Project: New Build Where grass would not Grow to fit an Artificial Lawn
This customer had bought a nice new build in Great Park, Newcastle, and like most new build properties the garden left a lot to be desired.
A foot of topsoil over hardcore mixed with other building waste with a turf thrown on top will not go anywhere near winning a Britain in bloom prize.
The customer tried by fitting a lovely new patio and doing their level best to make a go of the lawn.
At some point, they gave up and called in the artificial lawn experts. What greeted our team was a boggy lawn that wasn’t growing and was never likely too.
They removed the offending lawn down to the required depth taking everything away, not leaving a mess and put a new timber frame in to keep the existing borders for the new lawn.
A geotextile weed barrier is installed to prevent any weeds from being able to penetrate through. They certainly won’t get through the compacted aggregate & granite dust subbase that makes up or subbase.
The installers are also mindful of protecting the expensive stone patio the customer had fitted with suitable coverings from the front of the property through to the garden.
The customer chose our Royal Horticultural Society award-winning Chelsea grass famed for its realistic look and fabulous feel underfoot.
The kids or grandkids can play on it, and if you have a dog, it’s easy to clean. As far as maintenance is concerned, there is no cutting, no mud and unlike the old lawn no mess.
The grass is infilled with kiln dried sand and brushed deep into the pile with a mechanical brush. After a good tidy up and hose down, we leave the whole area clean and a delighted customer to enjoy their new Easigrass lawn.
