    How to lay artificial grass?


    Can someone advise me on how easy it is to lay artificial grass myself? I would need to dig up a smallish back yard which is currently paved with slabs and install the fake grass in an area of roughly 15ft x 20ft.

    Or is it possible to lay artificial grass on concrete? I’m not worried about the cost for artificial grass so much but is it possible to complete the job on my own in a day and what's the best way do that?

    "You can lay artificial grass on concrete but use shockpads underneath and glue grass down on all sides"

    "Hello. You can run a base of sand over the concrete to make required levels, whacked compact the artificial grass can be laid directly over. Just the gripping pegs you would have to pre drill holes."

    "Use a woven weed membrane (not material)
    Then 100mm of type 1 or scalpings, wacker it with a wacker plate.
    50mm sharp sand wackered.
    Lay out fake grass.
    Use pins/ spikes into the ground to hold the grass firm.
    Then brush over the top with "kiln dried sand" (the area must be dry for this).
    If the area is raised some trades will use a wood border and pin the grass to it.
    It is worth spending the extra to this correctly as it will last much longer."
