How To Lay Artificial Grass: DIY vs the Experts

Artificial grass is the ideal way to get a maintenance-free, beautiful green lawn all year round. With less time spent mowing and watering, you can spend more time simply relaxing in your garden either by yourself or with the family. But what about when it comes to laying artificial grass? Many people search for tips on how to lay artificial grass but often, if you want the best results, it can be more beneficial to have the experts install it.

This month at Easigrass Surrey, we’re going to discuss how you can lay artificial grass if you choose the ‘do it yourself’ option, but we’ll also tell you exactly how you benefit if you opt for professional installation.

How to lay artificial grass for gardens | Easigrass Surrey

How to lay artificial grass

Depending on the artificial grass product you have purchased, the installation process may vary. We provide the following process as a general overview of how you might approach the job of laying artificial grass if choosing to do it yourself.

Remove your old turf or paving first. You need to prepare the area you want to replace with artificial grass, this includes removing turf and paving before then levelling the area off to create the right foundation.

Get your membrane down. Next, a membrane layer is needed to help prevent weeds. This layer needs to fill your space and be cut accurately to ensure it isn’t visible at the end of the process.

Don’t forget drainage. A layer of aggregate is needed on top of the membrane to provide adequate drainage.

Lay and cut the lawn. You’ll need to order over and above the size that you require so that you can roll out the lawn and cut it into your edging so that you don’t get gaps.

Glue the edges and seams down. To stop the lawn lifting up, you need to glue your artificial grass down. Pinning is another way to do this but may compromise the membrane without fully sealing the lawn either.

There are other factors to consider depending on how far you’re willing to go – including odour-reducing infills and finishing products – but these are the general steps you need to undertake.

As you can see, this can be both time-consuming and risky when it comes to achieving a flawless finish, especially if you’ve never done it before. Why wrestle with intricate measurements and levels when you can leave it to the professionals for guaranteed, high-quality results that last?

The benefits of expert artificial grass installation

A small number of people may choose to go down the DIY route in an effort to try and save money. And while we can fully understand why cost is a real concern for people in the current climate, it can often be a false economy, with additional costs incurred further down the line due to repair or replacement work.

Here are just a handful of the numerous benefits you get when you leave the installation of artificial grass to the professionals:

Attention to detail – We know what to look out for and how accuracy can yield the best results, especially when it comes to edging and measurements.

Swift service – Because we provide installation for artificial grass all the time, we minimise how long your garden is out of action.

Seamless finish – Because we only use quality products, we can provide a realistic lawn with seams glued perfectly for an invisible finish.

Clean and tidy – Not only will the look of your finished lawn be immaculate, but we’ll clean the area and remove any rubbish so you don’t have to do a thing.

Not cutting corners – We have all the necessary tools and equipment, including tools specific to the process, ensuring we don’t have to cut corners or “wing it”.

Resale value – You may not be thinking of moving now, but if you do choose to move, your professionally installed lawn will look as good as new, increasing your potential property value.

If you want a beautifully installed artificial lawn that will last for years to come, look no further than our very own Easigrass Surrey team. With many years of experience, we can provide an efficient, reliable and flawless service for gardens of any size throughout the region – including Guildford, Leatherhead and Farnham.

  • A wonderful company who supply high quality grass. I bought ‘Belgravia’. It is an absolute delight ... . In fact I’ve purchased from them twice now. I wouldn’t look anywhere else. Joe is particularly helpful and made the entire process stress free. He gives sincere advice, is very attentive and helpful.

  • Excellent! Although there was an initially delay in installation date we cannot fault the customer service and ... the guys who came out to do the installation. Lucy was amazing from start to finish and kept us updated, even when we were away on holiday! Our garden is totally transformed and our dog loves the pet grass too. Highly recommended!

  • From start to finish the service is 1st class. Jackie was very responsive on any question I had, and everythin ... g was explained to me perfectly. The work was carried out with no disruption, and they all worked so hard, even in the horrible rain. No mess was left, and they were very informative to what was going to happen. I am delighted with my now level green grass garden. Would definitely recommend this 1st class company.

