Typically, artificial grass is installed to replace an existing garden lawn. But it’s also great for transforming old, tired concrete patios and paths.
Although we always recommend using a professional to install your artificial grass, you may be surprised to find out just how easy it is to install artificial grass on concrete. Call us 0433677402 to inquire.
There’s a whole host of benefits with artificial grass, too – it’s very low maintenance, there’s no mud and mess, and it’s perfect for kids and pets.
Because of this, many people are choosing to transform their gardens with artificial turf.
There are many different artificial grass applications, the obvious one being a simple lawn replacement in a residential garden. But other uses can include schools and playgrounds, sports pitches, golf putting greens, events and exhibitions, and artificial grass can also be installed inside the home, where it can make for a great feature in children’s bedrooms, for example!
As you might expect, each application requires different installation methods and techniques – there is no one-size-fits-all recommendation.
The correct method will, of course, depend upon the application.
Artificial grass can be installed on top of plain old concrete, block paving and even patio paving slabs.
When wet or icy, concrete can be a very slippery surface to walk on.
Moss growth and other plant organisms are a common problem on stone, concrete, and other surfaces that remain shaded and fairly moist throughout the day.
This can also cause the concrete in your garden to become slippery, again making it dangerous to walk on.
For those with young children or who aren’t quite as spritely as they used to be, this can be a real hazard.
However, artificial grass on concrete will provide a completely non-slip surface that, when properly maintained, will be completely free from moss growth.
And unlike concrete, it will not freeze – preventing your patio or path from turning into an ice rink.Leave us a comment below as we would love to hear from you.
