Installing Next 2 Natural artificial grass yourself

In certain applications it is possible to install artificial grass yourself; it cuts down on cost by installing the synthetic turf yourself but in this case you are also responsible for the quality of the installation.The difficulty of the installation of artificial grass depends on the location and size of the surface. The first step is to prepare the supporting surface. The surface must be flat, stable and permeable to water.

Depending on the surface
Installing artificial grass on a balcony can be easy because it is a small surface area and the grass can be cut from a single piece. Also, it has a flat surface onto which the artificial grass can be simply rolled out. In this case, you can easily have the artificial grass delivered to your home and do the installation yourself. All you need is a sharp Stanley knife.

Your dexterity
Installing synthetic turf yourself in your garden is slightly more complicated because the surface area can easily be very large. This means that seams will be required. Making seams is often tricky. It needs to be done carefully or the seams will show. Whether or not you can do this yourself depends on your skills.

Preparation of your garden
Artificial grass fits in every garden. The only thing you need to consider when installing artificial grass is that artificial grass requires a different sub base and ground preparation than natural grass. You can find more about ground preparation in our FAQ or watch our videos how to install artificial grass. Do not unroll artificial grass on the soil but prepare a proper sub base. A good foundation is important to enjoy your garden for many years.

Special accessories
If it is a larger installation of synthetic turf you need to make seams; there is specialised glue and jointing tape required. To install yourself you will need to follow certain guidelines which vary depending upon the surface you are covering and planned use.