  • Thank you Sam and team for a first class job. Grass looks amazing. I decided to have it done after seeing my s ... on's garden that you did last year. Was so nice to have a team who worked in an organised and tidy manner, you left everything looking lovely. Best thing I have ever had done to the garden.

  • The Easigrass team installed our grass in the back garden and it looks fantastic. We were given a free no obli ... gation quote but once compared with other companies the quality of the product won hands down. No pestering phone calls no pressure to take the quote. Once agreed date booked, they arrived promptly with a phone call to let us know they were on the way.Work began without any fuss, estimated time was 2 days, yet everything completed to perfection in one visit. All areas hosed down and clean before leaving. I definitely recommend Easigrass quality product and quality service. Thank you Easigrass, shared photos with neighbours who came to visit and we're sure they will be in touch soon 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻10 out of 10

  • Will and the team installed the Easigrass in the back garden and we can't fault any aspect. from initial ... enquiry to installation they were superb to deal with and professional throughout. Very friendly team, arrived and finished on time and even took the time to hose down the patio on completion. I would not hesitate to recommend them - the finished job is exactly what we had hoped for.

  • I contacted Easigrass Birmingham as I had just had both my front and back lawns done by another company who cl ... early had no idea about how to lay artificial turf. I Spoke with Sanj who came out the next day, to assess the mess the other company had left. Within a week he managed to get me booked in, and I am now looking out at the perfect lawn, I can't believe how good it looks. His 3 lads have done such a good job, all mess cleared away. I would definately recommend Easigrass Birmingham. Its a YES from me

  • Very pleased with Easigrass team from Worthing, West Sussex, business run by Neil and Clair. Bulk of work carr ... ied out extremely well in less than pleasant weather conditions by Andy, who was cheerful and efficient throughout three days work. Good product at reasonable price. Highly recommended.

  • Abdul and Osama from the Fulham, London SW6 area came to clean and restore our Easigrass laid eight years ago ... on a three -storey roof terrace. They did a fabulous job, were really careful taking their equipment through the house, and have made the Easigrass look like new. I would thoroughly recommend the company and all their team - in particular the lovely brothers.

    - Catherine
  • Fantastic service from start to finish! Quote was not the cheapest but competitive. Delivery and collection of ... supplies and waste was swift. Niti and team turned up on time along with all the supplies and equipment. They took care to protect my newly fitted kitchen and floors before starting on the garden. Installation was very professionally carried out and to a very high standard. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thanks so much Easigrass!

    - John
  • Called Easigrass 5pm Monday for grass for an exhibition stand. I had no clue what grass we wanted just needed ... it to look good. I spoke to the owner (I believe) who was extremely helpful, sorted me a quote recommended the grass and collected 9am next day, the guys even helped loading the grass. I spoke to 2 other artificial grass companies closer to our office none offered the advice and professionalism Easigrass did. Will definitely be back. Great Service.

    - Sam
  • Easigrass are exceptional in every aspect; as they removed an old, poorly laid artificial lawn (not by Easigra ... ss!), the sub-par foundation, and by replacing with a dog-friendly product it has rejuvenated our garden. The fitting team are passionate, very hard working and proud to called Easigrass employees. No faults at all with this company.

  • I was always sceptical about having artificial grass, but decided to go for it as tired of fighting with maint ... aining a real lawn all year round, and having mud in and out of the house. I'm so glad I did, as it looks fantastic and is of great quality. I went for the Belgravia which was in my eyes, the most realistic looking with 3 shades of colour. It feels great too. The whole experience was seemless, from the initial contact through WhatsApp (thanks Mason), getting the quote (thanks Abid) to the actual installation. The guys that turned up were absolutely brilliant - worked solidly pretty much non stop, were extremely efficient and tidied up everything as they went along, right to the end. Thank you guys - fantastic job! I highly recommend using Easigrass for a perfect looking lawn. Thank you.
