From artificial grass in Harrow to artificial grass in Wandsworth, Artificial Lawn Company installs synthetic turf across the London area. In a city that’s as densely packed as London, outdoor space comes at a premium. As a result, very few people have large garden spaces, meaning a natural lawn isn’t always an option. Instead, a number of London residents have a balcony or terrace, wherein they choose to install synthetic turf to create a natural-looking outdoor space that they can retreat to after a long day at work.

London is among the most popular locations for installing artificial grass, which is why it’s of the utmost importance that our customers are given an insight into synthetic turf installation throughout the area. To that end, detailed below is everything you need to know about artificial grass installation in London.

How to Install Artificial Grass

London falls within our catchment area for installation, meaning you don’t have to worry about perfecting the installation process yourself. That said, we like to provide a transparent service, which is why we’re always happy to share our standard installation process.

We will start by preparing your lawn, which will involve measuring the area to assess how much grass & other materials will be required. Following this, we’ll remove the existing lawn (if there is one) and level to garden to yours specification. Then, we’ll lay a base of granite dust if the artificial lawn is to be laid on soil. Next, to ensure your lawn stands the test of time, we lay a geotextile membrane, as this prevents weeds from growing out of the turf. This is the point that we would actually install the artificial grass and trim the excess lawn to shape. Following this, we join the pieces of grass and, finally, spread and brush the filler sand.

It's worth noting that the installation process will vary with each individual project; however, detailed above is our general approach.

Artificial Grass Installation in London: What You Need to Know

What to Put Under Artificial Grass

As previously mentioned, if we’re laying artificial grass on soil, we lay a base of granite dust and a geotextile membrane. Despite this, if we’re installing an artificial lawn on a balcony, terrace or other hardstanding areas we tend to use an underlay. This promotes better drainage and prolong the lifespan of the grass. Typically speaking, though, if your balcony or terrace already has a flat surface and is not exposed to rainwater, we may place the synthetic turf directly onto the surface.

Which Artificial Grass is Best?

The best artificial lawn for you really depends on your needs. For instance, do you have pets? Will the lawn see a lot of footfall? Are you looking to reinvigorate your outdoor flooring on a budget? Regardless of what your needs are, Artificial Lawn Company has an artificial grass product to suit. Our range includes the following:

Thanks to our comprehensive range, you can rest assured that you’ll find something to suit the requirements of your outdoor space.

How Much Does Artificial Grass Cost?

The cost of artificial grass itself will vary depending on the type you opt for. Our most affordable artificial grass is Bargain Lawn, which costs £9.99 per square metre. On the other end of the spectrum is our Supreme Lawn, which costs £28.95 per square metre. Following the price of the turf itself, you then have to consider the installation costs. Again, this expense will vary depending on the extent of the project; for a rough quote, you can contact us and let us know about the conditions of the project.

How to Look After Artificial Grass

Aside from being ideal for unique outdoor spaces, a lot of homeowners opt for artificial grass because it requires very little maintenance. To keep it in pristine condition, you simply have to give it an occasional rinse and brush with a large broom. This will help keep it clean and rid it of any debris, such as fallen leaves. Although we’ve seen many people vacuum their artificial grass, we’d never recommend this. This is because the suction can remove the infill sand from the grass area, and any moisture from the lawn can damage your vacuum cleaner. Similarly, we don’t recommend the use of anything metal on your artificial lawn such as rake, as this can be too harsh and damage the fibres.
