An older woman with dog and grandchild with autism. Wanted a safe place for them to play when they come over. also struggles with lawn staying fresh looking with dog urine etc. killing it
With the unpredictable weather in the North East, this garden has had its fair share of tough days, leaving it with a quagmire look and dry, dead patches all over.
This elderly woman struggled to keep up with maintaining her garden in the ever-changing weather and had lost all motivation to carry on mowing it or removing weeds and dead plants.
However, she still wanted somewhere safe for her grandchild and dog to play, and with such a big area available this was an ideal project for Easigrass North East.
We set out to transform this back garden into an easy to maintain safe haven for our customer and her family by first digging up all of the old, dead grass and following suit with the first layer of our sub-base – the geo-textile weed barrier.
By applying this membrane directly onto the soil, we can create a physical barricade to weeds and plants, ensuring no growth through the artificial grass.
Next, a thick layer of crushed dolomite sand is laid over the weed barrier and flattened down, followed by some fine granite dust which is also compacted down in order to level the surface out and prevent any subsidence from occurring.
We can see each of these steps in the pictures taken by our hard-working install team.
After all three layers of the sub-base were fitted, our team then laid down the artificial grass roll by roll and with many lengths to work, the team joined the seams using joining strips and adhesive glue to ensure the joins are undetectable to the naked eye.
Finally, they finished off by brushing silica sand through the blades to secure the grass to the ground and to add some extra weight.
Our finished result provided this customer with somewhere safe and fun for her grandchild to play without the stress of markings and smells from her dog too, what an excellent job!
