Our landscaping professional will start by clearing the existing area and then laying a 65mm bed of porous crusher dust to prepare it for laying.
Often we will lay a high quality road base beneath this, if the bed requires deeper filling for a nice smooth finish. To form the level surface, we compact the area to 50mm.
We then lay down the synthetic grass, pinning it in place with galvanised pins to stop rusting, before carefully brushing up the fibres in line with manufacturers recommendations.
Then you are left with a beautiful, natural looking synthetic lawn to enjoy for decades.

How much does synthetic grass cost in Australia?
✓ Type of Artificial Grass – this product comes in many different shades, texture, fibre length, and level of resistance to environmental and outdoor elements. As the quality gets higher, so does the cost.
✓ Size of the Area – installing fake lawn in a large area is more expensive than doing it in a smaller area. There is obviously more materials and labour needed in order to complete the project in a large lawn than the smaller one; hence the higher price.
✓ Existing Landscape – do you have an existing artificial or natural grass installation or an irregular-shaped lawn, more work is needed to be done. The installers have to remove the old installation and make sure that the surface is smooth enough to have the new ones installed.
✓ Location – your location in Australia could also affect the cost of artificial turf installation. For example, in Western Australia, fake turf installation may cost around $55 per square meter. Meanwhile, in New South Wales, the cost could go as much as $90 per square meter.
How long does artificial grass last?
What is the best base for synthetic grass?
· Tarmac – the most commonly used base material and the most popular one mainly because of its amazing combination of features – both porous and hard. The synthetic turf must be installed on top of a solid material, but at the same time, must allow water to naturally drain and prevent sagging. Tarmac can offer all this and more.
· Asphalt – the best alternative if tarmac is not available. This material is quite hard and solid like tarmac but not porous.
· Concrete – the hardest the and firmest than the other base materials. However, like asphalt, concrete lacks porosity. This means you have to spend a little more extra to build a drainage system.
Is artificial grass pet friendly?
How do you clean artificial turf?
To maintain its rich green colour all year round, basic cleaning such as spraying down with water should be done on a weekly basis. Meanwhile, brushing off the leaves and fibres with brush should be performed as monthly maintenance.
