What We Do

All Machinery, Services and Equipment used for your synthetic turf/ artificial grass installation shown below is owned, and operated by Looks Like Grass, therefore keeping outside services and equipment hire to a minimum. If we do require any additional services or equipment for your Garden Transformation it is charged at cost price only and will be in your firm written quote.. We do not believe in making extra money on outside services. This is how we keep our pricing fair.

Your existing grass / excess sand will be removed to  depth of 100 mm.
 
We lay our turf on a 75 – 80mm cracker dust base or for high traffic areas we use 60-65mm Roadbase and 20mm cracker dust base. The base material is screeded and compacted.

After laying turf panels on work area the turf is carefully trimmed around edges.


The turf is then joined by rolling the turf back and placing synthetic turf joining tape underneath.

The turf is rolled back down onto the joining tape.

Then ensuring there is no gap and there are no grass fibers trapped onto the tape we run a turf seam roller over the join.

We then install 150mm turf pins every 400mm around edges and along joins as well as putting them every sqm throughout the turf area as per manufacturers specifications to minimize any shrinkage.

We then apply 10kgs per sqm of kiln dried silica sand as manufacturers recommendation. Many of our competitors use white washed sand from local garden suppliers which is inferior and cheaper. We use a drop spreader designed for this to give an even layer of sand . Most of our competitors just throw it on with a shovel which is difficult to distribute evenly and may be lumpy under foot.

The next step is to brush the sand down to the bottom of the grass fibers to give the turf a natural feel under foot, the sand also weighs the turf down and helps the turf fibers stay upright. We have a power broom (lawn groomer) to brush in the sand and fluff up the turf.
