Do I need a professional to install Eco Grass?
In certain applications it is possible to install artificial grass yourself; it cuts down on cost by installing the turf yourself but in this case you are also responsible for the quality of the installation.
The difficulty of the installation of artificial grass depends on the location and size of the surface. The first step is to prepare the supporting surface. The surface must be flat, stable and permeable to water.
It is often extremely easy to install artificial grass on a balcony because it is a small surface area and the grass can be cut from a single piece. Also, it has a flat surface onto which the artificial grass can be simply rolled out. In this case, you can easily have the artificial grass delivered to your home and do the installation yourself. All you need is a sharp utility knife.
Installing artificial turf yourself in your garden is slightly more complicated because the surface area can easily be very large. This means that seams will be required. Making seams is often tricky. It needs to be done carefully or the seams will show. Whether or not you can do this yourself depends on your skills.
If it is a larger installation you need to make seams; there is specialised glue and jointing tape required. To install yourself you will need to follow certain guidelines which vary depending upon the surface you are covering and planned use.

How to measure the area for your artificial grass?
Eco Grass artificial grass rolls come in 3.75 meter widths and up to 30 meters in length (112.5sqm total). The width does not vary but we can cut the length to size. Always allow 300mm extra for each measurement to ensure movement at either end. To estimate the amount of infill required – work on 5 to 15kg of silica sand for every square metre of artificial grass.
Eco Grass artificial grass joining tape is required wherever the artificial grass joins up to another piece of artificial grass. It comes in rolls of 10 meters long x 150mm wide. Simply add up the lineal meters of where your joins are.
If you get to design your own area, it is most cost effective to keep the measurements as close to 3.75m as possible. Example: 3.75m, 7.5m, 11.25m. This means you will reduce the amount of wastage.
Curves and unusual shapes will require more joins and more wastage which you will need to factor in when working out your measurements.
