DIY Installing

  • I would like to use your product put on the roof of my narrowboat,would it be suitable and can it secured with appropriate adhesive?

    Use our Flexibond adhesive.  Its a all over adhesive that will bond the grass to any solid surface.  Ideal for concrete, tarmac, stone, tiles, decking, car bodywork etc.  https://www.expressgrass.com/flexibond-adhesive.html

  • Hi is the tape adhesive on both sides?

    No it is single sided only.  Suitable for fixing sections of grass together only.  Will not fix to a surface being covered.

  • Is it non slip suitable to use in a garage

    Yes it will make it slip resistant and will fit just like a carpet flooring.

  • Do your grass ranges need dry sand brushed through it like other astro turf suppliers?

    No sand dressing required in any of our grass ranges.  Just unroll, trim to size and brush the pile.  Easy DIY installation.

  • Hi , we are wondering if we can lay this grass on our fibreglass boat , and if so what would we need to fix it down?

    You can go straight on top, just like a Fibreglass Roof.  If you want to bond it down to the deck, Flexibond Adhesive will be idea.  Will make a great low maintaince, slip resistant surface.

  • Is this product suitable for a small garden?

    The style of grass you choose is really guided by your personal taste.  Some people prefer long grass, some the shorter ones.  Some customers prefer a darker green while others a lighter brighter shade.  

  • Can you put classic artificial grass on top of a lawn?

    Yes, however would suggest a level of sharp sand first to help with drainage and fully level the area.

  • Can artificial grass be laid on slightly uneven paving slabs?

    Yes, however the uneven slabs may show thinner grades of grass.  Don't forget the grass can be loose laid and then rolled back if a problem occurs.

  • Hello,I'm looking to order 4m x 4.5m classic turf with shock pad to lay on my decking, how is the best way to lay grass onto shock pad,adhesive tape,glue or nail,thanks.

    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 .

     

  • Can this product be laid on top of pebbles (pea gravel).

    Yes but you will need to mix in some sharp sand to prevent the pea gravel moving under the grass when walked on.

  • Does the grass need pegging down if laid on sand and soil?

    No not if the sides of the grass are up to a edge. Walls, Paths, Gravel Boards, Sleepers anything that can be used as a edge to prevent wind getting under the grass. The artificial grass will not curl at the edges or wrinkle in the middle, they are all designed to loose lay. Just prevent any exposed edges lifting in high winds.

     

  • Can I lay artificial grass indoors onto a wooden floor? How is the best way to install this?

    Yes you can install just like a carpet.  You may want to fix edges and doorways with heavy duty double sided tape.  We sell 50m rolls via the website.  If you already have carpet underlay and gripper installed then customers have reported good results laying directly on top.

  • Can astroturf be laid on to ashfelt?

    Yes can be laid directly on to an ashfelt type flat roof and well as fibreglass resin roofs.

  • Can I put sand onto compacted mud to level ground and lay turf on top? Want to have garden furniture on turf area.

    Yes sand can go on top of the mud, just needs to be compacted enough so the garden furniture does not sink into the sand base.

  • Does the artificial turf need a weed barrier underneath?

    Our ranges all come with a black marine backing that does not allow light to pass. It acts just like a weed membrane. If you have weed barrier material in place already, its fine to lay on top for double protection. All artificial grass either laid with or without a weed membrane's will be subject to weeds after a few years. These mostly occur around the perimeter and in drainage holes. Don't forget that your grass is artificial, unlike real grass spraying of weed killer directly to these problem areas, won't cause any discolouration!

     

  • Can I lay astro turf onto concrete as want a perfect flat surface?

    Yes concrete that has been laid to a slight fall to allow for drainage is idea. It will create a durable, hard wearing base. Artificial grass installed in commercial areas is usually laid this way in conjunction with flexibond adhesive.

  • Can I lay Artificial Grass onto existing decking area?

    Yes, All our Artificial Grass ranges can be laid directly on top of decking.  Makes it really easy as the base is already levelled and prepared.

    The size of grass I'm after is 4mtrs x 3mtrs will this come as one piece or individual rolls.
    This will be supplied as one piece of grass 4m x 3m in size.
    Will come rolled on a cardboard core and wrapped in plastic.

  • Can Classic be laid directly onto existing lawn?

    Well yes and no. We have had people do this in the past. Cut the existing grass down short and lay straight on top. However your soil type must be free draining otherwise puddles may form on the surface of the grass

  • Will it be alright to leave the grass rolled up outside until ready to be installed?

    No problem with how you are storing the grass, however don't bend the roll as it will crease and you will have trouble removing them when you come install the grass.

  • Can Classic be laid direct onto wooden decking?

    Yes Classic is great on decking, if fact we sell more of this grass than any other for refurbishing woodern deckings. The studded on the back allows the grass to sit above the decking boards allowing water to drain away freely. Airflow to the woodern surface is also maintained helping to prevent rot. Instantly transforms your rooftop terrace, patio or deck. Other benefits are that a 3m roll width is available and there is no pile direction so the grass can be joined in any direction reducing waste.

     

  • When i have laid down my underlay on my decking and puy in drain holes do i need any fixing tape or glue ?

    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.

  • I have a sand base, is it a good practice to just lay the artificial grass without the shockpad underlay?

    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.

  • When I put the shock underlay down do I need to put drain holes in it, or does it allow water to drain through it without me having to add holes?

    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.

  • Have just bought your underlay, which side down do I lay it please?

    There is no up or down side so either way will be fine.

  • Does this also act as a weed membrane when installed over soil?

    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.

  • I will be using this underlay doubled up into a concrete base. Would I need to make drainage holes ? Thanks

    The underlay does not need drain holes when laid on top of concrete.

  • I plan to put astro turf down, but my garden area is slabbed should I put sand down first and then the mat ?

    For slabbed, concrete, patio areas the grass can go directly on top.

     

  • Hi my artificial grass is on concrete and feels very hard,will the underlay make it feel softer to walk on.

    Our Astrostep underlay is 6mm thick so will give a degree of extra cushioning. Some people use a double layer to give 12mm

     

  • I intend to lay the grass on underlay which I plan to staple to decking . Will the decking lines /pattern still show through and secondly how do I fix the grass to the underlay ? Thank you .

    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 .

  • Would be ok to build a few of these on top of each other to give a say 4*7mm = 28m underlay?

    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.

  • I am laying artificial turf onto a concrete base. Would your Multi-purpose adhesive be suitable for this? I only have a length of 8 x 2 metres to lay with no joints.

    You can either loose lay the grass or for an all over stick down you would require Flexibond Adhesive.  Multipurpose is for jointing only.

  • Do you need to put sand on lawn once it as been put down?

    A sand infill is not required on any of our products.  Just unroll the grass, trim to size and give it a good brush to lift the grass blades from their compacted rolled state.
