In an age of lockdown where we’re spending more time at home than ever before, artificial grass has never been so popular. It’s easy to see why. It’s low maintenance, long-lasting, and durable. Who wouldn’t want to wave goodbye to the lawnmower? And weeds!
And yet, although artificial grass is hassle-free, installing it can be quite the opposite…until now.
5 common issues fitting artificial grass
For many people, the trickiest piece of the jigsaw when laying artificial grass is the edging. In particular, finding a reliable – and long-term – method of securing the grass to the perimeter. An incorrect fitting could lead to the following issues:
- Nails were the traditional installation method but can become dislodged over time which can be dangerous
- Timber batten edging can rot which can ruin the appearance of your grass which may need to be replaced
- If your lawn edges aren’t properly secured this could lead to your artificial lawn coming up in strong winds
- Worm casts (soil deposits from worm burrows) can appear at the edges leading to a bumpy, uneven surface
- If the artificial lawn hasn’t been edged correctly, the grass can crease, ripple, or wrinkle spoiling the appearance
If the edges of your artificial lawn come up, not only does it look unsightly, it’s a potential trip hazard for you and your family.
