We know of installers that will double layer the underlay. However we would suggest 2 as a maximum. Ideally laid at 90 degrees to each other.
All our artificial grass ranges are designed to keep flat on their own. They will not curl up at the edges or wrinkle in the middle. The only fixing that is required is on edges that are exposed to the wind. The grass will sit on stapled underlay without .
Our Astrostep underlay is 6mm thick so will give a degree of extra cushioning. Some people use a double layer to give 12mm
For slabbed, concrete, patio areas the grass can go directly on top.
The underlay does not need drain holes when laid on top of concrete.
es the underlay would act as a weed membrane, however its mostly used on concrete or decking areas. A cheaper alternative would be our rolls or weed fabric. Would save you around 50% of the cost.
There is no up or down side so either way will be fine.
On a flat surface you will need to add drainage holes. Decking will need drainage holes made every 6" or so between the board joints. Patio areas on slight fall/slope will be fine without holes.
Yes, underlay is only usually used on decking or uneven concrete. You may consider a layer of weed fabric as a double protection against weeds.
Then can I just screw down atificial grass
Some people staple the artificial grass underlay all over to the decking, some just loose lay the grass over the top, using the weight of the fake grass to hold it in place. No right or wrong way, just see works best for you.
