Frequently Asked Questions:
Is artificial grass appropriate for a balcony setting?
If your apartment lacks a proper backyard, but you still want to enjoy spending time outdoors with friends and family, then why not create a pleasant space on your balcony? Order artificial turf and easy-installation materials from Better Than Real Grass, and you’ll enjoy the benefits of having a lawn, but with none of the tedious raking, trimming, mowing, or watering responsibilities. Depending on the size of your balcony, you could lay down artificial turf in one area and leave the other area with a concrete or tile flooring.
What’s the best base material to place underneath artificial grass?
One of the best base materials you can put under your artificial grass is sand or soil. For perfect results, lay out your turf on a 33mm layer of sharp compacted sand. Maintain even levels throughout the project, in case you ever have to remove an equivalent amount of . Make sure the sand or soil you use is “clean” because if there is any vegetable or food matter, it could rot underneath your new artificial turf. For smaller areas, you could use a builder’s plank or a shovel. For larger areas, you could rent or purchase a vibrating plate compactor. All these products are available from Better Than Real Grass.
Place a weed membrane directly underneath the artificial turf and on top of the base material to prevent any stray, unwanted seeds from growing. Make sure to overlap the weed membrane by at least 100mm, and move right to the edge of the entire area where you want to put the artificial turf.
