Installing Artificial Grass (R80 – R230 per sqm)

All our installation teams are highly trained professionals to fit quality garden lawns across Gauteng & Western Cape. Rest assured, this is done with the utmost care for your property, and the minimal amount of fuss, mess, or noise.

The DC Turf synthetic grass range is fully porous and UV stabilized and is suitable for placement on sand, soil, tarmac, concrete and decking. The fully porous system is used for most outdoor artificial lawn installations on top of a soil sub-base.

Artificial Grass Installation Process

1. Remove existing soil

This can be done by hand if it is a relatively small area being fitted with artificial grass. For larger areas, use a turf cutter. However, it must be taken into account to never build your base on top soil!

2. Compact the area

Confidently compact the ground by using a vibrating plate or roller. These can usually be hired from equipment hire centres for inexpensive prices.

3. Add the weed barrier

Once your base his been compacted, add a weed killing membrane on the area to be covered with synthetic grass. This will not only reduce the likeliness of weeds growing through the artificial grass but will also allow vital drainage.

4. Add the sub base (to allow drainage)

Place down a minimum of 50mm of sharp and compacted sand or stone. If the sand is too dry, add a little wet sand and compact using your vibrating plate or roller.

5. Add the concrete borders (non decorative, only for securing the grass)

We then add a mixture of cement and and aggregated stone to create a 10cm border around the edges of the area. We ensure that the concreteedging is not higher than the final grass line, to allow the water to run-off the turf.

6. Lay your artificial grass

Carefully roll out your artificial grass, being careful to not disturb the weed killing membrane as this will damage the levelling work on the base layer. Remember, your grass has a directional pile, so it will all need to face the same way if you have any joins. We recommend laying the grass with the pile leaning towards your house or main area so that it looks more natural.

7. Carefully trim the edges

After the settling process is complete, cut and trim the artificial grass, using a sharp Stanley knife, ensuring the grass is cut neatly around the edges.

8. Glue the joints together

In order to compose the joins of your grass, use our high-quality outdoor tape and glue, following the instructions on the products. Lay the tape and apply the adhesive, before pulling the grass edges together and applying some weight to them. This can be achieved with plant pots, stones or other heavy materials.

9. Brush the artificial grass

Finally, the fibre may be relatively flat from being rolled up, so be sure to brush against the pile to bring the fibres of the artificial grass upright. Then sit back and enjoy your artificial grass lawn!

There are a few companies out there that offer services, products and most important to me is that lesser spotted customer care. DC turf and their team give all the above and there is particular care taken on assisting with full service customer care. The on-site team were professional and installation was top class. The support team kept us happy and their pricing is reasonable. Give them a call, you won't regret it
