grass, providing a lush appearance all year round. It’s a low-effort good looker, with low-maintenance the order of the day. No need for the endless lawn-care rigmarole of watering, mowing and feeding. As more and more people make the smart decision to enhance their outdoor spaces by installing artificial grass, the question arises: where can artificial grass be laid? In this edition of our blog, we’ll explore the suitability of various surfaces for artificial grass installation – including slopes, concrete and decking.

Can I lay artificial grass on a slope?

Unsurprisingly, as not every garden is like a bowling green, we are asked this question often. Yes, you can have artificial grass installed on a slope. In fact, it’s a popular solution for those difficult-to-mow areas and gradients which are steep, where natural grass actually struggles to grow properly. However, installing artificial grass on a slope requires careful preparation so that stability is ensured and slippage is prevented.
