A Professional Guide to Installation

Installing artificial grass, yourself in your garden is slightly more complicated than you think there are a lot of things to take into consideration and the surface area can easily be exceptionally large. As a result, seams will be required and are often tricky to make. Therefore, it needs to be done carefully or the seams will show. Whether or not you can do this yourself depends on your skills.

If it is a larger installation you need to make seams; there is specialised glue and jointing tape required. To install yourself you will need to follow certain guidelines which vary depending upon the surface you are covering and planned use.

Why Choose a Professional Installer?

Laying a turf is no funny business and it can be extremely stressful when you don’t know what you are doing. Many people who chose the DIY route often underestimate how difficult it is to lay down an artificial lawn.

If you overestimate your abilities or how easy it will be to complete an installation, you will end up with an uneven lawn that will require professionals to correct it and cost much more than it would have to hire professionals in the first place.

For that reason, here at Welch Mill we recommend that you have a professional to install your artificial grass. This way, you can be sure of the best possible results, put an end to mowing, weeding, disposing of grass cuttings, and expensive lawn treatments.

Allowing you to free up your time to relax, enjoy a beautifully laid green lawn, and enjoy your garden for many years to come.
