Artificial Lawn Nottingham – Installation Steps
- Turf Removal: The first step in the artificial lawn Nottingham installation is the removal of the existing turf. You need to clear the entire area from any existing grass, plants, bushes and shrubs. Once the step is completed, the experts can water the surface and let it soak for 2 to 3 hours. Then they take out the roots of the existing grass and plants completely.
- Excavation: The next step in the installation of fake grass Nottingham is to excavate the ground up to 3 or 4 inches in depth. Maintenance of the same depth across the length and width at every section is very important. The next step is to take out all the stones and prepare the bed with the help of suitable equipment and tools.
- De-Weeding: The de-weeding tool helps in the removal of weeds from the roots in the chosen section. The power driven garden tiller is one of the recommended tools for completing the task within the shortest possible time.
- Block-Edge: The next step in the artificial grass for less Nottingham is to create the block edges along the length and width of the excavated section. This edge will act as a frame for the layout. You need to provide tiny gaps or holes within the edge walls for water drainage. It is better to shape the top surface in a slightly inclined gradient from one end to the other end. It should be sufficient to let the water drain out from the surface. Alternately, it is possible to slope the gradient down gently from the center towards all the corners and edges. The experts know how to make it effective and still hide it from the visibility.
- Bed Leveling: The leveling of the excavation bed is the next stage. It is possible to do it manually or with the help of a handheld battery operated tool. If you are installing the grass artificial grass Nottingham on a large sports field, you can use the leveling machine.
- Gravel Installation: The next step in the artificial lawn Nottingham installation is the gravel. The experts can use the combination of rock stones measuring up to 0.75” in dimension. They may crush the stones and mix them with fine materials like sand. The mix is poured out on the excavated surface until it covers almost 85% of the excavation depth. Then the experts even out the surface using the hand tool or the surface compacting machine. The compacting can be further strengthened by adding adhesives which can bind the stone and sand together. At the same time it allows water to drain through without any hassles. Then the experts use a medium weight roller to even out the surface.
- Turf installation: Now it is possible to install the turf along the length and width of the gravel compacted area. The experts spread out the turf and cut off the extra edges with the help of a hand held tool. Then they hammer the edges firmly with long metallic nail (Non-rustic) so they go all the way through the gravel into the bed. Similarly the nails are hammered at a distance of 1 foot or 1.5 feet along the length and width of the turf. They can hold the fake grass Nottingham together without sliding it off the ground.
- Turf Filling: In the next step the experts use finely crushed sand to spay on the top surface of the artificial grass for less Nottingham. Then they use a light weight roller to fill the gaps and make the turf “grass blades” erect like the natural grass. As the end user you may choose multiple types of artificial grass Nottingham. The service providers and the suppliers have a vast inventory of nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene and others for your garden, terrace, and patio and sports grounds.

The density for the golf courses needs to be medium to high depending on the different sections of the playground.
- Drainage Parameters: The drainage system could be based on hole-punching or flow through till the block-edges. If the sub-soil is capable of absorbing large volumes of rain water, you can opt for hole-punching. Otherwise it is better to opt for the flow through.
- Pile height: It is better to keep the pile height from low to medium levels for residential and sports grounds.
