Artificial Grass Installation Types- Full, part or supply only

Full Installation

In this scenario we would usually need to remove topsoil from the area before installing a stone base. This stone base aids with drainage and also allows us to ensure a smooth, level area to lay our artificial grass. Once the artificial grass is in place we apply a silica sand infill which weighs down the artificial grass while helping the fibres to stand upright for longer.

Part Installation

Many of our customers choose to do some of the prep work themselves before we apply the finishing touches. Some choose to remove the topsoil and leave the PST Lawns team install the stone base, while others have the stone base in place. Completing part of the installation yourself can help to reduce the final cost while having the reassurance that the artificial grass installation has been completed by experienced installers. Get in touch with us for more detailed information on our ideal build up.

Having artificial grass installed in your garden means that you and your kids can make use of the garden, no matter the weather. And you won’t have to clean any muddy footprints in the house! Here are some reasons why you should consider installing artificial grass in your garden:

It’s Durable

PST Lawns’ artificial grass products are designed to last. Wear and tear can turn natural grass areas into an unsightly mud patch. Our artificial grass products are manufactured to the highest standards to ensure they last for years and years. We also use a silica sand infill to ensure maximum longevity for our products.

It’s Clean

With artificial grass there will be no more muddy clothes or footprints being dragged into the house. Because our products are permeable, any rain water will simply drain away. Any leaves or debris can simply be swept away, and any mess from pets can be picked up and disposed of!

It’s Safe

Our products are CE approved and ROHS compliant, meaning there are no harmful chemicals used during manufacturing. For added safety, we can also install Shock Pad underlay to provide additional cushioning. Shock Pad is extremely popular in gardens or areas that will be used by kids.

It’s Realistic

We have carefully chosen artificial grass products that look, and feel like the real thing. You will get the benefit of a natural looking lawn that requires very little maintenance, so you can get rid of that lawnmower! PST Lawns’ artificial grass products are also UV resistant so you don’t need to worry about your grass colour fading over time.

It’s Versatile

PST Lawns can also install our artificial grass onto decking, patios, concrete and even rooftops! Dull areas can be transformed instantly with our products, giving you a vibrant area to enjoy. We can also supply materials only for those of you that wish to complete the installation yourself.

What is Shock Pad?

Artificial grass for gardens - PST Lawns fake grass experts

PST Lawns’ Shock Pad is a 10mm thick foam pad that is installed underneath our artificial grass. Shock Pad provides excellent impact protection and cushioning and we would recommend that it is installed in any play area for children. Schools and creches often install artificial grass to give their children an outdoor play area that can be used in all weather conditions. The addition of a Shock Pad underlay will give teachers and childcare assistants reassurance that the children are protected when they stumble, fall or jump on the ground.

Artificial Grass Installation Over Gravel

Brighten Up Your Garden With Artificial Grass

Gravel is often installed when people are looking for a low maintenance, hard wearing garden. It is certainly hard wearing but can prove difficult to maintain, especially if weeds or grass begin to grow up through it. And it can look boring and monotonous after a while.

PST Lawns artificial grass can be installed directly over gravel in most cases, transforming gardens into a vibrant and inviting space. Providing there is good drainage, we can compact and level the existing gravel, top up with a layer of sand and lay our artificial grass directly on top!

In most situations we would also install our Shock Pad underneath the artificial grass carpet to provide additional cushioning underfoot. Shock Pad is a great option for families with young children who will be playing on their new lawn no matter the weather.

How Much Does Installation Cost?

Installing over gravel can also be a cheaper option than a full installation. Get in touch with us today for a free quote!

Artificial Grass for Landscaping

The artificial grass used for residential and corporate landscaping is specifically designed to look and feel like real grass without the need for constant care and maintenance.

5 Reasons to Choose Artificial Grass for Your Garden

Artificial grass lawns

Lower Maintenance Costs

When the weather is destroying your garden, grass lawns can cause a serious headache. Grass lawns require mowing, trimming, weeding, etc. that takes money and time to maintain. Our artificial grass doesn’t need to be mowed, trimmed, or treated with any chemicals. It is also made from 100% permeable material meaning any excess water, including rain water, will soak right through it. We will also ensure adequate drainage is in place so garden puddles will become a thing of the past. All that is required from you is an occasional sweep to remove any debris, e.g. leaves, and your garden will look immaculate with little effort.

Cost Effective

You save time and money by choosing artificial grass. To maintain a natural grass lawn, it requires a lot of time and money. You make one long term investment and then sit back and relax knowing your garden will remain in top condition for many years.

Reduced Allergies

Nearly 500,000 people in Ireland suffer from asthma with about 70% of these people also having hay fever. Allergies are extremely annoying and disheartening during periods of good weather and being around grass lawns may stimulate your allergies. Pollen released by plants and grass can trigger an allergic reaction in hay fever victims, which causes them to feel congested, scratch, itch, sneeze, etc. Artificial grass is a perfect solution. It can definitely alleviate the stress of going outside and sparking an allergic reaction.

Looks Great All Year Round

Artificial grass looks as realistic and as green as natural grass. You want a garden to look as good in the depths of winter as it does in the middle of the summer and artificial grass lawns enable that. Our artificial grass is suitable for playground equipment and garden furniture so it’s ready to be designed, decorated, and customised to the client’s needs.

Eco-friendly & Safe

They are great for the environment in a lot of different ways. They don’t require watering and petrol fumes from a lawnmower. Our artificial grass provide a clean, safe area for your kids to play and it’s also ideal for pets. The non-slip, hard wearing surface make muddy footprints…& paw prints… a thing of the past.
