Choosing Artificial Grass

What artificial grass is best?

Artificial grass comes in many qualities, colours and sizes. Generally, quality is measured by the blade length of products and the density (measured in grams per square metre). Colours and styles vary from products that try to imitate a natural looking garden lawn (with all the imperfections that go with it) to lush green 'perfect' turf. What artificial grass is best will depend on its application and your personal choices. View our product guide for a full comparison of the Ultimate Grass product range.

Can artificial grass be laid on concrete?

Yes. Installing artificial grass on concrete is easy as there is already a solid base to lay on. If the installation site is external you should ensure that the concrete has an appropriate runoff for rain and that water does not pool on the surface (pooled water on the turf could damage the backing over a long period). Follow our installation guides for a step by step walkthrough.

Can artificial grass be laid on block paving?

Yes, but the effect will be best if the paving surface is uniform and free of lumps/bumps. You should also ensure that the paving has an appropriate runoff for rain and that water does not pool on the surface (pooled water on the turf could damage the backing over a long period). Follow our installation guides for a step by step walkthrough.

Can artificial grass be laid on soil?

Yes but you need to prepare it first and lay a sub-base. Follow our installation guides for a step by step walkthrough.

Can artificial grass be laid on grass?

Do I need an underlay for artificial grass?

You should use underlay for your artificial grass and we recommend using a pad, particularly for the permanent installation of artificial grass on decking, concrete or other hard surfaces. When laying artificial turf on an existing grass profile, it is important to use a geotextile membrane to prevent weed growth.

Ultimate Grass artificial grass is versatile enough to be laid on just about any surface. It can be laid on soil, concrete, tarmac, paving and areas which have previously had natural grass (with suitable base preparation where required). It copes beautifully with sloping areas.
