Provided the surface that you’re looking to lay your artificial grass roll onto has been properly prepared - meaning that it's smooth, clean, and level - it's easy to roll and install onto a suitable concrete base. Allow your grass to settle for a few hours once rolled out, giving it a chance to remove any creases before fitting.

You’ll find a specific section on installing fake grass on a concrete area in our detailed guide - as well as instructions for sand and stone bases, and information on how to join two pieces of grass together in large areas.


How To Clean Artificial Grass

To clean up spills on your artificial grass, start by mopping up the mess with a cloth or towel, before scrubbing with some washing up liquid and warm water. You can use a cloth or brush on the individual fibres before rinsing with cold water.

Weedkiller isn't necessary as it is with a traditional lawn, but you might decide to apply a couple of times a year to prevent wildflowers and weeds from growing through the membrane, depending on the surface your roll is installed on. Leaves and other general dirt can be easily removed with a broom, rake, or leaf blower.
