What is the process of installing an artificial lawn?
Artificial lawns come in a variety of pile lengths suitable for a specific application. We can provide lawns that are certified for sports such as tennis, football, golf and hockey as well as the added benefit of under-lawn cushioning for play areas. The lawns we install come with a 10-year warranty, are made without heavy metals or harmful chemicals and are UV resistant.
The process of installing an artificial lawn may take a couple of days depending on the size. The process involves:
Removing the top layer of grass and soil to attain a flat area
Adding an aggregate of Gap 7 (Crusher dust) and compacting
On top of this, we put weed matting and pin
The artificial grass goes on top of this, and joint seams and fix to box edges where required
Then we sweep using a mechanical sweeper and add dry kiln sand on top of the grass
We do a final sweep to ensure the sand has settled into the lawn fescues

Credit card payment is available with a 2.9% surcharge.
Can Artificial Grass be laid on concrete?
Yes, we can also lay artificial grass on decks, concrete, pavers etc, as long as the surface is even. In these situations we will use adhesive to bind the grass to the surface.
Won’t my pets destroy the grass?
Actually a large majority of our clients have pets (in particular Dogs) as artificial grass works excellently with our four-legged friends. Natural grass will burn and die back with constant urination and will never look particularly appealing. The grass we use is permeable, meaning that dog and cat pee with go straight through without affecting or staining the grass. Number Twos can easily picked up (as you world with natural grass) thus the grass will always look great 365 days of the year.
We also have worked with the New Zealand Blind Foundation is installing grass for their Puppy Breeding Programme in Homai, Manukau. They trialed an area, only for management to request we do every puppy enclosure as it reduced cleaning (the pups weren’t bringing in dirt and muck into the indoor enclosures) and reduced the chance of staff slipping on the dead grasses (ie mud).
