Artificial Grass Installation

Artificial Grass Installation Dubai, Abu Dhabi

Our irrigation experts will arrive at your property before the main artificial grass installation team arrives. They will cap off any irrigation pipes and test the system to make sure that after we have left there are no issues with the irrigation leaking. The main team then arrives and we begin our first step major in the Dubai Artificial Grass installation process.

This stage is the most time-consuming part of the artificial grass installation. We use a selection of tools to help us move as quickly but we also need to be as careful as possible as there are often irrigation pipes and electrical wires in and around lawns. We will dig down to the required depth, which is usually around 6cm. The reason we need to remove the existing grass is to make sure that there is no living vegetation left in the lawn once we have finished installing your new artificial grass lawn.
Anything that was living needs to be removed so that there is no chance of it re-growing and ruining the artificial grass. Any weeds or grassroots need to be totally removed so that they don’t try and grow back through the grass. Normal sand and soil are also not suitable to have artificial grass installed on it either as it is not stable enough so it needs to be replaced with a more solid base material which we will get onto later on.

Once we’ve removed all existing earth we are left with a rough bump and lumpy surface which needs to be flattened and compacted so that it is as hard as possible, almost like a foundation for the rest of the base. It will still be permeable but will now be hard, firm, and flat, this gives us a great start to the rest of the base system.

We use the Easy-Wacker plate for this part of the base work. This is often the stage of the Artificial Grass installation that confuses our clients as it looks as if we are adding an extra edge to the lawn. Well, actually we are, but it’s not an edge anyone will be able to see. These interlock bricks sit under the grass and give us something solid to glue to.

Many companies use nails, spikes, or simply leave the edges. We never use any metal anywhere near our grass; we have removed lots of old installations where the previous installers have used metal spikes and over time the metal has rusted and has become extremely dangerous, especially for anyone with bare feet, we don’t ever want to take this risk.

Leaving the edges is also not an option; in Dubai and the Middle East temperatures can fluctuate so much during the day and night that the grass will try to expand and contact all day every day. In order to prevent the grass from rippling it needs to be secured down at the edges so that it can’t move. If it isn’t secured it will curl up and ripple within days.

Once the earth is nicely compacted and the new edging is in we fit a heavy-duty geotextile membrane to act as a weed barrier. This Geotextile layer is like a thin paper sheet, it acts as a further barrier to prevent any organic matter that has managed to survive from growing up through the grass installation. As well as preventing any growth is also acts as a stabilizer separating the compacted earth and the aggregate base, which is the next part of the system.

We check the base levels with a straight edge to make sure that when the artificial grass is being installed it is going down on a perfectly flat and smooth surface. Now comes the fun part, your Dubai artificial grass is ready to go down. First, we work out the best direction for the pile of the grass to face. All fake grass products will tend to lean a fraction in one direction or the other.

Some products more than others and some you can hardly even tell but all products will have a direction. We assess the area where the grass is going and where there will be the least seams possible combined with the best viewing angle we make our decision on how to install the grass. Once the uncut rolls are in place we will then firstly rough-cut the grass so it’s easier to work with. We then trim the grass to the perfect size and make sure it’s a great fit for the new base and edging.
