Garden Lawn Base

In order to install artificial grass, a smooth, stable base with proper drainage is required.


The best base for artificial grass is cement stabilised sand, although it is not always necessary. The big advantage of a sand-cement base is that weeds and moles do not stand a chance against it.

If your garden has a solid, level base without moles,… the artificial grass can be installed directly on the ground. First remove the top layer, level and smoothen it with sand to about 1.5 to 2 cm below the required level. Then compact the surface to finish the preparation of your garden for the installation of artificial grass.

Put ekki posts in every corner and at every 2 metres along the edges. They need to be level with the surface in order to fix the geotextile and the artificial grass.

Should you wish to keep the existing paved surface, then make sure that there are no pits, tears or other irregularities.

Balcony / Roof terrace

In order to install artificial grass on a balcony or roof terrace, good drainage is imperative. To this end, a white geotextile with drainage studs is laid out. It functions as a drainage mat and as a buffer against too high temperatures from the sun.
